Try this monitor with a different computer and/or try your computer with a different monitor. This will tell you where the problem is. :- )

My computer starts flickering at boot, then the screen goes black!


It is probably the monitor. Hook the monitor to another computer and test.

I have an ASUS model X83V and my screen has been flickering (not in brightness, but actually going fuzzy and "jumping"). The flicker can take upwards of 1 hour or more before it goes away, but usually...


my son has this same machine and after a year of almost daily use it developed this same flicker you describe, about every 4 secs, then it got much worse, almost like an old tv rolling. i took it all apart and inspected it all. didn't see anything really troubling.

yesterday it worked fine all day while i installed a bunch of updates for another problem. i left it on all night doing some other things. this morn when i got up it was still ok. then after a while it started in again, every 4 secs.

so i've been troubleshooting the damn thing all evening and have come to the conclusion its from over heating, probably cause of the crappy heat sink connection. i noticed if i take it outside in 40 degree weather and leave it a couple mins on the hood of my truck, it goes away. bring it back in and after 5 mins it comes back. take it back out and its fine again in a few mins. also, yesterday my house as much cooler. my fire was out and it was in the upper 60's in here, today as soon as it got to 76 in here, and it was above that all day, it started acting up

so i think my next step will be to try and make a better union between the chips and the heat sink itself. you should try a test with yours. start it up, make sure its flickering, put it in a cold space for a few mins. just be caustious of condensation.

powersource is good.motherboard might be the problem.harddrive can be tested by putting it in
another computer and see if it boot up.to test the mother board unhook the cd drives and harddrive.turn
on the computer and see if the gateway logo comes on.if it still does the the samething with everything unhooked
then it might be the bios.you might have to flash the bios and reinstall it.to do this i recommend you take it to a
shop.if the comp runs with everything still unpluged and stops then you know that you have a wrong
setting on the harddrive or cd drive.if you got two of anything make sure that you have a slave or master.if you nned me to
write a guide email me at gamecrazy944@yahoo.com or if you got anymore questions.

I have a HP Pavilion laptop ze4900. Every time I move th screen, the display either goes off completely, or it goes vey dim and I cannot read anything from it. The only thing I can do to get a display


You could have a defective screen - a defective inverter or a CCFL lamp.
To determine if you have a LCD screen or video card problem, read this and follow the instructions.

Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:

  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
  • Picture flickering with dim display.
  • Picture flickering on and off.
All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp

Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Laptop screen flickers then goes very dark


Did you check the sleep mode or power off mode? What do you do to make it come back on? Sounds like it might be getting too hot and/or going bad.

Sony vaio pcv w20


I have a PCV-W20 and I had the issues with the flickering screen and blackouts. After reading a few postings i discovered the issue was a faulty CCFL. There are two in this unit. I did not know that when I ordered just one. When it arrived I had already taken the unit apart and was ready to replace the lamp. After soldering the connections the figuring out how to put the unit back together, it worked! After replacing the CCFL lamp the unit does not experience blackouts.

Like I mentioned this unit has two CCFL lamps. When I pulled it out I noticed one was a little darker than the other. I figured this was the one that was bad, and luckily it was.

I do have a line running across the screen now which I have not been able to figure out. Maybe it has something to do with the light escaping from the side. I'm not sure.
