My friend bought a new new laptop dual core last October. her problem now is her screen, there is an angle on tilting the screen so she can have the best resolution and viewing on it. tilting it not on the desired angle causes break horizontal lines. she said it was about LCD problem. there is still warranty to that, but she doesnt have time to go there..

Re: about neo laptop
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Offhand, it does not sound like an LCD issue. If it were, the horizontal lines would be consistent no matter what angle. I am inclined to think more on cable/connector problem. All that is required is to re-seat the connector, arrange the how the flex cable is laid out and ensure that all terminals are connecting right. While this is relatively an easy/quick repair, it would be to your friend's disadvantage if a third party would physically work on the laptop. The laptop has to be opened to expose the connectors/cable. Doing so would void the warranty.

Try to open it carefully, and all you have to do is to stick some strong adhesive tape to the LCD cable that is connected to the LCD screen. Try the difference with power on pc and try to push smoothley with finger.
Angle the screen to the light. If you can see a faint screen image then it's probable that the backlight's inverter has either failed, it's cable has become damaged or the backlight has failed. Both of these can be tricky to replace unless you have the right tools, but can be done provided you can get a spare. Usually it's a tech job.
If the image is not there then it's either the screen itself, the graphics chip or, more likely, the ribbon cable that connects the screen to the motherboard.
You can rule out the graphics chip by plugging the laptop into a monitor.
Of course, the ultimate problem is that you've bought an Advent laptop! And most techs agree that Advent produce the worst laptops in the world. :(
