My screen is showning flickering white lights

My CPU is about two years old. I have had no problems with it until now. 2 problems have happened at the same time. The first is my wireless card went bad. I know how to fix that problem. The one I can't fix is the screen is flashig white light across it. I can't view what is happen on the screen anymore. The CPU seems to be working fine but the screen is showing nothing but those lights.

Re: My screen is showning flickering white lights

Hi, To confirm that indeed you laptop CPU is working normally, you can try plugging an external monitor. This will also verify that your onboard video or memory is not the issue. Assuming you have tried the above, as to the screen flashing, it can probably be the LCD panel display. It can either be the video converter or your backlight inverter (or CCF fluorescent tube). Any of the two would require opening the display panel and component level repair. Should you not be comfortable cracking the display open and circuit analysis/diagnosis, you may need the services of a qualified professional. Hope this give you an idea and work out for you. Good luck and post again how things turn up or if you need further information. Kind regards.

Half the screen is black

The white dots are most likely to be failed pixels in the LCD screen. When the picture elements fail, they switch to clear and what you see as white is the backlighting.

The overheating issue in laptops is generally caused by dust and fluff blocking the cooling fins and ducts or a failed cooling fan, but it could also be caused by a hung process which runs the CPU at a high processing speed. Press control (CTRL) ALT and DEL and look at the task manager and see if you can see any processes that are running constantly near or at 100% to eliminate this being the problem.

The failing display is unlikely to be related to the overheating issue.

My new Samsung SM-T310 tablet screen flickers so much I cannot use it. is there a fix?

find out if the actual display or just the back lights are flickering first .
turn on a good flashlight lay it on the face of the display when lights go out if the picture remains then it is the back lights not the display
but either way i believe you will end up replacing the display (backlights included( and probably LEDs) ) i will look at availability and feasability of this, come back with item model number and year

Screen display on iPad 2 changed to blue background with slight flickering. This happened while using - it did not drop. Reset has not solved problem.

Turn it over on your lap or on something soft like couch or carpet. Karate it chop it on the apple logo. Start softly and keep using more force. Folks have even used a hammer to do this but I don't advise it. You can also drop it face down on carpeted floor. Your ipad is likely stunned and needs to be stunned again to return to normal.

Nexus 7 black screen

I had this and fixed it! I saw the solution on some google group and tried it.

The problem is the battery is disconnected. Pop off the back cover with your fingernails (and rage since you are so upset about your tablet not working)

There is a big silver thing (battery) with 5 or so wires leading into a black plastic plug thing. Push the plug into its port, replace cover, good to go.
