Question about Computers & Internet
Hey. I have disassembled my laptop to clean the fan and when i put it back up my wireless card wasnt working. After opening it up again and having fixed that, the monitor started flickering. I have opened the display (without opening the whole laptop again as in the laptop's book) and after seeing all cables seemed secure and not taking any of them out or moving them too much, it has now completely stopped working, stays black and it will not come on at all when i start the laptop. not too sure what this means or what I should do....
Unplug the power and remove the battery. Next, hold the power button for about a minute. Than, reattach the power and attempt a boot.

SOURCE: my laptop monitor flickers
Don't worry about embarrassment, there's a world of difference between software and hardware.
The flickering is most likely either a loose wire or more likely a partially snapped dry solder joint where the florescent panel behind the screen is connected. Since the laptop lid is opened and closed frequently, even the smallest of movements over several years can stress a dry solder joint to the point where it cracks.
Unfortunately it's not a user serviceable thing, but you may not need to return it to HP - a local specialist in flatscreens or more ideally monitors is likely to be able to mend it. Since it's so far out of warranty anyway it's not too much of a risk to use someone not HP approved since they can't invalidate a warranty that's long expired, so get your local phonebook out and start searching for someone who can give you a quote on a flatscreen backlight repair.

it sounds possibly that it is going into hibernation. a single press of the power button should bring it back alive.
also feel the bottom of the laptop.... if it is getting close to meltdown you need to clean the dust and dirt from the heatsinks. the fan area may appear to be clear but all the junk gets blown against copper heat sinks so you need to remove the covers to get at it.

This might fix your problem. There is a problem sith the bios on select F500 models. Yours might fall in that category.

It sounds like you may have a loose inverter cable or the ribbon cable behind the screen is loose.
Is the machine in warranty? I
