Re: LCD problem

If the screen flickers and goes white, it could be your lcd screen (the board on the lcd) or the lcd cable. i would suggest replacing the cheapiest which would be the lcd cable. You could also use the laptop externally and use it that way. Or just get a HDD caddy and change the securities and youll be able to get your info on any other laptop.

As I open the lid of the laptop to view the screen (logging in etc) the display would flicker and eventually turn off at a certain point, say about 1/3 of the way. if I close the lid back to that point I...

sounds like it's off track a bit...i really can't say for sure... your best bet would be to just take it to a computer shop and let them deal with it (-_-)

Screen is flicking again and agin Model is ACER Travelmate 5730

If the screen flickers when the lid is moved, then it is most likely the LCD ribbon cable has a bad connection to the LCD controller board. If it flickers without lid movement, then it is probably the inverter module for the LCD, but if it flickers constantly and especially if there are white lines that stay constant accross the display, then it may be an overheating or failing GPU. Check the air vents on the unit and make sure that there is no blockage if the latter is the case.

Hope this Helps.

Im using HP 540 with windows 7 and my screen at the taskbar keeps on flickering.. pls help is this hardware or software problem.

it's not a software problem ... i think u can be able to see such sort of problems frequently while you are moving the lid... it may be the problem with with tour motherboard or lcd...u can check it by adjusting the lid angle ,if u can see the flickering it is the problem with your lcd...or else,if u are experiencing the problem,while the laptop is in idle state is the problem with your motherboard... no need to worry dude.....this problem can be solved by refixing the connection between the lcd and contact your hp service center...

it is probably a loose or crimped LCD cable, either on the main board or on the back of the LCD panel itself.

Laptop screen constantly flickers and whites out

Your Bulb is DUE, you need to change it, Don't do it your self contains mercury. Your LCD is good IF you do not have bad PIXELS. This white and pink lines shows as pixel problem but it migth also short on LCD, if you placed something heavy on Laptop. You may remove and sent the LCD for repair or all laptop to tech.
You may also need to check inverter. I give service around the Country but it is up to you. My company name is JMC TECHS INC. Registered in Miami Florida. (Check jmctechinc@gmail if you like to contact me.

Sony Vaio Laptop VGN-CR240E LCD screen flickering

Mostly it is the problem of the screen's internal mechanism. Something has got loose and moves here n there when moved. If you can, you replace the malfunctioning parts or consult service centre for it.

Hp Laptop screen flicker

I am sure that the issue is related to the cable that connects to the LCD Display or the LCD Backlight.
There should be some connection shortage because of which the LCD flickers few times as stated by dan231.
I Recommend you to get the Notebook examined as soon as possible before something really goes wrong...

Hp Laptop screen flicker

Hi, i noticed that when I unplugged my HP the screen stopped flickering. I then re-plugged in the power, when to the Nvidia control settings, to PowerMizer, and changed 'ac outlet' to Maximum Power Saving.

Not the world's greatest solution, but hey, working laptop now.
