Could be an overheating problem... Get a hardware monitor and see what the cpu temperature is. PC Wizard is a good program and it's free.

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.

Flickering screen

Take it apart and check the wires that power the screen. If moving the lid has any effect, you've likely got an intermittent open circuit in the wiring that goes through the hinge. You can try to figure out which one it is, but those wires are usually too small to splice without micro-miniature tools. I'd search for the best price on a replacement screen for when you get tired of it or it finally goes away completely.

If you can give it a desktop-replacement role where the lid doesn't need to move much anymore or run it off an external monitor permanently, you may be able to extend the useful life at little or no cost. A docking station would be preferable here, since running a direct external monitor over the long term will likely fry the motherboard after a year or so of constant use.

Last choice is to slick the drive, sell it for cheap on ebay, take that money and the money you saved on not buying a screen and put it towards a new one if you want to invest in an upgrade.

Laptop Cursor problems when using MSword and Outlook Express

I've had this problem before. One of the "shift" keys on your keyboard may be stuck. Try unsticking the key by tapping on it or firmly pressing it. Also, the mouse key may be sticking as well. Try a different mouse.

Only shows compaq on screen

I work with Compaq computers now and usually your problem points to the hard drive. I know Compaq's will stay on that screen if the hard drive has failed. Try another hard drive would be my suggestion.

Hope this helps.

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...
