    Send it for repairs if you think it still has value. i notice it is a refurbished laptop. Which means it was damaged or broken in some way prior to you buying it and was restored in some way. This is possibly a common fault with this brand. I have not heard of Everex, so it could be a rebadge of an Acer or another of the cheap brands built to the $ rather than to a quality. A new screen if its needed may exceed the value of the unit, a video card + labour would be about 2-300 dolarrs to fix. You have to decide if this cost is worth the money Thanks for using FIXYA

You may have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashes on and off or displays reddish pink hue. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickers on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replace the CCFL lamp.
To determine if the video card or the LCD is faulty, connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight. It could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out, this is the most likely case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.
