Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

I would open it up and inspect the capacitors in the power supply section first since it is simple thing to do, look for bad caps with bulging top or seal, see failed monitors (common problem) due to bad caps: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Blinking screen


The screen might be going bad, or the lcd cable could just be loose and needs to be reseated. The lcd would have to be taken apart to get to the cable.

Plug in an external monitor and see if thedisplay shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crtmonitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vgaport. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will showon most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systemswill require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold downthe FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thruF12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will havethe icon of a display.

If the external monitor you plugged in blinks then your video card has an issue. If not, it's the lcd screen.

White horizental lines across the LCD Monitor.


This is a high voltage horizontal output problem. Could just be a loose connection or an intermitant component failure. If you can get into it, check for any loose connections. Sometimes this can also be caused by a large accumulation of dust. Make sure you unplug it before opening it up.

Problem with LCD


Indeed offered solution is most likely correct. However I can suggest you to ensure if dots/lines appear even before windows screen comes. If yes thats the conclusion that your LCD Module has dead pixels or internal connectors has connectivity issue. Consult a local Hands on technician. LCD module might be costly you can always use an external monitor with your laptop.
Good luck. Happy new year.
