um well its obvious somethings not right it could range from a numberous amout of problems it looks like your power port may be faulty but its almost out of the answer it could be something wrong with your power supply affecting the gpu.This problem isnt something you or i could fix buy doing something within the computer by tweeking something.The best thing to do is to take it to your nearest repair shop.I havent heard of a laptop doing this, its a first time thing.

Laptop has jumbled horizontal muli-colored lines flickering and rolling, can't see screen

You should try to connect a VGA monitor to your laptop and see what happens. It sounds like a video card failure, and often the hdmi and the VGA are powered by different graphics chips.
If it works with a VGA monitor, try to install a new driver for your graphics card. Otherwise, try a system restore. That often solves your problem.
If a restoration doesn't help, your graphics card is probably broken. Get a new laptop. Avoid Acer :)

My display flickering

1. Check the cables for lose connection in the connectors.
2. Check if there are interferences of magnetic fields from other gadgets.Yes, check if near your laptop, you haven't placed speakers, florescent lights, cell phones, radios and any other electrical device.
3. Check if there were any changes in the display settings like when some computers are upgraded from their original versions. For instance, many laptops that have been upgraded from Windows 95 versions to higher versions, have shown problems of flickering due to poorly calibrated refresh rate.
4. Many a time, it may occur that the pixels on your LCD laptop screen/LCD Monitors are damaged in certain area and so you're unable to see proper images. If that is the case, then you don't have any other choice but to change the entire screen and replace it with a new one.
5.To check if there is no problem in your video card, connect another monitor to your laptop through the VGA port. If it shows any faint images or jumbled images, then the main reason for your laptop flickering screen is your video card.
6. if you don't find that there is any other problem you can detect, there must be problems within your computer monitor screen, otherwise It is advisable to go to your laptop service center and get the laptop checked. If you find that your laptop screen is still in warranty period and you find problems of flickering, it is best to get it changed.

The screen has just started to play up, 1st it started to flicker, then gradually it gets darker until eventually you cant see anything.

Please have the lcd screen checked because there could be a possible problem on the screen already or possibly the connector inside the laptop for the screen.

Monitor goes blank

Try restarting the computer in Safe Mode and then check. In case it flickers in Safe Mode too, then the LCD screen might be damaged and you might need to replace 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...

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.
