The screen flickers, have to reboot it

Sometimes in the middle of any process my screen just went crazy, the contents flickers - they scroll over and over the screen. The only way to solve it is to reboot it. A friend indicated that the resolution might be the issue. However, after I reduced the resolution it still happens, just less frequently.

Start by checking Dell's support site for updated video drivers, then uninstall the drivers for the screen from the device manager, then reboot. It will find and reinstall them. If this doesn't cure it, then this is going to be a hardware issue. Start by checking the screen connections, they sometimes work loose. If the connections are good and the problem persists, it's going to be the inverter or screen, and unfortunately, replacement is your only option.

Hi, my laptop a HP Omnibook 6100 has a problem, if its moved the screen flickers and the system freezes, if a move it again it comes back to normal. Sometimes the screen gets messed up after flickering and...


This is a common HP fault it's caused by the chip just about the touchpad. Unfortuately there is no great fix for this, infact it will get worse before it gets better. I have similar problems with a customers laptop (HP NX6110), I took the motherboard out and refolwed the solder on the chip but this only fixed the problem for a couple of weeks and then it went back to doing the same thing again. Try to find a computer engineer to perform that and see how long you can get out of it. Sorry there is no quick fix.

Hope this helped

Remove the battery and disconnect the power adapter for about a minute.

connect only the AC then boot it back up. If you can see the Compaq splash screen and still unable to load Windows, re install OS.

If you could not see the splash screen, too bad it could be a motherboard issue,

Hope this helps.

My NC-10 screen just went crazy. I can tap on the


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.

My screen on my laptop flickers sometimes so bad you can't use it and my cursor goes crazy and i have to shut down for a while . When it flicker it kind of acts when a cell phone or something is too close...


Hello...
I had the same problem before (actually, twice) and it was the LCD - 'twas broken. So I returned it to the company and they replaced it (twice). Thanks that it was still covered by its warranty, I didn't pay even a single cent. You really can't use it well if the screen flickers but if you can not return it right now (hope it's covered by warranty), you just adjust the light of the screen by pressing FN and F9 (for light). That way, you can use it but expect that it will turn white afterwards and so you can't see the cursor again. It's only your broken LCD that needs to be replaced. Hope this helps... If you've got more questions, just feel free to ask more questions here, thanks! tc :)

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...

Screen flickers and then turns gray


Access BIOS and test if the flickering continues.
If not, it is a Software problem, do a full system recovery
If yes, it is a hardware issue, better contact Toshiba tech support to have your LCD repaired if you are still in warranty.

If your not in warranty, you need to check out the LCD harness that might have been loosely connected.

Hope this helps...
