    Could be an issue with either.

    Try moving the screen back and forth, and gently bending the screen (especially near where it connects to the base). And, connect it up to an external monitor to test. Let us know what happens in each case.

    Nothing happens when moving screen etc and when connect to external monitor its perfect as normal

    Well, I'm going to say it's your screen or card. IMO not worth it to replace the screen on the laptop - just get an external one if it's an issue.

    Thanks for reply bud im sure its screen as it works fine externaly so its not card and looked at lcd cable that seems fine .. only thing that confusing me is the 40 pin on back of monitor.. there is another connector so there is 2 connectors on back of screen but only 1 lcd cable . so thinking the other 1 is like a spare for something

    Heh, yes, I meant to only say 'screen'. Since you made sure card works haha.

    Not sure what the other cable is.

    Ah yes, the 'where to buy screen' thread. I thought it was familiar! :D

    Maybe more people are like me - I don't live in UK, and I'd buy from eBay or some random online shop anyway.
