  1. I got a HP laptop. Offlate,my screen has been flickering a the extent that i cant even see a thing. If i give the screen a small jerk i.e move the lid up and down, the flickering stops for a while and starts again. The flickering has got so severe now that the screen does not stay stable for more than a couple of minutes.

    Is it just a loose wiring problem? Could i solve this at home with a proper set of screwdrivers?

    If not, could you please let me know what kinda problem this is, and how do i work it out?

    It sounds like you have a break in the ribbon cable that runs from the base to the screen. I have the same problem with mine, but it is ok if I don't try to close the lid. These cables get stressed every time the lid is opened and closed.

    It may be the display cable or the LCD Inverter.
