    The video chip on the motherboard mite be overheating, or the LCD display is failing

    "can you check if its motherboard problem or just the monitor?"

    This is a laptop srn3o,
    No warranty available? If you plug in an external monitor and it works, the LCD display could be bad, but there still is a chance that the motherboard is bad too. If you shine a flashlight on the LCD screen, can you see anything on the screen?

    Loose cable for the display? Mine's come out cause I was being a little too rough with it.
