I was referred to do a new hardware forum since my problem seems to be not virus related. I hope someone can help me out to diagnose what really is the source of the problem. i am experiencing Blinking Screen. the screen totally blacks out like Christmas lights turning off and on. I am using Acer laptop (Aspire 4710) with a windows XP OS.

Thanks a lot for sparing me your time.

Blacks out...when? Is this a continual flickering?

Does it ever appear normally?

And I see it's a laptop...

Yes it is flickering in some instance for a couple of minutes and sometimes it stops.

There are instances that It is not flickering though so I really do not know where the problem is. Sometimes it happens right from the start.

Someone helped me do some Virus scanning through the other forum but we could not find anything so, he referred me to do this cause this might be a hardware problem

Well...I don't own a laptop (just tore one apart, prefer desktops), but I would suspect that the display screen is on the way out or there is something internal interfering with the proper functioning of the video aspect.

One of the persons here with more experience/knowledge will come along and (hopefully) provide some more useful input than I.

If this is under warranty let the manufacturer take care of it. If not you might want to open the case and check the connection of the ribbon cable attached to the screen.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
