My laptop was working fine the other day... Came back to it the next morning and the screen wouldn't come on and it kept resetting every 30 seconds or so. Once I finally got it to boot and get to sign in page the screen was all scrambled. But, everything else worked I could log in but couldn't do anything...

Anyone got a solution?

So... That being said... All I gotta do is replace that... Sounds like its time to get rid of this thing and get a new one... Maybe I can get a few bucks for it once I erase hard drive on ebay...

Thank you.
