So I have an ASUS Ultrabook 14 Touchscreen laptop using windows new interface. I did not update to Windows 8.1 it's still , I believe , Windows 7.

 

A couple months ago , the thing started to blink / flicker . It would flash a black screen once and awhile and it happens more often at full battery.

The weird part is , on certain websites it starts to blink more frequently , I'm just trying to finish a paper and my eyes are aching !

 

I have tried resetting incase of virus , but I'm sure it's not a virus.

I have a little brother and he steps on it if I put it on the couch and It has dropped , plenty of times .

( I know right ? Five star care totally .)

If blinks nonstop (like a strobe-light) , I plug in the charger and for some reason it stops for awhile. < I use this method until it starts blinking again (If I unplug it goes CRAZY) then I turn it off.

 

I'm super confused and did not buy a warranty so I can't return for a new one , I bought this laptop earlier in Feb. Is there anyway I can get this fixed ? Or is there a source to this issue I can get rid of ?

 

I apologize if my post is hard to follow .

sounds like the little connector that connects the laptop motherboard to the screen itself is going bad (have had this happen before) Tell me, is this laptop still under warranty?

you maybe able to find a old, non functioning laptop on ebay you could part out for it. You may simply try removing the screen and double check the connection to make sure its not loose, its not hard-usually a couple screws on the plastic belvel on the around the screen, and then 4-6 screws around the frame holding in the screen. If you google your exact model number, there are often youtube videos describing the exact process for your laptop.
