My laptop screen flickers really badly. At first I thought it was the wifi, then I ran a virus scan. no luck. I SPENT Money and got a new screen. Now, I'm here at BC. HELP!

If you have access to an external monitor use it to see if the problem persists.

 

Depending on the laptop you may have to switch between the laptop display and the monitor.  If you provide me with the make and model of this laptop I can find this information for you.

With the L675 series the laptop should switch between the two automatically.

 

If this proves not to be the case you will need to provide me with the complete model.  The L675 has a dash and S7 followed by three more numbers.  Example L675-S7018.

I don't have access to an external screen. My computer repair man does but I'm trying to avoid him this time around.

Do you have a friend who would be willing to help out here?

 

By using an external monitor we can determine if the problem is with the laptop display, or with the graphics card.

Well, I need to go visit my techie next week and let him use his monitor. For right now, I was able to go in and set Windows 7 to do what would contribute to "best performance." My refresh rate isn't able to go above 60hz which is a manufacturing fiasco! In the meantime, if you have any better suggestions I'd be glad to hear them.

If you live in the United States your either 110 Volts or 220 Volts at 60 Hrz (Cycles).  This is what all of the electrical devices are designed to operate on.  You can change this.

 

Surely you have a friend or coworker who can let you use their monitor for a five minutes check.  This would not affect the monitor.  I suspect that this "tech" will want you to hire them to repair this computer.  But with an external monitor you would be able to at least determine where the problem is originating from, and we may be able to walk you through the repair.
