My first post here so I apologize in advance if I posted it to the wrong area.

 

My Gf's laptop screen decided the other day to stop working. I booted it up and logged into my profile then the screen blanked out and i get what you see below or some variation of it.



I hooked it up via HDMI to my PC screen (my tv) and it works fine there. No issues at all. I updated the BIOS and updated any drivers I could. I tried several things over a 7 hour period and just can't find anything that works. I've started the process of taking it apart to see if anything is loose inside but I wanted to get other opinion on what it could possibly be. Laptop is only about 2 years old. It wasn't dropped or damaged in any way. Below is a link for the laptop.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Oh, and once in a blue moon, the screen would actually work for like 30 seconds the other day. I would say it popped on like 3 times in that 7 hour period.

It could be the cable to the screen loose/failed or a failed LCD. 30/70% chance. There's 2 ways to find out... fix it yourself or get someone else to do it. Considering how easy it is personally I'd do it myself.

 

Here's a video to help

That is very similar to my laptop. I took the screen off and did not notice anything off. However, when messing with the cable, the screen did flicker a bit so I kinda lean towards that. I guess I will try to find a replacement cord and try that first since I know that is cheaper than a new screen. Now I just have to find the right cord.

 

EDIT: Any help here would be mucho appreciated too. So far, I'm just finding entire laptops and not just the cord.
