    def a loose connection somewhere... where is harder to say without looking at it, check & wiggle all your connections & See if you can find the culprit... if all connections are good then it is possible theres a bad connection inside the unit too, but it's definitely a bad connection somewhere

    the bad connection could be anywhere, including the laptop, if you had the same thing with prior screen then it's probably not the screen...
