    Laptop screen issue...

    One of my laptops that I just got have a problem. A problem that is confusing me. About 1/3rd of the screen will remain white/blank, but sometimes faze in and out of what is supposed to go there and then go back to blank. But one time that I turned on the computer, the screen worked fine. And looked gorgeous. I looked over the mainboard of the laptop, fidn't find anything noticably wrong, what could this be? A wire? Screen? Internal Hardware? Or is this thing just a paper weight now?

    ribbon cable or connections to/from the ribbon cable for the lcd....

    if the laptop has a lot of milage on it the ribbon cable is fragile & excessive opening & closing can actually damage the ribbon... check & reinsert connections both ends... if not a ribbon cable off ebay if avail may solve the problem, if not just chuck it out the nearest window

    I should be able to see visible damage to the cable right? So I could unsleeve it and inspect it thouroghly (sp)? Cause i've unpluged it and everything. When I unplug it, instead of half the screen being white, the entire screen goes white. I know the screen is fine because It just worked an hour ago. When I got the top, it came to me with this problem. But then out of the blue, as I had the top torn apart to fix the charging issue, the screen worked fine. Now its back to its old tricks.

    sometimes you can see the damage, but I've seen some that look fine, but don't work fine... I guess you may actually be able to ohm out the traces.... but if the connections are good it's likely a bad ribbon...

    what about signal interfearance? Half of my cable is steel braided which comes out to a ground wire thats supposed to ground the cable to the casing of the screen, and there are two hard round things around this cable... Does this stuff matter? or can I chop them all off?
