Screen with a weird flickering and coloring on Acer 5715Z laptop

\015 Hey there, I have a problem with an Acer laptop 5715Z. Sometimes my screen flickers, up and down, left to right, with many lines all over the screen from all the sudden. It happened again today, and just a few minutes later, when I restarted it, the screen turned white with little lines and then, when it started Windows XP, the colors where...messed up, I don`t know how to explain.There was no image, just a mixture of colors. And I had the feeling that the colors were becoming more prominent,but very slow. I hope you understand the problem I have, I`m not sure I explained it well. I don`t even know if it`s a hardware problem, but I think it is. By the way, the video card is internal (attatched to the motherboard) and is an Mobile Intel GraphicsMedia Accelerator X3100 (up to 300 and a little more MB). Could you please help me? What do I have to do not to encounter those lines and flickering anymore?\015

Answers :

To determine if he video card is faulty, connect an external monitor to the laptop's external video port, then power up the external monitor and then the laptop. The video info should automaticall switch to the external monitor. If you see anormal Windows image on the monitor then the video card is OK and the fault is with the LCD screen, could be the video cable/connector. Try reseating the video cable/connector to the motherboard.
\015\012If the video card is faulty and because it is part of the motherboard it is extremely dificult to repair, usually a replacement motherboard is required. This may not be a cost effective solution depending the age of the laptop. You could remove the hard drive from this laptop and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB drive.

I have an older Gateway solo and I'm having problems with the display. I was given two of them to put together to make a working one. On one there was a broken screen and on the other one the display flickered (probably a problem with a connection). I took them apart and put the flickering screen on the one with the broken screen. It would try to boot but nothing would show up on the screen and the cd drive wouldn't even work and neither would the keyboard. I then took a different approach and t
