Answers :

To determine if the LCD screen is faulty ot the video card, connect an external monitor to the laptop's video port. Power up the external monitor first and the boot up the laptop. The video image should automatically switch to the external monitor. If you don't get flashes on the monitor then the video card is OK and the fault lies with the LCD screen.\015\012Flashes coud be caused by a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.\015\012A fault is usually easier to diagnose when it is not intermitten.
