My laptop LCD screen started to have vertical lines all the way across the screen. It was like every other lines was gone so there was a picture, it was just degreaded. That lasted off and on a few days then stopped. The last night the screen went blank with only a light along the bottom of the screen, a back light I guess. I can adjust the screen brightness on the keyboard and I can see the light along the bottom edge brighten and dim but no picture.

My monitor just flickers off, glitches on for a split second, then glitches off. I know its not the settings on the computer because I have another computer that works fine, but when I plug this monitor to it it continues its annoying flicker.
