Having problems with your EliteGroup A530 Notebook ?

IBM Think Pad T42

\015 Dear all,\015\012\015\012The problem with my laptop has started just 20 days back, it is like this:\015\012\015\012Even a small movement of the laptop while working, makes it hand, and the display of the screen will get blurred and thereby goes blank. You need to switch it off directly from the power button as everything else is hanged. Switching on again will result in blank screen, but system will be show as working. The solution I got by chance was of pressing the keyboard while the laptop is off and then switch it on, by doing this it is getting bootted in the normal manner. Can anybody suggest, what exactly is the problem and how the same can be rectified?\015
