Answers :

I have the same problem with my IQ770 and from what I have read on-line it apears that the inverter for the monitor is bad. The problem I am having is figuring out how to successfully pull apart the unit to get to the inverter, which is located behind the touchscreen/monitor.
Touchscreens are EXPENSIVE and difficult to replace. It's not even just soldering. I'd look up any warranties you have on the laptop and see if you can get it fixed for free. But first - try a few things. I know that for some people this may sound like baby talk, but it is the proper procedure to go through.
1. Make sure that the wiring is firmly and correctly plugged in. Your cat may have knocked the graphics port loose by traveling behind the PC.
2. Check and see if you can get another monitor to work on it. Most modern LCD/LED/Plasma televisions have a port you can use.

If that doesn't work, your monitor is actually fine, and you'll probably need a new graphics card. Again, check all warranties, consult your manual, and see if your computer/monitor manufacturer will fix it free of charge under the warranty.
