Given that its likely a hardware issue, 8 won't be any better than 7. I personally wouldn't pay a tech to repair a 4 yr old lappy, but I might read up and consider replacing it myself. If it is the inverter, they are somewhat
universal (you can buy the appropriate generic unit), but you have to be willing to pry your laptop apart.
You could always hook up a remote monitor to it on your desktop, but that's not a portable solution.
