Windows 7: Laptop Flickering Screen And Huge Issue with Clicking

Laptop Flickering Screen And Huge Issue with Clicking

Had this Sager np2740 laptop and it has had lot of issues. When i first got it, it was great. Battery was good and everything. After having the laptop for a bit, my battery went bad. Had that Red X mark on it. I bought a new battery replacement which was expensive. Had to go to repair shop to install battery on laptop because you had to open laptop in order to put battery in.


After that, battery went bad and had that Red X mark ever since. Then recently my laptop flickers a lot the screen. Like rainbow color. Now theres a black line there. But if i move screen up or down, it goes green or yellow etc. The thing though is i connect my laptop to an external monitor so i dont have this issue with my main screen. Thus it would be impossible to use my laptop by itself because of the blurry lines.


Since I'm out of warranty... this is with xoticpc, what can i do about this case? Go to a repair shop and see what they can do about it? The thing is if i need a replacement part, wouldn't i need to order from sager/xoticpc for this issue? I have had nothing but issues with this laptop once the battery first ran out.

I also had another issue related to this. Earlier when i was trying to click on things on my laptop screen... it kept asking me if i want to delete this program from computer. Example i would left click on a program on my desktop or click on my pictures or documents.


I click no and then i had this message show up over and over again where I cannot X it out. Had to been like that message popping up over and over again. I assume this is related to the screen flickering? Example i would use my mouse and click on programs on my desktop or my documents etc left clicking it like normal. It would then have the popup are you sure you want to delete file and send to recycle bin. Basically i click no but that same message keep popping up over and over again. When i got control alt delete, you see it has like 50 processes that say program isn't responding or something like that. Only way to get rid of this is to restart my laptop or shutdown then start it up again.


And when i do restart laptop or close it and start up, it would have this message with black screen and have option to click Enter where it says Window 7. Like asking which program to start up. Does anyone know what this is?

theres a huge issue also when im typing this. as i type this, it would start deleting everything i written by backspacing it. Does anyone know why it does this? For example it would just randomly backspacing. And the backspace button on my laptop and keyboard is fine. This has to be related to the battery/light flickering or the system. Which one is it?

windows 7


I then press enter then it goes to regular screen. But many times after it... when im typing something like this reply... it would randomly backspace for no reason. The same thing with the mouse when i click on something on desktop it keep wanting to delete it and asking if i want to delete the file.

im also wondering another thing. Is there a chance these issues with my computer could be because i never did any windows updates in a long time? Or some online update of videocard or hardware or something like that? Because a while back i did recall i cancelled all updates and made sure everything is done manually.. at least i think.

Alright. I went to the computer repair shop here. Basically he took a look at it... he pretty much instantly told me i need a LCD replacement screen and thus he cannot help me with this since here in mexico, you cannot get a sager replacement screen. Said if i had the replacement screen, yes he can replace it for me.


I then asked him... well could it be either a loose cable connection or a broken cable connection that needs replacing. He tells me instantly that isn't possible. He said if it was... i would lots of these flickering lines everywhere across the screen. I only have it on one spot. Basically what i have is a long vertical rectangle that goes from the top of screen to bottom... its about 2 inches horizontal and whatever it is from top of screen to bottom. As to where it is at specifically, it on the left side... but imagine you were to cut my computer screen veritically into 5.5 equal parts. This part that has this is part 2. So does this give an idea of how it looks like?


He then tells me when i connect the laptop to an external monitor, is there anything like that on that monitor. I told him no. He said that confirms that this isn't a cable issue or anything like that and its 100 percent lcd replacement screen. What has me a bit confused is i called a xoticpc and a repair shop about this thats not in mexico... they both told me in order to confirm why my monitor is like this, they have to open it up to confirm if its a loose cable, broken cable or LCD replacement.


So based on what i was told at the computer repair shop here, is that pretty much close to 100 percent the LCD Screen? He told me since there wasn't any sager parts he can order here, theres no point for him to open it up. He tells me its 100 percent the LCD screen based on what he sees on laptop screen and the me mentioning external monitor no issues.


Thanks.

This is very similar to how it looks like. Basically scroll to around 1:05 to the end of the video. Basically from 1:30 forward, thats how my laptop screen looks right now since if i don't move it around, its like black vertical rectangle. But if i move it around, you would see shades no purple, neon green etc and flickering. But now its not flickering, its just black vertical rectangle like from near the end of the video...

Here are some pictures. Does this give a clue to what most likely is the culprit? Thus the screen or the cable loose or cable faulty?
