Hey there,

I was just wondering if anyone can figure out whats wrong with my computer. My LCD sometimes shimmers, if its not shimmering, it doesn't display colours properly. I "may" have dropped it recently but it was working 100% fine after the drop (it was in a neoprene laptop sleeve [which absorbs a lot of shock] which was inside a bag). VGA-out works fine. The LCD hasn't moved around inside its casing either.

Now when this happened, my laptop was rather hot (related?). Its out of warranty and well yeah, i've talked to the company and it'll cost me $600 to fix. Would it more likely be a cabling problem or an actual screen problem or something else?

Any help appreciated. :)

Although.. i'm also trying to get it done for free since i've had my mobo, wlan card and sound card replaced in it which its kinda problem after problem and this laptops been "kinda" destined to fail. In saying that, every time i've called up their service center they've been "too busy" to help me and they keep saying they'll call back but they dont <_< (3 times now)

Good Luck... normally the only chance you will have to get a "free" repair is if the fault is exactly the same as it was before.

E.G: Laptop goes in for faulty ethernet port, is repaired. 2 weeks later, the hard drive packs a sad. Little chance that you will get it repaired for free, as the new fault is not the same as the old one.

May I ask what brand, where you purchased it from, where you took it to get repaired?

I "may" have dropped it recently but it was working 100% fine after the drop...

Well, either you did or you didn't drop it. Which is it? Yes it may have been working fine after the drop, but you don't know what damage that drop has done the machine long term, damage which may take some time to show up.

Cheers
