the lid on my son's eee pc blacks out when it gets almost full open. I pulled the screen protector off and didn't see any issue with the screen wire connections. Will a new screen fix this or does anyone know of something I'm not aware of since I don't know crap about how this is supposed to work.

It's almost certainly the connection at one end or the other or it cold be the ribbon cable itself which is very fragile. The clue is in the fact that it's at full stretch when it starts to fail. It's not an easy fix and given the cost of a second hand eeePC (the one I'm writing this on cost me £80 British) it would be easier and a lot cheaper simply not to open the lid as far as is necessary to make it dim and shudder.
