Hi, just today my laptop screen has been flickering exactly like the video in this tweet - https://twitter.com/ItsHydrone/status/677315409633107968 I have tried many different things such as - changing refresh rate, changing resolution, restarting computer, removing battery, pushing in on certain parts of the screen to see if there was a loose cord ect. Please help me, thanks in advanced.
 
Hi,

It could either be a problem with the Graphics card or the display itself.
- Do connect an external monitor and see if the same problem will persist. If the flickering will still happen on the external monitor that means it's the graphics card that has the problem.
- Do reseat the ribbon cable of the LCD if the flickering is not happening on the external monitor since it's a problem with the built in display.
- If reseating the ribbon cable will not work you'll need to replace the display itself.

When I plugged it into an external monitor it did not flicker. Please tell me what the ribbon cable is and how to access it, thanks
