Hello I have been having some trouble of late with my laptops display

The computer itself works fine but lately the screen has been broken and has gotten to point it is unusable. What happens is the screen either jumps/scrolls (so like the whole image moves out the bottem of the screen and reappears instantly at top) or it just freezes. If I turn off the laptop and reboot the screen doesn;t fix as the already 90% black start up screen is now completely black save for a few pixelly white lines. Now I do not think the actual display is broken, cause for a while if I moved the screen back and forth and put pressure or jiggles the hinge thing the cables go through the image would fix and it would display perfectly, cause it did this I don't think its the screen that is broken but the connection cables.

As i said it has gotten to the point that now the screen doesn;t display right unless a extreme amount of effort and fiddling is unvolved and even then if the screen is bumped a little it goes back to stuffing up

So my questions are: Am i right to assume it is an issue with the connection cables
and if so any adfvice to fix, as my budget for this is quite low

Thanks in advance for anyone who can help me ^_^

I'm responding mostly because (at least for me) the HWA search capability has not been working for perhaps a week...so I'll assume you haven't been able to search within HWA for problems and threads similar to yours...of which there have been a few.

If you haven't done so, check the output with an external display. Make sure the display resolution settings are the same when comparing. If everything looks OK on that display while the symptoms remain on your notebook's integrated screen then at least you know the base video generating subsystem (controller/RAM/etc) is OK.

IF that's the case, AND...given what you've described so far then the integrated screen's connectivity would certainly be a primary suspect.

So it very much depends on what you find with the external display.

Mhm I just did that on both my homes desktop monitor and my TV and the image displayed fine. So yeah must be the connection or something. Is there a way to manually repair all this like research I have checked might suggest its the inverter cables. Cause like i said when the screen worked a few times it displayed just fine. Thanks for the help btw and I know should have checked first
