    Some custom options in your power management section of control panel might be set to the wrong options. Check in control panel under "Power Options". Its pretty obvious what needs to be done once you get there if this is the problem. Give it a go.

    ok checked up on the problem and yeah if its not the custom options then its most likely your inverter thats gone especially since it occurs when u take the power cord out. They don't cost much to replace. Best option is taking it to a techie and asking them to check the LCD connectors as well just in case, might be them.
