    Couple weeks ago, the lcd screen on my laptop (Toshiba Satellite M40X) started flickering, put usually a tap on the screen would stop it... but now the flickering won't stop, and sometimes the screen freezes in a flickering position and so all in all, it's useless right now...

    Is there any way to fix this problem??? I really don't have any money to spend,
    i have taken apart my laptop before so i think i can take apart the lcd if there is any way to replace it...

    Thanks for the help!

If that would help, on this diagram, do i reseat the cable pointed with the red arrow on the top in the middle... I dunno what the 2 skinny cables that go into the screen on the left
