    My Sony Laptop which is about 5 years old, was acting strange recently. For a while the monitor would blink black repeatdley for about a minute, and then last night, the whole screen just went black permantley. Now to use my computer I need to shine a flashlight next to the monitor to see what I'm doing. Can anyone tell me whats wrong?

    Sounds like the backlight or power invertor has gone on you. It can be pricey to fix.
