My laptop screen starts to flash like a bulb about to go?
The screen sometimes goes very dark with a ghosting effect when surfing and the page freezes.I can still see the webpage image ghosted in the rear view and the only cure is to re start the laptop. This can happen several times, It then re starts with a hard drive check when rebooting and is ok again for a period varying from minutes to hours?
Is it an overheating problem or more serious, I did have a serious hard drive error some time ago with avast which I have removed
I would be grateful for any suggestions

Either it as a loose connection to the screen or the Inverter is on the way out. I think it's the later
