Laptop screen screen full of wiggly lines

Hi all,

I have an issue with my three year-old laptop - every time it gets knocked slightly, the whole screen fills with blocky wiggly lines and I have to turn the whole thing off and back on again. I have a video of it but not sure how to post it - is there a way? Anyone know why or whether it can be fixed? It has good days and bad days, some days it doesn't do it at all, other times all you have to do it put a drink on the table and it sets it off!

Thanks in advance.

sounds like a bad connection to the screen from the motherboard

this is usually a ribbon cable but will need either a partial or full strip down to check.

Make and model and we can find the instructions on youtube
