Help me please, I've got an Evesham laptop running XP and just as the battery appeared to run out the screen shut down. Now intermitently I can see the display and even get as fair as logging in completely and then the damn thing goes blank again! I'm hoping the display hasn't died as I've had the PC for 3 years and that its doing some bizzare hibernation think due to the battery? Any ideas!?

There are several ways a lappie screen can malfunction.
If the light goes out but you can see the screen but dimly- this is an indication of a. backlight tubes blown or the inverter blown or a simple connection
loosening.
If it is totally blank, but comes on intermittantly then is this a light and or data connection prolblem

Are you upto taking it to bits?
No! then into the repair shop it goes.
