Ok, trwo things it could be.

1) There could be a loose power cord. Try opening up the case, to the power pcb board. (Above keyboard) Make sure connections are snug.

2) Your backlight is cutting out. When it goes completely black, shine a flashlight at a 45* angle. Can you see the desktop?

Edit: ninja'd

I always buy my screens from here: http://www.laptopscreen.com/
(well, the 2 times I had to do it. Very good service.)
