Default Re: Laptop screen flickers

Alright I just tore it apart and made sure the screen connection was tight. It didn't feel loose to start with but I unplugged it, blew some air in it and stuck it back in.

Put it back together and SO FAR no flickering, but my battery is dead so I can't run it without AC (which is when it does it the most).

Is there anyway to see if the backlight is dying besides the flashlight trick? 99% of the time it is just really fast flickering, so I can't really tell if I can see the desktop through the blackness or not.
