Default Laptop display question...

Alright, I've come to my lapse of knowledge; My laptop ( a Gateway Solo 5300) has an intermittent display problem that i cannot determine the source of: There's a line at the bottom of the screen, that will occassionally go off, stay off for up to an hr, and then comes back on.

What i've come to kind of realization is that it maybe a video cable; if it is, and i've sort of deducted it is, (because a cable problem would be intermittent, wouldn't it?), is it a semi-possible replacement?

Just as easily, I could take it to a professional shop, but since this is part of my future field, I'd like to do it myself if possible.

currently looking at a litescribe drive at staples, due to its ability to label the CD shortly after being burned.
