Laptop display going out.
The case is cracking where it hooks to the laptop base but I don't think that is causing any issue.
The laptop has to usually be restarted several times to get the screen running right. If not, it will start with a bunch of lines going down and it and a color gradient only on the display.
Now, how many restarts is needed varies - sometimes, NONE, sometimes 50. Just have to flip it off and on until it starts up correctly.
What's the problem? Video card? Display? How to fix?
