Default Pavilion dx6520us screen problem


My laptop screen (Windows Vista) keeps on darkening, and flickering at random, sometimes for a long time. Sometimes it restores itself and continues working fine. Any advice? I read somewhere in the forum that it could be the inverter or the CCFL lamps.

I am not sure but I do not think the lamp is bad since it works sometimes with the brightness that should be.

Can you guys help on advise to where to get an inverter for this model??

Sounds like a loose power cable or data cable for the monitor.
