I took a short video of the video problems I am having, you can see it here ->

  • I tested the laptop in the BIOS menu, Ubuntu and XP safe mode and the problem was still there
  • Tried different resolutions and colors with no effect on the problem
  • I hooked up an external monitor and the video was fine.
  • Thought the problem might be in the connection to the monitor so I got replacement LCD and the problem is still there.
  • The problem seems to be consistent.

Maybe bad ribbon pins on the graphics card or a faulty GPU? When you replaced the LCD, did you also replace the breakout board?

The only thing I replaced was the LCD itself. It's still using the same inverter as well. – evolvd Jul 23 '10 at 19:36
In my opinion, the motherboard seems fine if external monitors are working. You may want to investigate into the breakout board and may want to buy a new housing for your LCD. Also in my opinion, it would be a good time to purchase a new laptop or have it replaced. – Steven Lu Jul 25 '10 at 18:01
