my Compaq Presario R3000 screen has been flickering a little bit over the past few months and I have been able to stop it by taping on the grey rubber thingy that tells the laptop when the screen is open. (that, i believe it the technical term . )
This morning....it stopped all to gether. I can see the faint image when held in the correct light. It's like a globe has blown or somthing.
