Sony laptop screen goes Dark

I have a Sony laptop VGNFZ160E. The monitor/lcd screen does not turn on when booting up. I can reboot this laptop a few times and it will finally work. The laptop is in other wise great shape. **Im curious if anyone can recommend something to try to fix this issue. And if parts are needed where to order.** I would hope to avoid a costly repair but it seems with laptops its hard to avoid this. I have taken apart Dell laptops so I have some knowledge of how things work in regards to the laptops, I just want to make sure if I buy something (lcd screen) to fix this that it is indeed the problem. I typically dont trust the on the side of the road PC repair shops and dont want to get taken advantage of.

Any advice would be very helpful!

May be the Laptops power supply dying by the sound of it. If you bought it under a year ago you're laptop may still be under warranty where the manufacturer can repair your system for free.

No, this was a referb to being with and its been over a year.

So Power supply huh? Wouldnt have thought of that. I was thinking more LCD screen itself like the connections maybe.

Thanks for the reply. I will take that in to consideration.

If anyone else has any suggestions id appreciate it.
