When I power up my laptop, the screen seems fine for about 2 seconds, then it appears the like the backlight goes out (if it has a backlight). When I get the computer all powered up and into windows, it takes me a few mins to find the mouse and all that to get the computer in to hybernate mode, and when it comes out of that mode. It seems to power-up the screen in a wave across the screen, and then it goes dark again. I can see the screen but just bairly...

Do I have to replace the whole screen?
Does anyone else have any ideas that wont cost me 200$ lol

you may need to replace the backlight but my first guess is the invertor board needs to be replaced... if you can do it yourself you might get away with around $100 maybe...
