First time posting here but ye have sorted our a few problems for me before without having to register and post so hoping ye can help me diagnose this one.
My advent roma 2000 laptop recently started acting up. At first the screen flickered a little (not on and off, the images/movies stayed on the screen but it looked like the backlight was flickery) and then the next day the battery wouldnt charge while the laptop was on, it will while its off though. So iv been just running it without the battery in it. It happened first just on the laptop but I used a VGA to connect it to an external monitor and it was flickering on that too, but it wasnt happening at home with my hdmi. Until today when my laptops screen went completely white and i had to hold the power button and then later it white screened when i was using my hdmi out to my monitor. Sometimes putting pressure on the right and left of the touchpad makes it flicker more or less.
If ye could point me in the right direction to diagnose before I go buying anything that would be great. Tried to cover whats happened as best as i can, If ye need any info about the laptop just ask.
