I need help with repairing my laptop (ASUS UX302L). I just bought it used on ebay, and the screen is flickering. It's like there are horizontal lines appearing on the screen. I attached a picture (it's hard to see though). Sometimes it's as if a shadow of the image on the screen moves up and down. Sometimes the flickering is not there at all, and sometimes it's so bad I can't really work. I noticed that the flickering gets worse when I do things, for example every time I open the browser. I just started running Memtest on it, and the screen is now flickering very wildly, doesn't even stop. The second image shows that - the flower is ducplicated (and the duplicate moves up and down).
I've installed all updates and updated the graphics driver. The flickering was there before I even set up Windows.
I don't know if it was dropped during shipping, but it was well packaged. The ASUS customer service says that the connector between the motherboard and the screen could be damaged. Does anybody have any idea what the problem could be? Can I repair it myself? (It's out of warranty.)
I would really appreciate your help!
