Here is what happens:
If my laptop screen is bumped in the wrong way the screen goes dark. It doesn't turn off, just loses is luminosity. Well, most of it. There is still enough to make out large basic shapes. Sort of like what happens when it tries to conserve battery.
I can fix this one of three ways:
1. Turn off the computer, shut everything up, and wait 24 hours
2. Grab the black edge of the screen with the base of my palm and push while my fingers curl around to the back of the screen and push the opposite direction. This connects something or other (I don't know what)
3. Move the screen back and forth and up and down until something happens or I give up.
This has been happening more and more frequently and I was wondering if there is anything I can easily do to fix it.
Also, occasionally instead of going dark it flickers between the two states and emits a high-pitched sound like a kettle putting off steam. I don't get it, and would usually get a new screen but its not worth it on this piece of junk.
Is there a quick fix?
