The other day my hinge broke on my laptop which was bad, but not that bad. At least that is what I thought until my screen started acting weird than flickered like crazy. Eventually screen went black. With some help I managed to get my laptop apart then we noticed there was practically no protection on the screen cable. From opening and closing the lid, the hinge bracket actually cut quite a few of the screen wires. I'm going to order a new cable and try to install this.
I am still going to finish some of my owed work, but I'm very limited at the moment.
