Armada 1592DMT Display Problem

Threaded View
I have an old Compaq Armada 1592DMT and the display will completely
white out if
you move the screen or bump the computer. If an external
monitor is hooked up
and both displays are running the laptop display
will white out but the external
monitor will work just fine.  Anybody
have any ideas what my problem might be.

There's a flex connector that connects the LCD to the motherboard where
the right hinge of the LCD connects to the base. SQUEEZE the LCD at that
joint - video come back ? First check to see if the hinge screws are
tight or if the plastic is a bit cracked - allowing it to flex (in which
case there's nothing you can do). Or the plug/connection has either come
a bit loose internally (rare) , or is cracked and needs to be replaced.
It happened on a lot of laptops as they got worn.
