    are you talking about a power bar? Were you having problems with the old one? Are you able to boot into Safe Mode (as computer is starting boot up keep tapping f8 key and select Safe Mode when the options window opens)?

    By the sounds of it, the graphics card is shot or the screen is kaput. Wait for others input on this. How old is it?

    I would also go for the broken screen. Is there any apparent bruise/scratch on the screen or on the bottom of it?

    I dont think its the video card. i have it hooked up to my tv and convert videos just fine. If it was the lcd why would it bink off and on when it restarts?

    sounds like you have a faulty backlight on your monitor. it may just be the connection wire has fractured giving you intermittent connection, hence the flickering, but either way its a crappy thing to replace. does moving the screen make any diference to it? any further flickering?

    other than hooking up a seperate external monitor, you will be needing a replacement. you could try the ribbon first, as the flicker may suggest the lamp is fine, but you may end up replacing both, if its even possible.

    You need to replace the LCD Inverter. You can fit it yourself if you are confident enough. The part and instructions on how to fit it are available on the net. I found this one on Ebay.
