I have a Compaq Laptop that came to me with a Compaq x1050, that when you press down on the top left of the keyboard, the display cuts out. I have look in the machine, and made sure that the cables are all tight, and took the board out of the case and inspected all the chips to make sure nothing came loose. i cannot seem to find the problem. Do you think there could be something I am missing? The LCD goes out, but it does not freeze the machine. I know the LCD works fine, as it does stay on when in use without cutting out, but when you hit the top left part of the keyboard, the screen goes black.
I am not able to tell if the screen is displaying a pic because the way the screen is made, it is supposed to be anti-glare. This one is just puzzling me. Anyone have any ideas?
Note: if you bang the side of the case, it comes back, sometimes.... But it requires a healthy bang to get it to come back. It doesn't go out if you leave it like that, and not touch the keyboard.
