Hello, right now I have an ASUS u50a (well thats what dxdiag says). I got it online as refurbished and it worked well for a while but recently the screen has been acting acting up. It started with the picture only looking correct at around a 90 degree tilt but moving it would completely mess up the picture and make it a random mess of garbled lines and colors. I thought that it was probably a lose connection or bad cable so I popped off the screen bezel and bottom plate and re-seated all the connections. Didn't seem to have any effect. However, when I would move the only cord going to the screen near the hinge, it would affect the image so I found a good spot and taped it to the inverter board with electrical tape and put everything back together. It was pretty good and the image only distorted when moving it rather quickly but I was pretty sure it would not stay this way so I opened it back up to try and find the real root of the problem. I then took the anti-static wrapping off of the inverter board and the start of the main cable from the motherboard so I could see everything. All of the little wires seem to be in place but now the backlight will not come on. I thought I would just replace the inverter board but I cant seem to find one and have no way of testing if it is the backlight, inverter or cable. I think I hear a faint buzzing noise. Any ideas on how to fix this?
