Hmmm, do you go through private files or snoop around. I've heard best buy workers do that. >8[

This one guy had 5gbs of pictures, all asian prostitutes and when it was time to pay he made me navigate through his computer and "teach" him how to access his files after a reformat... if youre worried about people looking through your stuff you should backup and delete the files. Its like leaving your door wide open after you leave your house.

hmmm...but the fixes I need are only hardware. Theres no need to go onto my personal files is there? (More than 656 gbs worth of work)
Also, when I lean my screen in a certain position; it doesn't flicker at all. But when I lean close to the screen, I can hear a small buzzing noise. Normal or just my laptop going to hell.

Go on ebay to buy the keyboard, and then buy the inverter board from ebay as well. They have everything there

im almost 100% that the issue is with the screen not the inverter. you should get that check before you decide to do anything to it

inverter has nothing to do with the screen flickering or it shouldnt make any noises unless it was a wrong inverter. it sounds more like the backlight of the screen is acting up.

Sorry for making this more complicated but to break it down its either LCD cable inverter or screen. But im leaning more towards it being the LCD cable or the screen.

Could it be because the cable is loose or something? It makes sense because It doesn't flicker at all when poistioned right. When moved, it flickers untill I position it the same way again.

yea that sounds possible too. LCD cables are around 20 bucks brand new, you should go to a repair shop and see if they got on for cheap. Most of the time you can connect LCD screens even if the size is bigger so you can also try to find a working LCD to test it first.
