So my screen went on the blink; more like the scramble. It was very upsetting, and it carried on like this for a few weeks. I used an external monitor and sometimes the regular screen would work. It was very unpredictable and would break without any cause, which frustrated the hell out of me.
Eventually while sitting in a friend's loungue I decided I really just had to see my screen. So I grappled with her rather useless screwdrivers and took out the retaining screws for the keyboard. After this was done I flipped the keyboard open, gave the internal screen connector a poke and turned it on.
And it worked. Just like that. And it's been working ever since.
