Yes, I'm willing to shell out for a fix. I can't send mine back to the factory...it's, ah, a bit apparent that I opened it lol. I'm sure it would be hideously expensive to get fixed from the factory (plus I just like screwing around with hardware lol). I did get a camera, a Canon PowerShot A75, which takes much better closeups than my mom's Kodak does, so I will be able to document the procedure. Unfortunately the lens sounds kind of funny and the backlight is a bit screwy and I am sending it in for repair, so I won't have access to it for a couple weeks. I think I'll wait a couple weeks to make sure the inverter really does the fix anyway...everything I've tried so far hasn't worked for more than a day lol. Compman55, if you could give us the basics of the "operation," I'd appreciate it.
Oh, one change I did notice last night...usually when I boot up my laptop, the bottom of the screen glows brighter (I guess from the backlight) against the black Windows boot screen. Last night, it wasn't there, but the lights were on the right and left sides. Kind of strange...
Other than this silly flicker problem, I've had absolutely no problems with my laptop. I just love it to death. It's great having a powerhouse that I can carry anywhere. The screen is soooo beautiful (especially at max brightness...lol).
