    My wife's laptop screen started to act weird a while ago. I hope I can explain it, but anyway, if that's not enough I will make a video of it.

    Sometimes, the picture gets messed up, and you have to open/close the lid a little bit until finding a spot in which the picture is clear as it should.

    How do I fix that? The laptop is an ASUS X202E, and works fine other than that.

    Thanks!

    There are lots of parts for that laptop on ebay. If she doesn't use the touchscreen, try disabling the USB connection to it. Unfortunately, Windows turns it back on. BTW, one of the two that we have has the same issue.

    Definitely sounds like a cable issue. Have fun replacing that. I always have a great time trying to get the wires threaded through the hinges of laptops.
