Hi, I saw this on another Forum - with a bit of luck it might work for you too ...

"I had the same problem and solved it as follows. Since there is an intelock that turns the monitor off when the laptop lid is down, or almost down, I guessed that perhaps that interlock, which must be somewhere in the lid's hinge, may be dirty. All I did was rapidly move the monitor back and forth. I moved it about 10-12", quickly, maybe 25 times. To my surprise, that did the trick! That was a month ago and the flicker hasn't returned."

Due to the problems in the inverter or due to the troubles in the cable connection usually screen flickering happens in the display of Laptop. As the inverters are responsible to supply power to the back-lit of the screen, any problem in the inverter would create troubles. By replacing your inverter and by checking the connections of the cable in your laptop, this problem could be easily resolved.
