Question Display Problems, any ideas?

Mar 31, 2020
So basically, over the last week or 2, my laptop screen has been glitching out severely. The screen has been turning normal to black, sometimes flashing purple, sometimes with black and green lines flashing. The typical glitching effect. I can still move my mouse, and programs still run, so I know its only the screen is the problem. I do notice that in the hinge that connects the base of the laptop and the screen, one side seems to be popping out more (gap between the screen and hinge is bigger). Any ideas what it might be, and solutions?
Can you connect another external display?

Many times....with something like green lines can be the GPU of the internal graphics.

If you connect another display and still have the same issues....then I'd be looking at the GPU or internal graphics.
