    On my fourth MSI gaming laptop and never had this problem before, but the screen all of a sudden stopped working on me. It turns into static, but the computer still works and the 3 monitors I have plugged in also function properly so I can only assume its not the gfx card but the screen itself

    Anyone else ever get this issue?

    Whats the best way to fix this post warranty?

    Thank you

    Have you checked that HDMI shows a normal screen as that could be either a GPU issue or a screen issue. Connect external screen to check if it's GPU.

    In the OP he mentions that he has 3 external monitors and it works properly. I do think the issue is with either the screen or perhaps the connector?

    If the external screens are working fine then it's more then likely the cable. OP could check if it's come loose as the cable is easy to unplug both ends without complete tear down.

    Yes, other 3 monitors are working fine

    Thank you. This laptop has pretty much been stationary for the last year or so, so not sure how it would come loose but I don't mind trying to find out. Is there a good guide on how to check the cable so I don't cause some horrible damage to my laptop :D

    Thank you guys for the responses

    Simply remove the Hinge cover using a pry tool, Be genital, then the LVDS cable is there.



    So you do everything from 0:00 to 0:35 then continue at 4:00 to 4:10

    My god the LVDS cable is in an easy spot to get hold of.

    No problem. Let us now how it went. At least its not like the GT72 series where to replace the cable would mean complete disassembly of the laptop in full.

    I see that they don't have stock for the 4k panel here: https://www.laptopscreen.com/English/model/MSI/GT73VR 7RE TITAN/

    It seems like the most reliable place to buy it....

    However I dont really use 4k at all anyway and my priority is to have a working laptop more than a 4k screen. Is it possible to buy a 1080p panel 40 pin socket and use that?

    Just cracked open and the cable seems snug, so I guess it has to be the panel? :(

    This is a video of whats going on with the panel. All my other monitors are working fine and computer is functioning normally other than this
