    I'll post an image here, but basically I'm having intermittent display issues.

    Clevo P650SG/Sager NP8652, i7-4720HQ, GTX 980M, IPS display

    Sometimes, caused by moving the lid or by seemingly random causes, the display will flicker or "stick" on a colors+lines image. The image it gets stuck on is based on what is on the display at the time. And it is always resolved by closing the lid and re-opening it.

    I don't have any external monitor.

    Is there a different way to determine whether this issue could be resolved by installing a new display? Or if it is a graphics card error? Running latest nvidia driver.

    looks like you need to open your notebook and put the cable properly in again.

    Use some kapton tape to ensure it stays in if there is none there or to replace the old tape.

    It looks like a loose cable issue and you will need to open your laptop to fix that. Check YouTube, there should be a video telling you how to do.
