    I have a Sager and my screen broke. I ordered a new one from laptopscreen.com and it worked fine for a few days, and then it randomly did this. I don't know what's going on?

    Have you tried reseating the cable?

    Well I shut it down, then turned it back on and it was fine. Hasn't come back since. I pressed around where the cable was thinking the same thing, but as I applied some pressure around the area the screen did not flicker or show any signs of a questionable connection. Is this normal for a new screen or should I reach out to the seller and try to get a replacement already? Thanks.

    How did you determine the original screen broke - it stopped showing a picture?

    (Where I'm going with this is that it's important to determine the graphics card isn't at fault. You might want to run some 3D benchmarks on an external screen to make sure the graphics card is operating as expected.)

    Not the video card, it was fine the week without a monitor hooked up to an external. Original screen was dropped and cracked.

    The issue has not come back and it's been on at least 8 hours since then (not consecutive hours of course). Should be OK? I really don't know how to troubleshoot these things

    It's hard to troubleshoot unless you can reproduce it, true.

    Maybe check the Windows Event Viewer around the time of the problem to see if any software-related items were logged.
