When a fault is seen in BIOS it is almost certain to be a hardware issue, rather than anything to do with Windows or drivers.

There is a cable that connects between the computer motherboard and the screen. Sometimes this fails due to opening and closing the laptop, so see if it changes when you slowly raise or lower the lid. Another possibility is that a connecter has worked loose at either end. The screen itself could be faulty but check the connections first.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Sounds like either a problem with the drivers or the video adapter. Make sure you have the latest drivers installed.

Okay - if possible check the plug in connectors each end are pushed in tight before shelling out cash. If the fault happens to come and go when you move the lid then you are definitely in the right area, otherwise it's a best guess.
