    Could use some Help here

    I got a friend, we have identical MacBooks, and his is flickering.

    MacBook Black 2.0GHz (Late 2006) not in warranty since he got in Nov 2006

    Now the screen only flickers when it is in transition to to dim (like when ur using it and doing things to the screen it is normal, wont ever notice anything) as soon as u leave the laptop unintended, and watch the screen and as soon as it dims 1 step from where it was, it starts flickering and eventually it stops when the screen goes black.

    What do you guys think might be the problem

    The screen inverter has gone up the swanny i'm afraid.
    If you dont mind taking laptops apart then its about 3 hours work to fix and will cost around £20ish for a new inverter (eBay)

    Other than that it'll be an expensive repair at an authorised repair centre
