Can anyone help me out here? It's not flickering... but the screen literally appears to turn off, then comes back on again a second or two later. It happened twice in a row about a week ago (and then stopped, so I figured I'd let it go), but it just happened again right now, so I'm figuring there's got to be something else going on. My only guess would be the battery... but I just had that replaced a few months ago, so it seems kind of odd to be having problems already. If it is the battery, how severe of a problem would this be? Is there something I could do to fix it, or can I just live with it until the end of the school year... or do I need to have this fixed ASAP? (And on the off chance that this is a related problem, my speakers have been making that funny crackling/static sound when I wake the computer up from sleep... I was reading some threads about that around here, but to the best of my knowledge the problem was never really resolved.) Neither problem is quite big enough to annoy me terribly... but I'd just like to make sure I'm not ignorantly heading toward any big disasters in the near future. Thanks in advance.
