    Sounds like you have a loose wire or something. My friend's laptop does the same thing. He just gives it a good whack and problem solved. >>

    The hard drive would rarely if ever cause the screen to flicker like that. Like the above poster said, it's likely that a wire is loose or the screen's connection to the motherboard is coming off. If you don't feel comfortable enough to open it up and reseat everything yourself, take it to someone who does.

    If it's brand new, take that shit back.
