Hello All;

OK, a few weeks ago my son called me while I was working and informed me that he had placed his drink on my desk, and my granddaughter hit it causing it to spill all over my laptop.
I took the system completely apart and cleaned it with alcohol, and allowed it to dry for the weekend, before re-assembly and turning it back on.
Everything is working great, except I have to replace the keyboard, and am just waiting for the slow plane from China to arrive, to get it in.
This question deals with the monitor.
I have dual monitors connected to this laptop and the external monitor is fine, so this is not a graphics card issue, but a monitor issue.

Do I need to replace the entire monitor? (Do not see this as the answer)
Do I just need to replace the LCD screen? (This is what I am hoping)

Attached is a video of the flicking of the monitor.
Please let me know what my next step should be.

Thanks all.
