Title:

Why is my screen flickering and backlight completely shutting off?

Text:

This happens periodically, I'm sure it has something to do with the display cables.

Does anyone have an idea of how long or where I could find the cables to replace and which ones will actually fix this?

I've tried doing a display update, which fixed it for about a day.

It doesn't happen all the time, but when it does it is very annoying.
