Stephen Alexander, "for a second and then goes dark. I can move it and it will flash but not stay on" sounds like a bad display flex cable. I would start by replacing this first. Of course, while you are working on your computer, make sure all the connectors are properly seated. Use these guides to work on your computer. Hope this helps, good luck.
