Bad. Do not follow this guide. The top half of the lid that has the word sony needs to be pried off the case first, it slides off. Then you remove the six or so screws from the screen, then follow the rest of these instructions, otherwise you end up with broken screw holes.

I found the problem with my laptop Screen flicker but it is not the screen or GPU or driver there is a loose or broken connection in the screen cable that could the flickering. It cost me a new screen and had the same issue if you fiddle with the screen cable you will see when you touch or move the cable the screen starts to flicker.
