Test to ensure the device is receiving power
Another method, if the screen is black and shows no sign of cracking check the screen by connecting it to an external monitor via a D-sub to socket from the laptop to know if the flickering happens in the external screen as well, this will let you know if it is a bad screen or an issue with the graphics adapter.
Screen can become cracked when exposed to excessive physical force of any sort. Or by a high amount of pressure against the screen or top of the computer when closed. Cracked screens have no simple software fix and simply need to be replaced.
Cold weather can be damaging to the computer system, and exposure to low temperatures can result in distorted images. Remove the computer from the cold room or affected area. Returning it to a room temperature area (72 degrees Fahrenheit or 23 degrees Celsius)
