sometimes it works fine but mostly it blinks on and off and occasssionaly works. You cannot see the screen and it is unstable. Any ideas of how to fix it or do I have to buy a new one? if I do will the one on hot deals be any good for £69? I have an HP pav 1523 at the moment.
Ta, appreciate any replies.

When ever I switch my HP on, the screen turns of for 2 seconds a little bit after start up, is this what you mean? either way I'm not sure how to fix it.

it sounds like its getting old and the capacitors inside have started to dry out. so id say its on its way out. maybe a friend into electronics could sort it out but it wouldn't really be worth paying to get someone to look

check the vga or dvi cable is in right or the live wire in the plug is in right.
