What is causing my Sony Vaio Laptop monitor to flicker and then go out?

Is it a loose connection somewhere? How can I fix it? Will it be expensive?

Update:

It is connected properly at all junctions. I am not using the battery.

Update 2:

There is an overhead flourescent light. Will need to try computer in a different room to verify if this is a problem.

    There are a couple things that can make a laptop screen flicker.

    Are you operating near fluorescent lights or a power box such as a breaker box? Magnetic fluxes can affect the screen.

    Other than that, you may have a loose connection, or a bad wire/video card.

    That would cost a pretty penny.

    Also, do make sure it's nothing simple like the computer having power (is it plugged in to the wall, or is the battery dying?).

    just hope its under warranty and if it is you should take it to the service center and get it repaired...
