This annoys the shit out of me.

If I hit the back of the LCD it will stop sometimes, but how do I fix it for good?

sounds like a hardware problem. maybe a short or a loose connection or something.

The warranty is up and so really I'd be looking at fixing it myself, I just don't know what to look for?

are you confident enough to fix it?
find and download a service manual, open the laptop, and check for any loose connections

You might end up doing more damage than good by trying to fix it yourself. Personally, I would just go take it into a shop and ask them for their opinion. Might be cheap, or might just be better to replace the laptop/monitor.

for most laptops, it's not difficult to at least get access to the part where the monitor cable attaches to the motherboard.

if you can't find a service manual, you can probably just remove all the screws from the bottom of the case and carefully take the thing apart. if everything is connected properly, it's probably a hardware issue.

shot in the dark, but....

is it an HP?

they have a recall on some of their laptop models.

my sister bought a laptop in 2006, 1 year warranty expired in 2007, but i called in last week and they said it was one of the laptops that had a recall on some hardware, so the warranty was extended.
