HP Pavillion Laptop Display Problem

I am having a HP Pavillion dv5z laptop and it is having a display problem for quite some time now. OS for this laptop is Windows Vista. The laptop screen is going black intermittently and sometimes it is flickering. When the display is black the windows could be seen faintly in the background and the display is coming OK in an external monitor. The laptop is not in warranty any more. I gave it to a local computer shop for repair. First they replaced both the inverter and the screen. It was fine for around 4 hours. But then again the problem came back. The screen started going black again and after some time it stayed black most of the time. Though I could see the display faintly in the background. I went back to the shop and they did some work on the cables. But again the same issue. It started going black and after some time it stayed black most of the time. But it is not going black while in Safe Mode. I used Recovery Manager and reset the computer to the factory settings, but getting the same issue. Last night I repartitioned the hard drive and installed Linux. But after sometime got the same problem in Linux as well. It leaves me clueless. Since the problem is not coming in Safe Mode, so I am guessing this is not related to hardware. Can anyone please help?
