QuestionBSOD on notebook lid movement (WTF) Pin

When I try to tilt the angle of view on my notebook, it throws fit and lands on a BSOD, consistently.
I was unsure how this was happening. Just to observe the behaviour, I left my notebook intact on my desk without moving a bit for 2 weeks. There was no problem.

When I lifted the notebook, the slight movement on the lid, threw the notebook to crash, immediately.
I thought maybe the pressure at the bottom of the notebook(when I left) is crushing the circuitry or an HDD controller cable, something like that. But it's not.

It's confirmed with the final experiment: On the desk, without lifting the notebook, just pushed the lid back a bit. It lands right into this screen.

And far worse - If I pushed it further, the whole screen became a dump of noisy horizontal lines flickering like an ECG gone wild.

It's a PITA to think about giving the machine to the service centre..taking backups etc. D'Oh! | :doh:

Any clue?
