presario notebook screen doubled

My 2 years old Presario notebook (1200 series) started having some problems.  The picture started shaking, the bottom black edge is liftet up, second picture appears on the first one but starting in the middle of the screen, and all this mess with hectic jumping up and down with small black lines over it (like bad reception in TV).
Have no idea what this is about. Does it look like bad video card? What if the card is integrated (whcih I think that is the case in most notebooks, isn't it?). Bad screen? What else?

Other than that it works fine. I can access all the files via (wireless) network, if I am very patient, I can actualy click on some (large) button and even start application. So, the software is fine.

Please, give me an idea what I can do.

Thanks

Restart the computer and check whether this happens at the red Compaq logo. If so, then you are out of luck as this video chip needs a replacement.

Sometimes adjusting the LCD panel helps.

you could try plugging another monitor into it, this would tell you if it was the onboard vga or the display itself.
if it is the display they can be fixed
if it is the graphics you will need a new mobo
