you can test if it does the same with an external screen
you can replace the card also to check if that is the cause
look also in the bios settigns - or try defaults

Most laptops have a toggle switch to change between lcd and external screen , usually you have to press an FN key and then a differnt key to toggle to external monitor.

When I see this problem in LCD TV/Monitors its usually a Electrolytic Capacitor , and in some cases the LCD screen its self.

Like nobus said if you can get it to sync up with an external display we can rule out motherboard video problem.

then you have to replace the Video card, or turn the laptop in for repair..

But, since stranger things have happened, try to reset it first :
-remove battery and AC adapter
-hold power button for 20 sec
-reconnect and test
