Darken the screen and either move the lid forward or backwards. Laptops have Liquid Crystal Screens and moving the lid backwards or forward will give the screen a different look.
If you need to adjust the brightness of the screen it is controlled by keys on your laptop. Most times to darken the screen you will have to hit the FN, CTRL or ALT key and hold it down while you hit the key that corresponds to the screen darken key. On some computers (even on my laptop) it will be the down arrow key, so i would press FN+the down arrow key. Remember to hold the first key down while you hit the next key. The icon used for most times to denote the brightness or darkness looks like a circular sun or a washer that goes on screws.
There are a number of problems that may cause the screen to have intermitent problems like this.
1) There could be a faulty/loose connection between the screen and the laptops motherboard. The laptop would need to be taken apart and the connectors reset/replaced to see if that remedies the problem.
I suspect this is probably the problem as when you are moving the screen backwards and forwards you are probably remaking the connection
2) There could be a problem with the screen itself and may need replacing.
If you are confident you could repair this yourself, alternatively take it to a local computer repair shop. Shop around a few and get quotes off them before going with the first one you find.
Go in the BIOS and in Advanced Make you CD-drive the first boot device. Put in your Windows CD and reboot. It wil display. Press any key to boot from CD. Press Enter. You wil come to a screen that ask if you whant to repair. Take that Option. Your Boot sector may be faulty.
