Sounds like the screen is going bad. Isolate the problem by plugging an
external monitor to the laptop. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor,
friend, relative or co-worker to plug to the laptop. It can be
any kind of monitor even the
old big fat
crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's
port. If the Borrowed monitor does not show the black lines and snowy
background, that proves your video card is ok and the problem is
your lcd screen. If the borrowed monitor shows the same black lines ans
snowy background it means your video card inside the
computer has the issue.
The video will show
on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems
will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down
the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru
F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have
the icon of a display.
