Sounds as if the video card is going down. This is a common problem on these laptops. Have you checked Device Manager to see if the drivers are installed. Hit Win key and pause then select hardware and Device Manager. If nothing seems out of place there then I would most certainly suspect the video card. This is part of the motherboard and not replaceable.
As another check try connecting the laptop to an external monitor via the VGA connector at the back. The resolution problem should be resolved then.
