Hi!

Follow these methods, each one at a time, to try fixing your problem:

A)\015\012 Unplug the power cord from the ;aptop and remove the battery as well. Press the power button (yes, without any electricity source connected!) several times;\015\012 Reconnect the cable (only) and power-up normally. If it powers up and all seem to work, let it fully load, shutdown and try again WITH the battery connected.

B) Try connecting an external monitor and see if \015\012the problem persists. You may need to press a hotkey (usually Fn key + F5 key) in order to "tell" the laptop to work with the external monitor. If it works, you should replace your desktop monitor with a new one. If not - proceed to the next step.

C)\015\012 Remove, clean and restore the memory (RAM) module(s). You'll need to unscrew some screws in the back of your laptop to reach the modules themselves. Try using different slots for the memory module(s), if there are \015\012any. Try using different modules, if possible - as a matter of checking if your existing modules are causing the problem. Make sure the other RAM modules fit your laptop configurations, in terms of speed (Mhz) and size (GB/MB) supported.
\015\012
\015\012If none of the above worked for you - your motherboard probably faulty. \015\012In that case, you'll have to have it replaced. In at least 80% it's a problem with the graphic adapter (which is integrated with the motherboard), caused by over-heating and/or bad cooling system/ It can also be a problem \015\012with the CPU itself - but this is very uncommon.
[footnote: When it comes to laptops, replacing a damaged motherboard \015\012could be a very expensive issue. In many cases, buying a new laptop \015\012would be a wiser/profitable thing to do].

GOOD LUCK,
Pelu.
