How old is it?

If it's an older model with dedicated graphics you're probably seeing the first signs of the graphics chip failing so plan on replacing the system soon.

It's out of warranty now anyway. You can choose who ever you like to repair it but a 5 year old laptop is getting up there in terms of being superseded by newer faster sleeker machines so you have to weigh up spending $$$'s on a n investigation / repair or buy a new one.

well as i dont have any spare cash lying around to pay someone to fix it i was wanting to do it myself.

You still have to replace the entire logic board which is where most of the expense is.

Needs to be seen by a pro.

possibly a break or short in the cable that connects LCD Panel to the main board. Intermittent with opening and closing the lid.
