    Your inverter/back plane is on its way out. It will need replaced. IF you think you may be technically able. You can check eBay for replacement parts.

    Google "screen replacement" for your model laptop. You should find a wealth of knowledge about the steps involved. It is not that difficult to do really. Or take it to a repair shop and get an estimate.
