Question Laptop screen, where's it gone?

Hi all, having a nightmare with my laptop, the screen has just gone off. When I start it up it is black with a few horizontal white lines. After a while you can see very faintly what is on the screen in a sort of negative ( black & white ), then it goes totally white. Any help would be appreciated, cheers, kets.

I'd say either the contrast ratio on the monitor is set way off, or the video card is playing up
