Sounds like either your monitor cable is loose or going bad or your LCD is going bad. This is beyond the scope of what we can help with remotely and I would suggest taking your MacBook to the Genius Bar at your local Apple Store.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
