Laptop Screen Goes White/Jumpy After Idle

Compaq / Presario cq50

Specs: Windows Vista
Hi, I have had a Compaq Presario CQ50 laptop for about two years now and it has been working fine until two weeks ago. When the laptop wakes up from an idle, after having the screen saver on, instead of going right to the screen where I left off, the screen goes white and jumpy, as if it's trying to show the screen and can't. This was only happening for a couple of seconds, but now it happens almost every time the laptop wakes from an idle, and it is lasting longer now, for around 30 seconds or so before finally showing the screen. If I put the computer in hibernation the problem doesn't happen, but sometimes if I put the computer to sleep, it will still have this problem when it wakes up. Is this a sign that my screen is dying and if so, is there any way that it can be fixed?

Hi there, no i haven't found a solution and still have the problem with the screen, but at least it is working for the time being. Let me know if you find a fix for this and I will do the same.
