Laptop won't boot - grey screen

Specs: Windows Vista Home Premium
I purchased this laptop a year ago (Medion Akoya MD 97960) with Vista Home Premium. I'm currently having problems when I boot it, all I get is a gray screen with vertical lines of dull blue/green/red. It sounds like the HDD is booting the OS and it's the display that's playing up, but I don't think it is because I can't access the computer through the network. Left for a couple of minutes, the screen turns gray with a large black cloud in the middle.

This is a sporadic problem, I can get it to work fine sometimes, but then it just opens with this problem and I can't use it for a couple of days maybe. It has been about three weeks this has been happening.

To clarify:
I've never dropped it, never stepped on it, always used it indoors, never exposed it to UV light, cleaned it periodically and closed it when not in use. So it is not any of these.

Could be the invertor or the data cable from base to screen..
