Default Laptop monitor going funny then locking up

I'm not sure what the problem is. This just started happening. The monitor will go all "funny". I'm not sure how to adequately describe it. One time a strip all the way up and down in the center seemed like it just stopped syncing with the rest. But most of the time, the whole screen "locks up/distorts" and then the computer seems locked up and a restart is required, but it's possible it's just that the monitor is just not communicating properly with the motherboard anymore.

Any suggestions or ideas?

I'd start by reinstalling the video drivers before thinking about replacing any hardware...
