Acer laptop screen fault

  new user 283 19:01 13 Nov 2006

I have an Acer 242 laptop running XP sp2, and recently the dispay has started to go faulty with black/white lines running up and down the screen, if the laptop is moved the display going OK until the next time.
Anyone have any idea what could be wrong and how it can be fixed
