Screen just went mad

Was just typing a message online on my laptop (using Opera if that's relevant)when what was on the screen suddenly started racing across horizontally, repeating itself and flickering for a minute or so until in desperation I pressed 'restart' (Reminds me of when I try to tune our tv into freeview sometimes) Seems ok now as I am typing this, but might this be the sign of something about to break down big time? Laptop of course is just out of guarantee!

I think I would immediately disable your internet connection and then do an anti-virus scan of your machine..

Other than that I have no idea what could be wrong, possibly overheating - grasping at straws here...

although my antivirus should be up to date. Might be overheating since it is on 24/7 but then - it worked again after a restart
