Sadly that's a bad sign.

It can be a failing motherboard or connection. Get estimates on repair.

Answer
Multiple issues...

My suggestions are...

-- Windows 10 upgrade (applications such as Norton when passed through upgrade from 7 or 8 can cause glitching issues). Fix: Windows recommend safemode and uninstalling apps. First check a list of known apps that cause issues with 10 upgrade. Some application developers websites have released their own windows 10 fixes.

-- Your LCD connector cable is either loose or failing.

-- Failing motherboard.

I recommend making a backup of all important files ASAP. Taking advantages of Microsoft's One Drive always makes things easier as well.

Highly unlikely but plausible scenarios:

-- Graphic drivers
-- Failing CPU

Good luck.
