    Could be a faulty display cable. It's a 9 year old machine so could be any number of problems. Either take it apart and start diagnosing things one by one or take it to a local repair shop and ask them to have a look.

    Not worth putting money into a computer that is 8 years old.
    If you can't fix it on the cheap, then it's time to start looking for a replacement.
    If not new, perhaps an Apple-refurbished.

    In the meantime, start keeping a current backup.
    I'd suggest a cloned backup using either CarbonCopyCloner or SuperDuper.
