Y430 Dunno if its Hardware or software problem, please help!

Got a Y430 Ideapad with windows Vista basic.

1] Lately having screen problems... lot of colors appear as if a magnet is placed on the screen. Screen jumps and flickers randomly for example if I were to open MS word it gets worse for PDF not so and if videos no probs with jumping but the color pattern is changed

 

2] I am not able to personalise settings. Right click->Personalise opens a folder box that disappears by itself. Same happens with Windows update icon. I get message 'Windows Update is available' if clicked the folder opens and closes by itself.

 

What could be the problem? Is it software or hardware? Please suggest ways to detect where the problem.

Are you using antivirus-malware protection?
Get it scanned for infection first.
