My guess is it's the graphic chipset which is defective. Since the hard drive is removed you can't do much testing. Put the hard drive back in and take a screen shot of the desktop. If the screenshot looks the same as the display, that means the graphics chipset is probably defective.

Your MacBook Pro was the first model introduced back in April 2006 so it's had a pretty good run. If the graphic chipset is defective, that means a new logic board. If it does need a new logic board it's not worth repairing as the board would cost more than the machine is worth.
