We really need more info.... Model and year of your MacBook and what version of OS X it's running. But briefly, in order to test the display of your MacBook, attach an external monitor or TV to see if the same thing happens to the screen there too. You will need an adapter and cable to attach an external monitor or TV.

You really need to test your 2008 MacBook by attaching it to an external monitor or TV as I stated in my first reply. We need to find out if it's the display that's bad or something else such as the graphics chipset.
