I had the same issue for the last week with my HP Envy 17 (out of warranty for more than a year now): at random moments it started to flicker and at boot I also had a white screen for a minute...
Just opened the laptop, pulled all connectors out of the motherboard and reattached them (see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v13U5Bh0n8k for my laptop, at 5:38 it's the monitor connector), and now everything seems to be working again...
+You can try searching on youtube or google how to disassemble your type or laptop, but...
If you're not that handy or do not have IT knowledge, it's better to let someone else do this, because you can easily break connectors on the motherboard that can result in a laptop you can't fix any more!
