If connecting to a external monitor yields the same results, then it is safe to say you have a logic board/GPU issue. Unless your skilled in component level repair you will not be able to salvage the boards. There are a few patrons here who now of vendors that perform such repairs. Hopefully, someone will chime in soon with a link.
