Very strange display distortion. What is it?

Hi guys!

I got here a very strange symptom:

Additionally to this kinda "foggy effect" it also looks like the picture would be both "over exposed" and 256 colors only. The reacts very slow, as the mouse cursor had a "tail". The windows fading and appearing in slow motion. Everything occurs in both wxga and framebuffer (during the boot). I had no problem before the first occurrence and since it's constant. There is also no problem while connectig to an external display (dvi and hdmi). What I read the inverter would cause failing out backlight. So what do you think is it the display panel or more worse the logic board?

Thx in advance for your time

Because the external display appeared normal, my best guess is a replacement LCD is in order.
