Yeah the title is weird but that's the 3 possibilities i narrowed down to

When I turn the laptop on, the lcd illuminates (I can see the backlight) but nothing shows up on screen, and the HDD makes really high-pitched screeching noises. It boots up fine though because I can hear that sound Vista plays when it displays the login screen. If i succesfully login (with nothing but backlight on the screen), the LCD fades to green, white, then to black again.
Weird thing is, as long as i login then force off the computer, when it boots again normally, and the HDD doesn't make the weird noise.

At first I thought it was the LCD problem, but my friend suggested it could be the GPU because this computer runs really hot (during MW2 it runs up to 98C). Then I thought it might be the HDD because of the weird noise... any ideas? Thanks!
