My first suggestion would be to try a different monitor and see if the problem persists.

Plug in an external monitor.

No that`s not desirable because doing so is an elaborate process; I am not ready to try that; suggest to me any software repair/installation to correct it

We need to find out whether it is a hardware, or software problem first.
Plugging in an external monitor is nowhere near elaborate.

MOONIE, you need to try an external monitor to see if the problem is replicated.

'suggest to me any software repair/installation to correct it' is not really an option unless you try the above suggestion.

Then we can move forward

Now that we have eliminated the obvious it becomes a hardware problem of the following types

Loose connection.
Driver needs updating or re-installation.
Video adapter is overheating or failing.
Drivers are loaded in a bad spot on disk.

First I would install/re-install the latest drivers
Blow out the vents with compressed air.
Open 'er up and check the video connections. Granted this is not either easy or desirable, but may be a last resort.
Get an external USB monitor adapter.
Get a new laptop.

And try a Linux Live CD.

I agree with Lighthouse, try using a live CD (an Ubuntu install disk, or even a Windows 7 install disk) to see if the problem persists. If it goes away then it would be a software problem.
