EDIT: it's an IBM Thinkpad T60 (as said in the description)
REDIT: I was told by a friend of mine that it might be a southbridge problem and that I probably need a new mobo. Any idea what a southbridge is?
Unknown Motherboard (doesn't show up in dxdiag due to unintentional damage a few months ago)

You need to connect your laptop to an external monitor to start some troubleshooting
Does this lappy have integrated graphics or a separate video card?
You mentioned this is also happening in Linux. Are you booting to a live CD or are you running it in a virtual machine?
Have you tried booting into safe mode using the standard VGA driver or using a lower resolution? Just curious....

By booting into safe mode, your current video driver will not load. It will load the standard VGA drive built into Windows. While in safe mode you could also disable the normal video driver in device manager and then try booting regularly to see what happens. If you still get the same symptoms in safe mode there is a pretty good chance it is indeed the LCD.
Not sure what use that would do. As I described before, this happens at any time the monitor is on besides phase changes (i.e. changing from boot loader to OS or from startup password to bootloader) so I am certain it's not software. As for the standard VGA driver, if this were possible I would.
