Screen Issues, flashes of black and white

HP Pavilionx360 Convertible 14m-ba1xx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hey guys, 

I am having a huge problem that seems to happen when it wants to, or when I feel like the laptop itself is touched wrong on the keyboard area. I am experiencing a huge issue where I can be using the mouse pad, typing, placing the laptop down, or sometimes nothing at all and my screen decides to flash with white/greyish boxes there is no noise that occurs, the screen just decides to act up like displayed in the picture provided. For them to go away I have to turn the computer off and by that time the computer has trouble turning on. I don't know what to do or what it could be but I am hoping to find a solution one way or another.

Unplug the AC adapter from the computer.
