Can you maybe show us a picture?
It might be a GPU problem, or an LCD problem.
But most likely, it's a software/driver problems, or I guess the absence of drivers.

I would check for loose wires, and check the pins. Are you using VGA? DVI? HDMI? I am betting on VGA, but maybe DVI. I would be shocked if this was on an HDMI. Anyway, especially with VGA, things like this can happen if the cable isnt seating nicely. Make sure to tighten it into place if all else fails, and see if that happens. I know many people that just stick it in, and dont use the screws, and then when they get everything into place, it slightly pulls a corner out of the socket, and when they turn it on, they have lines, no color, no signal, etc. So check that first.
Damaged connectors, or even a bad wire could also be the cause. If you have a second cable, try it out.

Sorry for the crappy picture, I had to use my webcam. But more or less the bright spots are the green, and the text on top is the boot error, which is supposed to be there.
