SOURCE: Lenovo T-61 horizontal lines on right side of screen

sounds like you have a defective lcd screen, there are these conductive rubber pieces that lead the signal into the lcd panel and once the connection deteriorates there is no going back. this could still be replaced, there are laptop repair places that do it, but you have to have to weight your options with buying a new laptop, repair could be up to 50% of what your's is worth as a 2nd hand laptop.
if you're up for it, you can replace it yourself, it's pretty much plug and play, look for guides online, screens are on ebay.

If you are in Windows 7, on your laptop, right click on an empty area of your screen. Click, 'Screen Resolution' from the choices there.
On that screen, go down to 'Orientation:' and select 'Landscape'. If 'Landscape' is already checked, choose 'Landscape (flipped)' from the choices. Click OK to save your changes. If you are running different Operations System advise.

Picture is 90 degrees out i.e. portrait not landscape. Have had to stand screen on its side. How do I correct this please?

If you are running Vista or XP, pressing Ctrl+Alt+(arrow key) roates the screen. Play about with different arrow keys until you find the one that gets the screen back to normal.
In windows 7, go to the control panel > Appearance and Themes > Display, and select "Change display settings". Under "orientation", choose "landscape", and you should be back to normal.
