Try this:
Turn it off.
Disconnect power cord and any other device attached to it.
Take battery out.
Without anything attached. Hold down the power button for 10-15 seconds.
Connect the power cord only.
Hold down F2 (while it's off)
Turn it on while holding down F2.
Let go of F2 when something comes out of the screen.
If multi colored lines still appears.
You have either defective LCD(screen) or video card.

Display shows lines and color not displayed properly


A line vertically down the screen (usually bright green) is a failed column strobe. This can be caused by the connections at the top of the screen failing or the strobe chip starting to die.

Random colours can be caused by a cracked screen or a failed video card.

Best to take it to a repair shop for it to be assessed.

LCD gets vertical colored lines;then all power turn off


Have tech support install a new power inverter for you or the protective sheathing has worn off of the wires behind the screen and the wires are touching and shorting out.  This happens when the wires are not properly routed out of the way when closing and opening the lid.  Over time the excessive crimping wears the protective vinyl off and the wires touch each other.

Vertical lines in my laptop screen


My understanding is that you have 2 laptops with the same problem, if that is the case, you need to replace the lcd. When you have lines on lcd's, that is a sign of a bad lcd.
