    This is a consistent problem and it is getting worse. When I leave it ON for a long time I find more lines in the screen.

It could possibly be the video driver for the machine.

It could also be a loose connection between the screen and the motherboard.

Is this a consistent problem?
If not, when do the lines appear and for how long?

    There is a very good chance that you will need to buy a new screen to replace that one. From what you have wrote it seems that the screen is simply just going bad.

    Search for
    Compaq Presario X6000 Series 17 WXGA+ Glossy 1 CCFL laptop LCD

    That's the screen for your laptop model if you choose to replace it.

Vertical strip of flashing horizontal lines on Acer Aspire 7551G screen

More than likely it's the lcd screen and will have to be replaced. I could be the video card, but most likely the lcd screen especially when you can put pressure on the screen and cause changes. To isolate the problem try connecting another monitor to the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the laptop. If the Borrowed monitor displays ok, then the problem is with your lcd screen and the video card is ok. If the Borrowed monitor displays the same as your lcd screen then the problem is with your video card inside the computer.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

Once you narrow it down to the lcd screen as being the problem you might try taking the lcd screen apart to reseat the lcd cable on the back at the top of the lcd. Just unplug it and plug it back into the connector. You can also try doing the same where the lcd cable plugs into the motherboard. Just pull it out and put it back.

Can I get a presario to boot vga output only?

Yes you can go ahead and use an external moniter to use your notebook but reformating would not help. try to go to HP.COM nad get the graphis driver and bios updated still if its the same you need to contact HP and they would take it for repair, however if it is not in warranty then they would charge you, for repair,since the graphics card is always embedded with the motherboard it will not be possible to replace it on your own. you can also check the repair prices in local stores.
