Re: Matrix Style Lines
Yes, this could be a property value set in your display. Go to Control Panel, Display and hunt through your display adapter's advanced settings and see if there is a check box for display grid and turn that off.

Just want to know if the lines only appear in windows? try booting in bios setup check if the lines still appears. if not then uninstall the video driver then install latest version. if the lines appeared in all occasion then test laptop using an external monitor toggling the display Fn + F8 if no lines in external monitor replace you laptop lcd panel and lcd cable + inverter. if the line appeared in external monitor replace the mobo or video card.
It appears to be a video card/mainboard problem very common with the symptoms you have described. Try to connect the laptop to an external monitor (see the associated buttons too). No video signal on the external monitor could indicate a damaged video card/mainboard. Not worth it to be repaired and the replacement is expansive. Check the price on a professional repair store. There are new laptops on the market more powerful than yours for about 500-600$. So you can make a choice. Less common, could be a memory problem.Try the laptop with a good previously checked memory (or if there are 2 bars in your laptop, try them one by one). If you do not get any video signal on the external monitor have the laptop, first diagnostic is most probable.
In both cases, if you get a video signal on the external monitor it means your screen is defective (also expensive to be replaced).
Are these lines on the screen during the whole boot process? If so then the screen cpu and/or the video cpu has gone bad. Connect an external monitor. If the picture is clear, no lines, then the problem is the LCD screen. If the lines appear on the external monitor during the boot process then the mother board will need replacement.
Reseat the video cable connection under the keyboard, and see if the lines go away. If not, connect an external monitor, see if the lines show there. If the lines do not appear on the external monitor, then replace the LCD. If they do appear on the external monitor, replace the motherboard
In answer to your question. It may be a screen problem. as the screen has a Matrix of vertical and horizontal line configuration.
I,d suggest trying the laptop/computer on an external monitor or screen. if it works fine on an external. then it could be assumed that the TFT Panel or invertor has a fault.
if the picture/display still has vertical lines on an external monitor, then the fault may lie, with the Mainboard.
Process of elimination, before spending any Money :)
Some of the many connections to the TFT screen panel matrix itself have have either been damaged or have decayed. These tiny connections are bonded along the edges of panel and are not viably serviceable. The most common causes are impact, stress (twisting) and condensation/moisture ingress. A replacement screen panel is needed.
