Hi Roz, welcome to the forums.

When you say that you mess with them all day and then they go, what do you mean? It would help if you can upload a photo of what the lines look like please (via your camera/phone, rather than a screenshot) - it may help us identify the type of problem.

Does this problem occur from the moment you turn the laptop on - i.e. do you see the lines when you get your boot logo, or only when you are in Windows? This will help guide us further.

My guesses would be either:
  • Damaged display ribbon cable in the laptop - particularly if the lines change if you move the laptop.
  • Driver problem (try updating to the latest graphics drivers - if you let us know the model number, we can help find them).
  • Overheating can occasionally cause graphical corruption, particularly on laptops. Try making sure all of your vents are clean with a gentle vacuum.
  • Hardware fault.

Horizontal lines are in general a problem with the display itself. The TFT lines have minimal to no contact when cold but making contact when warmed up. You might be able to get a new display for a little money. I just replaced a Display on a Lenovo 15" Laptop. The screen cost me $25 and it took only 15 minutes to change it.....
