Hi, this sounds like a video problem.
First, go to BIOS and see if the lines are still there ; reboot the PC and tap on F10.
If the lines are still there then it is a hardware issue. If the lines are not there then it is possible it is a driver related issue.
You can also try connecting an external monitor. If the video is fine on the monitor, then the issue is with the LCD panel.
If the video is also corrupt on the external monitor then the problem is with your system board and would require a replacement.

Thanks. But how to I "go to BIOS"? Is that safe mode?
If it's a driver issue, how do I then proceed? Where do I go, which driver do I choose, how and in what directory do I place it?
How do I connect my laptop to an external monitor? Must it too be a PC or can it be a Mac?

I had no problem with this until this morning when I turned on my laptop. It had red lines running across my screen like a red horizontal snow storm in straight line wind. It covers all my unused space but does not inhibit the use of the space. I can type or do what I need to do but everything that is normally white is covered with moving red streaks.
