Laptop screen with verticle lines

  1. A week or two a go my laptop developed a verticle line of white sort of broken pixels down my screen. I thought I must have bashed it and made something come loose.

    At first the line came and went when i moved my laptop screen, and i thought meh maybe if i leave the laptop to cool it will fix it. That didn't happen though and after a few hours the line stuck on. The only way to make it dissapear was to flex my laptop screen, but when i unflexed it the line came back.

    A few days went on and now my laptop has developed 4 verticle lines of colour (one red, one green, another red and one white).

    When i flex my screen they all dissapear. So thats why i'm guessing something must be loose and it IS fixable.
    What do you fellows thinks?

    All help appreciated, and i'd rather not buy a new screen =D

    Your LCD screen is damaged, maybe from setting something heavy on top of the closed laptop. A repair shop may be able to fix this, but I doubt if there's anything you can do yourself
