Hello @mormont001, welcome to Computer Forums 👋

This is an odd issue. Are the lines static or do they come and go? How often?

My gut feeling would be to say this is something hardware related, perhaps a faulty screen or, commonly, it’s the LVDS cable from the motherboard to the monitor - they are normally routed through the hinge and they slowly break down as they age through being moved around when the lid is opened/closed.
