Sounds like screen cable fault or video chip problem. Can you use BIOS setup screen without problems? If not, a hardware problem is indicated.

If the problem occurs only after windows has loaded, it may be a driver issue.

You can also attach an external monitor. See if the lines also appear there.
Then you can infer if its the screen cable or video card/chips in the laptop.
