I have streaks of different colors suddenly appearing on my IBM ThinkPad laptop. What caused these lines to appear? How do I get rid of these lines? I have also notices dark vertical stripes running down the screen. Is this a sign that the laptop is too old? What is causing this issues and what is the best way to resolve them?

Dear Kurt a Munoz,

This is surely fault with LCD Assembly and in most of the cases shows that your LCD Life is going to end.

Its only solution is to replace the LCD.  If you want to replace your LCD yourself then i will suggest to check following two links.

Hello, How are you? This problem sometimes occur when there is a problem in inverter. It may also happen if there is a problem in the ribbon cable which connects inverter with LCD. This may be also happened for the malfunctioning behavior of backlight. So replace inverter, ribbon cable OS backlight. This may work. Sometimes this types of problem may arise for malfunctioning behavior of VGA motherboard chip. So you should check the VGA chip and replace it. You may try it by cleaning the video card. That is exactly it. Learn more.
