Black lines across my laptop

That's it, really. Two tightly-knit black lines a quarter of the way along the top and two tightly-knit 2" lines a quarter of the way down, a third of the way across.

Is my laptop about to die?

There comes a time when one has to make a decision.

How annoying is it?

Are you prepared to spend £100 on a £300 Laptop?

If you are - Take it into a High Street Repair Shop (Curries/PCW are extortionate) and ask for a quote. BUT Before you do that - Back up (make an external Copy of) all your Files

Thanks, Eddie. Not at all annoying at the moment, well, only very slightly, I suppose.

Think will just carry on regardless and see what happens. All files already backed up externally.

Think that's about it, then. Thanks all for interest and assistance.

The only other thing you could try is to reinstall the drivers however because it doesn't happen on the external monitor then it is probably a hardware issue.
