I'm sorry to report that this is most likely a problem with the screen itself. You would need to have it replaced in order to get rid of them.
One way you can test this is to hook up your laptop to an external computer screen. If it's not a monitor problem then the lines would also display on this screen also. If they don't, a new laptop screen is in order.
Normally the screens are one of the most expensive parts of a computer and if it's and older laptop replacing the screen can sometimes cost more then purchasing a new computer.
