Horizontal lines on Toshiba laptop screen

I have recently inquired about a horizontal line that appeared on my Toshiba A100 notebook's Lcd display. I watch a lot of streaming videos and DVD movies on my note book. So I am afraid that my Lcd panel has come to the end of it's life. It started with just one thin line but now it has gone out of control. Every week or so I find there are new lines. Anybody has any ideas about this. If I have to replace the lcd panel how much would it cost? I do not think I would attempt to replace it myself because I am not an expert. Is it a hard job? Earlier somebody told me to run a white screen saver overnight to get the dead lines go again. Every time I do that the line absorbed the white color. So It looks like there are no lines (It does it with every single color by the way) But once I exit the screen saver the multi color lines appear again. Please help

When u start the system(post screen) can u see the lines? Replacing the screen is expensive but still u can use a desktop monitor.

yes the lines appear even in bios settings. I connect it to a tv monitor and the lines does not appear there. I think this means it is at the end of it's use. Since I don't have a desktop and i sometimes use it out side my home replacing the screen would solve the problem. How much costly are we talking about here. Does it cost as much as buying a new laptop? By the way I noticed that whenever I run the cursor near the lines the lines gets distorted.
