I bought a W530 about 3 years ago for work modelling components using 3d software and it has served me excellently with no issues however I opened up my laptop last night and was greeted with the image below.
I removed the keyboard to check that the connections were in tight and they appear to be so.
1) I start up the machine and the fan spins. The fan then stops and the screen looks like the attached image below. I completed some searches before posting this thread and couldn't see anything similar so I'd appreciate any suggestions on how to fix this!

Could the LCD panel have broken? Does the ThinkPad W530 display correctly to an external monitor?

Looks like a defective panel, what happens when you apply some pressure on the top or bottom on the panel, where the lines are displayed?
And as already mentioned above, do you get an image using an external monitor?
