White lines appear right in the middle of my Dell XPS M1210 screen

My Dell XPSM1210 has developed these weird lines right in the middle of the screen. When I connect an external monitor the lines disappear and the display is fine.

"It can be one of 4 things, of the top of my head.

The ribbon cable connecting to your laptop screen.
Solution: Fixable by going to one of those computer repair shops that also deal in laptops. Of course, you can also go to a Dell representative in your general area. But may be a bit more expensive
The screen itself.
Solution: Probably needs to be replaced. Quite annoyingly so because it's always more expensive. Computer repair shops or Dell.
More rarely, the inverter board.
I find it odd the lines are white. So why I thought of this one.
Solution: Needs to be replaced. Cheaper than the above two.
Bad soldering or dislodged cable.
Solution: The cheapest, eh. No replacement parts. Just putting things back in place."
