Actually that looks totally like a hardware issue. If the external monitor showed everything just fine, no problems, then it is either the actual screen or the cable that connects it. Looking at the issue, it seems more in line with the cable either being damaged or loose that is causing this. The laptop would have to be opened up and the cable completely disconnected, and then reconnected, on both ends, to see if it is loose. If that doesn't resolve it then the cable will have to be checked for damage and possibly replaced. After that you are looking at replacing the whole display.

You can either try doing this yourself, if you feel comfortable doing so, or take it to a tech. Unless the laptop is still under warranty. In that case you should contact the manufacturer.
