AMD Radeon 6550M is solder to motherboard only repair shop/ service can replace it but price will be enormous ;/

This can be also drivers issue:

Use this http://www.guru3d.com/content-page/guru3d-driver-sweeper.html
And follow instruction :
Use the official uninstaller(s) of the driver(s) you want to uninstall.
Reboot your PC in Safe Mode.
Run Driver Sweeper and select what to clean.
Analyse lists all the entries possible to remove, cleaning removes the entries selected.
Reboot to normal mode.
Install fresh drivers.

Is not possible to do this.
Anyway try to check if this lines show up if you plug your laptop to monitor, if not you have problem with laptop screen or signal cable inside it.

Your laptop model ?
