The lines appeared after transferring my monitor back home from work. I'm assuming during the car ride the monitor took a hit which created the problem. Model is VG248QE.
Is there anyway of fixing this at home? 
Are there any parts that could be ordered for an at home repair?
Is it a lost cause?
Any suggestions welcome.
Thank you all for your time!

:welcome:   okstate1212,


Do you have another computer that you can test the screen with, a notebook that has a compatible video port will do, alternatively try starting your computer in Safe Mode only (no networking) to see if it could be driver related.

Restart your PC. When you get to the sign-in screen, hold the Shift key down while you select Power Power icon > Restart.
After your PC restarts to the Choose an option screen, select Troubleshoot > Advanced options > Startup Settings > Restart.


After your PC restarts, you'll see a list of options. Select 4 or F4 to start your PC in Safe Mode.
