Almost looks like the ribbon cable to the monitor is ripped. Try squeezing around the bottom of the screen and the top of the keyboard. If the screen changes in any way, your probably rubbing the broken cable.

Someone already pointed it out but you should try to reseat the ribbon cable. Really these ribbon cables can be loose on brand new screens. I have had it happen. These laptop manufacturers are in a race to make the thinnest most fragile design. You don't have much to lose now by trying.

It was the ribbon case. I was able to reseat it and it looks normal again. Thanks a lot for your help, guys! I thought for sure I'd be out a good chunk of change, something I really can't afford right now.
