    Looks like a broken CCFL (cold cathode fluorescent lamps) tube behind the screen.
    Either the specific lamp(s) or the screen will need to be replaced.

    CCFL tube replacement

    At only 7 months he should be well within the product warranty, ..or not.

    Could also be screen structural failure causing the liquid crystal to leak.

    Looks like someone closed the lid while a teaspoon was lying on the keyboard!--causing leakage of the crystal fluid. Hopefully, the warranty will cover replacement of the screen. (But if it WAS a teaspoon.....!
