    Sounds to me like the screen was either damaged in some way or perhaps something to do with the video drivers. Did you change any settings when it began, or did it just randomly happen one day? I know some monitors have this issue and sometimes it's a QA thing and you may be able to get it fixed if you still have warranty.

    Have you checked it yet with an external monitor?

    I don't think I still have warranty on it, because it's like 7 years old.

    I didn't mess with any of the settings, though, aside from testing some of them (and putting them back the way they were) after this problem already occurred.

    It just randomly appeared one day, while I've been back in WV, visiting my parents.

    Not yet, but I haven't had access to an external monitor yet.
    I'll probably have to wait until I fly home to do that.

    Update: Since staying in a cabin this weekend, which is much warmer than my parents' house, the effect seems to disappear almost completely.

    So I'm thinking that maybe this just happens because of the cold.
    It's been about 30 - 40 F in their house / in my room.

    I just didn't think that the cold did that to laptop monitors.

    Cold makes all LCDs react lot slower than they have to.

    More info about the pattern can be found here, aswell as tests to show what method the panel uses aswell as other things to mess around with LCDs : http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/inversion.php
