Laptop only shows half desktop

Hi..
Currently up an austrian mountain with half decent wifi.
Laptop screen intermittently displays ok on half screen while other half is like a product bar code.
Lines are vertical and it's always the left half gone wrong.
Windows 10
Happens with reaper but also with netflix.
Any thoughts out there?
Happy new year to boot

Sounds like broken screen, broken hinge connections, or broken screen driver.. In order of expensiveness and complexity of repairs...

Cheers,
I for once hoped you could say "push the big button that says full screen dummy"
I'll do the screen shot thing when kids give it back.
Thanks for response
