Recently my computer started having flashing lines through the screen and duplicating the screen I have tried about everything I know of to fix it. I have tried running it through a external monitor. It is a emachine e627 laptop.I would appreciate any digestions on how to solve the problem since I have hundreds of dollars invested in software and games on this computer.

It sounds as if the problem is rooted in your description. The e627 is a low end/budget laptop, and you stated you have a decent amount of games/software on this PC. Chances are running these games and software has been slowly cooking the graphics chipset. Laptops have notoriously poor ventilation to begin with, compound this with a budget system and you are asking for trouble.

The solution? A new laptop.
The bright side? Your data is still intact.

Thanks for the suggestion. I guess I will start searching for a new computer. I will probably buy a desktop this time and I will just get a case for the laptop hard drive and recover my files from it.
