Seeing as how you've hooked it up to an external monitor and the picture has been fine, this usually means that the lcd is the problem.
A quick run through the Dell support forum seems to indicate that your problem is caused by dead pixels. If your lappy is still under warranty obviously you'll want to get it serviced asap. Otherwise, here's a linky to ebay where you should be able to buy a new screen. They're actually not as spendy as I thought they'd be.

I think that the Inspiron 8600 also used a few different brands of lcds, I'd check into how to find what brand yours was so you can get a compatible replacement (or if it matters) on the Dell Support Forum. Some one there would be able to tell you.
