Hi D,
Kindly unplug the monitor form the back of the computer and check the display,There would be a self test ,screen that would run on the monitor . Check if the screen in green in the self test.
You can also restore the setting of the monitor to factory reset, sometimes there a static that builds up on the screen and can cause the problem. Press the menu button in the front and use the + or - keys to select factory reset and press menu again.

If nothing of the above works the monitor has gone bad, if the monitor was purchased with the system then it would have the systems warranty.
If you have purchased the monitor on seprate order it would have 3 yr warranty

Vertical lines in my laptop screen

Try connecting an external monitor to the Dell Inspiron 9300 and see if the vertical line is also present on the monitor. If the monitor display is fine, then your laptop’s LCD display panel is defective. If the monitor also displays the vertical line, then your problem is with either the video card or motherboard located inside your laptop.
Not sure if the Compaq Presario has an external monitor plug, but if it does the above procedure can be applied to that one as well.

Thank You.

Vertical lines in my laptop screen

There can be 3 possible reasons for this
1)Screen connector cable is loose. You can try to re-seat it and see if works.
2)display card problem. Connect your laptop to an external monitor and see if the problem persists. If it does not then
3)You will need to get a replacement LCD screen.
Hope this helps!

Dell 19" Flat Screen Monitor

I have a DELL 2405 FPW. I had trouble the first time finding the button but it was at the very bottom of the stand under the cable channel. I'm pretty sure if it won't move up and down that it's locked in the down position. See if you have a button that will allow it to slide.
