You may be having a problem with the graphics driver of your laptop. You can try to download the graphics driver specific for your laptop model and operating system. The best to check if it is not an issue with the LCD is to attach an external monitor and check if the line appears on the external display.
Is the vertical line always at one location ? (on the screen)
If so, it appears that the video card/driver (on your PC or laptop) may be causing the line to appear occasionally ... i.e. flaky ... and it will likely fail (completely) in due time. To confirm it's the video card, try using another monitor (long enough) to see if it happens.
[ The line may also be caused by "dead" pixel on the screen ... but this usually happens on randomly located pixels on the screen, not on one vertical line. But, it may also be a possibility ... in which case, using a different monitor may prove it one way or the other ]
It's either one of these things is dying: Your Screen, or Your video card You can find out which by hooking your computer up to an external monitor, and if the lines appear on it, then it's your video card. If not, then it's your screen dying. And so you can either get a new screen, or a new computer.
You may have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp. Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case. The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills. Check out www.lcdparts.net
first try to hook it into an external monitor if it looks good,I would have to say you have a damaged cable on your monitor.if you are comfortable taking it apart you can try to reseat the ribbon cable on the mobo.you can usually find an online manual for disassembly.
