Yes, it's a screen problem. It could be a loose connection of the LCD and the motherboard or the lid lights gone bad. You can fix that by either resetting the connection of the screen and the motherboard or replacing the whole screen. You would need a technician to do that.
You have the beginning of a failing Display panel, and will eventually need to replace the display.. you can hold the top left and right sides of the display screen-slightly bend forward and back, you should see the blue line either go away or it will produce more lines...
This is due to a short on the circuit board panel on the backside of the display panel that controls the Pixels on the Screen.. The Pixels are controlled In a Line Grid Fashion...
The normal cause of lines across the LCD of a laptop is a damaged video
cable. The unusual cause would be the video card itself.
To determine which item is at fault, you need only attach an external
monitor to your laptop's video-out, and then swap your monitor view to
'both' or mirrored (usually just the function key (FN), plus one of the
Fkeys...look for an off-blue picture of a monitor on the Fkeys).
If the lines across the screen also appear on an external monitor, then the video card is damaged.
If the lines only appear on the laptop's LCD, but not the external
monitor, then just the laptop's internal video cable is damaged.
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.
