A few things to try based on the information provided:

If external monitor - unplug and reset the video cables on both ends (pc and monitor)
adjust your video resolution and see if the line stays in the same position - if so I do not thing this is a driver issue,

try another PC connected to the monitor (external) if problem follows to another pc - issue is the monitor

Keep me posted

Second monitor is connected but screen remains

Hi, Ronald.

If you look at the function keys (F1 through F12) on the top row of your keyboard, you should see a CRT/LCD label or symbol, typically on F4 or F8 (may be different for your laptop).

Press the Fn key (typically on the left bottom of your keyboard) with that function key and you would toggle through accessing your laptop display, your external monitor display and both displays (may not be in that order).

Hope this helps.

Vista Home Premium 32-bit Problem.

Make sure your video card is properly inserted.
If it is inserted properly, or you're using on-board VGA, you may need to have the motherboard replaced. This is one of the signs that your motherboard has lived a full life.
