Does it do this if you attach an external screen and view windows through the external screen. If not, then you have a fault with the TFT panel on the laptop. This would require a replacement TFT panel.
Hi, unfortunately this is an indication of dead pixels in the LCD screen. the only fix is to replace the screen and this may be more expensive than a new computer. You could try EBAY "Want it now" section listing your exact model and serial number computer to see if some one has a screen available. Regards mistyman
This could be a failure in several areas along the path from the video card to the monitor.
Being that there is not an issue across the entire monitor the video card should be considered a last resort check.
Usually this is caused by a loose connection between the LCD driver and the LCD panel itself. Sometimes light pressure applied near the affected line will clear it up. If that does then it is a connection between the LCD panel and the connector to the LCD driver at the panel's edge.
Not much can be done unless you have it repaired by a professional or you can take it apart yourself and apply a pad of some type inside the monitor's edge to apply the needed pressure once assembled.
This might be a software issue with your video driver (follow Microsoft's built-in Help to test that, and look for an updated driver for your particular hardware) but it is fairly unlikely to be a driver issue. The thin lines running through your screen are usually due to screen failure -- hope you have your warranty, because this is a hardware issue and usually pretty expensive if you're out of pocket.
what i recommend you to test is to press behind your monitor and see that the line goes off or not.If it does..that mean you have a loose connection,it can be fix.Incase no then you have problem with your LCD.Normally if its LCD problem then you fix this problem,all you have to do is change the LCD.
