I brought my monitor at a computer show in nyc and a white line across the screen appeared days after using the monitor. It hasn't dropped or anything and this line is starting to get on my nerves. I have the reciept and everything I just don't know where to go from there and i'm wishing I just brought my monitor in a regular store.

Hook a spare monitor to the video output, if picture okay the LCD panel display will need to be replaced, go to www.ebay.com type make and model of laptop, refine search to screen. But if both show the same symptom it is the video graphics card.
Your lcd screen has gone bad and needs to be replaced. To isolate that it's the screen or the video card borrow a monitor from a relative, neighbor, friend or co-worker and plug it into the laptop. If the borrowed screen displays fine without any problems then your original screen is bad. If the borrowed screen shows the white area with black leakage ink as your old monitor then the video card in the computer is bad.
Plug in an external monitor and see if thedisplay shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crtmonitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vgaport. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will showon most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systemswill require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold downthe FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thruF12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will havethe icon of a display.
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.
The beeps are usually an error code meaning either the RAM or video card has went bad or are not properly seated. Leaving it out as you did could have caused the parts to come unseated when you moved the unit. Try reseating the RAM & video card and then retry booting. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
It could be one of three things, the first two could be an easy fix, the last one calls for a qualified repair person and could cost you
-first, The lcd cable assembly is loose, make sure it's seated properly. if problem still exists try to Disconnect the monitor cable from the computer and turn the monitor on leave it plugged in to the electric socket.it will display a diagnostic colorbar are the lines still there. if not your problem might be a cable or video card. if they are still there have a technician evaluate the monitor.
-second, The inverter card may need to be reseated
-last, The lcd has a thin line crack and needs to get replaced
It would be helpful to know about the inner workings of an lcd screen and how to access them. It shouldn't be to difficult if your computer savvy. I want to caution you about getting shocked. an lcd still has power stored in capacitors. you should be able to drain those capacitors by leaving the monitor on and unplugging it from the electrical plug wait 10 sec or until all lights go out on the monitor.
If none of this works then Your monitor is defective, and nothing you can do to fix it... Call where you got it from for a replacement
check the video cable
and see if it;s properly seated.
run the laptop with something that uses memory. if the video chip it going to show signs of problems, it will be more prominent when the laptop gets hot.
most cases laptop motherboards have integrated video cards and cannot be replaced.
