I've had this laptop for a few years already; I usually don't use it that much. I have a small vertical white line down the center of the screen. What can I do to fix this issue or maybe a way to diagnose it correctly?
What usually causes this; can it be that I left it in the sun, left items on top of it when not in use... what?
Okay go to: Flexcode.org/lcd.html
Once there select toggle full screen, then try 2nd method. Click on ( go full screen now) Let this run for 30mins. to an hour. Keep on full screen.
Your labtop screen pixel can be stuck on that color. This should help it go back to normal. If not, I have another method. Try this one out first. *NOTE* Do not try the Pressure Method or Tapping Method.

What is happening to your laptop is the power line connecting a row of pixels is failing so only partial colors are showing up causing the vertical white line. Usually screen replacement is the only answer to fix it.

You mention in your post to branded laptops. You can try to check if the problem is from the LCD or from the Video card. Connect your laptop to an external monitor and check if the white vertical line appears, if yes replace motherboard if video card is integrated, if expansion then replace video card alone. If no lines from the external monitor then laptop LCD has the problem.
Just for the sake of information, the white of the screen means the backlight is working. LCD displays work by allowing light to pass through at different wavelengths, creating 'color.'
I doubt that your system has a separate, replaceable video card.
This sounds a lot like a chip has developed and thermal problem. If you can buy 'freeze spray' there, try shooting it into various openings of the case when the problem is present.
If this affects the display, you are probably going to need a replacement motherboard since the majority of the chips (ICs) are placed by robots and nearly impossible to replace by hand due to the pin spacing that is typical for modern ICs.
If you are courageous, you can get the case apart with 'jeweler's' screwdrivers.
You will find that the screen assembly is connected to the main board via a flat ribbon cable that is likely stuffed into a questionable connector.
You might try carefully pulling that cable from the connector and even more carefully, plug it back in again.
Unfortunately, few companies are using any gold on connector contacts anymore and the materials used may oxidize and cause the kind of problem you are having.
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.
