I would try a couple of things. First and cheapest way is to try and update your driver. If that does not work, then try to remove and reseat your memory card(s), and if all else fails you will need to buy a new graphics card approx 75 to 150 depending on how good you want to go.

Your lcd screen is going bad. You can verify this by plugging an external monitor to your laptop. if the external monitor shows without the vertical stripe it means the video card is good but your old screen is bad. If the external monitor shows the stripe then it means the video card 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.
In most cases with these lcds...when you see verticle lines and white outs, the most likely cause for this is a screen failure. Your lcd panel is failing and will fail, they are not servicable. First though check the data cable on the left side of the panel, it is secured in the back of the panel and it has been known to come loose from the socket annd this will cause visual problems of many different levels, but that is about it other than changing the screen out. These screen are relatively easy to change out and can be bought on Ebay for as low as 50 bucks.
Following factors could be causing this problem and solution as well:
1) Cable Cut: check is to see if the cable between the screen and laptop is pinched or cut. Every laptop has this wire that runs through one of the hinges
2) If this problem temporary i mean for some seconds then it could be a short signal cut problem to screen which causes screen distortion
3) Connect an external monitor and restart the laptop. If you see the same
strip on the external video, then that is the motherboard or the video
card problem in case you have a video card on your laptop apart from integrated graphics chip
Sounds like your screen has developed a problem. You wouldn't necessarily see any damage when you opened the bezel up. I would suggest you take it to a repair shop and have them test it and replace the screen if necessary
normally with vertical stripes it can happen due to
1.a bad LCD (small little chip inside LCD and can't manual repair)
2.a loose connection cable
so here what I do is first I try to tab at then back of the LCD and see that the problem goes away or not.If yes then a loose connection.
if no what I would do here ,coz I have a spare LCD I just exchange to test it...if the problem goes away then a BAD LCD.
Incase of verticle line due to bad LCD you can't repair it trust me.All the small IC chips are blended with board and can't really be repair.More quesiton feel free to post here.
