I will give you a small step through which you would be able to know whether its a hardware or its a software issue.

You need to log in to the BIOS. Do not change anything in the BOIS just check whether you have that red line in the BIOS.
If you see the line while you are in the BIOS, that means its a hardware problem and you need to contact the manufacturer (In this case HP ). You should get a replacement if its under warranty.

If you do not see the red line in the BIOS than it is a software issue and you need to start with reinstalling the Display drivers.

Note : - Steps to go to BIOS. ( Dont change anything in BIOS )
Turn off the computer
As soon as you turn it on start tapping the key "F2". ( "Del" in some brands).

Hope that will give you a good insight.

There is a vertical red line that runs down the screen on our Sanyo TV. It is just a thin line but it is annoying because you know it is there. Any suggestions?

thin lines are associated with the connection of the pixels on the screen in the grid. If its under warranty get it fixed before expiry as its not a cheap fix.
Red lines are not convergence problems they are component problems so you cant adjust it out
