Question about Dell Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
It would seem that you do not have a computer problem but rather a monitor problem. If you monitor displays a single line from left to right, then chances are that the vertical IC is defective and would require replacement. In some instances, the IC may not be defective but would require reheating the solder joints. In some other instances it may be the vertical capacitor and/or some other associated components.
Since this would require opening the monitor, familiarity with electronic components & circuitry, use of a DVM and/or a soldering iron, then perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified monitor technician.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
good luck and kind regards.
