1inch black line down right hand of screen

I cannot get a full screen on my acer x223w monitor due to a 1inch black line down right hand of screen. this only appears when vista is loaded. Photos, screen savers, the lot have this black line. Windows side bar over lays on the vista screen still leaving this black line. I have updated the driver. but my devices show the monitor as a generic pnp monitor not an Acer x223w. Any ides of what to do please...

Re: 1inch black line down right hand of screen

Sounds like an inverter problem. If the power supply is internal replace the capacitors coming out of the voltage regulators. These are usually 1000mf and/or 470mf. If that doesn't do the trick look up the numbers on the 8-pin chips that drive the secondary transformers on the inverter to see if they are getting the right voltages.
Good Luck!

Re: 1inch black line down right hand of screen

Ok it's definitely not an inverter problem, it has to do with the max resolution of the monitor and the fact that it is a wide screen monitor, I have the same problem on my mac, and the display is brand new....I absolutely will not tolerate a stretched display, and so I am forced to bump down to a much lower resolution....booo acer hisssssss. my apple cinema display is 1920 x 1200 and it is 22" so why not this x223w acer!? totally lame, I am very disappointed!

Green vertical line on LCD screen

Is this on a monitor or on a laptop LCD display?

Most of the time it is due to a hardware issue like a video card or the screen itself.

When does the line appear?
A. Is it there even with the monitor or laptop turned off?
B. Is it there during the OS logo / boot screen or does it appear after the OS loads?
C. If it is a monitor, with your system turned off go into the menu of the monitor by using the buttons on the front. Is the line there?

What you can do to try and fix it is.

1. Make sure you have all the latest drivers for your video card.
2. Change the resolution of the screen.
3. Change the frequency of the monitor.

If these do not fix your issue you may want to look at getting or borrowing a video card and replacing it if this system is a desktop. If this system is a laptop and the above does not fix the issue your best bet would be to put up with it or buy a new laptop to be honest.
