Red thin line across the screen

I was watching a movie when suddenly a red thin line appeared across the screen. I tried restarting but its still there at the same point. What should I do? They told me to reinstall the notebook drivers but I want to know if its right or whether I could do something else...

Thank you

    Hi again
    The thin red line is on the screen all the time and not only when i watch video.
    I think the screen is damaged.
    Do u think that i should buy a new notebook instead of repairing the screen???

    My problem is a vertical white thin line (about 0.3 mm thickness) in the middle of the screen from up side to bottom.It is on the screen immediately

    after the computer is on and last all the time.

You could reinstall the video drivers or get updated video drivers to see if this corrects the problem. If it only happens with a movie and nothing else it may be the software you are using to watch the movie may need to be updated.If possible try a different program or DVD to watch to see if it is a program problem or DVD problem. I always tell my customers to go to the manufacturer web site and check what updates they have for your model laptop. They usually have hardware and software updates to fix known problems. I hope this helps.

    Yes. It is very expensive to replace a LCD screen. You can hook it up to a regular monitor to see if the display is OK. If it is your screen is bad. It sounds like it. I did not have all the information needed to give you a correct answer untill your 2nd post.I will start asking people to stop rating technicians untill we get all the information.ex. you have the problem all the time not just watching movies as in your 1st post. This rating effects us being able to help people and we will tend to shy away from someone who doesn't wait untill we have all the information to help them.

Thin rose line appear on lhs display


Kind of hard to understand your question but i think ive got it.

I believe your saying a thin red line appears going down or across your display.
And im sorry to say that i belive that your screen has lost some pixels due to a possible
drop, hit, or any other ware and tear, even over time, pixels seem to fade out and die on everything.
http://www.flickr.com/photos/53416219@N00/2110489041/ if its possibly something like that but smaller... I would bet to say it is dead pixels and is un Repairable, unless the Lcd is replaced.
