Hi,
Disconnect the monitor from the back of the laptop . Check if the monitor is still purple in the self test feature check . Or there is a vertical line. If the color and the line is not there in the self test. Check the signal cable for any bent or broken pins. If the same is not the issue .
Check the video card drivers for problems.

Thanks
Proton

Why does my monitor have colored vertical lines?


Hi Shannon,

I don't have good news for you. Coloured vertical lines is a symptom of terminal failure of LCD screens. Most common in laptops, monitors, and TVs. Problem only gets worse with time with more lines appearing, then expanding to cover a whole side of the screen. 30 - 50% normally.

Screen particially blacking out with vertical lines at bottom of my DELL laptop. at the bottom of laptop screen there are vertical lines @ 2" they are blue, dark gray,white, purple, light green lines....


Tryconnecting an external monitor to the laptop. You may have to select the videooutput to display on the external monitor by holding down the blue key and pressing the blue CRT/LCD (located on one of the keys, likeF8,F9, etc..). If the problem occurs on the external monitor with the batteryor AC power, then you have a problem with either the video card or motherboardin the laptop. If the problem does not happen using the external monitor thenyou laptop's LCD display is going bad.

Pink/purple vertical line visible


Anytime you see visible lines running through a display, this is usually an sign of an eminent screen failure. It could stay that way for weeks or the lines could multiply and then it could fail. There is no repair for this, only screen replacement.

LCD Dell Monitor displaying purple and green rather then picture.


sounds like your monitor is starting to go out. if there are any speakers near your monitor, it is likely magnetic interference. try moving your monitor to a different area and see if it still does this. if it does, i would replace the monitor. if it doesn't, just simply reorganize the area around your monitor and it should go away after degaussing the screen.

HP Pavilion ZD8000 vertical lines issue


Hi,
In answer to your question. It may be a screen problem. as the screen has a Matrix of vertical and horizontal line configuration.
I,d suggest trying the laptop/computer on an external monitor or screen. if it works fine on an external. then it could be assumed that the TFT Panel or invertor has a fault.
if the picture/display still has vertical lines on an external monitor, then the fault may lie, with the Mainboard.

Process of elimination, before spending any Money :)

Vertical white line in center of monitor


Your monitor may have been cracked somehow...

Try restarting and look to see if the line is there immediately from the start or does it only show up when your operating system (windows/linux) loads?
