Permanent Red Line Down the left side of the screen
I dont know what happened but my screen on my home computer shows a red line running vertically down the left side of the computer screen when turned on. Ive tried adjusting the screen resolution and nothing has helped. Can this be fixed or should i just invest in another monitor?

The screen is bad, verticle lines, red or pink hue etc. is indicative of a bad screen or there maybe a problem with the data cable you are using to attach to the computer. Try another cable first, if the problem persists, the lcd panel is failing.
Usually when there are colored lines on the LCD its because the screen is going bad. Quick way to verify this, try a different monitor on your computer and if the line goes away then you know for sure the monitor is bad.
If you try a different monitor and the line remains then you know that the video card is bad.
Please try to connect the monitor to another PC, if problem still exist then probably there's an internal problem in the circuit board of your monitor wherein an elecronic part/s might be cold soldered / defective. I recommend to bring the monitor to an authorized HP service center to fix the problem. If the monitor display is good if connected to other PC, then your previous PC should be checked if the VGA card (if there is any) is properly placed to its slot & working properly as well as it cables & connections. regards
That means the LCD panel itself (the actual glass) is broken. Don't delay, return it and get another before it's too late! The problem will most likely NOT go away, and there is no fix other than to replace the panel itself. The panel, when purchased separately, can cost more than the monitor itself.
