Your Display cable (inside your monitor) needs to be replaced.

I would look on ebay to try and find the part and then take it to a local tech to replace it for you as I would not recommend anyone take apart a monitor (LCD OR CRT) if you had never done so before.

OR, Buy a new monitor.

Maybe your monitor (Dell?) is from origin a Sony Trinitron. They have 1 or 2  visible horizontal wires used to hold the aperture grille in place over the electron gun. This is a minor drawback of the Trinitron standard.

I had a white line appear across my monitor after a pop-up offered to stop some control applet that was slowing my display and I accepted. I got tired of the white line after a day and I used Norton Go Back to revert my system to the state it was in two days earlier.
It worked beautifully and afterwords I needed only to copy back to my HD an Excel file that I had taken the precaution to save on a flash drive.

SOURCE: Thin line across computer screen

This might be a mediaplayer issue. Google on EHtray.exe and you will find a microsoft page with a number of filenames related to these kind of problems. Check by pressing CNRL-ALT-DEL and check if you see any of the filenames on the processes tab. Than stop the file and see if the black line disappears.

How do i get rid of a dark thin line going across my lap top ???


That cannot be repaired as the screen on your notebook has layers and between those layers gas is compressed within thin columns. In your case your screen got a minute leak in one of the columns and now that column is unable to produce image. Hence, It can't be repaired. You have to change the entire screen.
