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.

My SyncMaster 2233 has problem, it has two straight lines, one blue, one pink, across the screen, from top to the bottom. I'd like to know how to get rid of it.


If the lines are very thin, they are broken pixels. You have to replace the monitor. I've heard of people taking their finger and trying to rub the lines out, but I have never had success with this before.

I have a thin black line across my screen half way down


You don't say whether it is a LCD monitor or a CRT one.

CRT Trinitron tubes have two thin black lines, one at about 1/3 height, one at about 2/3. This is normal and nothing to be worried about (sometimes one and more rarely both lines can't be seen).

LCD monitors should NOT have any black lines at all, and if they do it's probably a driver latch circuit gone bad -- and there's not much that can be done in practice, except replace the monitor.

Bright,thin line, in the middle of the screen, then...


1. I turn on the monitor, I hear a 'cracklin' sound
Reply: In a CRT Monitor there is a component called EHT which generates High voltage which is connected to the anode of the CRT, If there is any leakage due to moisture can cause this crackiling sound, You need to clean this high tension wire or replace the EHT ( CAUTION : BE AWARE OF HIGH VOLTAGES )

2. The screen only shows a bright, thin line.
Reply: The vertical Drive section of the monitor is faulty.

A thin horizontal line across the screen


I know I have seen thin lines in the past on older CRT monitors, these are usually wires which support the aperture grill. LCD is just a panel so this must be something different. What color is the line? It is probably an error in the scanning process.
