A green line suddenly appeared on my laptop. It runs straight down, and sometimes it goes away. I don't really know what to do. Bending/twisting the screen gets the line to go away, at times. I don't really think that's good for the screen, so I try not to do it. I haven't dropped the laptop at all and the screen appears to be fine, with no obvious cracks. Can someone help me?

"....a newly bought Acer Aspire 3810T...." It's NEW.. why mess around with it.
Read the manual that came with it. If the green line means somthing, it will be in the manual or Quick Sart guide. If not, it's defective and should be returned for exchange or repair.. under warranty.
This is a fault with the display driver. The only possiblity is to check if there is any loose connection in the lines leading from the mainboard to the display through the hinges.
If by checking the line disappears then the fault is confirmed as this harness can be defective.
otherwise the drive IC can be faulty.
Have a friend had this issue on his older laptop (more than 10 green lines near center). The TFT/LCD is damaged. Replace is the only thing you can do. But the cost may get you half a netbook.
Or you can stick with using External Monitor like a desktop replacement.
Try connecting an external monitor to the Dell Inspiron 9300 and see if the vertical line is also present on the monitor. If the monitor display is fine, then your laptop’s LCD display panel is defective. If the monitor also displays the vertical line, then your problem is with either the video card or motherboard located inside your laptop. Not sure if the Compaq Presario has an external monitor plug, but if it does the above procedure can be applied to that one as well.

I know not everyone has this ability, but if you can, go to a friend's
house and hook up an external monitor to your laptop. You may need to
use the function keys to switch from LCD to external, but if the lines
go away on the external, you have a bad LCD. If the line shows up
still on the external, then your problem is either:
a) video driver (free, easy fix) b) bad inverter (video 'outputter') ...approximately $10-50/varies + labor costs to replace c) bad video card/motherboard ...usually between $200-$400 + labor to replace
