There could be a lot of point of failure on this issue

-the questions are

1. are you seeing it even before windows is loded up?
2. is the bar stable there or it is kinda moving?

if you can see it even before windows is loaded, it mens that its not a video driver issue
You can open up the chasis and reseat the LCD ribbon
it colud also be your grafix card (slim posibility)

if you can only see it on windows

a. boot to VGA mode
-while booting up the computer
-keep hitting F8
-then it wll give you the boot options
-select boot to VGA mode
(it will start the PC with the native windows grafix driver)
if you cant see it on VGA mode, just reinstall the grafix card driver

There is a vertical black bar along the left side of my TV. It started as a thin yellow/white bar and has grown to be about 2 or 3 inches wide, blocking that portion of the screen.

The LCD wafer has gone bad, and more lines will begin to appear over time. It can be replaced but the cost may be comparable to replacing the entire television.

Verticall bar on the screen

A vertical bar is frequently a sign that the matrix decoder has failed.

The usual solution is to replace the display panel itself. Dependent upon the model, sometimes this may not be economically viable.

There is also a possibility that the connexion between the display panel and the motherboard may have come loose. Try removing the connexion and replacing it before you replace the display panel.

Check the main filter capacitors at its power regulator board. Replace if found bulged or damaged. Replace all secondary side supply rails' filter capacitors too. The fault is with damaged electrolytic capacitors at the power regulator board itself.

One or both of the following:

Your signal processor is failing OR the lcd display panel itself is failing. When one fails it's prudent to replace both.

Yellow vertical lines on the screen of my DELL inspiron 9300

The pixels are shot - common for lower priced LCD monitors. Once it starts, it will continue. Theres no inexpensive fix for it - time to retire the Compaq
