I think this is most likely a monitor problem. Can you try a different monitor of computer to the monitor? That would help pinpoint the problem. Is it under warranty?

Single vertical red line

Hello Monastirion,

Is the red line there all of the time without exception, for instance when you initially turn on your pc, is it there before the operating system boots?

If so, the monitor itself is most likely broken. I would return it to wherever you bought it, if possible.

A single vertical red line

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.
