Question about Computers & Internet
You maybe experiencing problem with the LCD itself or the display driver. If its the LCD itself, you will need to replaced the LCD panel. For you to be able to isolate the problem, please follow these steps:
1. Restart the computer then keep on tapping F8 on the keyboard while the computer is turning on.
2. There will be a black windows that will appear on the screen where you can choose Safemode.
3. Boot the computer from Safemode and check if the line is still visible.
4. You can also try to go to the BIOS.
5. Restart the computer then keep on tapping F2 on the keyboard.
6. A blue screen will appear, please check if the vertical line is still visible.
7. If the line is still there, that means that the problem is with the LCD itself. If the line is not there, you can try to update the display driver from the manufacturer's website.
I hope this information will help. Thank you for using FixYa.
