    I m having a similar problem with my screen, except the vertical lines have widened and sometimes disappear only to reappear again wider.I had my brother take the screen apart to trouble shoot.There wasnt any evidence of water seepage.So far the best best solution is to buy another screen as i think the screens are designed to fail.

If the display is ok on an external monitor, then the problem is probably a bad tab board (tab welds) and the lcd will have to be replaced. If the external display is the same as the lcd then the inverter board or video card is bad.

There is a green line about 2 inches from the left edge of the screen.It is vertical. How can I get fid of it? Thank you Solange


Generally and indication of a hardware failure in the LCD screen. Likely about the same cost to replace as to repair. If the computer is still under warranty, contact Dell for a replacement

Hi
You probably have a mother board issue. Most likely the video chip. Take this to a reputable repair person or check my website www.micromendllc.com.

The issue could be one of 2 things. The image inverter or the LCD. From the description it could be either.

Both can be found here:

The inverter is fairly cheap ($20 to $50) the LCD around $150.

Unfortunately this usually is an LCD screen or cable problem and could just be coincidence. You CAN revert to a previous BIOS version, but I am not aware of a way to get one.
