I have a similar problem on a Dell 9200 Inspiron with a 17-inch 1440x900 LCD. Apparently this is a known issue for Dell and they have extended the warranties to cover this for free. I just got off the phone with them and they're fixing my for free. Call them.

It is showing a permanent white and a blue line vertically on screen

Around here, "previously-owned" 17-inch LCD monitors are available for $50. If you take your monitor to a TV/video technician, it will cost *MORE* than $50 for "labour" by the technician to trouble-shoot.

Buy a replacement monitor, and responsibly recycle the old monitor.

There are white lines running vertically through my screen. on the sides the monitor shows the windows


The vertical lines could be caused by the Graphics card/Motherboard or the LCD screen itself. Try to unplug the LCD cable at the tower and look for the self test feature that will be displayed on the LCD screen. If the screen is good it means the Graphics card is faulty (if expansion) or Motherboard (if integrated).

Hope this helps.

Screen turned black

your monitor got a hardware problem:
1) the LVDS controler board out of work, only change or repair it could be fixed.
2) if you can see some show like smaller signal detect windows in the centre of screen a very short time (bright flashing one time), this is inverter board damaged or worn lamps, thay all need repair or replace
