white line on screen

  • After starting up my Latitude today a thin white vertical line now appears across the screen. Re-booted and its still there on top of whatever window is active.

    I recently had to re-install XP in an attempt to cure some other weird behavior...when online I couldn't load web pages, constant screen freezing & system crashes. Seemed ok after os re-install and update of video driver. But a few days later this new glitch.

    Any suggestions welcomed...

  • if the line goes away if you move cover (as if you were going to close the laptop) back or forward, then the lcd cable is wearing out.  I had that issue with a latitude recently.  Fortunately it had complete care and they replaced the cable and panel.
