vertical line on screen

My Mac has a vertical line on my screen, up and down, about 1/3 left. The line is very small but clearly visible.

Any solution? Thank you.



Might be a good time to run the Apple Hardware Test

  • Satellite Pro A10 - 3mm thickness vertical line on screen

    I have a thick vertical line of 3mm on the screen seems to come up in colors, it generally moved to gray.

    The display was damaged - or is this some sort of driver problem.


    It looks like a hardware malfunction. UPS may be a FL. But I m not 100% sure.
    What you can do? Well, if it's really a hardware fault so the only way is to contact Toshiba service. But it could also be a strange software problem. In this case, the best way is to recover the operating system and/or update the graphics driver. You can also check your BIOS version. If there is a newer version, then try to upgrade the version of the BIOS.
    But if the material is broken, then contact ASP.

  • Green vertical line on screen - Satellite P30 Pro

    A single thin green vertical line appeared about a sixth of the way across the screen. It works up and down continuously and immediately displays the screen is activated.

    I presume that this indicates a hardware failure - can anyone confirm please? Guess I'm interested in large bills?

    Hi Ian

    How is - someone must provide an exactly fault diagnosis without putting the hand on this laptop?
    Here, we can suggest and discuss only!

    If she really looks like a hardware problem, but the question is; What s wrong.
    In my opinion, you must connect the external monitor to the laptop. Check if the same vertical line appears on the second screen!

    If Yes, then the chances are high that the graphics card is broken! This could be a case value because the GPU is soldered on the Board and the entire motherboard must be replaced to solve this problem.


  • Vertical lines on screen

    Can someone help me?

    I have vertical lines on my screen, all the time.
    How can I remove it?

    Thank you.

    To remove them is not so easy because you don't know why they are there.
    The lines can be displayed with the defective display or defective graphics card.
    If possible, connect your laptop to external monitor and check if the same will be shown.

    If the lines are displayed on the external screen, the graphics card is defective and the entire motherboard must be exchanged. :(

  • Vertical line on screen S1216 L25

    I have a single vertical line on my screen. Anyone know how to fix this? It has been published recently. There are no other significant problems.


    I agree with James. Check if the same product with an external monitor. In any case, it's probably a malfunction of the equipment.

  • Vertical lines on screen - Equium A100

    In the past two weeks a vertical line has been appearing every now and then towards the end of the right side of the screen (from top to bottom) on my A100-147 and I'm a little concerned as to why this is.

    Can someone help and tell me what the problem is please?

    It s not dull if there line horizontal or vertical s.
    Fact is that this show is displayed if there is a hardware problem.

    How to find what's wrong?

    You could connect the second external monitor to the laptop and could check whether the same appears on the external monitor.
    If yes then-> I assume that it s a GPU malfunction
    If not-> then the screen itself could be faulty

    In both cases, the replacement is necessary and could be costly!

  • Vertical lines on screen - Qosmio F10

    I need assistance with vertical lines on my screen.
    It began before the period of one month, and I don't know what to do.
    Now, I work in SafeMode because Windows XP used to operate normally.

    The service where I bought it, they say I have to buy the new motherboard because the graphics card is integrated on the motherboard and graphics card loses contact with the motherboard.

    Now I should spend about 900 to buy the new card mother and graphics card, but it is stupid because I bought new Toshiba before 2 years for 2,000 and now does not work normally.
    Does anyone has a good idea how to fix it or some pages where I can find parts for my Qosmio? It is easier to say that someone to spend 900 to fix.
    Where are now best Toshiba notebook that everyone talks about.

    Help, please.

    Kind regards


    I can really understand you and of course it s very stupid situation, but I guess that the guys of ASP are right and this problem really looks like a graphics card problem.
    The vertical lines on the screen are very typical for a malfunction of the graphics card.

    So I see really no other possibility as to replace the motherboard.
    Maybe you can buy one second hand and it could be a little cheaper.

    PS: I bought an extended warranty with my new laptop and I recommend to all this extension because a hardware malfunction can always happen.

  • Opaque vertical lines in screen of magnetic cover?

    The vertical lines that cannot be rubbed off on the touch screen that is protective of the installed screen corresponding perfectly to the tapes in the protective cover HP. Permanent?

    Hi, I too have the same order of ideas on my Touchpad, but mine will clean the with a micro cloth for glasses.

    If you look closely at each line aligns with the creases on your cover. When the lid is closed and you look lower or higher, you can see a gap corresponding to each trick. The dust gets in and builds up on the screen along this gap.

    I did not have a screen saver but have coverage.  Dust adheres to the surface of your screensaver?

    only thing that makes sense... you could probably pull up the nearest corner of the 'line' and look below...

    Kind regards


  • Why am I a thin blue vertical line on screen?

    Why am I a thin blue vertical line on the screen of my PrecisionM4800

    .? Is there problem with Video card?

    Hello Karthi.SK44,

    Thanks for writing on the Dell Community Forum.

    I suggest you to test the display on the external monitor to confirm if the screen is bad on external monitor while the motherboard is faulty.

    Then run LCD BIST (built-in self-test) on the system to shut down the system, then press and hold the power button. Then put on the system where, in solid colors will be visible on the system. If the line is visible during the test, then the screen is defective.

    If these two tests pass and then make sure that the system ins safe mode with network to eliminate the operating system.

    I hope this helps. If there are questions more respond to this message.

    Nice day!

    Sincere greetings,

    Hi André,.

    Welcome to the Microsoft community where you can find all the answers related to windows.

    This issue could be the settings with the monitor or screen discs has been corrupted.

    I suggest to start the computer in safe mode and check if the problem persists.

    In safe mode will have reduced functionality, but the task of isolating problems is easier because many non-core components are disabled readers even display.

    Start your computer in safe mode:

    If the problem does not persist in safe mode, and then perform a clean boot in order to check if any third-party application is causing the problem, as the clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    See the following Microsoft article:

    How to solve the problem by running the clean boot in Windows:
    Note: Once you have completed troubleshooting, perform the steps in the step 3: to reset the computer as usual.

    If you are able to boot into normal mode, with success, then I suggest you download and install the latest driver for the display driver.

    Update a hardware driver that is not working properly: ' t-work properly

  • Black vertical line on screen

    My Dell laptop has a black vertical band that is approximately 1 inch wide that appears and then disappears near the area of the Start button.  It goes off the left side of the screen.

    Please notify.

    Connect an external monitor - if the fault does not show, it's the Billboard that is bad - you will need a new.

    If it appears to the outside, you have a bad video chip or card - replace the card mother or video card, depending on your system has.
