Dell Inspiron 1520 with Vertical Line

By bshaffer300 ·
I have a Dell Inspiron 1520 laptop. Tonight after using it, a vertical line appeared down the center of the LCD screen. Any ideas what this may be or how to fix this issue?

I know Dell has had Vertical Line Issues with their LCD's.

This could be a problem with the monitor. If you have another old computer laying around try plugging it into it and if the while line still is there then it is a fault with the monitor.

Since I have no knowledge of monitors if this is the case i would say replace it, but others may have more knowledge to the problem.

Let me know how you go if you can try it on another computer

I hooked up an external LCD and it worked fine, no vertical line.
Dell will not acknowledge my problem. They say that they have had no LCD problems with this model. I raise my hand !!! I have a problem.
I know that they have had past vertical line issues in the past.

If you are still under warranty, keep sticking your hand up and make them replace it or fix the error. If not under warranty you should prob look for a new monitor as i dont know if an issue like that can be fixed.

You can also just put up with it :) your choice
