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...

Re: white line on screen

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.
