Dotted vertical line on laptop screen?


I have a Dell Inspiron 14 7437 laptop that I got about 2 years ago.

It was not like this when I first got it, but it now has a dotted vertical line on the laptop screen.

The line does not affect performance at all, it's just an annoyance thing. The touchscreen still works and everything still works. Laptop is still like new, but just that line is there.

I have attached a picture with an arrow pointing to the line.

What could be the issue to this and how can I fix it?

Thank you!

Please connect an external monitor and check if the line is displayed on it.
