Vertical white line appeared on display.

Jump to solution

On my Dell Studio 1749 a vertical white line has appeared about 3 inches in from the left hand side.  It started off about 1mm wide but is gradually increasing in width and is now about 4mm wide.  There is no problem on an external monitor when connected.

Is this likely to be a fault with the panel or a chip problem?

Thank you.

Hi  Ian,

This could be an issue with the LCD. To isolate the issue follow below steps:

  • Check if the vertical lines appear in BIOS screen (Restart the computer and tap F2 on Dell logo).
  • Also restart the computer and check the display in Safe mode (Restart the computer and press F8 on Dell logo and select Safe mode)
  • Run the diagnostics on the computer (Restart the computer by holding the” D” and power button and wait till the LCD test completes) and let me know the test result for LCD.

Awaiting your response!

Thanks & Regards
Rajesh R

Hi Rajeesh,

The line is still there in the BIOS screen.

The line is still there in Safe Mode.

In the LCD test the white line is visible in every colour.

Thanks,

Ian
