AW2518H, strange issues, #2

I have a similar problem, it randomly start to appear color lines every once in a while and sometimes a line would just stay and the only way to get rid of it is to turn off and on the monitor, I tried disconnecting the HDMI but the line stays so I know its not the GPU. I've only been with it for 3 days and it's already giving me problem.... I contacted the seller and I'm currently waiting for a reply to return it, unless there is a fix Smiley Sad
