    Yes I did test it on a different monitor and the vertical lines are gone. Thats not the question what i want to know is what is exactly wrong with my 20 inch lcd is it the inverter, logic board or screen? or could the ribbon have come loose.

    Does your display look something like this:
    That discussion:

    ended with him replacing his Mobo to fix the problem.

    When you did your check, did you also change the VGA cable, and how long did you test it with a different monitor? Reason we're asking is because Overheating of your MOBO, Vid card, or monitor all can cause this, also a bad signal from from the VGA cable.

    IF it is your monitor it MAY cost you more to repair it than replacing it would.
    They say technology slows down for no one. I know it outruns my wallet. I figure its because my wallet isn't light enough yet.

    If you replaced your monitor and there weren't any lines then you are right in saying that it is the monitor. There could be a crooked or damaged pin connecting to the monitor, it coould be the cable connecting. Are you using DVI or VGA. I've seen brown lines, red lines, green lines, etc. from DELL's at work. Since they are under warranty, we just replace them. Sometimes the third replacement is the charm. Is it still under warranty?

    Sometimes it comes from the DVI to VGA connector we use too. Again...those are bent or damaged pins though.

    what about it being the graphics card? .. i would look into that like others have said, it might not just be that the pin is bent, it could be something "inside" the card

    Touch the LCD

    I just recently had the same problem: A green line, 1px wide, from top to bottom of the monitor.

    I read somewhere (lost the link), that it doesn't have to be the graphics card nor the mainboard or cables. The (unbelievable) tip that I got was to GENTLY touch the spot where the line is.

    I did that and just touched the monitor above the viewing area. It worked. The line disappeared, and didn't return. Of course that doesn't have to be the solution, but it worked in my case.

    Hope it helps!
