A vertical blue line has appeared on my laptop screen, any ideas what might be causing this ?.

reinstall your graphics drivers.

Reinstalled graphics drivers - line still there.

Icould be a fault in the screen - the cable that connects the screen to the base, or the graphics chip.

When you move the lid up and down, does tha fault change? - get it nearly closed and look carefully inside the gap.

Moved lid up and down, line stays there.

Well - it'll be one out of the three - probably not the graphics chip. The system will almost certainly need to be investigated by a technician to find which, as it will involve some dismantling.
