pink line on my new monitor?!?

About two weeks back I purchased a new hp w2207h monitor from After a couple days, a thin vertical pink line appeared on the left/middle side of the screen. It now appears whenever the computer is on, however for short moments (5-10 minutes) it will dissapear and the normal colors will be present. Sometimes the line will turn grey. Is this a result of dead pixels, my connection, or something else?

Unlikely to be dead pixels. Can you borrow another monitor to eliminate your computer/graphics card/connecting lead from the problem? Or can you connect the monitor to another computer for the same reason. It sounds like a back to the supplier job to me.
