Thin red line in middle of laptop screen

My laptop has developed a thin red line on the screen when the lid is at a certain angle. Can anyone advise what might be wrong please

Hi, you are not alone, click here I have had a quick look through Google, but no-one seems to have an answer.

Make and model of your laptop?

It's a Medion from Aldi. Been really pleased with it to date as well.

It'll probably be a fault (or a bad connection) in the cable from the base up to the lid.

Either a problem with the screen itself or with the graphics controller. Whichever it is, it's very unlikely to be user repairable.
