Hi there, a freind of mines laptop has just encountered this problem. She has an Acer Aspire 1682WLMI but just recently, the 15.4 inch screen has developed a vertical red line down the right hand side. Any ideas as to how to solve this please?

Hi. I had this problem a while ago, turned out to be the screen itself.Possibly could be a graphics problem, but more likely to be a duff screen. If its not in warranty I am sorry but looks like its a new one if its unusable.

Hi Heepster, thanks for the response, how did you solve it and did it cost much? To be honest, I was always having a go at her for not cleaning the screen and keyboard properly, not carrying the laptop in its' proper bag, etc.

Even so I hope that this can be solved quicky and cheaply.

Mine was way out of warranty so I purchased a new one, and let my 5 year old have the original.You could always check out the graphics chip, maybe thats the problem with yours.Going to be expensive either way..Sorry.
