    If it's a loose connection at the panel you might get lucky and be able to
    fix it by wedging something in on top of the ribbon that connects the driver
    to the panel but generally it's very hard or impossible to repair these
    things.

    Try flipping the computers resolution setting to see if the line moves.
    If it does, chances are you have a dead row in the video RAM.
