    laptop developed a Blue vertical line on the screen that is always there!
    It is about 1 1/2 inches wide, and a fairly solid blue. Nice clean edges,
    a streak that appears from the moment I boot up. So, I see it as the
    Windows logo appears, and it stays all the time!
    The computer works perfectly, but this solid blue vertical simply stays! Any
    I have run all the diagnostics bundled with it, all the various Symantec
    diagnostics that are a part of Norton System works, checked the Device
    Manager for the video card. All say that everything is working properly!
    If you have an idea, let me know. If not, any advice of where to post for a
    solution? It's a Toshiba Satellite A70 (PSA70C-ML100E), and I can't find a
    solution on the Toshiba site either.

    Is the line part of the background or wallpaper and is it 'always on
    top'? Try changing these two around in Display Properties.

    If this stripe is 'hiding' what should be displayed, then I would suspect a
    problem with the wiring that controls the screen. LCDs are easily damaged.
