    Yesterday I watched a movie on my computer and everyithing was great. Tommorow I turn on my PC and find a strange vertical stripe on my display.
    The stripe is on the middle of the screen and is about 1 pixel wide. It goes form top to the bottom all the way. Oh and it's dotted.

    First I thought it was Windows so I restarted the PC. But found the line again. :wallbash:
    Then I detached the DVI cable from my PC (to exclude PC/video card problem) and there it is again.

    The display is Samsung SyncMaster 2233BW and is less than a year old.
    It's still under warranty so I'll get it fixed but thought I ask first in the forums if someone got similar problems with Samsung displays or even with the same display.

    So the best thing to know would be if it can be fixed under warranty or should I buy a new display

    If its happening when disconnected from a video source then something is wrong with the device. Try powering the monitor off entirely (unplug it from the mains) and where possible do a factory reset of the options just to rule everything out.
    If still not working a warranty repair is going to be the cheapest option rather than buying a whole new unit imo.

    Less than 12 months old they should replace it under warranty - it sounds like a whole row of pixels has died on you... :(

    Thanks for replies. Well it seems I'll have to go and have it fixed. I just hoped there was an easier way as I have bad experience with repairs of electronic equipment.
