    After I closed a website I was visiting I notice that part of the website design, i.e. a green vertical line, has been left on my monitor display. I have restarted my computer several times but the line remains as part of the display whatever website or programme is running. Any suggestions on how to remove this line would be appreciated.

    this worked for me, it might for you if it is an lcd flat screen, I very gently twisted the screen and the lines went away. :)

    Thanks for your reply. I'm afraid no luck with my attempt at twisting.

    Many thanks for your advice. The line shows on the screen when I run a programme but not in the moments when the screen is blank. I have tried PrtScn and the line shows on the Paint image. I will contact the monitor manufacturer to see if they can offer any possible solutions. I will also attempt to reinstall drivers. So after several years of trouble-free use I suddenly have to become an instant computer expert. Not easy.
    Your advice much appreciated.
