    Unhappy White vertical line
    I have an imac about 2 1/2 years old. There is a white vertical line about 1" wide through the middle of the screen. It would slowly disappear after awhile. Now it is there permanently. Do I need a new screen? New video card?? How much is a new screen/video card?Help!

    that sounds like a screen issue.

    do you have any sort of external monitor you can hook up in any way - that's a sure way to test vid card vs monitor.

    well, either way, it'll have to go in for repairs unless you're able/willing to get parts and repair it yourself...

    i can't imagine what it might cost. it probaby won't be cheap.
