Yes, it sounds like the LCD is screwed, i've had this line develop on both an old HD TV and netbook of mine.

The TV one was intermittent, sometimes would disappear, but overtime got worse and stayed there permanently.

The netbook one was due to closing the lid down too hard, over time, it spread from exactly the halfway point of the screen to the very left, leaving me with only the right half screen visible.

I think you need a screen replacement because it sounds more hardware related than anything.

Thanks for the suggestion. Regrettably I don't have another monitor I can try so I can't say if the problem is with the display itself or with the graphics card.

Hi Glenn, the stripe isn't opaque, it's just that section of the screen is paler than the rest. It's still usable atm, but it's really annoying :(
