The line is caused by the traces going bad in the video cable going from the LCD the the main board. They where out over time from the cable having to flex from opening and closing the lid. It will only get worse over time. You can get a new cable off of ebay for arounf $25.00. Depending on the laptop, depends on how hard it is to replace. I have done it many times.

I checked ebay and they are reletively cheap. $15-$20 dollars. One end goes to the back of the lcd, the other end (two connections)one to the mainboard the other to the inverter. Good luck!!

This problem occurs because of heating the graphix card.
shut down ur lappy and see.
otherwise remove RAM from ur lappy and clean it.
