Either:

a) The monitor is fucked (dodgy connection)
b) Someone's snuck in and drawn it on with a pen
c) The monitor has divided itself into love and hate. Which ever is the bigger portion will tell you the general disposition of the monitor.

if you apply pressure to it does the line go away? if so then there is just a bad connection between the screen and the monitors internal hardware. hopefully its still under warranty so you can get it replaced. if not go to newegg.com or tigerdirect.com they usually have some pretty good deals.

No it does not go away with pressure. It once went away when I did a restart. It's been back ever since

Classic case of a dodgy connection in the screen itself (that is what I meant when I said dodgy connection, not the plugs at the back, sorry )

Possibly, do u no if its still under warranty? Id say get it checked out at a local electrical goods repair place, just be wary not to pay an arm and a leg for wat could be a small problem..
