maybe theres something wrong with screen configuration, was that problem already there when you bought the laptop? You might just want to send your laptop back if oyu still have warranty

You could try opening it up and re-seating the video cable.
But nothing lasts forever. It may just be broken. Talk with the Acer to see what the cost of fixing/replacing it may be.

I should have gave more details. It's an Acer Asper Model 5610-4534 running Vista. A little long in the tooth.

The LCD is a 15.4 inch WXGA CrystalBrite whatever that means. The video cable inside has no damage or fraying. I connected the laptop to a TV and the screen on the TV did not show the black part. I did have 1 quote to replace the LCD but it would cost more than the laptop is worth. Mite be time to anchor it to the bottom of the sea after stripping out the 160GB HD & RAM. The DVD player works fine.
