For some unknown reason, there has suddenly appeared a one inch wide black band down the right hand side of my laptop screen and the taskbar at the bottom has almost disappeared off screen.
is this something I have done or is it a sign that something more serious is happening please?

Test with an external monitor. If all is good then I'd guess it's a problem with the screen if it's there on the external one then it's GPU related. If you have a warranty, call Acer about this.
