Alright, first off, please use sentences. Thank you. Giant run on sentences without any punctuation really makes it hard to figure out what you are saying.

second, is this the laptop or external monitor you are talking about?

third, is this line appearing when the screen is turned off? Meaning no power is being put through the screen, not meaning there is no image source.

Sorry, It is a laptop. The line is on my screen when my laptop is turned on. Is the best option just to take it back to office max and get it checked out?

If the line does not persist on an external monitor, then the problem is either the display (more likely if carried around or dropped), or the cable connecting it to the GPU (Almost impossible if laptop is kept open as desktop replacement). In either case, it would require a significant amount of work to replace the part.

What is your current laptop model and specs?
