I have an Inspiron 8100 which I purchased new about 2.5 years ago. It has
always worked well, but I noticed today that there was a line vertical going
from the top of the screen to the bottom. It's not all that noticeable
except when the background is certain colors. Is this the same thing as dead
pixels? The laptop has seen very little use and still looks brand new. It is
not under warranty. Will it get worse, go away, etc?

Thanks

Are you still under any sort of warranty?
