Hi, the issue may with the LCD panel. I work in DELL and have been getting lot of issues like this. It's called vertical line defects.. You can connect and external monitor and press Fn and F8 to toggle the display over to the Monitor. If the display is fine, replace the LCD screen. If the system is under wrranty, call Dell tech support and get a replacement or else call 800-288-4410 (out of warranty repair) department to send your laptop for repair. If the display is the same on the monitor, then the video card/Motherboard has to be replaced.
