Black dotted line on monitor

\015 Dell inspiron E1505 laptop. skinny black dotted line on bottom of the screen. the line is growing. when i noticed it first time,the length was maybe 1 inch but over the past few days it has grown to about 4 inches. it seems to be located between the screen and the display. in other words i cant touch it , and i can see my mouse pointer underneath the black dots. it is partially covering the display of time, and other icons there. i am worried since it seems to be getting bigger... will it eventually block my whole screen? \015\012this dotted line is very dense in dots-- almost like someone had scribbled with black ink. when i 'press' against the screen with my finger the little dots sort of move.its wierd. \015\012any ideas???\015
