    I have a vertical column of dead pixels (locked yellow) that has suddenly
    appeared on my laptop LCD.

    It is not a problem with the LCD itself or the video card because they are
    not visible during the BIOS stage of the boot, or the Windows boot menu.

    I have checked the Windows Update history and there were no autmatic updates
    applied over the night that this occurred.

    I have uninstalled the video card driver, but the column is still visible
    using the generic VGA driver.

    If I set the resolution to somethign below native (eg. 1024x768) the yellow
    line is only visible over the image area, and not the black surronds - again
    demonstrating that it is a software not a hardware problem.

    Does anybody have any suggestions about how I can try and fix this?
