Default sidebar blue line

Ive recently bought a new laptop, it has vista on it.

i watch films and play games.

so it was a great annoyance when i went to watch a film and this blue line is here! its even there durring startup, the first thing on the screen when i turn the laptop on, even during the WINDOWS loading screen bit! please help.

it has something to do with the sidebar, i remove it and it stays there. i put the sidebar up,and its just the border of the sidebar.
how can i get rid of it?

I've just noticed it doesn't appear in the screenshot i took.

but its basically a thin blue line, exactly where the sidebar border is. even though the sidebar isnt there, and it shows up above every window, even internet.

You may disagree but have you considered taking/sending it back to the manufacturer and demanding a refund or replacement?

For others who might search upon this thread.

Unfortunatly that is ALL i can do. Apparently its a very rare problem where a dead pixel in the monitor somehow creats a thin blue line down the screen, it can't be repaired and i think the only way to fix it is using your warranty, which is what im going to do this sunday.

Hope this helps for anybody else who has this problem, but its meant to be rare. Lucky me.
