I have a 5 year old thinkpad which has suddenly developed a horizontal line across the screen. The pixels on the line look 'slow' ie. they change colour only after a while and that too not consistently. The graphics look like they're pulled across the screen and spread where the line is. I ignored this for a while but the number of such lines have increased and I now have a 'band' about 0.25cm high obscuring part of my screen.
Is this repairable or do I have to change my LCD? If the latter, I think I'll spring for a new laptop rather than try to fix this one.
If you need details, please let know.
