As of about 1 hour ago, my Dell 20.5" monitor has a 2" vertical red bar on the screen.

It is a 4 year old LCD. Does this mean the monitor is effectively ruined or is this something that can be fixed somehow?

There may be a loose connection in the LCD that is causing this, but chance are that it is toast...

I did check the connections, so unfort. it doesn't seem to be the case. –  user27449 Jul 1 '10 at 22:32
