Is it a trinitron monitor?

Oh, and Welcome to WebmasterWorld! [webmasterworld.com]

If this is a flat-panel, you'll need a new monitor. I saw the same thing happen to an LCD, but it was a red single-pixel line.

Thanks for your welcome and for responding!

I am not sure what a triniton monitor is?
I have a Vaio PCV-w2 (http://vaio.sony-europe.com/ShowProduct.do?site=ite_en_GB&category=VD+W+Series&product=PCV-W2)

The entire pc is one unit, the machine is attached to the back of the monitor and the keyboard attached to the monitor too.
any ideaS?

If your machine is under warranty, you'd be well-advised to contact Sony support.

*Sigh* unfortunately not, its second hand and was brought as part of a charity donation. Thus I can't even register with Sony Support because the serial number is not registered with them.
Do you think a local pc repair place could mend the problem?

ANyway, thanks for your replies in my time of ..erm, need! :)

I have a 21" trinitron that occasionally places 1 pixel red dots in a verticle line down one side of the screen. Thing is, they come and go. Been doing it for a few months now. Very strange.

By the way... Welcome!

That's a very interesting computer. It's a different approach to computers. I could see an application for it in a environment like a library where you just need simple computers with no reason to ever add cards or anything. I think I would personally avoid it for just the reason you've got... one thing breaks and the thing is toast. It would probably cost more to repair it than you gave for it. Oh well, since it's not under warrantee, I guess you've got to live with the line until you can find a suitable resolution. Best of luck!
