    For some reason a vertical green line has appeared on my screen. I haven't had any problems at all with this display and the only thing that i can possible connect it to would be all these kernel attacks that i've been receieving sense i installed Tiger.

    I'm not sure what this thing is and to be honest i'm a little worried by it. (This screen is expensive....)

    Any ideas?

    That's more likely to be a hardware problem than OS. That machine of yours should be under warranty still -- get thee to a service centre....

    I hate to say this, but I have to. Unfortunately, (and I still could be wrong), I believe the green line indicates potential dead pixels. My wife has the same problem with her iBook--the green line comes and goes. I don't think there is anything that you can do other than send it back if it's under warranty or what not. Best luck to ya.
