Hp monitor has vertical yellow line. Is this dead
Unfortunately, your display problem is not repairable, except by replacing the display panel itself. What's happened is that something in the electronics built in to the display panel has failed, and it's keeping that column of pixels stuck on all the time. There isn't any way to get at those electronics to repair them, so the only cure is a new display.
This kind of defect would be something that the manufacturer would fix if the monitor was still under warranty. Yours is probably out of warranty, but it can't hurt to check your owner's manual or the HP website, and see if there's any hope. If your monitor is past any warranty, it's time to look for a replacement.
I wish I had a more positive answer. Thanks for using Fixya anyway!
