Default Monitor has a blue line! Help!

My monitor has a blue line on it. I was wondering if it's due to my video card. How do I fix this? Thanks!

It could be a sign of a failing video card. What monitor and video card are you using?

Is it an LCD, CRT, plasma, DLP, or something else?

Dang, that's an oldie. Do you see the blue line at all times? Like during booting or running Windows.

Lol, yeah really old. And I run Linux Ubuntu 10.04, but it happened when I had Windows XP. It only shows up like in black areas and dark areas.
