Default Problem with laptop screen

I have a Toshiba Satelliate A85-S1072 and the screen is acting weird. The majority of the screen works fine. However, on the left side there is a dark stripe from top to bottom of the screen. I can still see what is on the screen but it is extra dark. I am wanting to know if anyone has had this problem before. My daughter knocked it only the floor and it started doing this afterwards. I've tried to do a screen print to see if it was coming from the desktop but there isn't a dark spot there. It seems to be coming from the display itself.

Default Re: Problem with laptop screen

It is the display. The pixels on that line are dead. There is nothing you can do about it except replace the screen. (I believe)

I am not sure though, maybe somebody else knows a way out of it.
