weird vertical line true screen.
 
Today suddenly a green line appeared on my samsung 206BW. First I thought it might be an artifact due graka overclocking or so but after I reseted my graka settings and turned of my PC for a while the green line stayed there.
So next step was to find out if it wasnt the monitor. So I switched monitor with my 2nd 206BW and that one didnt seem to have the problem.
Now it looks to me this is clearly a monitor issue, but the weird thing is that the line isnt static. its always some green pixels on the same vertical coordinate of my screen but they move. Also they only show up in games, movies or gif images (banners etc). Did a death pixel test and the green line showed up at non of the testcolors. Also not a single death pixel in this monitor. Anyone happen to know what this might be? Want some external input before I contact samsung for warranty.

overdrive is something your display does to decrease the transition times. Might be hidden somewhere in the OSD of your monitor.
Did you test the (faulty) monitor on another computer ?
