I think my laptop has reached its age (3+ years)

I woke up this morning to a white/light grey line in my screen.. the laptop has be stationary for over 6 months (since the battery doesn't hold charge anymore)

But! When I move items arround on the screen over the vertical line does respond!

I can still see images if i pass them over the vertical like (eg my mouse/icons)

It look's like its 2 pixels thick and just low on light..

Any suggestions?

P.s. I heard of some software that removes dead pixels? Should I use this? ( I think the software just changes the full screen color. eg. red. yellow. blue, white.black.... .. etc. etc.. like a screensaver of a solid colors rotating)
