As the tittle suggests, my display screen on my laptop is divided into two sections by a vertical strip of colored bars. It seems to have duplicated my screen without showing the full resolution of my display, so that I am not able to see the other end.
I've read this may be due to a video card issue, and it may have given up the ghost. I just find it odd that it happened so suddenly after having no troubles with it all day. I hooked it up to an external monitor and the stripe was gone on the external, but still present on the laptop.
I'm kind of tight for cash right now, and if there are any alternative routes that I can investigate that someone has tried before, I would appreciate any help given.
Here are some photos to illustrate the problem:
