If the connection is bad then the voltage can lower hence the line. IIRC the "ribbon" type edge connection works in lines.

I had an Acer a few years ago that developed lines. When I took it apart I found that if I applied pressure to the edge the lines vanished. However as I said, it's not repairable. Not by any means I know of any way. I found my Acer had actually rusted inside due to the immense humidity in the room over summer (BITD with a GTX 280 and a hot pre 80+ PSU).

If it were more sporadic I'd suspect something else, but the fact it's in a perfect line kinda rings alarm bells for me.
