What is this line on my monitor?



Anyone have any idea what might be causing that black line? I first noticed it tonight, and it certainly wasnt there yesterday, or even this morning probably. It shows up no matter what window I have up. I can extend my taskbar up and that's the only time it dissapears. Some issue with the video card maybe?

Asus A7N266-VM
Athlon XP 1700+
256 megs PC2100 ram
GeForce 2 GTS 32 meg (yeah, I need a new one )
using the sound that is built into the MB.
