No need to increase the font size for your entire post as that's rather annoying.

My suggestion though, is to call Lenovo for support. If you've only had it 3 days, their warranty should cover it.

I think your laptop screen has problem with its picture tube that why it's shows the black horizontal line. New installation of drivers also couldn't work to fix the problem. Better you should contact repair center.

The laptop does not have a picture tube but this is a very common problem with LCD screens, and it's a problem with the panel itself, whether a manufacturing defect or just the effect of usage is arguable. If it's under warranty I'd get it looked at. To be sure it's really the screen hookup the video output to an external monitor if you can.
