Horizontal line appeared across the screen

I looked at the screenshot on my phone and couldn’t see the line.
/etc/X11/mhwd.d/ is empty.

Tried this, but the screen got very shaky.

EDIT Oh, and I also booted from a live USB. The line was still there.

How can I ascertain whether I need a new monitor?

You already did.
