Vertical Lines Display - Recovery shows setup not complete

I have a Qosmio G35-AV650. It has vertical lines on the display. It recently had a video chip replaced about two months ago (I found that out after I bought it used, was told it was barely used and did not have any problems).

Anyway, it started with the vertical lines on the screen and was told to try recovering the system with the recovery disks. They would load in and seemed to be recovering all the way until it reboots, then comes up with a black screen. Going into safe mode shows that setup was not complete, run setup again.

I tried loading XP Pro with the Toshiba raid drivers slipstreamed into it, and I can get it to load fully this time but still has bad vertical lines in the display. If I try updating the drivers from Toshiba with the nvidea GeForce 7600 drivers, the screen comes up black when booting into Windows normally. I have to go back to safe mode and uninstall the nvidea to get the screen to come up again when loading Windows normally....still bad display though.

I tried again to use the recovery disks so I can get all drivers in there for wi-fi, etc., but it will not load...same thing, black screen when loading normally and then saying setup not complete in safe mode.

As per my experience, the problem is not because of your Video Card/Driver. Such a problem arises due to faulty RAM. Change your RAM and enjoy computing.

Display has vertical white lines. Hook up a external flat screen and it works fine . Toshib Qosmio g25


this indicates you have a bad screen, and if you press around on the back (top) of the computer display the lines will disappear until you take your hands off the area effected, and the screen needs to be replaced.

Qosmio G35 full restore


The recovery disk provided when purchased are FAIL. You have to purchase working disk from Toshiba for 30.00 plus shipping. I think this is bogus but they won't budge.

Recovery


Windows XP does have RAID drivers, but it really doesn't have anything to do with this problem. Try a bios flash with either updated bios version, if any, or the original bios. Your problem is much deeper that a hard drive or operating system. Your problem is in the motherboard, if the bios flash doesn't do it, then the motherboard may need to be replaced. Take it to a tech and have them run down the exact problem.

Vertical lines in my laptop screen


My understanding is that you have 2 laptops with the same problem, if that is the case, you need to replace the lcd. When you have lines on lcd's, that is a sign of a bad lcd.
