Question about Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook

1 Answer

Screen flickers and goes stripey

Screen started to have some white lines across, that disappeared when I moved the screen. problem got worse as time went on, today the screen showed double images and computer did not react to mouse / pad. when finally I found a correct angle of the screen and fixed in place, the laptop went back to normal, and I backed all my stuff up quickly.

Could that be a problem with the connection between screen and whatever it's connected to inside? like a broken cable that shorts out and confuses the poor thing?

Aspire 5100 laptop White line appear across screen. when you adjust the screen or bend it slightly they will disappear. took apart screen and there are no loose connections. Any ideas?


It's usually the lcd cable. It has a short so when you move the screen back and forth you're "fixing" it.

Best thing to do is just look up the part number on the lcd wire and buy a replacement one on ebay. If that doesn't fix the problem it's the lcd, but based on what you've described all signs point to lcd cable.

This is most likely either a.) the connection to the LCD is falling out or b.) the screen itself is going bad.

If you feel comfortable to tackle this job you can buy the LCD to replace:

Be sure to double check with the company to make sure that this screen will work with your notebook.

If you computer is still under warranty or maybe you purchased an extended warranty the manufacturer might cover replacement of the LCD.

Gateway laptop vertical dotted lines across the screen


Sounds like a problem with the LCD assembly or cable. You may want to reseat the LCD cable at the LCD end. It could be a loose internal connector in the LCD assembly.

Red vertical lines appear, can only run computer in Safe Mode


check the video cable and see if it;s properly seated. run the laptop with something that uses memory. if the video chip it going to show signs of problems, it will be more prominent when the laptop gets hot. most cases laptop motherboards have integrated video cards and cannot be replaced.

Display getting distorted and goes white blank at times


It could be a problem with an internal connection. A quick test and perhaps even fix would be to grasp the right and left sides of your display while it is on (displaying the offensive lines) and gently twist like you were wringing out a towel. Again, and I emphasize, gently using only a couple of ounces of force. Watch to see if the lines disappear, get worse of make the screen flash or change. If you do then its likely cause is the connector from the LCD panel to the electronics has oxidation or a loose connection. If you?re lucky the flexing might even fix your problem, if not you will have to take it apart to find out exactly what is going on.
