Toshiba has a screen rotate utility. Try hitting Ctrl + Alt + Up Arrow on the keyboard.

Ctrl + Alt + Left Arrow or Right Arrow may work also.

I have Toshiba SATELLITE P105-S6197 Laptop and suddenly a horizontal while/grey lines appeared as a strip and after windows login it appears as a black strip at right side

Sounds like a bad screen. The easiest way to verify that would be to attach this to an external monitor (at work, a friend's ... if you ain't got one) - if the external monitor apprears good then you've pretty much iso'd the problem to your laptop's screen. This model uses a 17" widescreen. Best place to buy 'em would be on eBay, and they'll usually run around $90 to $100 if you need one right away - half that amount if you've got time and patience :-)

Buens noches..tengo un monitor DELL2005FPW 20.1

Creo que tienen capas superpuestas de la misma imagen en su monitor. Prueba a revisar los cables doblados o dañados. Ver si hay dispositivos electromagnéticos cerca del monitor. Por una vez, intenta huir de la liberación de la energía de la pantalla. Para ello, desconecte el cable de alimentación del monitor y presione el botón de encendido en el monitor durante unos 15 segundos. Usted puede también intentar el control de la imagen en modo seguro de "Windows". si la imagen está muy bien allí, es necesario volver a instalar / actualizar los controladores de vídeo.

ENGLISH: I think you are having overlapping layers of same image on your monitor. Try checking the cables for bent or damaged pins. See if there are any electromagnetic devices near the monitor. For once, try releasing the flee power from the monitor. To do this, unplug the power cord of the monitor and press the power button on the monitor for about 15 seconds. You can also try checking the image in safemode of "Windows". if the image is fine there, you need to reinstall/update your video drivers.

Toshiba Satellite M30 - Power Problems only boots when in vertical position

These are known to have a grounding problem between the speakers and mainboard - They were actually sued and eventually settled to extend the warranty. unfortunately the special extenstion program ended a few months ago and toshiba no longer will fix this. The workaround is to add shielding to it.

See this link about it:

If that doesnt fix the problem then you may have motherboard problems and at that point it would be best to part this laptop out and replace it.
