Hi my laptop has garbled video: different colored speckles around screen in a repeating patten (varies somewhat each time I resart it) also gets vertical red lines all across screen.
The red lines can vary when I press down firmly in left far corner of NB base, vicinity of F1 key
Sometimes will have normal video after restarting several attempts
Help please thanks firstname.lastname@example.org When I turn on my IBM Thinkpad T42 I have garbled video with colored lines and squares before in boots to windows. However system still boots but video is still garbled. Turning the laptop on and off multiple times solves the problem and video works normally. The same issue occurs on external monitor as well. I do not believe there is a problem with the video memory or GPU since the system boots normally. Just garbled video.
I have already tried reseating video connectors.
This is very possibly a hardware problem, namely a crack in the motherboard. Sorry, no easy or cheap fix for it if that's the case.
