There isn't some magic disk that will fix all of your problems...sorry.

Yes, you'll have to replace the lcd in order to get the laptop in 100% working condition.

The problem will get progressively worse the more you use it.

You can find a replacement screen on ebay for around $120 and install it yourself. Takes about 10 minutes to do and it's relatively easy.

Best of Luck!

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 :-)

I have vertical lines (15 of them now) on my Toshiba laptop.


I'm afraid when you see vertical line on an lcd panel, it most likely is screen failure. Ebay has plenty of screen from good companies in Texas. I get most of my screens from Ebay store LCDTECH99. They have the best prices, most screens are under 100 bucks and they ship right away. The Toshiba screen is an easy repair, Only the bezel needs to be removed in most cases. Below is a guide to show the process.

Toshiba have their own system for checking and optimising screen I cannot remember what it is called but you put a disk in and it would just run. Have a look at your disks it could be under restore disks or have a look on the toshiba web site or you manual it iwill tell you how to run it.
