Question about Toshiba Satellite 5205-S703 Notebook
Suddenly failed and lost resolution on screen. White lines appear on start up screens and pink after boot up with green lines on black background. Seems unstable with flickering. Hoping I don't have to change the motherboard, but need some help with this one.
I have a Toshiba Satellite 5205 s703 running XP SP3
