Hi, Definitely you have a driver issue and potentially an LCD issue.
I would do a clean install of the OS.
If you still have issues, your screen is damaged. Lines running thrugh an LCD screen are a sign of dead pixels/columns. You can get screen replacements for laptops via a kit or servicing.

you can check online for LCD replacement kit costs.... prices vary widely for computer models

Distorted, scratchy sound with Toshiba Satellite


OK, I would restore or recover the computer to manufacturer's original specifications and automatic update to the latest sp3.

Then, I would reinstall your virus protection and see if it's better.

LCD flickering at the bottom of screen


This appears to be a faulty CCFL lamp which supplies the back-light.
Because it is less than 6 months old, I suggest you get it fixed under warranty.
If you try to fix it yourself you will void your warranty.

This definately is hardware issue.
2 options for you.
1. open the screen and check if the signal cable to lose. if you can out it in right place you can fix this onyour own.( I would recommend this only if you have prior experience in troubleshooting laptop hardware)

2. otherwise see the hardware vendor.

My Satellite A355D-S6889 does not recognize the AC adaptor. It is only 6 monthes old laptop and adaptor. It sits in one spot most of the time so I wouldn't think any dammage would have happened to it....


Try to update the BIOS by checking the manufacturer's website for any BIOS update.

Choose the OS you are using and check if there are any BIOS updates recently.

else try to press F2 as soon as you turn on the laptop and enter into the BIOS set up.
There's an option to restore defaults. Once this is done Save changes and the system boots.

Restart the system and the AC adapter will be detected.

I sent my laptop to Toshiba and they said they removed the 3rd party memory I installed (although I tried this prior to shipping). I didn't reinstall the memory and now it works fine.

Horizontal stripes & a buzzing screen


When it does this, can you press on the back of the screen and get any change? If so, then you have a loose screen connection. If not, then you most likely have a bad or failing screen that will eventually go out completely. The thing is, if it's a failing screen, it may last years, or it may go out the next time you turn it on. You can never tell with them. I'm betting on a loose connection.

LCD monitor problem


What you described sounds like a loose LCD cable inside. Does it flicker or have video distortion when it's moved?
