Pale Vertical lines on my monitor

My laptop was working perfectly until I opened it today. The moniter (screen) comes on (lights up) but instead of getting the usual page where I can sign in, all I get are pale blueish vertical lines. Also, I no longer hear the faint sound of the computer being on. HELP!!!!!!!

Unfortunately, you're not going to be able to get a new cable as Toshiba will not sell OEM replacement parts to anyone but an authorized repair center.

This may just as likely be a problem with the sockets/plugs as with the cable itself, as they are rather fragile. It may be worth spending a few bucks for a used cable just to see if it will solve your problem. Also be sure that the thin plastic shim found on the top of most of these cable ends is still there, as they can come off rather easily, and the lack of it will cause a poor connection.

Your other alternatives are (1) Toshiba repair center, or (2) using the external monitor.

Hope that's helpful.

You mention in your post to branded laptops. You can try to check if the problem is from the LCD or from the Video card. Connect your laptop to an external monitor and check if the white vertical line appears, if yes replace motherboard if video card is integrated, if expansion then replace video card alone. If no lines from the external monitor then laptop LCD has the problem.

Laptop screen comes on after several startups

Hi there.
The laptop is suffering from major issues with the bios.
Seeing as the laptop is only 6 months old i would recommend that you take advantage of the manufacturers warranty, providing the fault is not user fault (by what you explain its hardware) they will fix the issue or replace the laptop at no cost to yourself. Standard warranty is 12 months.
I don't want to tell you to start messing about with it as doing so will void the warranty.
While you are still able to use it back up all of your data before you send it in.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Vertical lines in my laptop screen

This could be a failure in several areas along the path from the video card to the monitor.

Being that there is not an issue across the entire monitor the video card should be considered a last resort check.

Usually this is caused by a loose connection between the LCD driver and the LCD panel itself. Sometimes light pressure applied near the affected line will clear it up. If that does then it is a connection between the LCD panel and the connector to the LCD driver at the panel's edge.

Not much can be done unless you have it repaired by a professional or you can take it apart yourself and apply a pad of some type inside the monitor's edge to apply the needed pressure once assembled.

The vertical line is a bad pixel sensor at the edge of the screen, your screen has hundreds of vertical and horizonal pixel sensors. This is an indicator that the screen is going out and need replacing.

Screen only showing vertical lines after being dropped

The damage could be either in the LCD screen or the connection cable. Open the screen assembly and check the connection cable first.
In case it doesn't work you can find replacement LCD screens here.
