Green Vertical Stripe on Toshiba Satellite A80

I have a Toshiba Satellite A80 laptop PC that has a green stripe running down the monitor display (just left of center and about an 2 inches wide.) This began as a pinkish discoloration of hot spots in the same parameters and has progressed to this current state. Any ideas how I can get rid of it?

Re: Green Vertical Stripe on Toshiba Satellite A80

This sounds like something has messed up your crystals in your display, and while I do not know that much about laptop displays this sounds like it can only be fixed by a technician or by replacement.

Sounds like it could be a driver problem. I would try to update the driver from the Intel website, and see if that helps. If that doesn't work for you, then the screen itself or possibly the lcd cable or connection on the motherboard may be where the issue lies.

Monitor screen with pink line

While I've never seen the stripe be pink, it's not impossible for it to appear that color. Your monitor is bad, and isn't easily or cheaply fixed.

Dell flat screen goes white and colored block appears and floats

Check that your monitor is connected properly and tightly to the computer. If it is, then the monitor may be bad. Borrow a friend's monitor and try to see if it works, if someone else's monitor works, then replace your monitor.

Hi. i have an LG 42inch plasma, approx 18 months old. about 2 months ago, a green stripe developed down the right hand side of the screen, approx 1.5 inches wide. last week a 2nd stripe the same width...

Sadly, the plasma screen is failing. The green strip is no longer functioning properly and the failures will continue to progress.

If still under warranty, get it exchanged.

When I turn on the Toshiba Satellite A215-S7447 laptop, the monitor part of it doesn't turn on with the rest of the system.

Plug in an external monitor. use the <FN><F5> keys to toggle between the internal lcd and the external monitor. If the display external works and the lcd doesn't, most likely a bad inverter board.

My toshiba m105 it wasn't the inverter, it was the lcd itself, the TAB welds were no good but the lcd still worked it just had a 3" vertical blacked out area on the lcd.

My toshiba satellite pro 4600 laptop display screen,,, ummm...accidentally broke.I have a extra home pc monitor,Does my laptop support an external monitor? If so,can i just plug it in and windows will...

It should support it.

If your laptop has a VGA output, connect the VGA cable from that to VGA input on monitor. Then hold down the function (Fn) key and press one of your F2 or F3 or whatever F# keys that has a pic of a monitor on it or it will say lcd/crt in blue lettering on it.
