Display problem with Toshiba 5105-S701

The XP Laptop is generating Vertical lines which is making it difficult to view the screen, Is this due to faulty Graphics. I have tried updating the dirvers but did not help. Initially it started as intermittent problem but now it is permamnent. I also tried connecting the laptop to an external monitor and that also displays the same problem.
If it is the card than where can i get a replacement card and fix the problem? IT uses nvidia geforce4 440.

SINCE THIS WAS AN INTERMITTENT PROBLEM ARE YOU GOING TO BE THE ONE DOING THE REPAIR,IF SO I WOULD CHECK EVERY CONNECTION IN IT.I HAD A SIMILAR PROBLEM AND IT TURNED OUT TO BE THE CONNECTIONS THAT WENT TO THE MONITOR.IT SEEMS TO BE A GRAPHIC CARD PROBLEM BUT I WOULD NOT CHANGE THE GRAPHICS CARD UNTIL I CHECKED ALL CONNECTIONS.AND SINCE YOU HOOKED IT TO ANOTHER MONITOR I WOULD SAY IT IS THE GRAPHICS CARD.I HAVE FOUND LOT OF PARTS AND STUFF ON EBAY.THEY ARE USUALLY THE LOWEST PRICES I CAN FIND.
GOOD DAY

I have 5105-s607 with the same problem. Fixed it yesterday by adding a heatsink to the VGA chip (0.8mm x 30mm) to the CPU cooler. I did lots of stress testing and it works really well now.

I have a Toshiba 5105 s701 laptop. The graphics card (reportedly) is what will "fizz out" after a while, starting with some vertical lines on some or all parts of the screen, then if I continue,...


There is probably a COLD JOINT (broken solder) on the video or mother board, I would recommend to check the warranty and see if you can claim it, if not than you could try re-flowing the board, there are companies that do this or you can do it your self (if you have skills, courage, gutts and nothing to lose...), first you need to STRIP the laptop completely so that you have just the motherboard in your hands, (remove everything that is removable) wires, connectors, batteries, etc..., than pre-heat your oven to 390 F, put the board in a cookie tray with a 1 inch elevation (you can use aluminium balls in each corners) put it in the oven for 8 minuts than turn off the oven, delicately open the oven door and DONT'T MOVE IT the time it cools down to room temperature, re-assemble the laptop and try it... if it works, serve with a nice cold beer ha! if not than you need a new laptop...

Worked for me with a DEL Latitude... it's running fine since...

Good luck!

My laptop shows lines and cant play any 3D games


Check the minimum specs for the game (on the game box) - your laptop is probably far below the minimum hardware requirement.

It sounds like the hard drive is dying. I had a computer do the same thing and it turned out to be the hard drive. You should still be able to access the bios though. Try hittind either delete or F1 as soon as your toshiba screen appears.

Graphics cards


I believe that this is intergrated onto the mainboard and cannot be changed usually they were fitted with the Geoforce 440
