Question about Toshiba (5105-S701) Graphic Card
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.

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.
