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...

Hello, I just bought a Toshiba laptop.Then I downloaded this game called World of Tanks, but my laptop cant handle the graphics and details and it gets an avg of 3 fps which really bugs me. But im still...


Laptops in general usually have weaker graphics cards. You don't mention the model of the Toshiba laptop you have, so I can't really tell what graphics chipset is used in your case. If it's an old laptop (i.e. you bought it second-hand) then it's possible that there's not much you can do about it. On the other hand, if it's a relatively modern model (released in the last 2-3 years) it should have enough horse-power to play games, albeit in lower resolutions/details than a desktop graphics card.
Make sure you have the latest graphics driver installed for your model (and Windows version). Again, since you don't mention which model that is, I cannot give you a specific link to get it from. Try Toshiba's website and go from there.
You can find the model name underneath the laptop, usually on a silver sticker near a corner.
Hope that helps!

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.

I suspect my graphics card has been swapped by my comp. guy.


Your graphics are integrated into the motherbaord, so he couldn't have changed it out on you. Your Satellite has a ATI MOBILITY RADEON 9000 IGP with 64MB shared memory.

You can try to update or rollback the driver to see if that solves the problem, or contact the guy who serviced your laptop and see if he has any ideas.

NVIDIA GE FORCE 4 40 GO
