Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

There are thin vertical lines appearing on my Toshiba Qosmio G10. These lines are thread thin. First there was one, now there are two and a third is appearing. Can you please tell me what the problem might be and if it is fixable at a reasonable cost. Many thanks. I look forward to hearing from you. Paddy

    Thanks a million. Just one question, how do I check the video card to ensure that it's it that's causing the problem.

    Many thanks for your help

Its not the card. It is more likely the ribbon connector between the PCB and the LCD screen. Should not cost all that much to get it fixed.

There are several things that can cause it. You are best to have an expert technician come in and take some test on it in order to determine if it is from vertical blanking failure or something else. It is not easy to fix this yourself, if you have no experience, because there are a lot of parts that have to be removed before you can reach the components. It could be as simple as a loose connector ribbon or a bust capacitor, but it could also be more complicated. Hence, in my honest opinion, better get a qualified technician.

Hope that helps!

Plug the computer into an external monitor. If the picture is normal the screen on the laptop needs replacing. If there are lines on the external monitor then its the motherboard.

My understanding is that you have 2 laptops with the same problem, if that is the case, you need to replace the lcd. When you have lines on lcd's, that is a sign of a bad lcd.
