Question about Toshiba Satellite P105-S6197 Laptop
If it was the video card then there is a possible fix as most video cards go down due to overheating causing faulty soldered joints.
Note the words possible and most as this is not a "cure all"
Here is an example of the "fix" and yes it can work
Don't forget for a laptop you have to strip it down to remove the video card of if it is contained as a integral part of the motherboard you have to use a heat gun (there are other clips on youtube showing how) so it's not for the faint hearted.

You may have a lucky chance here. It's worth a look. Please connect your laptop to an external monitor and view the laptop's video output there. Sometimes you have to use the fn key with one of the F keys to transfer the signal when powered on and it varies which F key is used on different makes.
If the vertical lines do not appear on the external monitor then your video card is fine and it's the LCD and/or screen inverter causing the problem. If the lines duplicate on the external monitor it means your video card is definitely failing and will have to be replaced.
I'll cast my vote for your LCD because it's a much less expensive repair.
Best of Luck

There could be three different possibilities why you would get a line on your lcd display.
First, it could be a missing signal from the controller IC to LCD driver IC
Second it could be a defective LCD driver IC itself
Third it could be a dry contact in the tape carrier package ( TCP).
Attach an external monitor to your laptop and make it your primary display unit to see if you are still getting the lines if not its you TCP if you still get lines it will need to have either the LCD IC or the controller IC checked and possibly replaced.
