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.

Hi There,

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

SOURCE: Vertical lines in my laptop screen

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.

I need the SERVICE manual for a Toshiba Satellite P105-S6197 (PART: PSPAAU01200S). Additionally, I cannot get any sound from the laptop following a complete wipe & RECOVERY using the 2 Toshiba...

The Service Manual I can provide,

The Satellite P105 is the same as the P100 series of Notebook PC's in regards to the Service Manual,

Go to the 11th line down.
The one that starts with Satellite A10.
In this collection of files go to the 4th line down.
Go across, and click on P100.

This is a PDF file. After you click on the file name it may take up to 30 seconds before you will see the first page. It may also take additional time to fully download.
(Downloaded just now, took 2 seconds to see the first page, 57 seconds to fully download)

Click on the Bookmarks icon to the left side. (Page with a blue bookmark on it)

Additionally you may find this of some value,

[Click on the photos to enlarge.
You are on Page 1.
Page 1::Page2::Page3::Find another model, is on the top, and bottom of the page in white]

If I were to hazard a guess, my thoughts are that it's something to do with the Service Packs.
Windoze, ya gotta' love it.

I have vertical lines (15 of them now) on my Toshiba laptop.

I'm afraid when you see vertical line on an lcd panel, it most likely is screen failure. Ebay has plenty of screen from good companies in Texas. I get most of my screens from Ebay store LCDTECH99. They have the best prices, most screens are under 100 bucks and they ship right away. The Toshiba screen is an easy repair, Only the bezel needs to be removed in most cases. Below is a guide to show the process.

Vertical lines

Most likely the display is failing. You will need to have it replaced. What color are the lines?

Pink vertical line

From what you discribe it sounds like you have a row of dead pixels.

You can use this website to test for dead pixels:

If you run the test and confirm that you have dead pixels, contact the laptop's manufacturer for support.

Laptop screen issues

This is a bad pixel sensor. Your screen has hundreds of vertical and horizontal pixel sensors on the edge, if one goes out on either end it causes a dead pixel line through the screen. Unfortunately, the only way to fix it is to replace the screen. If you can live with the annoyance, I've seen screens last for years with a pixel line without any other problems.
