HI there,

A soon as you can, connect the laptop to an external monitor and switch to that monitor when connected by holding down the "fn" key and pressing F5. If the external monitor displays normally with no colored band, then your laptop's screen needs to be replaced.

If the same colored band appears on the external monitor, it means that your video chip/controller on the motherboard is about to fail, at which point the screen will go black and stay that way. In this scenario, you need to have the chip on the motherboard replaced or the motherboard itself.

Here's hoping your laptop is under warranty still. If it's not, go to eBay and type "Toshiba Laptop Motherboard Repair" in the search window. Hopefully, you can get a flat rate there of $125 to $175 for the repair.

Best of luck to you.

LCD Screen colors are bad on toshiba Satellite M115-S3094


Was the screen showing all OK before you updated the driver? If so did you try backing out (uinstalling) the graphics driver? You mentioned gtaking screen cover off ... did you completely remove the screen from the laptop, including the wide connector at the top and the smaller one at the bottom, and the small one to the backlight? These connectors might be seated wrong, and you'll have to reseat them, mostly the big one at the top. Best o'luck, Moorethemerrier!

Toshiba Satellite P105-S6124 Screen lines


Are these lines on the screen during the whole boot process? If so then the screen cpu and/or the video cpu has gone bad. Connect an external monitor. If the picture is clear, no lines, then the problem is the LCD screen. If the lines appear on the external monitor during the boot process then the mother board will need replacement.

Good Luck

Laptop monitor goes black


If you're working on the computer when that happens, it's not probably a power setting. Try to update your BIOS to the most current version at the toshiba support website (support.toshiba.com) & see what happens. Fixes the issue most of the time

I hope this helps.
