I bought Toshiba satellite T135 last year but it has splash screen when I search the internet .How can I do to solve the problem?
When I read "twinkle", I have the picture of individual pixels flashing white in the middle of colored or dark areas. This would be a hardware problem (bad connections to those pixels), unless it occurs only when you are running certain programs. Usually if you have display connection problems, they will show up as an entire row or column of pixels stuck on one color, but intermittent single pixels are possible.
There are two types of flickering (flashing all over the display or an area of the display). In one, you will see irregular, mostly horizontal bands of slightly darker or brighter areas moving rapidly all over the display. This happens on some displays when the resolution is on certain settings other than the display's maximum ("native") resolution. For example, the native resolution of the T135-S1300 is 1366x768. (There are about half a dozen variants of the T135, so I only mention the one I checked for an example.)
The other type of flickering is caused by a problem with the backlight. Most of the older laptops have a fluorescent tube at the top and bottom of the screen. When these approach the end of life, they start to flicker, especially when the computer is first turned on, and often have pinkish tint. The T135-S1300 uses LED backlights, so that should not be a problem.
If you have a hardware problem, it would probably be one of the foregoing, and it would show up in all programs, or when you have nothing going except your Desktop picture. If the problem shows up only in the web browser, you may have some weird browser add-on or plug-in. What browser is it (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari ...)?
Another possibility is a virus or other malware program. Open your anti-virus program, tell it to update its virus definitions, then run a full scan. Do the same with your spyware remover.
