Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527 Notebook
The easiest way to troubleshoot your problem is by connecting your laptop to an external monitor. WHether you have one at home, or need to take it to a friends or your place of work, start by attaching the cable to the monitor and you laptop. Then start your laptop up and hold down the fn key and press the F5 key and let go. This will trnasfer the video signal to the external monitor. If you can see the normal display on the external monitor that you would normally see on your laptop, you problem is only the LCD screen panel on your laptop and it would need to be replaced.
If the same horizontal lines appear on the external monitor, then your video/graphics ship on the motherboard has failed and you'll need to send the laptop in for repair or replacement of the motherboard to fix the problem. I send these advanced problem laptops to any of several repair vendors on eBay and have had excellent results. Simply go to eBay and in the search box type in Laptop Motherboard Repair. You will be sent to a site with many vendors there capable of doing your repair. If the prices seem to high for the relative current value of your laptop, it may be time to consider upgrading to a newer one.

Testimonial: "AWESOME, THANKS"
Please connect your laptop to an external monitor. If there is no occurrence of the aforementioned then the problem here is the LCD display. However, if it does appear on the external, definitely its your video graphic card that is integrated with your motherboard. Please let me know if you need further assistance. Thank you and regards.
