My toshiba is close to five years old. the other day the whole screen began shaking and began getting hot. I think the fan is shutting down yet wanted to find out if it was worth getting someone to look at it or should I replace it?

Hi Kevin, My daughter has the same problem with her laptop, do you find that when you move the screen slowly back and forth it either stops or gets worse ? You will need to take your laptop in to an HP dealer and let them have a look at it. Regards :)
I have a M305-S4831, the screen started flickering a couple months ago and it seemed that the problem was related to the position of the open screen.
Somewhere I read that the cable connector has very tiny contacts and one may need a new monitor cable. Well, this is what I did with fantastic results:
1. I removed the 4 screen frame screws which are under the 4 plugs.
2. Carefully remove the frame, there are the normal plastic snap into place clips around the frame on all four sides. Use a very thin screwdriver or knife blade to get the first of the clips to release then just keep going around until all clips are free. CAUTION: the wireless antenna cable goes along the left side of the screen from bottom to just around the top left corner.
3. Notice the cloth covered cable on the left side that ends with a white plastic plug set. Mine was "secured" by a small piece of yellowish scotch tape.
4. Gently unplug the connection, I used my fingernails ever so slowly to get it apart, then reconnect together. This 'scrapes' the contacts clean a bit.
5. Get out your favorite hot glue glue gun and heat it up. Then I just hotglued the cable to the cover inside surface for about a half inch distance backward from the white plug. I secured not only the cable but also a bit on the connector itself as well.
6. Now when I open and close the lid, the cable end is fully secured but the cable is still free to twist as required.
7. Restart the computer and check your screen by carefully moving the cover...the screen should not flicker any more.
8. Reinstall the monitor frame and 4 screws and plugs.
9. Enjoy a normal monitor.
10. I did not want to buy anything, and I figured I had nothing to loose by trying this. So far it has worked for me.
This appears to be a faulty CCFL lamp which supplies the back-light.
Because it is less than 6 months old, I suggest you get it fixed under warranty.
If you try to fix it yourself you will void your warranty.
could you confirm the OS installed onthe system.....
one of the solution is.....
click start->then click on control panel-> the power option(the main heading) ->click on change plan setting on the right side next to balanced option ->then click on change advanced power setting -> scroller down and check if you can find VGA ->change if from maximum battery performance to the maximum power performance..
close all the screen and check if the screen still flickers...if yes let me know to heko drivers for VGA adaptor
let me know if it help... regards
what i recommend you to test is to press behind your monitor and see that the line goes off or not.If it does..that mean you have a loose connection,it can be fix.Incase no then you have problem with your LCD.Normally if its LCD problem then you fix this problem,all you have to do is change the LCD.
Your laptop screen has a thin ribbon connecting the screen to the mainboard. after upening and closing your screem these pins sometimes breaks causeings streaks in your screen. My compaq note book has to be resoldered because of a lose connection on back for power. your gonna want to get that fixed before you fry your board. costs about 50 bucks for an hours work to get that solderd. It could be linked to your flikering issue..
