It's a hardware fault, you will normally notice if you push on the screen at the top of the line it will disappear, unfortunately you will have to replace the screen.

Video card went out on laptop. Replaced Motherboard. Works great, but now a thin line vertically on monitor. Hooked up to outside monitor and no line. Suspect LCD going out?


The problem description provided by you clearly reveals that the issue is with the LCD screen and a replacement is required.
This is a common problem. Most people just live with it. You can make it less noticeable by changing your background color on your desktop to a pure white color.

White vertical line


That is either a faulty ribbon cable to LCD display, or a defective lcd display itself.

In both cases tha computer must be taken apart and part replaced to fix the fault.

Parts are commonly found on Ebay, or can be ordered from toshiba.

My understanding is that you have 2 laptops with the same problem, if that is the case, you need to replace the lcd. When you have lines on lcd's, that is a sign of a bad lcd.
