Hi there. Because the machine is only one month old i would recommend that you take advantage of the manufacturers warranty and send it in for repair, it won't cost you anything to do this as this sounds like a serious hardware problem or failure which is not of your doing. Telling you to open the laptop will only void your warranty so this is not recommended. Your computer will only be away for a week or so and i know it could be a pain not having it there, but for peace of mind this is the correct procedure.

yes44_yes, If your laptop is only about six months old, I would go to the Toshiba website & register your laptop then Call the tecch support line at (800) 457-7777 most toshiba laptop come with a factory 1 year warranty unless it is a refurbished unit. Then it only has a 30day warranty.
Run a virus check, get a free one from download.com, also check that the lid isn't faulty, if you move it slightly while working it could indicate whether there is faulty wiring or screen. Also check that your graphics drivers are up to date, eve if the laptop is a month old, the drivers may have since been updated and depending on what programmes you are running an update may be reqired. Good luck!
