My Toshiba Quasimo has red vertical lines running down the screen and it will only start up in SAFE MODE. I've been told by several people that its the motherboard graphics card. Is this the case and if so can it be fixed and at what price.

Plug the computer into an external monitor. If the picture is normal the screen on the laptop needs replacing. If there are lines on the external monitor then its the motherboard.

Emachines t5274 vertical blue lines during startup/XP.


It looks like you've got two issues. If you tried a different monitor and it too have vertical blue lines your video card might be bad, but hold that thought. I'm thinking you need to reload the operating system because you can't boot all the way up which is the second issue.

Have you tried to boot up in Safe Mode and do a System Restore? Turn the computer off, then turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Select the Safe Mode option. When it boots, if it boots successfully things will look different in Safe Mode. The screen will be darker and icons bigger, but that's normal. If you get into the desktop successfully, click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. Select a restore point (date and time) that is before you started having problems. If the system tells you that you have no restore points, then you will have to either Reload the Operating System or do a System Recovery. By the way, System Restore does not lose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos, or programs unless the program was installed after the restore date. System Recovery LOSES EVERYTHING, it sets your system back to when you first purchased it.

Matrix when booting up.


Make sure you run an updated anti-virus program on the machine in Safe-Mode. You will also want to scan for any root-kits or malware that could be infecting your machine. The thing about malware and root kits is that they appear to be removed (when using an anti-virus program) but can reside in the boot record, so when you reboot, the machine automatically loads the root kit and infects your machine again. I would also scan for spy ware.

Here are some programs you could try:

MalwareBytes (run in safe mode first)

Vipre or kaspersky anti-virus (run in safe mode after malware bytes)

AdAware (scans for spyware, run in safemode as well)

Seek and destroy is another good scanner to run as well.

Failing all those scans, you should backup any important files and reformat the hard drive and reinstall the OS. If there is still a problem, then chances are this is a hardware issue.

Vertical Lines Display - Recovery shows setup not complete


As per my experience, the problem is not because of your Video Card/Driver. Such a problem arises due to faulty RAM. Change your RAM and enjoy computing.

What's wrong with my computer


Yes. You have a very sick VGA card in your computer. Get it replaced. The reason it runs okay in safe mode is because full potent driver and graphics don't load in safe mode to aggravate the card's illness. When the driver fully loads in normal mode, the card freaks out.

Good luck

check the video cable and see if it;s properly seated. run the laptop with something that uses memory. if the video chip it going to show signs of problems, it will be more prominent when the laptop gets hot. most cases laptop motherboards have integrated video cards and cannot be replaced.
