Question about Toshiba G15-AV501 Qosmio Notebook

1 Answer

My G15-AV501 Model PQG10U-00Y00L has a growing number of vertical white lines on the LCD screen. The laptop has been used very little and is not used for travel. It just sits on my desk. How do I fix this and how much does it cost. Am I better off just buying another different brand laptop?

I own a Toshiba Qosmio G15-AV501 laptop with the vertical cyan lines problem. Every area of my monitor that should be white is instead covered with cyan and white pinstripes. The bad news is that this...


What your describing is usually a video chip problem, if you had to send it in for repair under a recall or warranty issue, and it was repaired by Toshiba, then by all means contact them and seek further repair. Or you can also politely tell them that you would like them to replace the laptop with a similar model. I have worked with Toshiba as well as many other brands, and I have found that most if not all companies will be willing to " Make it right" for the consumer.

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.

reboot in Safe Made by pressing F8 at boot up. Then restore the system to an earlier date. This may be happening due to some malicious prog that you have installed or due to a virus. If due to a virus, the install AVG Anti Virus free from www. download.com.

Section of screen is fuzzy


Usually when you see this type of display problem the lcd display needs replacing. Do you know if it was bumped or dropped? That is usually what can cause this. The connector for the screen inside the lid gets shifted just enough to not make a proper contact. Can be fixed but it is a very fiddly thing to do. And usually involves bad language and a few hours of trial and eoor to get it right.

Replacement of the screen is much safer for your sanity and cheaper.

I have a Toshiba Qosmio G15R and I need drivers


I went to the Intel site and downloaded the Intel® PRO/100 VE Network Connection driver here. It worked great. Now if I could find the right audio/multimedia drivers I'd be happy. Hope this helps.

pop the keyboard and look on the board next to the clock battery. You should see three jumper points, WITH THE POWER OUT AND ALL BATTERIES DISCONNECTED, short terminals 1 and 2 with the end of a flat bladed screwdriver. Replace all power sources and reconnect the power.

I had the same problem, what you need to do is call Pamela Saunders at Toshiba Corporate in Irving, CA and she will get it repaired for you at no cost to you regardless of warranty. This is a bad batch of computers.

The Phone Number is: 800-457-7777 or 949-462-6000

Vertical lines in my laptop screen


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.
