Question about Toshiba PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have a 17 month old Toshiba qosmio G30. Today a thin white vertical line has appeared on the right hand section of the display. I do not (yet) have the requisite external monitor leads to enable me to check whether this is a screen or graphics problem. 1. Is this a common fault? 2.Will it get worse? 3. Is there a reasonable solution?

Im having the same problem and from wut I am reading in alot of diff places the screen is going bad or has cracked from rapid temp change is the most popular answer I have recived, as for a fix check ebay and buy a new one...I found some for as cheaps a $98 and some change and I have already taken mine apart to see how hard it will be to replace...its pretty simple...there are 6 rubber feet on the screen bezal remove them and keep them face up so the sticky stuff dont get anything on them...next there are 6 screws under each one of the rubber feet remove them...pull the bezal off gentaly so u dont break it...next there are 4 screws onthe sides of the screen itself remove them...next remove the flat wire and the backlight wires from the screen and there ya go all apart...to put it back together reverse the steps. :D...

and I know this post is just over a year old but I figured since no one else has posted a fix, I would just in case either he/she still has the same problem or even if some one else has this problem... well good luck

Suddenly a very thin vertical yellow/white line appearing on my HP desktop monitor? pls help


Does it appear THE MOMENT you turn the unit on?

If it does, then you will have to run the monitor's self-test function by turning it on with the data cable (the one that does NOT connect to the power outlet) DISCONNECTED from the computer.

If the line still appears, then the monitor is faulty & cannot be "repaired". Usually, the entire LCD module is replaced.

If the line does not appear in the self-test mode, then check if it's connected to an ON-BOARD display adapter (typically found in the back of the machine, towards the middle area, towards where the ethernet cable and USB devices plug in) or a EXPANSION CARD (normally located towards the BOTTOM part in the back of the machine).

If it plugs in to the on-board slot, then the motherboard may be faulty. If it plugs in to an expansion card, then it's the card that may need to be replaced.

Of course, these are merely possibilities, but the most likely failing component here is the monitor itself. Busted display adapters very rarely, if at all, manifest these horizontal or vertical lines and STILL boot up. Regardless if it's on-board or expansion card, a failing display adapter would normally have either no display at all, or it would just simply stop booting up (screen remains dark: no lines).

E machines flat computer screen began blinking and having colored lines going through it after turning black. By odd mishap I realized when I pressed on the screen it stopped doing that. That has been...


By the way, is it an LCD screen? I guess so. LCDs have small IC's either on the lower portion or in the left side of the screen. When these become loose, the tendency is to have vertical or horizontal lines on the screen. Hot air blower might solve the problem. But most will not. Better claim warranty or replace the unit.

White 1 inch vertical band on display


just a thought.. Either your Graphics card or your Video Card has gone bad.. unfortunately DELL has a tendency of putting the graphics ON-BOARD and IF the onboard grqaphics card is bad, you'll need to get into the BIOS and turn the onboard graphics off then purchase an after market Graphics driver.. IMPORTANT: make certain that the graphic cars is compatable with the DELL PC OR purchase a less Proprietary system

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.
