Very thin vertical lines on display that won't go away
I have an issue with some photos I tried to send to my daughter about a month ago. My system go stuck and Microsofl had to un-stick it. Right after then when closing down some file got stuck when logging off and the
result was four very thin lines up and down the entire screen and the first two are very close together and the other two are spread apart. They are very annoying and interfere with my other programs etc
Re: very thin vertical lines on display that won't go...
This might be a software issue with your video driver (follow Microsoft's built-in Help to test that, and look for an updated driver for your particular hardware) but it is fairly unlikely to be a driver issue. The thin lines running through your screen are usually due to screen failure -- hope you have your warranty, because this is a hardware issue and usually pretty expensive if you're out of pocket.

It's the connector problems. If you know what to do, I can guide you:
First, remove the screw all over the LCD case, then you can see the connector, and flexible cables. Second, remove the keyboard unit(by removing all screw on the unit), after removed, find the edge of the LCD cables, then you can see the connector.
The solution: 1.Try clean this two connector with soft brushes ( paint brush is good ), by removing the cable first,then clean the flexible connector using wet tissue ( use the alcohol ).
2. If still exist, you need to replace the flexible with new ones.
If you have External Monitor check by connecting it if you get display on external monitor without line it means Display screen is Bad, if Line appears on external display as well then there is either Display driver issue or motherboard problem.
Try connecting an external monitor to the Dell Inspiron 9300 and see if the vertical line is also present on the monitor. If the monitor display is fine, then your laptop’s LCD display panel is defective. If the monitor also displays the vertical line, then your problem is with either the video card or motherboard located inside your laptop. Not sure if the Compaq Presario has an external monitor plug, but if it does the above procedure can be applied to that one as well.

Yes the problem is with your video system hardware, most likely. A repair may be possible as it could be the delicate ribbon cable that provides the video signal from a connection on the motherboard to the actual display screen. It could be the display screen. If some tech-savy friend with a good rep and an anti-static mat, good tools, and good lighting wants to assist you or check it for you, you may give that a try. Consider first that if you have or can get an extended warranty from the manufacturer then you can have a higher likelihood of a good resolution of the problem of the vertical lines that distract from viewing the display.
Many times over years of use the thin canle that connects motherboard to monitor becomes loose very slightly but enough to create these type effects on screen.First easy test would simply be hooking up another monitor to rule out video card.Next would be looking up how to disassemble the plastic trim to expose the lcd cable then carefully disconnecting it then reseating it.If problem still exists wiggle the lcd cable see if it affects lines on lcd display if so then you probably need new cable if not then most likely an lcd screen. Screens can usually be replaced in about 45 minutes by avg.person.
First, which model of Toshiba notebook do you have? Check it's bottom label- it will say "Toshiba" and have the model on it.
Then, try to update the display drivers. You can download them at www.toshibadirect.com/support. If that doesn't work, you may have an issue with the BIOS or the display itself.
