    What's the output to an external monitor like?



    If it's ok, Then the problem is either the VGA ribbon cable to the display or the display itself!

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

My laptop wont start its a toshiba g15


have you tried pulling each stick of ram individually?
if there is still no boot then its safe to say that the motherboard or one of the two video cards has failed. its a pretty common on the qosmio g series

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.

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.

Toshiba G15-AV501 Qosmio - no video 1) Following is what I have tried - and did not work, by the way everything I installed had worked for over a month w/o problems, until...no video The problem began when...


Well, I have good news for both of us.

Not only did I find a fix, it's free.

The F15 and G15 series Laptops (which we both have), have an Out-of-Warranty fix (for free). This is not normal, as you may know. The reason it's free, the motherboard is defective... I just called today and they're still replacing the motherboard for free!

Go to the Toshiba website and call their Tech Support number. They'll tell you it's out of warranty and they're going to charge you, just ignore all that. When you get your foreign tech support person on the phone, tell them you've read that the F15 and G15 series were defective and were being replaced free (even without warranty). They'll get your product number of the laptop, process the order, ship you a box (pre-paid shipping), you ship the laptop to them, they fix it, they ship it back, you're back in business!

FREE!

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.
