Sounds like the screen is going bad. Isolate the problem by plugging an external monitor to the laptop. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker to plug to the laptop. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If the Borrowed monitor does not show the rainbow lines, that proves your video card is ok and the problem is your lcd screen. If the borrowed monitor shows the same rainbow lines it means your video card inside the computer has the issue.

The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

Booting process take so much current from the battery. If the battery is not capable of supplying enough current to boot up, this may happen. Replace the battery with a new one. the present battery inside it will have insufficiant current for first boot up.

I would think that the internal battery connections have been damaged from the fall. They may only need re-soldering. Any drop on to a hard surface from almost any height can damage your laptop.

Toshiba... | Answered on Apr 18, 2011

There's several things that cause this:
- Your ac adaptor could be dead - use a spare one or but a replacement and test. - The power jack on the laptop could be damaged - you need to have a specialist replace this for you - The battery could be dead - test with a spare battery if you have one - If all else fails it means that the motherboard has malfunctioned and needs to be replaced.
It is highly suggested that you bring this system to a professional for repair or purchase a used one with the same specs and swap out your hard drive as it could cost you hundreds to fix this problem. You can buy a used, working one for $250 ob buy it now on ebay, or cheaper if you buy one on a regular auction: http://cgi.ebay.com/Toshiba-Satellite-M35X-S149-1-5GHz-512GB-Ram-60GB-HD-/320664896971?pt=Laptops_Nov05&hash=item4aa91e05cb

Hello, before you do anything drastic, my computer crashed and on reboot said the same thing. After panicking (and a cup of tea), I found the bios had defaulted to booting from the wrong disk. All was ok after I set the bios back to boot from the correct disk again.
Hope this helps!
best wishes,

The Problem seems to be in the connector of the power adapter ( the one you plug in), or the power connector socket - which you will need to replace.

Toshiba... | Answered on Nov 29, 2010

Hello !

Connect an external monitor and if it works, your problem is the display's backlight or inverter board.

If you were experiencing discoloration in the screen (pinkish lower light hues) before it failed, that would indicate a CCFL backlight issue. If the screen suddenly went dim on you rather than a slow degradation the inverter would be indicated.

In either case, a technician in your area should be able to help. Evaluate to see if the repair is cost-effective.

Hope this helps.
