Toshiba satellite m305-s4910 flickering toolbar
My M305-S4910 was doing the same thing. After some research, I replaced the video cable. The flickering was not as bad, but still there. I just replaced the inverter, and the pink line beneath the toolbar is now gone and so is the flickering. :-)

Have a satellite m305-s4910. Screen
Seems that you have a faulty LCD cable. The
LCD cable transfers data signal from the motherboard & video card
to the LCD screen. It also supplies high voltage DC power to the screen
inverter board. The screen inverter board works as a power supply for
the backlight lamp mounted inside the LCD screen. It converts low
voltage DC power to high voltage AC power needed for the backlight lamp. You will need to replace this cable to fix the problem permanently.

BOOT MENU PASSWORD
If you are being asked for a boot menu password, then you must have set one (or. if you got the computer from another person, they must have set one).
This laptop does not have the password set by default.
If you can't find the password, you have no alternative but to dissassemble the computer and remove the backup battery and clear the CMOS on the motherboard.

Okay I have a 14-month old Toshiba Satelite
I have a M305-S4831, the screen started flickering a couple months ago and it seemed that the problem was related to the position of the open screen.
Somewhere I read that the cable connector has very tiny contacts and one may need a new monitor cable. Well, this is what I did with fantastic results:
1. I removed the 4 screen frame screws which are under the 4 plugs.
2. Carefully remove the frame, there are the normal plastic snap into place clips around the frame on all four sides. Use a very thin screwdriver or knife blade to get the first of the clips to release then just keep going around until all clips are free. CAUTION: the wireless antenna cable goes along the left side of the screen from bottom to just around the top left corner.
3. Notice the cloth covered cable on the left side that ends with a white plastic plug set. Mine was "secured" by a small piece of yellowish scotch tape.
4. Gently unplug the connection, I used my fingernails ever so slowly to get it apart, then reconnect together. This 'scrapes' the contacts clean a bit.
5. Get out your favorite hot glue glue gun and heat it up. Then I just hotglued the cable to the cover inside surface for about a half inch distance backward from the white plug. I secured not only the cable but also a bit on the connector itself as well.
6. Now when I open and close the lid, the cable end is fully secured but the cable is still free to twist as required.
7. Restart the computer and check your screen by carefully moving the cover...the screen should not flicker any more.
8. Reinstall the monitor frame and 4 screws and plugs.
9. Enjoy a normal monitor.
10. I did not want to buy anything, and I figured I had nothing to loose by trying this. So far it has worked for me.
