Hi, unfortunately this is an indication of dead pixels in the LCD screen. the only fix is to replace the screen and this may be more expensive than a new computer.
You could try EBAY "Want it now" section listing your exact model and serial number computer to see if some one has a screen available.

Hi I have a toshiba satellite laptop with a 17"


Have you tried to connect an external monitor to see if the thin line is still visible? If not, you can try it but if you do not have an external monitor, you can just access the BIOS (Basic Input Output System) by pressing F10 or Del (whatever key is designed on your laptop to access it) and check if still visible. If it is visible in the BIOS, you may need to replace the LCD inverter or the LCD of your laptop. However, if it doesn't appear in the BIOS, you can try to update your video card driver.

Hope this helps.

How do I remove the hard drive in Toshiba SatellitePro A10 EN? (Removing the plastic cover exposes only the end of the hard drive. I'm reluctant to just start pulling on it!

  • The original Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 HDD is fitted into a Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 Hard Disk Drive cradle - Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 HDD caddy.

      • Gently remove the cradle from the laptop, yes pull on it
      • Unscrew the original Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 Hard Disk Drive & remove it from the cradle.
      • Screw the new Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 Hard Disk Drive into the cradle & refit the cradle into the laptop.
      • Re-install XP or Vista

          The pixels (I assume it is) are going out one by one. It's been an ongoing problem that started with one very thin line right down the middle of the screen. It has now progressed like a cancer over the...

          No need, the screen is indeed dying and there is nothing that even the can do to save it.
          You must replace it, and quickly, otherwise when it will finally fail completely it may fry the video chip.

          i assume you are talking about the screen.

          if the lines appear when you first turn on the screen,
          the lcd screen needs to be replaced. you have a bad capacitor i believe that is not controlling matrix. try pushing with your thumb and index finger around the area that the lines starts (light pressure on the bezel area), it may help, but probably not.

          thanks adi

          Why does this happen..

          hi, unfortunately there is no real preventative measures. I have a screen here less than a year old with similar problems and an antique laptop, old IBM with windows 3.1 on it, maybe 20 years old and the screen is perfect, most times the screen will out last the computer but every so often a faulty one arrises.
          Good luck mistyman

          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.
