Re: toshiba a10 satellite laptop screen problem
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. Regards mistyman

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.
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.
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
