Laptop Screen Bleg

This is a picture of my laptop screen, which I bought new about a year ago. It's a Toshiba Satellite L755 with a dual-boot installation of Win 7 and Linux Mint 11. As you can see it's divided itself into thirds and swapped the left and right thirds. On the right side of each third it's got a few dozen pixel-wide vertical stripes each a pixel apart.

It's doing it in both Windows and Linux, which makes me think it's a hardware problem, and probably in the chips somewhere. I can't find much help online, but a new computer would be a major expense I'd like to avoid if possible. Anyone got any advice?

  1. Take it apart and check the cables that connect from the display through the hinge into the motherboard. Search online for the disassembly instructions. However, likely its a bad display. You may be able to find replacement parts on ebay.

  2. Or I could say it's too many browsers installed.

  3. Haha touche. It seems to have fixed itself overnight--if it does it again I'll try that first. Thanks!
