I have a Toshiba Equium A200 laptop, and for the past 3 months thin lines have started to appear on the right hand side of the screen. It started with one red line, now there's a group of multicoloured lines on the right hand side (basically the full width of a scroll bar, as it covers it completely on this laptop) and another clump of multi coloured lines about an inch away from it.
I've read a few places, and most people say it's the GPU/Video Card that's broken. But I've plugged the laptop to an external monitor and these lines don't appear then, so I think it's safe to rule out that.
I have noticed that if I pull the top right corner of the screen towards me, some of them dissapear, so it's looking (to me) as the screen has gone.
The question I have, is that if it's the screen that's broken, is there any way I can fix it without replacing the screen panel. I have next to no money available to fix it, but I do need it for work etc.
Do any of you guys have a really clever way of fixing the issue? Even if it's temporary, or gets rid of half of the lines.
