Toshiba L300 laptop LCD Problem

Specs: Windows Vista

I have a toshiba L300 laptop. The problem is in the display. I have it already checked by a technician but he cannot pin point the problem of the LCD.

Actually the display contains vertical white lines that disrupt the display. However, on the top most portion of the display, about 1/4 of an inch, the display is very clear.

The technician suggest buying a new LCD but its too expensive.

Must not be a very good technician. Was the laptop connected to an external monitor to see if the display problems carried over? Obviously if you have the same problem with both, the problem is NOT with the laptop screen, so it must be a problem with the graphics card (or integrated graphics). If your laptop has a card, it can be replaced, but if it uses integrated graphics, the motherboard would must likely need to be replaced. And depending on the cost & age of your laptop, it may be best to just buy a new one.

haven't done that yet. thanks for the advice, i'll try that if i can find an external monitor, and i'll tell you the result.

but as of this writing, my laptop LCD is very clear, except for the two white horizontal lines at the top portion of the LCD (these lines seems to divide the clear and blurred areas as mentioned on my previous post). And my LCD right now seems to snaps (every second) from clear to blurred (somewhat like the LCD tries to move 1/8 of an inch then goes back to clear).

and thank you very much mickliq for the reply. well i think the price of the LCD for replacement is half the price of a new NetBook. i just like this laptop due to its separate video card and 3Gb RAM.

thanks again, hope to hear a lot suggestions on how to handle this problem.

I have a toshiba satellite l300 with same problem I was told it could possibly be the connecting cable for the lcd not sitting in place correctly i am about to pull my screen apart and check if it is that and if it can be fixed if you hold the lcd near the top middle and have thumb on lcd and fingers behind then gently apply pressure and pull forward the flickering may stop as this is what mine does. i was told by tech that some toshiba lapptops have this isue apparently the cable to the lcd is not connecting properly
