Toshiba Sat. L675d-S7052
Posted on 2013-06-20
Hey experts. Here is a riddle I haven't figured out. A buddy has a Toshiba Satellite L675D-S7052 that he powers off every night and turns it back on every morning. It sits on his desk and there isn't any visible damage that I can see anywhere on the laptop. Starting about 6 weeks ago, when the computer would boot up, the screen turns white with a few thin lines running vertically showing up. Sometimes the Toshiba screen appears, sometimes the issue starts right off the bat. Eventually the white screen and lines disappear and the screen is at a random point (Windows splash screen or Windows login screen). The amount of time the white screen with vertical lines is displayed seems to be random but it seems to be getting longer and longer.
Before I have him investing in a new LCD, I figured I would see if this was a common issue with this laptop and what suggestions might be made to resolve this. Thanks in advance.
