Having problems with your Toshiba Qosmio G15 Notebook ?

Lines on Toshiba Laptop

\015 Lines on screen\015

Answers :

I have the F15-AV201 (purchased in 2005) and it had the vertical lines on the display (appeared six months ago). This is a defect, on the nVidia graphics chip.
\015\012
\015\012Since the chip is soldered on to the system or mother board, the only fix is to replace the entire system board.
\015\012
\015\012I called Toshiba around April 10, 2009. The person I talked to was in the Philippines. Oh, the number was 800.457.7777, then at the first prompt press #1, #3 then #1 (rather than waiting for each prompt.)
\015\012
\015\012Told them the model number and that I heard Toshiba was replacing the system board at no charge. I called it the "Northstar System Board Replacement Program." He looked up my serial number info and said that it qualified for the "SYSTEM BOARD ENHANCEMENT PROGRAM."
\015\012
\015\012He sent me a UPS prepaid box, sent the notebook in, got it back about seven days later! It had an updated system board that included a better nVidia graphics chip. A system check indicates it has the GeForce Go 6600.
\015\012
\015\012Note: I did not have to argue with the CSR, it's like they are told not to argue and simply arrange for the repair. Cool.
\015\012Note: I got the notebook with Windows XP and all original software installed. It's like they used the System Recovery disks to reinstall everything.
\015\012
\015\012I did include a post-it note saying that the OS was messed up. Also, included with the return were two CDs that contained drivers and applications that are in comport with the new system board. The instructions said to install XP with my old recovery CD, but for all other drivers and apps, to use the two disks they sent me.
\015\012
\015\012So cool that Toshiba is doing the right thing and fixing these at no cost to us.
