Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite M30 Notebook ?

Laptop display is split both horizontally and vertically in WinXP

\015 The computer is a Toshiba P20 laptop. \015\012\015\012When I boot up, where I should be reading the Manfactures name, it seems like the screen is black screen. But what is really happening is that the display is overlapping itself. So the empty space on the right side of the screen during bootup is now on top of the left side of the screen, so I can see anything. \015\012\015\012I say that it's over lapping because when it does go to Windows XP, I can see that the "tray" from the task bar which is normally on the right bottom corner, is now on the left side where the start up menu should be. So, it seems like the screen is split. But it is also split horizontally, where the top of the desktop screen is now showing two inches from the bottom of the screen. Needless to say, it's been a challenge manuvering around the computer when I can't see the start button or the Start menu.\015\012\015\012\015\012 I have tried updating the BIOS and Video drivers. Nothing seems to work. Help!\015
