    Hi,
    I've been given a Toshiba Satellite M70 Laptop.. I've been given this laptop because the internal screen isn't working.. so wanting some opinions.

    The screen lights up, but doesn't display a picture - instead just random vertical & horizontal lines. I think its probably going to be the LCD panel, I've reseated the cable at both ends but didn't make a difference.

    Just wondering what other people think.. I just don't want to order a replacement panel if someone thinks it might be the mainboard for example.

    Well, the first thing I would do is plug an external monitor to it and see what comes up. Toshibas have a diagnosis function that you can run if you hit F8 at startup. Choose the test and let see if it finds any problems with the onboard screen.

    Whoops sorry meant to say that I'd tested it with an external screen and that was ok. I didn't know about the F8 function tho.. might give that a shot.
