    intermittent pixels LCD stands for liquid crystalized display and that is because pixels have a liquid crystal in them. , Black would of meant that there is no light going through any of the RGB pixels on that area or effectively dead pixels and green is going to mean only green is working.

    they are probably dying or the backlight for those pixels are is dying not much you can do about it unless you want to open the computer and inspect the pcb around where the laptop folds as it could be connection issue i would guess the pixels are dying in that area though.

    Once they die that is it though need a replacement screen or just live with it.

    i don't really know much about computer screens in this regard but i used to work on LED screen displays in multimeda A/V and its the same concept in the former usually pixels are banked so that area is probably on the same bank. I assume there is probably people out there that could fix it but its probably not worth the cost.

    I don't think it's worth it......it is the oldest of the three Toshiba Satellite's, and is only used as a spare if the main one plays up......it has long had a dead battery, and only works with the power chord plugged in......having said that, it does run rather well......Thanks for the replies....

    Basically that is either dead pixels or possibly a loose connection to the display panel.

    There are no new drivers from Toshiba/Dynabook, those faded out about 8 years ago. There will only be one driver listed probably for Windows 8, subsequent Graphics driver updates have come from Windows updates.

    "there are quite a few driver updates available.....is it good practice to install ALL of them".

    If you are refering to via Windows updates, yes. However that should have been done over the years.

    "and the solid black line has now changed to a faint broken line, and turned GREEN.....weird or what ?"

    Nothing weird as the sub pixels are red/green/blue. Thus it means red and blue sub pixels are faulty thus only green showing.

    The no cost option is to open up the Laptop and check on Display connectors.

    An expensive display panel replacement for such an old Laptop is not really worth it.
