I've been encouraged to post here re: my hardware travails!
I booted up my older Toshiba laptop running Windows 7 which for years had
been working fine.
Then, one day I booted up and got these vertical color bands where you
couldn't see anything else bu the bands.
I then re-booted and opened Word 2003 (as Libre Office take a longer time
to open and the laptop would just shut Word

Publisher, GIMP, the Brave browser running a YouTube video and another
program to test the laptop and it all worked fine.
Thanks for your thoughts/ suggestions.
