Hello I am in need of help right now. So my laptop, Toshiba Satellite S70T-a, has recently had lots of red pixels on certain colours only. When searching for black, pitch black is normal whilst some blacks have lots of red pixels. I don't know how to fix this and need your help. I would go to a laptop repairer but it's too expensive for my family so I am trying to find ways to fix this. You can see this on discord easily as there's lots of red on the left side but not the right.

I can't see it, and using red as your redacting color makes it well-nigh impossible to distinguish.

If you post another image, use black for the redaction color, or dark gray, not red.

What Windows are you running (I'd presume either 8.1 or 10) and have you gone to the support pages for your machine and checked out what drivers may need to be updated.

I see there are some, and a Toshiba System Driver update was released in June of 2018.

If there's a more recent UEFI/BIOS update, that should be applied, too.

I'm currently running windows 10 and on the toshiba page (https://support.dynabook.com/support/driversOSResults?freeText=1200012825 ) I have downloaded the following drivers:

And the red pixels are still there. I'm not sure what to do.
