My Toshiba laptop screen has been jumping for a while and I was able to push on the screen and make it stop, but yesterday, I turned my laptop on and it wouldn't stop jumping, and then it went completely black and won't come back on, what is the reason for this and what can I do to fix it?

Jumping? Could you explain that in more detail?

Have you tried hooking your notebook up to an external monitor?

jumping, like the screen was messing up and lines were covering it to the point i couldn't see anything. Yeah, i hooked it up to an external monitor, i got the xp splash screen, but it wouldnt boot any farther, just restart from there

Either a virus or a video malfunction. Try taking out your hard disk and booting to a live CD of a linux distro and see if the problem continues.
