You have Number Lock set on your PC - Have a look for a key top right hand side, it will have something like NumLck written on the KEY - you may need to use that Key in combination with the FN key - bottom left of keyboard - there should be a light somewhere on the keyboard which goes on/off as you toggle the NumLck key.
You should see different coloured numbers on the key s*()UIOPJKLM
These are the numbers and symbols that will be displayed when the NumLock is used

Need help in formatting or recovery the os.... can
If you have the original OS disks, you can boot to the CD drive and install a fresh copy of Windows XP. One of the steps will ask you if you want to keep the existing Operating system. If you decline and install the OS the next step will ask if you want to format using NTFS. This step will format the drive and then reinstall the OS.
I hope this is what you were looking for. Thanks for using FixYa.

My Toshiba Portege R200-S2031 LCD display has
First, give the screen a good cleaning using a microfiber cloth. This may inadvertently remove the lines even though they are in the display.
If this doesn't work, you'll have to send the laptop back for repairs. Screens are not a component that can be replaced easily (such as RAM or a hard drive).
If your laptop is not under warranty, scope out some local computer shops that can replace the display for you. Make sure to ask them for a quote BEFORE they do work on your computer, otherwise they have the right to deny you your laptop, once they fix it, until you pay up (a possibly very nasty price).
