Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook

1 Answer

The screen is too dark

My laptop became wet in a rainstorm when the roof in my office leaked. I have been able to get the laptop to boot now and still have some slight problems like the number eight does not function. But the major problem is the screen is very dark and what is displayed is barley visible. I was able to hook up another monitor and can see what is displayed on the 2nd monitor. I have tried changing the brightness but it has no effect and the screen remains almost black with the information on the screen barely visible. The laptop became wet 3 days ago. It was not completed soaked but very damp with some areas wetter due to dripping. Help!

    I have a Gateway laptop
    display problem. When I first turn the laptop on, I see the Gateway logo boot screen for just about one second, then the display immediately goes dim, not completely black, but so dim you can't use it. Other than that, the laptop is functioning OK. I was convinced the "backlight" had gone bad, but that initial boot screen pops up each time, so I'm stumped. Any ideas?

How do I find where the leak is in my roof flashing?

If you can't see where the leak is coming from exactly you can start from where you think the leak is and lift the roof shingles if its the right place you will start to find mold under them and that's where you should start fixing the roof.

It was working good all of sudden screen became black and the PXE E61

It seems to have lost communication with the hard drive. Check physically (pop out and then back in) and in BIOS. Make sure its the 1st boot option.

Also disable PXE boot in BIOS or remove from 1st boot option. This is a LAN (network) boot option.

Hi I have a 2000 mercedes benz 320clk. Today for the first time the top wont go down and the red light is blinking on the button. Any ideas why???

if the light keep blinking it meat all the status for operating not complete could be one thing wrong, first need to be check separating lid in boot if it's properly close and also try 3-4 time that because some time the boot separation lid recognizing switch is not functioning, second step have a look any oil leaking on your roof if it's leaking you can see wet mark on your hood trim, and also have a look too small flaps at both coner between roof and front end of boot lid if the flaps are not close properly do it by hand and try, this is the only thing you can check, most common problems are oil leaking from hydraulic cylinders and boot separation contact switch or corner flaps, if not work any thing you have to get your car in to the Mercedes workshop for diagnose, is this information helped you?

Dell Latituse D600 display goes dark


The picture board on your monitor is faulty or bad, since it goes black after few seconds, it means the picture board of your laptop has developed fault.

The best thing for you to do now is to take the laptop to a local repairer within your vicinity to help with the replacement of the picture board because the fault is not something you can fix yourself. in order not to complicate issues.

Take care.

Sudenly the screen went black but in first sight the screen became with stripes/colors liners

The most likely culprit is your inverter. Most black or dark screens are caused by a faulty inverter. In rare cases (about 10%) the screen or backlight needs to be replaced.
