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?

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.

I tried all these codes and they didnt work, any suggestions? i have office student 2007


I would recommend using Libre Office as a free solution.  It will read and write documents in Microsoft formats and is based on over 10 years of use and updates from Star Office which became Open Office. 
 The program was adopted by Sun Microsystems and eventually became an Oracle product.  The newest iteration is Libre Office.  http://www.libreoffice.org/download/ or  http://bit.ly/gM6iQb

Dell Latituse D600 display goes dark


Hello,

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.

The screen goes very dark within a minute after booting up = I can just barely see the menu page


When you say screen goes very dark when it booted to windows so it means that when you turned on the laptop when the dell logo flashes the screen was fine? if thats the case could you please try this. after turning on the laptop you will see the dell logo flashes immediately keep tapping on F2 and then it will show you the BIOS setup utility, please check if in BIOS setup display goes dark as well. If yes then try this, after turning on the computer when dell logo flashes keep tapping on F12 to boot menu then select utility partition to run the diagnostics. Please run test on the LCD check if display goes black when running the LCD test. Then try this when you sees the dell logo keep tapping on F8 to boot in safe mode check if in safe mode display goes very dark. Try this too, boot in F8 then select last known good configuration check if the settings on your display will be fix. If you can boot to safe mode no problem then uninstall the display or video driver. then restart computer.
You can also try to connect an external monitor if you have one just try to isolate if issue is on the LCD or the video card. If the display is dark as well in external monitor then video card needs to be reseated if fails then replaced. In situation like this most video cards is integrated to the motherboards. So replace motherboard.

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.

Problems with my laptop


I think it has to do with your video cardsettings.I suggest u should get knoppix live cd which is downloadable free from the net.You then try to boot your computer using knoppix cd by changing your boot options to booting from cd.You enter the boot options by pressing down one of the function keys depending on your computer make.If u are able to boot in to knoppix you can access your video card and then resety it.
