Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition
My toshiba laptop screen sudenly turn black color and i dont kno what to do
Connect an external monitor (crt or flat panel monitor) at the back of your laptop and see if the display is fine. if the display is fine on the monitor then it means to say that the lcd backlight is not working properly.

I Had the same problem yesterday but i was able to fix it. What i did was to replace the back light. I also have a Toshiba laptop.(L35-S2173). What i did was to open the screen and to solder in a new Backlight. they cost only 10-15 dollars, which is much better compared to the $425 dollars that Toshiba was charging to repair an out of warranty Laptop. Most of the time, a bad backlight is what causes a dark screen, though it could be worse, like The Inverter could be bad, which would turn off the screen also.
To find some guides on how to Open up a toshiba laptop, visit this website http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2006/02/04/toshiba-laptop-disassembly-manuals/
And also visit this website to find out about Backlights and Inverters http://www.ccfldirect.com/
BUT WAIT, HERE IS SOMETHING THAT OCCURS MOST OF THE TIME, PEOPLE TEND TO DISABLE THERE LAPTOP SCREENS. YOU CAN ENABLE IT BY PRESSING Fn and F3 AT THE SAME TIME.(Fn+F3). IT WILL COME BACK UP BRIGHTLY. ANOTHER WAY PEOPLE DISABLE IT IS BY GOING INTP THEIR BIOS( BASIC INPUT OUTPUT SYSTEM) SETTINGS. IN A TOSHIBA LAPTOP, MOST OF WHICH USE PHOENIX AWARD BIOS, BOOT UP THE LAPTOP, THEN GO INTO THE BIOS SETTINGS BY PRESSING F2. THEN SCROLL LEFT USING THE ARROW KEYS TO THE POWER SETTINGS THEN ENABLE THE "POWER ON DISPLAY" OPTION. OH AND TO DO ALL OF THIS TO SEE IT, YOU MAY HAVE TO CONNECT THE LAPTOP TO ANOTHER SCREEN.
