Sure..that can be connected, and then accessed with Fn(bottom left near space bar) and usually F7 even though it may be different on yours..look for the one that shows a monitor in blue..that should do it..

On add and remove I accidently removed something and now my monitor doesn't work. I can hear it. I just can't remeber what I removed. There is so much in there I was trying to get some of it off....


1st things 1st. when you turn on your laptop at first boot do you see any boot up screen at all or is it completely black? if you still have a black screen ,try hooking up your laptop to your desktop monitor. if it works fine ,then your laptop screen back light or inverter went bad

Toshiba screen is blank ans light on under F10 key.


Is the screen completely blank, or just dim? If it is dim, then most likely your lcd power inverter is bad, and needs to be replaced, which is the cheapest part to replace. If it is completely blank then you should try to hook up an external monitor to the laptop, and don't get any video, then most likely there is an issue with your motherboard or video card. The external monitor method sometimes needs you to press a combination of the Fn key and another F key in order to switch from your laptop lcd to an external monitor.

Can't connect to external monitor or to Sony bravia tv. When vga connected nothing happens at all on laptop but external monitor says " check cable" ( have tried another cable ). If connected in power off...


You need to:

- Connect everything with the laptop turned off
- Boot the laptop
- Use the Fn key plus F8 or F9 (I'm trying from a small picture of the keyboard!) to cycle through the external display options.

I have a toshiba satellite laptop the screen is black


Shutting the computer down could be done by holding the Power Switch down for 10 seconds, rather than unplug/no battery "solution". A blank screen is more often than not caused by the failure of the screen's backlight. Plugging an external monitor in the ext monitor port would verify the computer still works, and I am sure it does.

Acer aspire 5310 the screen just blank and not


Possibly the monitor is defective - usually most laptops have a blue plug at the back for an external monitor, if plugging in a normal monitor brings up a screen, then likely the laptop monitor is defective. If you get a splash screen and bios info on trying to start it,it indicates your windows is defective or has lost it's start-up files - a windows reinstall will fix that.

Toshiba a105 screen goes blank


Sounds like GPU failure. unfortunately its nigh on impossible to replace without replacing the whole board which can be expensive. I saw a few on ebay for around £120.
