Hi.
What is happening is the settings that you have set on your laptop are too high for the monitor to recognize.
You will need to reduce the resolution settings in you display properties which can be found by going to start-settings-control panel- display- and in the display area choose settings.
Some video cards will let you adjust each item. Some you have to use the same resolution on both screens.
Shout if you need furthur input !

    The AL1916W will only accept up to 1440x900 resolution. 1920x1200 is too high !!

    LOWER THE RESOLUTION ON THE LAPTOP if you can not adjust the two separately in the display settings.

I would like to boot a toshiba satellite m105-s30401 with an external monitor as the laptop screen is busted and i would like to use an external monitor until i get a replacement screen, how do i get


Connecting an External Monitor or Data Projector
You can switch to an external monitor or data projector by two methods. 1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor. 2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key a few times. Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :- IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7 HP and Compaq = Fn + F4 Toshiba = Fn + F5 Dell = Fn + F8

The monitor on my Toshiba P25-S5093 does not have any display of any kind; all black. I have display using external monitor.


Hi,
Does the display show anything before you enter windows? If yes, then press the key to transfer video back to your original screen once you enter windows. It should be the function key "Fn" + F5 - F8. looks for the icon which shows a monitor or says "CRT/LCD".
If it doesn't show anything before you enter windows I'm afraid your screen needs to be replaced. Good luck.

Hello My Toshiba Satellite a75 s229 Notebook Screen is Black and Glass inside screen looks cracked. Laptop fell 3'' ft. off table onto carpeted floor. Laptop powers up fine and I can hear windows start up...


Hi there,

The way to find out if it's just the screen is to connect the laptop to an external monitor. Pay attention to the F keys when you connect the laptop. On most Toshibas, you'll see a small depiction on the F5 key of a laptop next to a monitor. You either have to press that key alone, or hold down the fn key and then press the F5 key and let go to transfer the signal to the external monitor.

If the external monitor shows up good and you can perform all other functions on your laptop while viewing the monitor, you need only replace the laptop LCD. If it does not display correctly, then you're into the next round of troubleshooting.

Hope it works as above.

Good Luck

Toshiba Satellite M300 screen problem


Hi, I can't guaranty this will help the problem, but for a quick try I say its worth it. On the Desktop, right click to open Personalize, select Display Settings; by adjusting the resolution it helps with the "Flicker effect" aswell, by selecting different settings, you can "view" the best Monitor Display. "If the solution helped, rating it is appreciated, thanks."

My Toshiba Satellite A105 screen comes on for a little bit, flickers and then shuts off. However I can faintly see the screen, and the laptop works fine when hooked up to the external monitor. Wondering...


If you can still view screen if you view it in an angle or spot a flashlight on screen. Then, definitely it is a problem on backlighting, might be loose connection, inverter giving up or cfl giving up.

Hope this helps

MY SATELLITE A505 HAS A DISPLAY PROBLEM


Does the Toshiba appear to bootup and the hard disk LED is flashing?
Can you see a dim image when you view the LCD screen at a sharp angle?
Connect an external monitor to the external video port and power up the external monitor first and then the Toshiba, if you get a nornal image on the external monitor the the video card is OK and the fault is the LCD screen. The problem could be the CCFL lamp or the inverter.
Get back to me with the result of these test and I can advise what to do next..

Display


If you've got exacttly the same each time you're start, then the VGA card has issue, or even the motherboard and CPU.

If not then try to chock the base of the screen with two fingers when starting, if nothing happen try to chock the middle of the keyboard and several spot around it. (it's a little bit brutal but the easiest way to find a bad contact or dead components)

Toshiba Satellite p300 with Toshiba dynadock


Hi Yarno,

One question, are you using Adobe Type Manager? Adobe Type Manager is not compatible with multiple display support. When Adobe Type Manager is installed, multiple display support is disabled. Go to start>control panel>add/remove programs>currently installed programs, choose atm and click remove. You may be asked to restart click yes. See if this resolves your issue. I hope this helps a little.

Thank you for using FixYa.com
