There is a switch that controls the on/off of display when the lid is opened or closed. Sometimes it's located near the hinges. Perhaps it's been damaged, loose, dirty, etc. Unplug, remove battery, plug in, reboot.

What causes laptos to not show display despite showing that they have switched on?


Step 1:
The display on your laptop is the interface through which you interact with and control your computer. If it is not working, your laptop will become virtually impossible to use. A laptop is a computer, and like all computers is subject to both hardware and software problems that may affect the display. Before taking your laptop in for repair or getting rid of it, you should first check the display yourself to see if it needs to be replaced.

Check the laptop's battery and power cord. If the laptop is out of power, the display will not work. This usually happens if the power cord is unplugged and you were unknowingly running your laptop on battery power. Check to make sure the power cord is plugged in and that the laptop has power. Many laptops also turn off the display if it is being powered by its battery after a period of nonuse. Touching any key will usually turn the display back on if the battery is not drained. Restart your computer. If a software program is stuck or malfunctioning, it may cause your display to stop functioning. Press and hold the "Power" button on your laptop to reboot your computer. If the problem was a malfunctioning program, the display will turn on after the computer restarts. Check the brightness level of the display. If the level is too low, the screen will appear dark. The brightness controls are usually located on two function keys, such as "F9" and "F10." Look for sun or light icons on the keys. Press the key with the larger icon to increase the brightness level. Alternatively, on some laptops hold the "Fn" key while simultaneously pressing the "Up Arrow" key to increase the screen brightness. Check the display closed switch. Many laptops have a small button that senses when the LCD screen is closed and puts the laptop in sleep or hibernation mode. If the switch gets clogged with dirt, it may get stuck in the closed position. This will result in dark display even when the lid is open. The switch is usually located near the hinges of the lid. Spray the switch with a can of compressed air to loosen the dirt so that it will resume its normal operation. Plug an external monitor into your laptop. If the problem is not software related, the external monitor will display the laptop's screen. Connect the monitor by plugging the cable into the VGA, HDMI or DVI port on the laptop. Press and hold the "Fn" key while simultaneously pressing the "F8" key. The video output will be directed to the external monitor if there is a hardware problem.

Display inop 4th light on base doesnt stay on


Do you get the Toshiba logo? before it goes black, if that is so the hard drive is more than likely the problem, first! remove the hard drive and reseat it back in place, sometimes this will restart the hardware, if no change! have it tested.

Hi i have an apple display connected to my macbook


Unplug the display from your macbook, and restart your macbook, when it's fully restarted and you are logged in, plug the display back in, then check to see if it is detected. Macbooks don't like to be put to sleep (shutting the lid) with a display connected, this causes issues with display detection. So always unplug your display and wait about 5 seconds before closing the lid on your macbook, and when you open the lid, wait another 5 seconds before plugging in your display. The only time it is acceptable to leave the display plugged in when you close the lid is when you plan to use the macbook in clamshell mode, this is done by plugging in and configuring your display, shutting the lid, and then "waking" the macbook from sleep mode with an external mouse (wired or wireless will work). That will start the macbook using the external display as the main display, without even turning on the macbook built-in display. Never connect or disconnect an external display when your macbook is off or in sleep mode. Have a nice day.

My Laptop will not Stand-By


There are 3 parts to standby. Your version of windows must support it. You have the utility enabled and working. The display switch must be operating.

If you have checked the power utility setting and are sure they are right and the utility is installed operating right then your problem is the lid switch.

On some models you can see it under or along the bottom edge of the screen. To check if it is working use something like a tooth pick to depress the switch. The display should at least blink out when fully closed. If you can't find it or get at it you can close the display and try to spot any light coming from the screen. It should be easy to see but if nothing else try a dark room. The display should go dark as the lid closes fully. It will be pretty close to when its down so can be hard to see when.

If the display is working after you close then the switch needs replacement. If it goes dark then I would reinstall the power utility as something may have got corrupted.

I need the drivers to down grade from vista to win xp on a satellite x205-s9359


Here is a link to a lot of them

http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=SB&os=&category=&moid=1757703&rpn=PSPB9U&modelFilter=X205-S9359&selCategory=3&selFamily=1073768663&selModel=1757703%7CPSPB9U

but there is no display driver or wireless driver included. Depending on which devices ( of these two ) you have, you will have to try to go to that mfgs web site to see if they have the XP drivers.

Good luck with this, as it can be a trying experience.

Laptop goes dark


You can refer to this document for display assembly. It looks like the display is going bad. By checking the seating of the display cable, you're isolating the fact that the cable is connected.

Screen/ video display is dark.


Sounds like a backlight or inverter problem or both. Most likely the backlight in the display panel. Unless you know how to open your laptop and if needed the and the display panel I would take it in to a professional. If you are able to do it yourself you can make sure that everything is plugged in properly. And test the components inside. You can replace these parts which are not very expensive. But if you have not be inside a laptop I would take it into a local shop for repair.
