Question about Toshiba Satellite P10 Notebook
If the screen was working and now failed, then it's either the screen itself that's gone bad, or the ribbon cable connection has come loose, which can happen (it happened on my Sony VAIO).
If it's under warranty, let the mfr. fix it on their dime. If it's an older, well-used system, then it may be more likely the display has finally gone out.
If you feel comfortable cracking the case, which can be tricky, go for it. If not, it may be worth getting it checked out quickly by a professional. If it's just the ribbon cable, then re-seating it into the connector will do the trick.
If it's the display, then you have the option of using an external monitor (which pretty much kills the portability), replacing the display, or the entire laptop. These days, it's sometimes cheaper to get a new notebook than it is to replace an older display.
I hope this helps!
