Toshiba M30 display problem

Hello, I am having problems with my Toshiba Sattelite M30. When I start it up, it's OK, I can see Toshiba picture with info to get to BIOS and Centrino logo as well. But when it passes this part it shows random characters and that's all I can see. Can you help?

    I have exactly the same problem .. Spurious characters all over the screen during boot up and then no video.

    My LCD screen lid has become progressivley loose over the last couple of years. I thought this may have been the problem as the fault is intermittant and changes with moving the lid. I have bought a new Toshiba Satellite as they are generally very good computers. Would love to fix this one though.

    Probable causes: bad RAM or overheating. Does the fan work?

Hi,
I had same problem with my Sattelite L300. Motherboard has a defect in one Proadlizer film capacitor exactly on the back of CPU, the original ref. is nec-tokin 0E907 (900uF/2.5V) or similar code. I've replaced it by 4 tantalum capacitores of 470uF/2.5V each and 2 capacitores of 220uF/2.5V, all in paralell mode in same old place of nec-tokin component.
Vote for me... :)3_10_2012_6_45_55_pm.jpg

Toshiba Satellite M30 display problem


I decided to read this and I am not exactly 100 sure what the proplem is. I did want to offer a suggestion though. If you are having problems with both the screen and an external monitor, the problem may be with the graphics hardware. If you have a card, it may need to be replaced. If not, i'm very sorry. The motherboard may need to be replaced. Hope this helps.
