You got a bad inverter and replaced it with another bad one. What can I say??? Just because some yahoo! sold you an inverter doesn't mean it's any good-er (or better) than your existing one. Got it?

Screen gone dim


The "back-light" on your LCD screen has failed.
It's about a $20 part that needs to be replaced, but you should pay a qualified technician for one hour's labour to disassemble your computer, replace the part, and reassemble your computer, and test it. $60/hour ???

I have a toshiba tecra 8100 which has a display problem.On servicing they told me that the motherboard has to be replaced and since this was an old model it was very difficult to obtain it.can you please...


If your display problem is the screen going dark at random - the most frequently encountered problem with this series - then it's the LCD inverter board - a $5 to $10 part that you can buy on eBay to get it resolved.

Since you didn't state the specific problem, I'll go with the percentage play...

MY TOSHIBA TECRA 8100 PENTUP3 LAPTOP mAINBOARD IS DAMAGE, I NEED A NEW MAINBOARD TO REPAIR THE LAPTOP.


Unless you have sentimental attachment to that PC , you may want to look into upgrading.

All the spare part vendors want lots of money for a replacement.

Your best bet would be ebay. They have a couple listed for $13 to $34 + shipping.

I'm not clear on your description, so here goes:

If it showed the Toshiba start screen, then asked for a password, then your hard drive is password protected.

If it showed the Toshiba screen, then asked for password, and you entered it, and then it goes "insert disk", then your hard drive is passworded and wiped.

If the first thing it does is ask for a password, then the password is in the BIOS.

Blank screen


COuld be a simple case of the screen catch hole where the lid locks shut getting stuck (fluff ?) jab it a few times with a paperclip. Worked wonders on an old tecra I had. If it is not this it may well be the inverter which needs changing - this is a kind of starter / voltage regulator fot the FL tube.
