Re: fix laptop Toshiba
Hi Towboatdaddy -
The black and white wires usually go to the wireless card, which is usually in a socket on most of the laptops that I have worked on. The wires have a little round part at the end of each wire that snaps onto the wireless card

No. You may have to replace the screen because the white lights used for the screen cannot be separated from the rest of the screen. Replacing the screen is not a daunting job. You can get replacement screens online by googling "laptop replacement screens". You will find many places to shop.
Just an idea - could you have by mistake changed the video to work with an outside monitor? If, for example, you hit the Fn key and the F5 key (at least on my Toshiba), it changes the video display to work with an external monitor instead of the one on the laptop. So you would see nothing on your laptop.
Your screen is shot or partially disconnected. A lot of laptops have the vid card to lcd connect in bracket that connects the screen to the keyboard. I have fixed many by siimply taking it apart and reconnecting the clip but the spots dont sound good. Ebay to buy one or Cl to dump it as a fixer. Either way its a waste of money to have someone fix it for you unless you do it yourself.
In my opinion if you have black and white screen internal and external screen while booting and while you are into windows desktop you have a faulty graphic card. Common fault on toshiba laptops.
Actualy the reason for their sales drops dramaticaly in the past few years ;)
next to the F1 key and the windows key (2nd upper key and second to last key) are two screws, usually under some covering. unscrew and lift top edge of the keyboard towards the trackpad to lay face down. Undo the wire ribbon by lifting the grey or brown tabs and remove ribbon and keyboard. Then install the new keyboard by inserting the ribbon on the place. Lock down with the tabs and put the plastic prongs (close to the space bar) into the laptop body first, and then close keyboard onto the final position. screw back in and thats all. email@example.com for any additional questions.
THe shutting down is your laptop's thermal protection. It is trying to keep the CPU from being destroyed. You should stop using it until you fix it, or you will destroy it.
The fans are not hard to replace and toshiba disassembly is fairly straight forward. Just get your #1 and #2 phillips head screw drivers and pay attention to how you take it apart.
Call Toshiba and order replacement fans for your laptop as they will not set you back very much.
