Question about Toshiba Satellite M30 Notebook
I am having display trouble with my Toshiba M30. This is going to be long so I apologize upfront. The display on the screen was first really enlarged and out of whack. Sometimes I would see weird white lines across the screen. I remember picking up my laptop with the screen once, and this happened exactly after that.
I thought of resetting the video cable, did that, and while assembling the display, managed to cut the sensor switch cable, upon which, there was no display at all. With a lot of trouble, found a replacement switch and managed to power the screen back again. At first everything looked fine, but then the problems started happening again. I was able to use the display, but every now and then, the screen would get botched up; show enlarged display; would take longer to load new windows; the screen would not turn on if I restarted the computer (i would have to wait for a day to power it again); the screen would flicker every 5-8 seconds.
I reinstalled the video drivers, even replaced the LCD cable, but a few days later, the screen completely shut off. Now, It doesn't power on at all, and if it use an external monitor, it behaves the same way as mentioned above.
I am at a loss for what's wrong here...Plzzzzzzz help!!
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.
