Question about Toshiba Satellite M100 Notebook
The LCD display in a laptop connect to the screen via a ribbon like cable which is not very secure.
It can happen that over time that the ribbon cable become dislodged by slightly rough handling or vibrations etc. the reasons are infinite, but we arent worried about the why but the how :)
it is quite possible the display is faulty, but if you are brave place the laptopn on a rubber mat of some sort ( car floor mat ??? ), on a table, place a bright lamp close by and open the casing on the bottom first, then turn it and remove the keyboard, look for a ribbon cable coming from the screen that inserts onto the main board. it should be easy to see.
If you arent prepared for this, ask someone you know to do this for you... the cable simply pushes into the slot where it belongs,
this abov e is at your own risk though, be careful of static since this could damage the components ( hence the rubber mat )....
