Question about Toshiba Satellite M100 Notebook

1 Answer

White screen my laptop screen just turns white when i turn it on. i can hear everything fine, its just the screen. a week ago it was black with a faint picture ( just the backlight wasnt on), but now its a whitish/grey color. Last time the backlight failed i took it into get fixed and they replaced the converter and the main cord leading into the screen, but i noticed 2 weeks later the screen began to flicker at times, and when i took it into them the second time, when it turned black, they said the screen must be faulty and its going to cost 800 dollars to replace it. This doesnt seem right though, ive only had the laptop for nearly 2 yrs. please help. the model is M100

    My Dell Latitude 500/600 has the same problem with a white screen. I plug another monitor into it and everything is fine. One of the screen brackts broke and it took some time to get another one from Japen. Could I have caused the Flex Cable to break? I checked all the connections of the cable and eerything is ok

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 )....

WHITE SCREEN ON SAMSUNG LAPTOP


Prior to the Windows splash screen do you see graphical issues ( black background, white writing, or bios splash screen) if you don't then the problem is with windows and will need to be reinstalled. Samsung ship laptops with a windows cd and is a fairly basic wizard. If you don't know how to do this google is full of guides. If you however see graphical problems right from turning the laptop on then there is likely to be a hardware fault straight from the factory. Contact Samsung and they will repair / replace the laptop through warranty. I have seen several Samsung laptops brand new from the box do this and It turned out to be a hardware issue and was replaced on warranty. Good luck.

Blank white screen in my Acer Travelmate 5730 Laptop


Hello Karthik,
This must surely be a problem with your monitor, because you say that you see the white screen while boot up. If this is a graphic driver issue, you may have the problem after booting up in windows. Since its been only a month old laptop, the product must be in warranty for sure. Take away any CDs in the drive, any USB drives and see if this white screen appears. Let us know.

Thank you!

My laptop display only shows half a screen. The rest shows a white background with thin black lines. I can attach an external monitor and see everything without an issue.


i have solve the problem for my hp nx7300. mine used to show everything that should be shown on the screen but had the screen placed in a Conner so small. i solved this by uninstalling the monitor and unknown device drivers. i have then installed the unknown device as a blue-tooth adapter to avoid this problem recurring. hope this sorts out some people's problem. the other half screen with half completely not shown has to do with the cable connecting the monitor and the CPU. remember solving this for my friend by cleaning the connection port.

I dropped my laptop and now the screen is messed up.


Ack. Sounds like you might need to replace your screen (sounds pricey but is cheaper than a new laptop). You can find second hand/refurbished screens or another Aspire with a working screen being sold for parts on Ebay or here

On a side note, if you a have a PC monitor lying around, you can access your files by hooking it up to your laptop via the dvi slot. Granted, it seems a bit ghetto but its a quick fix until you get something more permanent.

I recently broke my iPhone screen and completely shattered a dell laptop a few years ago. You know all those people who are adamant about you buying proper carrying/protective cases? Screw 'em.
