Toshiba P20 video chip broken

Got a great portable pc with two year waranty. Main board was changed once halfway under waranty which is expired by now and same problem appear just few months after waranty: main board ( K000014060 ) must be replaced to run pc wrote the dealer.
I heard that nvidia geforce fx go 5700 chip could be replaced only, to avoid my expenses. But this chip is nowhere to buy, while a friend radioamateur is capable to replace it, if i provide him a new chip.
Can this be true, can the chip be resolderd on main board?
And who can provide this older type chip?

Best regards

If your friend is REALLY REALLY good with soldering circuit boards, it is possible to replace just the chip.

As far as getting the chip, have fun. You can try to contact nvidia and explain the situation and see if they can get you the chip special ordered, but I wouldn't count on it. There may be so rare dealer out there that may have a new chip but as far as I know, you aren't going to find one. I guess the other option is that you could contact different circuit repair and computer repair shops to see if they have any ties to someone who can get you this chip.

Here's my honest opinion though. For the time, effort, and money that you would have to put into finding, ordering, and replacing the chip (which I may add, this is an extremely unrecommended process, because one little mistake could fry the motherboard for good or the whole computer) you will probably be better off just getting a new board. This would be about the only way to obtain the chip anyway and it would be pointless to take it off and stick it on another.

Basically it comes down to this. It is probable that it can work. I would recommend getting a new board.

The monitor on my Toshiba P25-S5093 does not have any display of any kind; all black. I have display using external monitor.

Does the display show anything before you enter windows? If yes, then press the key to transfer video back to your original screen once you enter windows. It should be the function key "Fn" + F5 - F8. looks for the icon which shows a monitor or says "CRT/LCD".
If it doesn't show anything before you enter windows I'm afraid your screen needs to be replaced. Good luck.

Black Screen on laptop start up. Makes a slight noise after pushing start button but screen never changes from black and eventually the light on the power up key goes out. We checked the hard drive and...


There seem to be a problem with the module of the laptop, that is why you are having a black screen through out the boothing process of the laptop.

The module is the chip that allows information from the main board reach the screen.

The hardwares would be working perfectly fine, but since the module is having problems, the screen will not light up, and the computer can go off after boothing.

Have the module checked and replaced and your laptop will be in good condition once again.

Good luck.

Laptop screen goes white

Hi there Try to connect it to an external monitor and see how it goes. If the problem stays, that mean your video chip is probably defective. bad news since it's integrated in the main board. Replacement of this is costly. Unless it's still under waranty of course. If not, that means your inverter is probably defective and needs to be replaced.

Troubleshooting main board.

Three things to look for in service with LCD monitors,
1 bad capacitors
2 Bad transistors for the back light feeds
3 bad ic pulse chips for the Non function circuit
you will not find schematics unless you peruse the patent office records, reverse engineer the circuits and you will have a schematic
when the main chip fails on the vga board its time to buy a new vga video board,
sounds like your board may be suffering a bad IC telling the main chip the power is OK

let me know how it goes.

Very wierd Toshiba video problem

Hello techman2429m, It looks like you may have a color convergence problem. when you dropped the TV the convergence/purity rings on the neck of the tube may have shifted or by changing parts you may have thrown off the convergence. I would suggest using a pattern generator and adjusting convergence also adjusting the purity settings. This I believe will clear up your problems.
