Question about Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook

1 Answer

Can't get my laptop to display on a monitor.

I hooked my girlfriend's computer up to my monitor and it worked fine, but when i hook my Toshiba Satellite A105 up to it nothing. About a year ago I spilled some ramen noodles on my laptop and i turned it over to make sure it was dry before i started to use it again, the spill was right over the monitor port. Don't know if that would have killed the port or what.

Most laptops require you to press the Fn (Function) key and another key on the keyboard to activate the external video port, not too sure which button on your model it is, but it should look like a monitor.

Other than that it could be your board is fried. Which will need replacement/ repair.

Toshiba Satellite L455-S5000 monitor blackout but works w an external monitor


This is a tricky situation, any fluid that ends up inside can cause a cascade effect, hours, days, weeks and even months before the full efects are known. You could end up changing the screen and down the road face major failure in the motherboard. Under the circumstances I would consider a laptop replacement.

The monitor does not work on Satellite L305-S5921, I can hook up an external monitor and that works.


The display needs to be replaced or the display plug is unplugged at the motherboard has a short in it.The video card sounds to be working fine.I would guess the display needs to be replaced.

I have a toshiba satelite A-55 S1063 my screen started flickering and the screen goes off why?


Usually it's because the lcd is no longer working. You can try hooking your computer to an external monitor to see if you get video. Make sure the computer is off and hooked up to the monitor before powering on the computer.

Let us know what happens!

Hello Milligan,
Your problem is the inverter board in the display. Thats the reason why its working with an external display. The external display input is from the video card not from your display. You can get an inverter board for around 30-50$. Be advised that if you are not experienced in electronics better leave this job for a tech.

Regards,
Rajesh.
