Question about Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook

1 Answer

Display I have a A105-S3021 laptop. The display is bad. I have been my home PC monitor to use my laptop until it is fixed. I unplugged my laptop today and now it will not allow me to use the outside monitor. It will show the windows screen while booting up but then the monitor goes into red, green sleep mode and not allow the laptop to be viewed farther. Any ideas?

If you've got exacttly the same each time you're start, then the VGA card has issue, or even the motherboard and CPU.

If not then try to chock the base of the screen with two fingers when starting, if nothing happen try to chock the middle of the keyboard and several spot around it. (it's a little bit brutal but the easiest way to find a bad contact or dead components)

Toshiba sateille A105 s2141 black screen at start up


check the laptop using an external monitor and if there is no display then the mother board is faulty and will need the help from a service center.
If there is display then it is confirmed that the LCD panel is faulty. It can be due to faulty LCD, linking cord to the panel or an interface failure of the display section.
All of the above will require that you must have some test equipments to confirm.
