Question about Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook

1 Answer

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?

My acer aspire laptop 5336-2524 worked fine until today when i turned it on everything works fine except the screen stays black. What can i do to fix this


Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barelysee the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can beany kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vgacable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves yourvideo card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you rebootwithout you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN(Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correctkey for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key willnormally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works,then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash lightand nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card isbad.

Toshiba A105-S4074 laptop's monitor has no backlight


Use the VGA port to connect an external monitor, this will get you up and running temporarily until you can fix the screen, it sounds like you have a faulty inverter.

Display


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)

Try connecting an external monitor if this also shows a "bad" picture then probably the graphics chip on the laptop is faulty.
