My friend has a Toshiba A135-S2346 laptop and the screen has gone out. It sounds like it's still loading and what not, but when I try to hook it up to a desktop monitor, I still get nothing.

Hi,
You have hooked up the external desktop monitor BEFORE booting up the laptop I'm assuming? That needs to be done first of all.
Secondly - find a button on your laptop that looks like two small screens or boxes that look like screens. They are probably drawn on top of your number keys (123456789 etc). You should have a button down in your left corner of your keyboard called FN? Hold in that button and press the number key that has the icon of those "screens" or "boxes". This will toggle turning on an external display vs. the internal display or both depending on how many times you press the number key while holding down the FN key.
Please let us know how this works out.
Thanks,
Kaj

Have toshiba satellite a130/a135 laptop screen red then goes blank


Try hooking up a external monitor. If you get video on the monitor and not the LCD, then your LCD may be in trouble.
If you don't get video on the external monitor, then your video card is gone.

My toshiba Satellite A135-S2276 boots up normally and then before it freezes I hear a static sound coming from the speakers and then computer does nothing at all


the problem seems to be related to static shock affecting toshiba mousepads, speaker grills, and USB ports. It's a common problem, and it is affecting my Toshiba laptop too. Here's an article I came across trying to diagnose the frequent freeze-ups:

Its on my wifes toshibe satellite notebook. The screen went to gray and now won't load windows or when use restore disk the same problem


Sounds like the display has gone bad. Most likely the inverter, which supplys high voltage to the tube that lights up the screen.

Does a monitor hooked up to the laptop display properly? If so this pretty much confirms that it is the display that is faulty. The only fix I can comfortably recommend to the do-it-yourselfer is to take it in for repair, though you may be better off replacing the whole laptop.
