Toshiba Sat A75-SP231, Display too bright no contrast

Laptop is aToshiba Satellite A75-SP231 and the problem is the display is like... too bright, temporary solution was to enter the Video settings (ATI Driver for Radeon 9000 IGP) and turn bright and contrast to minnimum. I tested the laptop using simultaneously a CRT display wich worked normally so when bright and contrast were set to minimum, I coud see an almost normal image at the lap and a barely distinguisable image at the CRT.

In advance, thanks to all :D

There is a brightness setting on your keyboard on ours it is Fn F6 to turn down the brightness. Just look for a sille "sun" symbol with a downward triangle symbalizing down. Try this and get back to me if it does not fix the problem we can try something else

    did this happen all at once? did you turn the computer on and it was this way or did it gradually happen?

    I think the backlight on the laptop might be going out...kinda like a lightbulb going out, the light gets brightest right before it burns out. But it definately sound like one of the electrical components is going out on the motherboard

How to adjust a contrast on this laptop?there is only brightness setting on keyboard

Hello there, Unfortunately, laptops are unable to directly change the contrast of the screen; however, if you download the ATI Catalyst Control Center, you will be able to do it via your ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4200 Graphics card. Here is the link for CCC
Hope this helps! Thumbs up if it did!

My screen is to dark to read. Everthing else is working. My laptop is only 4 months old.

Hello !

The most common reason for a dark screen, is a backlight problem. Your backlight or inverter board is faulty and needs replacement.

Since your laptop is under warranty, contact Toshiba for a replacement. They should either repair or replace your laptop.

Hope this helps.

1 long beep, 2 short beep, blank screen but i hear windows starting

Indicates a video error has occurred and the BIOS cannot initialize the video screen to display any additional information. If any new hardware was been recently added to the computer, remove that hardware to make sure it is not the cause of your issue. If after removing the new hardware your computer works it's likely the computer is either not compatible with the new hardware or a system setting needs to be changed to work with the new hardware device.
