Try the computer with an external monitor, if it works correctly then it's the monitor that has broke and you need it replaced.
otherwise, if it does the same things on the external monitor...
I would check in order:
1)RAM memory
2)Motherboard
if the problem is only after windows boot, try changing the video driver, the problem might be caused by overheating video Chip, but that should freeze the system too...try also to remove the dust from all the heatsinks with canned air...

Toshiba a105 on start up screen is red, then goes black


The Toshiba A105 notebook computer is made for mobile computer users who need optimal processing power. The LCD screen is a 15.4 diagonal widescreen with TruBright technology. The laptop has a fast hard drive access rate that is in the 3ms range for the paging and access of data. There are problems that can occur with the Satellite A105 that can be solved by knowing what to look for when troubleshooting the system.

Black Screen Problem Black screen problems can occur when the Satellite A105 backlight is burned out or the inverter is not working correctly. The backlight can be replaced with a new LCD bulb manufactured for LCD screens. The inverter is a housing unit that controls the voltage to the LCD screen. The inverter must be replaced by a compatible A105 Satellite inverter unit. Power Problems b> During the power-up phase of the laptop, the Satellite A105 will quickly turn off without signing into the Windows Operating Screen. The problem can be due to a faulty power adapter that is not supplying the right amount of voltage to the system board. You can also check to see if the unit that houses the power plug is loose, which also indicates lack of voltage or electricity going to the board for power up operations. Hardware Conflict Problems b> Hardware conflicts can cause system errors or "freezes" by loading a new hardware component into the same hardware I/O address. The Satellite A105 has designated input/output addresses for peripheral devices, such as hard drives, video drivers and other hardware functions. To solve hardware conflicts, use the Control Panel "Hardware" device function to see which hardware I/O addresses is not being used. b> Audio Not Working Correctly b> Loading a new audio program can cause the audio codec for the Satellite A105 not to produce sound. The audio codec can be restored by loading the "restore system disk" for the A105 laptop. The restore menu provides options on certain components that you want to restore. If you pick the option for audio, the program will restore the audio to its factory settings. b> On-board LAN Switch Not Working b> The Satellite A105 is automatically configured to detect T Base 10/100 Ethernet networks. If the laptop does not recognize the on-board LAN switch, check the system setup to examine if the LAN switch is on. If so, a firmware update may be needed to upgrade the BIOS.

System recovery/restore on my A015-S1014?


Perform a "System Restore" This is the best option; it will “restore the system” back to a previous state, to undo the change. 1. Go, to: "Control Panel". 2. Click System and Maintenance. 3. Click Backup and Restore Center. 4. In the (left) Tasks area, click on Repair Windows using System Restore.” 5. The restore “Wizard” appears. 6. Choose (Recommended) Restore Point. Important! If this, restore point fail? Try again using a different “restore point.” Find the “furthest” (Date) prior to when your computer was functioning normal. 7. Follow all instructions thereafter. *Note: “Once the computer returns to Windows Desktop, “do not perform any tasks, for at least (45 min) the System Restore is still “running." I hope this Fix it.
