A challenging problem with not-so-typical glare

Hello you wonderful people out there who can help me!!!! I have a challenge for you...

I have no idea if this is possible to fix...I know all about contrast, brightness, etc. and have worked to set those how I want without incident.

The problem, unfortunately, seems to be the way the laptop screen was created in that when my screen is where I want it (i.e. straight up and down) it is kind of cloudy (due to the glare of lights in the room...any room). It's only when I lean the screen pretty far backwards that I finally have everything looking the way I want it.

I just bought this baby and this problem is MUY annoying!!!! Does anyone have any ideas? THANKS SO MUCH IN are all AWESOME!!!!! :) ~K
PS This is about my Toshiba L305D-S5893, which wasn't listed as one of the options, so ignore whatever that box says. Thanks! :)

Acer dim light screen

Most likely your inverter board is dead. The board sits under the bezel along the bottom of the screen. This is a moderately challenging repair. Typically involving removing the screen at the hinge and then with a plastic pry bar disassembling the screen to get to the board. I've seen these boards range from $40-140

Hello, Cindy.

Your CMOS (watch-type) CR2032 battery needs to be replaced. You'll find the battery on the underside of the circuit board.

That said, it's challenging to take the bottom of your laptop apart. Get some hands-on help if you are not familiar.

Hope this helps.

Are few alternatives these day to the CLASSIC EDUCATIONAL PROCESS.
First one is the alert rhythm of the society. This rhythm just SWALLOW anyone's time so there's not too much left for READING or for DEVELOPING ABILITIES.

Toshiba Portege S100 Bios password


The only way to obtain the response for the challenge code is to send your unit to an authorized repair facility. I work at the depot repair facility in Lou.Ky. And we have to send a request to Japan or California to get the response code.
