Question about Toshiba VGA Board Graphic Card
I've got a Toshiba laptop; Satelite A105 that is 2 yrs old to be
exact. The connection to the external monitor is experiencing
intermittent connection problems. When I jiggle the VGA cable where
it plugs into the laptop I can get it to connect and stay on but if I
move anything it drops signal again. Same problem persists after I
put in a new VGA cable.
What is the fasest, cheapest way to determine where the problem and
The problem is with the laptop. The femal VGA port is slodered to the motherboard. Once the laptop's MB has been removed you'll most likely find the solder holding the VGA in place is most likely cracked/loose. The fix would be to remove the old solider & apply new.
I can't guide you through disemble, its complex. I can include a site to help you with this.
If you find this all a little too involved it might be worth taking it to a pro.
At this link you can order A105 parts if needed.
I hope this helps you kevinwaynewh!
