Your post is not very clear on the exact problem you are having. If your issue is that some web pages have large amounts of blank white space to the right or both left and right of the web page, then the issue is you have a high resolution LCD and the web page was written using page frames. (If this is the case, the web page is being displayed as designed and there is no fault to the system)

If that is not the issue, then post specific details as to what you are seeing and what you are doing when the issue occurs.

It sounds like the cable between the motherboard and the LCD. My advice is to take it to a repair shop.

Toshiba Satellite L310 problem , display cannot appears


If the screen went blank after the driver install, sometimes clicking the mouse on the screen will bring the picture back. It sounds like the monitor is having a conflict with the resolution the driver is throwing out. Reboot the laptop and when you see the Toshiba splash screen, tap F8 until you see the multiple boot menu. Scroll to Safe Mode with networking and reboot. If the screen comes up, go to the control panel > System > hardware > display adapter > click on the plus sign and double click the reported adapter.click on driver tab and select roll back driver > click yes to any prompts and click ok. Reboot normally and see if that clears the problem.

When you press power button press F8 key then enter in enable vga mode.
Then go to display proeprty and set screen rsolution to 1024*768 then apply.
Then check.

The display has dimmed, and looks washed out (faded)


You most likely have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:
  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
  • Picture flickering with dim display.
  • Picture flickering on and off.
All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp

Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Screen stays black on startup of toshiba satellite L300


have you tried either switching between external and internal monitor usally Fn + F5 on toshiba or try plugging a monitor into the back and see if it displays.
if you get a display on the external monitor then its probably a screen or inverter fault if you donot get a display to an external screen then it is likley t be the graphics on the board itself.
hope this helps
