LCD going onto seizures

I have had this toshiba A105 for about 7 months and everything has been great, until now. The LCD will randomly go into a flicker fit. I can still carry out a process using the tab keys so the computer is still working, seems like a display prob. when I move the mouse it flickers at different speeds and eventually turns white. I tried moving the lid back and forth, but the only way to get rid of it is to reboot. help!

Re: LCD going onto seizures

If the outside temperature was 90 degrees F or better and was in the car for an hour or more in the sun then I would contact the manufacturer to get it on the record. You probably have about 3 months left on your warranty so I would make it their problem. If its software you're only out time, however, if its hardware you will be lucky to diagnose the problem and get it repaired inside 30 days. The killer with a warranty repair is that you won?t get an extension of your warranty. That means you will have to exercise the heck out of the laptop to make sure the repair was the real problem and not just a symptom of something else.

Screen is dark but icons are barley visible.

What you have is an inverter failure most likely. The inverter takes the AC adapter voltage and converts it to high voltage AC for the backlight bulb. Backlight bulbs rarely fail but the inverters do. Ebay has inverters for around 15-20 bucks. The inverter sits under the lcd panel behind the screen bezel. In most cases, removing the bezel is all you need to do to change the inverter out. Below is a link to the service manual for that model.

When you click on the link go to page 4-61, this is the start of the lcd disassembly. I thing just 4 screws need to be removed and then take your finger nails and pry off the bezel in a small area and work your way around the screen until the bezel comes loose. When replacing the bezel always start at the bottom between the hinges and work your way up and around.

N, H, T and Backspace keys suddenly not working.

You can try blowing it out with compressed air, but you will probably need to remove the keyboard to make sure nothing was spilled or stuck in there. You should be able to remove the keyboard by removing the battery, then removing the keyboard securing strip, and then you should be able to take a screwdriver and pry the keyboard up and out.

Toshiba A105 dispay

This is usually a sign that the LCD is going to die and needs replaced but it could just be loose.

If you are comfortable with computers and have some knowledge you could try taking the face plate off of the monitor and making sure the connection plugged into the back of the LCD is securely fastened.

The laptop could also be overheating. Try setting it on a table and using it with nothing covering up the vent holes. see if that helps.
