Sounds like your refresh rate is incorrect

Boot into safe mode. Go to Start > Control Panel > Under Appearance and Personalization , select Adjust screen resolution ,
Selct your laptops display , set the resolution to 1024x768 , click on advanced settings then click the monitor tab at the top.
In the box below , select Use hardware default setting .

Hit ok.

If that doesnt fix it something is wrong with the drivers.

Start in safe mode with networking and get the drivers from here and install them.

No beeps toshiba x200


IF neither your external Monitor or Laptop LCD screen are inactive, this generally relates to the Video Section on the mainboard a being compromised. The best solution is a bench test done by a technical professional to locate the excact cause.

Plug the computer into an external monitor. If the picture is normal the screen on the laptop needs replacing. If there are lines on the external monitor then its the motherboard.

Perhaps a result of the auto display off. press any key to activate the screen again.

If using the LCD screen, make sure the priority is not set on an external monitor. To do this, press the Fn function key combination to set the display priority.

if you use an external monitor:
1. Check whether the monitor is switched on

2. Check if the power cable is properly connected

3. Check if the cable menguhungkan external monitor and the notebook is connected correctly.

4. Try to set the constrast and brightness on the external monitor

I have a toshiba satellite laptop the screen is black


Shutting the computer down could be done by holding the Power Switch down for 10 seconds, rather than unplug/no battery "solution". A blank screen is more often than not caused by the failure of the screen's backlight. Plugging an external monitor in the ext monitor port would verify the computer still works, and I am sure it does.

As you can see an image on an external monitor, this means your video card is OK.
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.

To Do This....
Plug an External Monitor into the laptop serial port..Boot the laptop and use the function key plus F5 to boot to external screen... If you see your PC running on the external screen it is a Video card/chip problem.....
