Question about Toshiba Satellite A105-S4004 Notebook

Dropped Toshiba satellite a105 laptop, screen black

I bumped into my computer desk, knocking over my Toshiba Satellite A105 laptop. Now when I turn on the laptop, the screen remains black. The light indicator shows that the laptop is connected to a battery and charged, however, the screen will not turn on. My warranty is over, and I really cannot opt for a repair - that would be the last resort. Can anyone offer any suggestions before I take my laptop in for an expensive repair?

    Hook the monitor to the VGA port. then

    Look at the "F" keys along the top of your keyboard. One of them will have a picture that looks like a little TV screen.

    Hold down the Fn key and press that F key. Might have to do it twice, but that will cycle through the LCD display, and external display, or both

    Hook your laptop to an external monitor, and see if it boots and works ok. If it does, the your LCD screen is bad. It is easy to replaced and not that expensive.

Toshiba a105 on start up screen is red, then goes black


The Toshiba A105 notebook computer is made for mobile computer users who need optimal processing power. The LCD screen is a 15.4 diagonal widescreen with TruBright technology. The laptop has a fast hard drive access rate that is in the 3ms range for the paging and access of data. There are problems that can occur with the Satellite A105 that can be solved by knowing what to look for when troubleshooting the system.

Black Screen Problem Black screen problems can occur when the Satellite A105 backlight is burned out or the inverter is not working correctly. The backlight can be replaced with a new LCD bulb manufactured for LCD screens. The inverter is a housing unit that controls the voltage to the LCD screen. The inverter must be replaced by a compatible A105 Satellite inverter unit. Power Problems b> During the power-up phase of the laptop, the Satellite A105 will quickly turn off without signing into the Windows Operating Screen. The problem can be due to a faulty power adapter that is not supplying the right amount of voltage to the system board. You can also check to see if the unit that houses the power plug is loose, which also indicates lack of voltage or electricity going to the board for power up operations. Hardware Conflict Problems b> Hardware conflicts can cause system errors or "freezes" by loading a new hardware component into the same hardware I/O address. The Satellite A105 has designated input/output addresses for peripheral devices, such as hard drives, video drivers and other hardware functions. To solve hardware conflicts, use the Control Panel "Hardware" device function to see which hardware I/O addresses is not being used. b> Audio Not Working Correctly b> Loading a new audio program can cause the audio codec for the Satellite A105 not to produce sound. The audio codec can be restored by loading the "restore system disk" for the A105 laptop. The restore menu provides options on certain components that you want to restore. If you pick the option for audio, the program will restore the audio to its factory settings. b> On-board LAN Switch Not Working b> The Satellite A105 is automatically configured to detect T Base 10/100 Ethernet networks. If the laptop does not recognize the on-board LAN switch, check the system setup to examine if the LAN switch is on. If so, a firmware update may be needed to upgrade the BIOS.

The LCD assembly will have a part number either on a paper sticker or printed on some empty real estate. Check for one that matches the structure of part number(s) listed on eBay.

Toshiba Satellite A105 - S4547, screen goes black when using the battery (not plugged in)


check your control panel/video to ensure device driver is current. use driverguide.net.since when on battery no pic suggests that the battery life span is shortened. Recharge and check how long the battery level lasts when doing normal internet or document reviews. Video playing drains the battery at a high rate, when battery is already low, virtual memory tries to assist.
