Re: Toshiba a105 screen goes blank

Sounds like GPU failure. unfortunately its nigh on impossible to replace without replacing the whole board which can be expensive. I saw a few on ebay for around £120.

Toshiba screen is blank ans light on under F10 key.

Is the screen completely blank, or just dim? If it is dim, then most likely your lcd power inverter is bad, and needs to be replaced, which is the cheapest part to replace. If it is completely blank then you should try to hook up an external monitor to the laptop, and don't get any video, then most likely there is an issue with your motherboard or video card. The external monitor method sometimes needs you to press a combination of the Fn key and another F key in order to switch from your laptop lcd to an external monitor.

Toshiba A105 S2719 screen problem

Is this behavior irrespective of power condition of the laptop, ie both ac and battery?
Please see bios bulletins for your system here. Sometimes a bios update can correct this kind of problem...
However, also note this article.
In the probable event that none of that works, it's probably your inverter or backlight (EL) panel, both of which can be replaced. The white lines are not a good sign. See other thread discussions of same here and here.
Google "diagnose laptop monitor failure" for more, or see this repair guide.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Toshiba Satellite Laptop refuses to allow Dual Monitors

I have an A105 set up on dual screens, and it works great. As I recall, you have to do the dual screen setup in the control panel, display, settings.

I have a Toshiba A105 Laptop, Screen goes blank after windows....

Here are some easy things that can sometimes resolve this problem:
1) Sometimes there can be a static buildup on the mother board. Power off, remove the battery, remove the power cord and hold the power button in the on position for at least 30 seconds.
2) If that didn't work- Power down, remove the battery, remove the Hard Drive and memory modules and reinsert them. Try to power back up
If these things don't work, get back to me for some more ideas.

The problem with the LCD screen , if the external display is working fine. The LCD needs a replacement. The same thing happened on my Dell and we had to replace the Lcd. The same can occur because the LCD cable gets damaged when you open or close the LCD
