Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I got one of my buddies laptops trying to fix it for him. It is a toshiba p700. I'm thinking there is something wrong with the screen. I don't know much about computers but when you press the power button, it comes on but you can't see anything on the screen. You can put software in and hear the drive running. The lights come on when you turn it on. That's pretty much about it. Thanks, Becky

One thing you might want to try first, is to connect an external monitor and see if you see things, if you do, most likely your screen will need to be replaced. Probably the back lighting bulbs are burnt out or the inverter is dead.

Try to remove the battery and charger, hold on power button for about 50-60seconds, then plug-in the charger and turn the laptop ON, see what happens.
If it started, unplug the charger, plug-in the battery, and start the laptop again.

For the recovery discs, if the original windows wasn't formatted, you can get recovery discs from windows, using Toshiba recovery media backup.

Please tell us your results
Good Luck

So I have a Toshiba satellite M505-S4940 laptop and my laptop wont power up. the lights come on but no display. I was told that the graphics card was damaged just by telling someone what I had told you via...

Your laptop uses an Intel chip for the video, with the option of an NVidia chip. If you took the option then the diagnostic is correct - the NVidia chips of that generation were notorious for overheating and failing. If you have the standard unit (no options) then it's wrong.
You need to find out if the laptop actually starts: listen to the hard disk, if you hear it spinning while the boot takes place then the defect is somewhere in the video section. In that case connect an external monitor (a tv) and see if you get something - if you don't then the defect is in the graphics chip and the repair (if possible) would be about what he said. If you see then it's in the screen and it will cost you less than $100 to fix (unless you broke the screen). And no, you can't fix it yourself, the graphics chip is soldered on the motherboard.
If you don't hear the disk then the motherboard has failed and to replace it will cost you about $250.

Toshiba Satellite L455-S5000 turns on but screen is black

Try external monitor, if it works then more likley the backlight inverter or the lamp is bad.
see for example.,Satellite,L455-S5000,PSLY0U-03F02F,Laptop,Inverters.aspx

Screen goes black

I think your battery might not be shorting out the lcd.

Leave the battery out and see if the lcd stays lit without going black, if it does it probably is the battery thats bad.

Try a known good working battery and see if the lcd stays lit. If the lcd stays lit then you know the battery was bad. if you get the same symptoms from another battery then you know its something with the motherboard at that point.
