Question about Toshiba Satellite A200-0ET00X Notebook
You could have a defective screen - follow this to determine the fault.
Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.
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.

You entered in the cycle of internal/external monitor. Ok, laptops have three display modes:
3) Internal AND external simultaneously.
You can change modes by pressing Fn+F4 keys (you model may vary). Press the key combination, and wait 1-2 seconds, keep pressing the key combination until you reach you internal display mode.

A200 series laptops are very good normally but don't boot up if there
is a device in the USB slot or a CD/DVD in the drive.
If it still refuses to POST, remove the AC Adapter, remove the battery and remove the hard drive.
Power the unit up without the hard drive and it should complete POST and complain that there is no hard drive. If that doesn't work remove AC adapter, ensure battery is disconnected and remove hard drive and RAM. Try again. If it still doesn't work, you have a mother board fault and it needs a service centre. www.Toshiba.com will help you out.
If it does work at one of the options, when you have closed the laptop down, replace the RAM first and test, then the Hard Drive.
When working download updated BIOS from Toshiba.com
Hope this fixes your problem.
