Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Toshiba Satellite screen has a "dark shadow" on the right side.

The laptop/tablet is working fine and perfectly. It's just that one side of the screen looks like the brightness isn't working and it's just darker than the rest.

That could be a backlight or GPU issue. Plug an external screen into the vga out to check the GPU.

SOURCE: Toshiba screen goes blank when it is opened too far

Sounds like a problem with the ribbon for the screen being either having a loose connection or getting nipped. Pretty common on laptops because the ribbon runs along by the hinges on the base and then up to the screen.

Hopefully you will be able to access the ribbon on your model by removing the plastic bezel which lies just above the keyboard. The ribbons I have seen are about 1/2 inch wide and as I said connect on the base and the screen. The connection just pushes in. If its loose at the connection on the base then obviously push the connection fully home. If it's getting nipped then reseat it so that it does not get caught. ***NOTE*** a problem could arise if the ribbon has actually been damaged from being nipped - opening the laptop could cause it more damage and then you could lose the screen until you replace with a new ribbon. These can normally be purchased on places like Ebay and don't cost an arm and a leg.

If this helps, I'd appreciate feedback so other people can use this as a solution. Thanks

Hello wall flower hi, when you turn on the laptop, did you see the start up screen clearly? can you read words on the screen, and then it goes dark? If this is the case, check first the Fn key with the corresponding display for projector, (usually Fn+F5) this combination key is used to display the content of your computer to the LCD or Projector, IF not such a case, it may be problems with your laptop inverter board that powers the backlight. Check your bios settings also.

LCD starts to display for about 2 seconds then goes dark.


lamp(s) perhaps.... with an LCD monitor (the desktop kind) you can shine a lite behind it. if you can see things on the screen it's the lamps... if you can't it's something else.
