I connected RGB from toshiba m45-s169 to tv. Had a signal but now cant get it back. Tried updating video driver. Help?


You can switch to an external monitor, TV or data projector by two methods. 1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor. 2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key a few times. Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :- IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7 HP and Compaq = Fn + F4 Toshiba = Fn + F5 Dell = Fn + F8

To test, u can plug external monitor in the VGA-port, turn ON the laptop, after a minute, toggle the display once, or twice, or 3 times to change the display path to the external monitor.
Tell us your results
Good Luck

Vertical lines appear on screen


Hook a external monitor to the video output on the back of the laptop, if okay! you have a bad LCD on the computer or the video cord from the motherboard to the screen is loose. But if both displays show the same problem, it is the video graphics card on the motherboard.

I have a toshiba satelite A-55 S1063 my screen started flickering and the screen goes off why?


Usually it's because the lcd is no longer working. You can try hooking your computer to an external monitor to see if you get video. Make sure the computer is off and hooked up to the monitor before powering on the computer.

Let us know what happens!

Vertical lines are appearing on my toshiba laptop


first try to hook it into an external monitor if it looks good,I would have to say you have a damaged cable on your monitor.if you are comfortable taking it apart you can try to reseat the ribbon cable on the mobo.you can usually find an online manual for disassembly.

Vertical line in imac 17" core 2 duo intel 2006 model


Attach an external monitor (you may need to buy an adapter to try this) and turn on Display Mirroring in the Display preferences.
If the same symptom shows on the external monitor, then you've got a video card problem. If not, I'd say you're screen has some kind of damage of failure.
Sorry, but either one is likely going to require a trip to the Apple Hospital.
At least with the display problem, you could use the external monitor until repaired.

Screen problem.


Does your LCD look like this or similiar? (below) If it does, there should be a female plug similiar to the picture also below.
Hook smaller end of cable to your laptop, the other end to your external monitor. Turn on your laptop. If the vertical lines are not present then its probably your LCD, which will more than likely have to be replaced. If lines are present, then like tom19511 said it may be the video drivers. I've had this same problem with my Toshiba Satellite p35 5 times already. Toshiba had to replace my LCD each time. LCD's are more expensive than an inverter. Good luck, I hope you get it fixed.
