Question about Toshiba Turquoise 10.1" NB505-N508TQ Netbook PC with Intel Atom N455 Processor and Windows 7 Starter (883974682959)
This is a common problem on net books. You can try playing with the resolution until the picture fits the screen again (that is often a resolution setting issue). To find resolution setting, right click anywhere on the desktop and click on 'properties', or 'personalize', whichever it shows, then 'Display' in bottom right corner. Good luck.

This is definitely a loose connection problem.
Does the screen go completely black or just a part ?
If its just a part, LCD is defective. You may have to change the whole LCD screen. You can get one for ~180$ from ebay
If the whole is turning off, I guess the power cable might be little loose.
You can open the LCD panel and check if you know what you are doing.
Else take it to a normal technician and ask him to open the LCD panel and see it.

Press "Ctrl-Alt" and an arrow key (left, right, up or down) to rotate the screen.
Continue pressing the hotkeys and arrow keys until you reach the desired rotation. This works with most video drivers on Windows XP. If it doesn't, proceed to Step 3.
Click "Start," then "Control Panel," then "Display," then the "Settings" tab. Click the "Advanced" button. Check for an "Orientation" option. Select your desired orientation.

How to Change the Brightness of the Display
To darken the display, press the yellow 2nd button and then press and hold down the Up-Arrow button located in the upper right section of the keypad. Release the Up-Arrow button when the display has reached the desired level of darkness.
To lighten the display, press the yellow 2nd button and then press and hold down the Down-Arrow button. Release the Down-Arrow button when the display has reached the desired level of lightness.
As you go through this process, a number will appear at the top right corner of the display. If this number is 7 or higher when your screen reaches the desired level of brightness, then your batteries are getting low and may need replacing soon. This number will be approximately 3 or 4 for new batteries.
