Question about Toshiba Satellite Computers & Internet

2 Answers

Hez, i bought recently a Toshiba Satelolite C series lap top. I already have issues! The screen turns pink, all the white color is pink and I get green flickering around all icons. I reinstalled the system, and no succes, I hope I don't have a hardware problem! This laptop 2 months old! I had 3 HP lap tops before and never a problem with them. So what do you think? Is this a bad connection problem or something else?

Possibly a screen issue. To prove it, connect an external monitor to it. If all OK then the screen is faulty. If not, GPU issues.

Okay, in order to isolate the issue, I recommend you to update the graphic card drivers and I also suggest you to check the same in BIOS and with external monitor. If you see the screen flickering in BIOS, you have to contact HP and they will arrange for free mail in service.

SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite L35 screen color turned to pink.

If you have a LCD-screen, not an old-style CRT-screen, it is the data-cable, and its connections, that are not transmitting one of the 3 "primary" colours, e.g., mix red & blue & green to get white,
but mix only two of those colours, and you could get pink,
because the mixing is an "additive" process.

If you mix NONE of the 3 primary colours, you should get BLACK.
If you see GREEN, you're seeing ONE of the primary colours.

My laptop screen is shaking, i have a toshiba..i got ot in december.. i lost my windows password and recently had it wiped. please help me


Flickering can be caused by a lamp going bad or a video card going bad having a computer wiped would not have caused this issue. You can check by going to devices making sure the driver files are loaded for the video driver. Start there if it continues to flicker on you take it to someone that know what they are doing to repair this electronic issue which can only be repaired by a tech. Just a suggestion that is what I would do.
The video card is most likely integrated in the motherboard and the lamp is located internally in the monitor screen. You will have to disassemble the lap top to work on this and test it. So if you do not want to ruin this lap top take it in save yourself a headache and more expense. John

Does the laptop have integrated or dedicated graphics?
This could be a problem with the graphics drivers. Go to the Toshiba website, and get the latest drivers for you PC, this should solve the problem. If this doesn't solve it, than it looks like the screen / graphics controller / GPU is failing.

My dell inspiron 4000 screen is green or pink and when I move the curser it's like I am painting with a brush with white paint. The colors are distorted with mainly pink and green


Since you already hooked up a desktop monitor and it works fine then that only means that this is already a hardware issue. Most likely the screen. Contact Manufacturer.
