Question about Toshiba Satellite A200-0ET00X Notebook

1 Answer

My toshiba A200 screen occasionally turns black and music also stops. When i try manually restarting my laptop, sometimes it works but most of the time it doesnt boot at all. Sometimes it doesnt even go into the Toshiba screen and stays black. The power light is on but when it stays black, the 4th light wont turn on either.

    Well i've had the laptop for more than two years. And yes i do tend to leave the laptop on. Theres no beep noises or any error messages, it jus turns black. I don't think its been overheated but i cant be sure. I'll try replacing the hard drive thanks.

This sounds like a hard drive is, or has failed. Either that or the RAM (memory has gone bad)
Did you let the laptop overheat? Was it left on for a long time? Or is this just an old machine ?
I would replace the hard drive, and reload the operating system, that is if you really want to keep the laptop. If that solves it great! Also, did you notice if there are any "beep" noises, or error messages when it acts up? Often times, you can go on the internet and find out what the messages mean.

Toshiba A200 Notebook Computer Screen Black Out


LCD monitor work based on backlight illumination, they have a fluorescent tube of high intensity usually located at the bottom ot top of the monitor sometimes they may even have two of these one on each side or on top and on the bottom of the screen, this tubes illuminate the screen from the side into the LCD device. The lights are powered by a high voltage switching power supply. A number of things may happen that can cause the symptons you are experiencing. You may have a bad high voltage power supply (locvated inside the laptop body or sometimes depending on the model inside the actual LCD lid.), you may also have a bad light tube or a bad flat cable that connects from the power supply to the LCD lid. Usually is not worth to pay for a repait like this as it is time consuming to dissasemble the whoel laptop to fix or replace any of the components involved in this. If you want a fast and cheaper solution, get a cheap LCD monitor and conenct it to the external RGB port of yoru laptop if you want to keep using it. Otherwise look for replacement parts online for the light tube, power supply assembly and cabling then get somebody to replace them for you.
