It would be oen of three things... in order of cost;

1. LCD Invertor has gone bad
2. SCREEN has gone bad
3. Motherboard has gone bad

In either of the three it would most likely take a toshiba tech to pinpoint exactly the problem and do the repair. Although if you are handy enough you can get the parts and repair it yourself.

All the students face the same problem with this laptop in my college.
Belive me Toshiba Tecra M4 is maximun 2 years life and then everything will turn bad
I suggest to buy another laptop rather spend your money trying to fix every problem. Alot of my friends waste over 2500 dollars hoped that the laptop will be fixed but nothing from that happend. At the end they bought a new laptop.

I installed windows xp on my toshiba tecra m4. How stylus pen works?


Toshiba Tecra M4-S435 is Tablet PC. Windows XP (Profession) has no option of touch screen.
In order to use the feature, you need to install Windows XP Tablet PC Edition or you may install Windows 7, which supports this feature and you would definately be able to use stylus and touch screen, as I have installed Windows 7 and its working fine with all the drivers etc.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

I have a screen problem. My Toshiba Tecra M4 has color imbalance because some black or blue colors become red. My laptop technician said there is a problem with the flex cable, but as I researched on the...


Toshiba is famous for overheating problems, blow out your cooling fan with canned air. Also another fairly common issue with the M4 is memory module seating, basically the memory modules/sticks werent put in properly by the factory...i know..go figure. Remove the memory panel from the back of the unit and remove the memory stick/s. Should be 2 of them, be gentle, and then just simply reinstall them back where they were making sure they are seated in the slots firmly, then replace the memory cover and fire it back up. This worked on 4 or 5 ive repaired with similar issues. Hope this helps you as well.

Tecra M4 with blank screen or colors wrong (red instead of black)


THis happened to my Tecra M4 4 times in 4 years. Each time was a motherboard replacement at the tech repair shop. Each time cosint about $600. I have heard of the heating method to reflow the solder but don't know how to do it. Others have paid for the motherboard replacement and modded the GPU fan to constantly run. I may get it fixed once more and try using a laptop cooler to keep it from overheating again. Because it is soldered on to the motherboard, they replace the entire board.

Tecra M4-S435 Won't Boot


The GPU graphics chip fails a lot in this model. It usually means a motherboard replacement. I've had it fixed 4 times at a cost of $600 each time at a authorized repair center but it reoccurs a year after. The GPU fan doesn't come on enough to cool the graphics chip so it fires or gets unseated.

Tecra M4 display problems


Nope there is nothing you can do. A reddish cast to the screen is a common indication that the backlight that illuminates the screen is going south.
