Toshiba satelite pro red spot on screen

Sounds like your screen is going bad or your video card is bad. Try plugging an external monitor to the laptop to isolate the problem. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and plug it into the laptop. if the borrowed monitor displays without the red spot then your original monitor is bad. If the borrowed monitor shows the red spot then your video card inside the computer is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

My TOshiba satelite pro L300 in not continuing to windows,the screen is black i think its hanging up..were trying to reformat it but its not successful.I dont know if it had a bad sector in hard disk. but...


When a computer powers up the basic control program (BIOS) first addresses the graphics, then the CPU, then the memory, then the hard drive, then other devices.

If you see nothing at all on the screen, then it is probably a problem with the graphics card.

Check the lights on the front of the laptop. If you see a power light but no activity on the hard disk activity light, then the boot is failling at the 1st stage, before it even reaches the hard disk stage. this means a graphics problem.

If the hard disk was preventing the computer from biooting you would see the first 3 parts of the boot procedure on the screen before it stops at the hard disk stage.

Remove the battery. Connect the power cable without the battery and try to boot. If it boots, the battery is the problem.

Connect a desltop PC VGA cable to the laptop's VGA port and connect it to a desktop PC monitor and send the image to the external monitor by pressing th Fn key simultaneously with the Function key with a picture of 2 monitors (normally F5, F6 of F7). If the image appears on the external monitor, the graphics card is ok.

If the graphics card is OK, then the problem will be a faulty LCD Panel, LCD Panel Power Inverter or LCD Panel Cold Cathode backlight. If not then the problem is the graphics card.

Ask a technician to test and replace any of these faulty parts, if necessary.

If it is the graphics card, then the repair is either Ball graphics Array Reflow or Reballing, both of which can be expensive, have a marginal success rate and the fault can reoccur after repair.

Only a specialist with an Infra Red workstation can fix the graphics card,. typical repair warranty is 3-6 months. If it's too expensive to fix, it may be better to buy a new laptop.

I hope this helps.

(Toshiba Satelite Laptop- Panasocic Viera TV) After connecting the Laptop to TV, via HDMI cable, nothing is displaying on TV. What settings do we need to use, to configure the two?

First you may want to go to the TV's menu and select the input to which you have plugged in the HDMI cable.

Second, on the laptop you will have to press a key combination to change the display from the built-in LCD screen to the external output.
It is Fn + F5 on most Toshibas, you will have to look for a function key with an icon symbolizing a internal/external screen like this:

It works like a 3-way toggle; when you hold the Fn key and press F5 repeatedly it circles through the following options:
- internal LCD only
- internal LCD + external monitor (both)
- external monitor only

If you want to see the picture on the LCD as well, you have to stop at the "both" option, but the resolution will be limited to the one of your laptop screen.
If you want to use the full resolution of the TV (like Full-HD) you need to stop at the "external" only and adjust your laptop display settings to optimum/maximum resolution for your TV.

Please come back and rate the solution if helped or post a comment for further assistance.

Dual monitors

Most laptops have a function key to set which monitor is active. By toggling this key, you switch between laptop screen, external screen, and both.
On the keyboard, the key is usually Fn pushed together with one of the function keys that has a monitor logo above it.

Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527

LCD not displaying screen, correct. If you have a external monitor like from a desktop, then you can attach it to the laptop. Most laptops have a VGA or DVI connector on them. Even HDMI on new laptop. Most laptop have a combo you need to push to have it go the external monitor. It usually has Fn (Function) then above the F1-F10 keys in color, are the Function keys you push to get it.
I've seen it on F3-F4 keys normally. Your might be different. Use them as a reference only.

Let me know
