Can you try plugging the laptop into an external monitor and enabling the external video? I think on a Toshiba, that's a Function +F5 key together (or holding the function key and pressing the F5 key.) Repeatedly using that combination should cycle through using the built-in LCD panel only, LCD +external or external-only. If none of them work, there is a good chance you have a dead video card in your computer at which point you have two options: 1) replace the whole computer or 2)replace the on-board video (sometimes it's not built-in to the motherboard, but attached to it so it can be easily replaced once you open the case.)

My guess, based on limited experience, is that if the on-board video is bad, there's probably more damage than just the on-board video and you might as well replace the whole thing. There's a possibility you might find the same make/model of laptop on eBay or somewhere like that with a damaged LCD panel that you can use to rebuild yours.

Tell us your results
Good Luck

Toshiba satellite a300 laptop display problem screen black, no display at all.


You laptop either needs a new Cable from the Motherboard to the Screen, a new power inverter, or a new screen. Most commonly, I have seen the video cable get smashed between the hinges/plastic case, and this causes the wires to break apart, leading to a black screen.

Here is the power inverter for your laptop: http://www.sparepartswarehouse.com/Toshiba,Satellite,A300,PSAG0U-0CF035,Laptop,Inverters.aspx

Here is the video cable for your laptop: http://www.notebooksolutions.ca/zc/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=3392&zenid=7903c7a1a62c4c2cbfef6ea30865373c

Here is the LCD screen for your laptop: http://www.sparepartswarehouse.com/Toshiba,Satellite,A300,PSAG0U-0CF035,Laptop,LCDs-Displays.aspx

If the display comes back, slightly, when you lift the display lid up and down, this would be a sign that your cable is bad. If you get no reaction from opening and closing the lid, you may have a bad inverter or screen. It is most commonly the inverter or the cable.

If you have a spare monitor, you could plug it into the VGA connector on your Laptop as a temporary solution. If after plugging the monitor in, you get no display, try pressing Fn + F5.

try first your laptop without using your laptop screen. remove laptop screen and testing display output from your CRT or LCD monitor. if display comes out, try to check your inverter.

Screen stays black on startup of toshiba satellite L300


have you tried either switching between external and internal monitor usally Fn + F5 on toshiba or try plugging a monitor into the back and see if it displays.
if you get a display on the external monitor then its probably a screen or inverter fault if you donot get a display to an external screen then it is likley t be the graphics on the board itself.
hope this helps

Screen is black. Can't see anything.


Shut it off and try hooking an external monitor up to it. Turn it on and see if there is any display on the monitor

Laptop monitor goes black


If you're working on the computer when that happens, it's not probably a power setting. Try to update your BIOS to the most current version at the toshiba support website (support.toshiba.com) & see what happens. Fixes the issue most of the time

I hope this helps.

Laptop powers up buy displays nothing


Can you plug the laptop up to an external monitor and keyboard, and test it that way?

Is it possible that the laptop is currently set to use the external monitor instead of the default one?
