Question about Toshiba Satellite M35X-S349 Notebook
I am trying to diagnose whether I need a new screen or just a new flow inverter for my screen problems. Is there a simple way to tell which one it could be? The screen initially went dark although I could still adjust the brightness and notice the change in brightness on the dark blank screen. Occasionally I can see the image but it jumps all around. When I first wake it from hibernation I can clearly see the mouse pointer and move it throughout the whole screen before it goes dark/blank/jumping image. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks This barely happened to me last night.The battery was on 5% and I ran to get the charger before it hibernated.By the time I plugged it in, it barely began to hibernate.I turn it back on to prevent my work from being lost. The blue light around the on button is on, but the screen is completely black. Nothing appears on the screen.I tried turning it off and turning it back on, nothing. I let it rest because I thought that was what's wrong. This morning, still the same problem. Help?
Ok, from the beginning. Can you do a cold boot and get into the bios? (is there an image on the screen then)
Secondly, can you connect to an external monitor and see an image?
Did it do this only when it was heading in to hibernation? If so, it sounds like the power management needs some adjustment.
If there's no image on the external monitor, you may have a video/motherboard problem, or it still could be the operating system/power management.
It all depends on if you have video in bios.
Let me know.
