Right click on your Desktop, click on Properties, then go to the Settings tab and set the color to 32 bit True Color.

It sounds to me like your display settings are set to monochrome/black and white.

SOURCE: The display has dimmed, and looks washed out (faded)

You most likely have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:

  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
  • Picture flickering with dim display.
  • Picture flickering on and off.
All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp

Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

SOURCE: LCD Screen colors are bad on toshiba Satellite M115-S3094

Was the screen showing all OK before you updated the driver? If so did you try backing out (uinstalling) the graphics driver? You mentioned gtaking screen cover off ... did you completely remove the screen from the laptop, including the wide connector at the top and the smaller one at the bottom, and the small one to the backlight? These connectors might be seated wrong, and you'll have to reseat them, mostly the big one at the top. Best o'luck, Moorethemerrier!

Can i replace a toshiba l355-s7901 motherboard with a toshiba l355-s7915 motherboard


Going out on a limb here, but I'm going to state yes, except the s7901 has hot keys in the center strip under the LCD screen. Above the Keyboard, where the Power On button is located. The s7915 doesn't.

Toshiba Satellite l355-s7901,

http://www.notebookcheck.net/Toshiba-Satellite-L355D-S7901.14988.0.html

You can click on the photos towards the bottom to enlarge.

Toshiba Satellite l355-s7915,

http://www.notebookcheck.net/Toshiba-Satellite-L355-S7915.19879.0.html

Same with the photos at the bottom.

I know this doesn't seem like a very professional answer/solution, but in viewing both of the laptops the ports, (USB, DC Power Jack, etc.), and the peripherals, (DVD optical drive, add-in card drive, etc.), seem to be in the same place.

Viewing a Service Manual for the Toshiba Satellite l350 series of Notebook PC's, shows removal procedures to be the same across the board, no matter what model deviation it is.
As long as it's one of the Satellite l350 series.

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-toshiba

Go down to the second Satellite file header. The one that starts with Satellite A10.
Now go down to the second line, and then go across to L350, and click on it.

This is a PDF file. May take up to 30 seconds before you see the first page, and additional time to fully download.

Do I know for a fact they will interchange? No, I do not.
I'm willing to bet strongly that they will.

The my laptop took some water damage about a year ago, since then the display on the screen has looked like a photo negative. Is there any way to fix this wihout taking it to a repair place?


HI there,

Here's the easiest way for you to troubleshoot this hardware problem.

1. Using an external monitor (whether your own or at a friend's place) which you connect to the laptop, see if the same problem shows on the bigger monitor. On most Toshiba, you'll need to transfer the video signal by holding down the "fn" key and pressing the F5 key oncew you've attached the laptop with the video cable.

a. If the same negative-like appearance appears on the larger montior, it means your problem is with the video chip which is soldered to the motherboard, the plug where the laptop screen attaches to that board, or damaged circuitry in between. This would almost surely cost more to repair than to buy a working used A105.

b. If the external monitor shows up clear and normal, then you have narrowed the problem down to the the laptop screen's connecting cable plug and there's a chance that the cable's end that plugs in has electrically shorted out elements, or the surge from the water shorting some curcuits damaged what's called the "screen inverter" or the LCD screen panel or both.

2. If the result is b., then you should look into what a local laptop repair specialist would charge to double check this and do the replacements. Then, you'd be able to make a decision that fits your personal needs and situation.

Best Regards

I have a Toshiba Satellite A135 and not sure if blacklight or something else


Your backlight lamp, (Bulb), or the Inverter is bad.

1.General instructions, and photos, for replacement of a typical laptop backlight,
http://www.ccfldirect.com/lcdtutorial.html

2.Instructions for completely disassembling a Toshiba Satellite A135 laptop. The reason I included this is twofold.

A.It shows, and tells exactly, how to remove the LCD screen from your laptop.

B.It shows you that the following information in link 3, on how to replace an Inverter in a Satellite A105, will work for your Satellite A135.
http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a135/remove-mainboard-1.htm
(At the bottom of this page you will see Page1:: Page2:: Page 3:: Page 4
You are on Page 1. Just click on the white Page2, and so on, to continue)

3.How to replace an Inverter in a Satellite A105,
http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-A105/remove-replace-LCD-screen-1.htm

FIRST! Always remove all power! AC adapter, (Charger), and battery.

Second! Observe anti-static guidelines!

Third! This ain't tough! It just looks hard. Once you see how simple this is, I'm sure you'll agree with me.
