Question about Toshiba P25-S670 Notebook
My Toshiba P25-S670 ( PSP26U-00DJ8RB ) with windows media center edition has crashed. All I had was a black screen. So I ran the ( Toshiba Recovery and Applications/Drivers DVD Satellite P25 Series Disk ). After running the recovery disk, there was no improvement it would start up occasionally with either a 640 X 480 resolution that can’t be changed to anything else, or a blank display with a solid black screen. The operating system seems to be loading properly because even with the blank display I can usually reboot by pressing the windows key then the U key to turn off the computer, and then the R key to restart the computer. When it restarts its usually with a (solid black screen about 99% of the time) “you can’t even see the mouse curser”. Once in a while it opens in 640 X 480 resolution and cannot be adjusted. It also has vertical lines across the whole screen whenever the display is not solid black.
I think it’s probably the video card. ( NVIDA GeFORCE FX ) What do you think? If it is. How big and expensive a job is it to replace the video card. And is the video card a part of the motherboard? If it is. How big and expensive a job will that be? This is still a great computer and I am not ready to junk it yet
I'm not positive, but I believe your video adapter card "IS" part of the motherboard. This is not something you want to undertake unless you are familiar with the proceedure. Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance.
