Toshiba M55-S3315 has a black screen

Toshiba M55-S3315 screen is black. I've re-booted, but no luck in it coming back. I currently have it hooked up to my desktop monitor to have some use out of it. Please let me know what you think the problem might be. I am not a computer expert at all.

Your screen is shot. Or the connector on the left side has come loose from the motherboard where it connects. I will give you a link below for the service manual to your M55. It is not difficult to change the screen out and you can find them on ebay for under 100 bucks. The second link below is a visual guide to replacing the screen.

Good luck ParrotHead PC Repair

Yikes. I'm not calling you a thief, but 99% of the time when you encounter a computer with a password on the hard drive and the possessor of the computer does not know the password, the computer is stolen.

My toshiba M55 Satellite will not boot up. My


Take the hard drive out and see if anything comes up on the screen. If so, replace the hard drive.

Does the screen get any brighter when you turn on the laptop? If not, the lcd cable, or power inverter may have gone bad.

Did you have any blue screen of death errors, or any other kind of errors before the screen problem? If so, you may have bad memory. Do you hear any beeps?

Satellite (A75S206) runs well from outlet but never from battery. Was told that mobo can't accept dc. Need new mobo. True?


hello loyd516,

Have you tried a new battery? They are much much cheaper, and a whole lot easier to replace than a motherboard.

Here are replacement batteries that I found searching with Google.
http://www.google.com/products?q=Satellite+A75-S206+battery&hl=en

According to Toshiba, there has been a battery recall for your specific model.
If that is the case I would definitely contact Toshiba support about it. Maybe you will get a free battery out of the deal. Who knows.
Here is the link and the list(your model is highlighted)

My Screen might be out??


dear ...,

when switching on te laptop, does it make noises, does the fan run, the CD/DVD-drive
LED shows green light and the harddisk rattle little bit? - good for you if it does, as the system still boots up !

to check if the LCD screen is broke and not the graphics card malfunctioning:

hook it up to an external monitor (one usually used with desktop PCs)
when laptop is switched off, using the 3-pin input in the back or to the right side of your laptop, and make sure the external monitor's power cord is properly fused...

Now switch on the external monitor first and then your machine again, and wait for the laptop boot messages on the monitor!
see anything? if yes the laptop screen is broke and needs to be replaced.
If still the external monitor stays black the onboard graphics card is up in smoke and you're in big trouble then.

Good luck finding out!
