Try connecting it to an external monitor, it could be that your laptop is either set to display through an external monitor or it could be set on a screen size too large for the laptop screen.

Hi there,

The way to find out if it's just the screen is to connect the laptop to an external monitor. Pay attention to the F keys when you connect the laptop. On most Toshibas, you'll see a small depiction on the F5 key of a laptop next to a monitor. You either have to press that key alone, or hold down the fn key and then press the F5 key and let go to transfer the signal to the external monitor.

If the external monitor shows up good and you can perform all other functions on your laptop while viewing the monitor, you need only replace the laptop LCD. If it does not display correctly, then you're into the next round of troubleshooting.

Hope it works as above.

Good Luck

This could be due to presence of static charges on the notebook or hardware malfunction of the video card or defective LCD display screen of the notebook. To resolve the issue, perform the following steps.
Step 1: Hard Reset
To perform a hard reset, please follow the steps listed below:

1. Unplug the AC adapter from the notebook PC and remove from any port replicator or docking station.
2. Remove the battery from the notebook battery compartment.
3. Press and hold down the power button for about 20 seconds.
4. Insert the battery and plug the AC adapter back into the notebook PC.
5. Press the power button to turn the notebook PC back on.
This will discharge the static charges from the notebook. Now check if the display works fine or not. Incase, if the issue persists, then the video card or LCD screen must have gone bad, and to isolate the same, please connect an external monitor to the notebook and check for the display on it. You can follow the steps below to connect an external monitor to the notebook.
1. Turn off the notebook.
2. Connect the monitor cable from the external monitor to the monitor port on the rear/side of the computer.
3. Connect the monitor to a power source and turn it on.
4. Press the Power button to turn on the computer.

At this time, please follow the instructions mentioned below for switching the display to the external monitor:

The notebook's video card supports three modes. Built-in screen only; external video only; and both on simultaneously (mirrored). If you're not seeing the image on the desired device(s), the notebook's video card is probably in another mode. Press FN + F4 to cycle through the display options: Notebook display, External monitor, both.

If you press FN + F4 once, the external monitor will display & there will be no Notebook LCD display.
If you press FN + F4 twice, the external monitor will display & there will be some shading on the Notebook LCD.
If you press FN + F4 thrice, both Notebook LCD & external monitor will display.

If the issue persists on the external monitor, then this could be due to defective video card on the notebook. However, if the display on the external monitor is fine, then the issue is with the LCD display panel of the notebook. In either cases, the notebook requires a detailed onsite diagnosis by a service technician.

If your notebook is under HP warranty, then contact HP to get the notebook repaired for free of cost.

Monitor going berserk


This could be due to corrupt display drivers on the notebook or the video card is going to die. Try updating the graphics drivers on the notebook and check for the issue.

If the issue still persists, then to isolate the exact cause of the issue, I recommend you to connect an external monitor to the notebook and check for the issue on it. If external monitor works fine, then the issue with LCD display screen of the notebook. In case, if the issue persists on external monitor then it states that the video card of the notebook is going to die.

To connect an external monitor to the PC, follow the steps listed below:

1. Turn off the notebook.
2. Connect the monitor cable from the external monitor to the monitor port on the rear/side of the computer.
3. Connect the monitor to a power source and turn it on.
4. Press the Power button to turn on the computer.

At this time, please follow the instructions mentioned below for switching the display to the external monitor:

The notebook's video card supports three modes. Built-in screen only; external video only; and both on simultaneously (mirrored). If you're not seeing the image on the desired device(s), the notebook's video card is probably in another mode. Press FN + F4 to cycle through the display options: Notebook display, External monitor, both.

If you press FN + F4 once, the external monitor will display & there will be no Notebook LCD display.
If you press FN + F4 twice, the external monitor will display & there will be some shading on the Notebook LCD.
If you press FN + F4 thrice, both Notebook LCD & external monitor will display.

If the issue persists on the external monitor, then this could be due to defective video card on the notebook. However, if the display on the external monitor is fine, then the issue is with the LCD display panel of the notebook. In either cases, the notebook requires a detailed onsite diagnosis by a service technician.

Can we connect 2 ecternal monitors to Toshiba A600 laptop


I am not sure about two external monitors but you can connect one editional monitor / HDTV with your computer. you just need to connect a VGA/HDMI cable to external dispaly and then press following keys together.
Fn, F4

There would be three options after that
1. display on computer screen only
2. display on external screen only
3. display on both.

You can select third option and it will work fine.

FS050UA , COMPAQ PRESARIO NOTEBOOK PC CQ50-210US the screen has lines and a black spot


Hi,
Turn on the notebook and press F10 to get into BIOS screen. Even if the lines and the black spot appears then the issue is with the internal hardware of the notebook.
To check further connect an external monitor to the notebook and press Fn and F4 keys on the keyboard to get the display on external monitor. If the external monitor display is fine then the issue is with the LCD screen or else the issue is with the Video card of the notebook.

My screen went black


If your Notebook's screen went blank you can do the following:--

1) Try booting with an external monitor. Connect the external monitor to the VGA port given to the Notebook.
Result:1 --- If the external monitor is working fine, then the problem is with LCD. If your Notebook is under warranty you can get it repaired free of cost.
If your Notebook is out of warranty you can go to HP.com and purchase the LCD screen (If you are in USA please go to this link :--- http://h20141.www2.hp.com/hpparts/)

Result 2:--- After connecting the external monitor even the display is not there, then it is the problem with the motherboard. If your Notebook is under warranty then you can avail free repair.
If your Notebook is out of warranty you can go to HP.com and purchase the Motherboard (If you are in USA please go to this link :--- http://h20141.www2.hp.com/hpparts/)
