Toshiba Satelite A105S2617 Power Problem

I had a problem back in march where horizontal black and white lines would appear while i was working on my laptop and gradually got worse until the whole screen would go black. Then eventually I couldn't turn it on ( the fans would run for a second and then everything would turn off, screen completely black). Toshiba was a royal pain and I ended up sending it in to be diagnosed and repaired (a pricey ordeal). They replaced the motherboard and told me that it was only guaranteed to work for something like 6 months( is this true?!?). Earlier today, I was working on my laptop and the screen turned to a somewhat static-y black and white problem (unlike the horizontal lines to gradual complete black that i had before). After this pattern, I shut the laptop off. Now, when I try to restart the computer, the fans will start up for about a second and then stop and it will not turn on. None of the lights are on unless the Power is plugged in. Is this another motherboard problem? If so, is there anything at all I can do to prevent this from occurring twice a year? (The laptop is less than 2 years old) Is it worth the money to keep replacing the motherboard or am i better off buying a new laptop? If the latter, are there any that you would recommend so I can avoid the massive headache that I've had with this laptop?

Thank you SO MUCH for your time and support,

Screen is black, shows no image. Sometimes it flicks and sometimes presents a lot of horizontal colored lines. Once or twice the screen worked for a couple of seconds, saw the windows' logo and then it...

Do a power drain, this may cause by an electrical charge in the motherboard itself,Im Not really sure how it affects the display of the computer but this method usually fix such problem like that, First, removed the battery then unplugged the AC adapter the press and hold the power button or the ON/OFF button for at least 30 seconds then connect the power supply back to your computer then turn it back on, if nothing happens, there is a possibility that the problem is with the LCD or monitor itself, maybe it will need a replacement...

Hope this will help...Your response is very much appreciated...

Where to connect the black and white wires from the lcd screen t

the black and white wires are most likely the antenna for the wireless networking card. When you locate the card you will see two small round plugs. Don't think it matters which one goes where.

I really hope this link helps. Like i said i'm pretty sure these are the wires for your wireless antenna.

Booting problems with my Toshiba Satellite P105

Try to reinstall the video driver from Safe mode.
It appears your hard disk is OK but the operating system and or registry is corrupted.
1. Try installing the video driver first.
2. If it still does not work, back up your data files in Safe Mode then re-install XP again, make sure you delete the partition and create a new partition and do a full NTFS format, not a quick format.
