Check your settings in the display properties. The problem could be related to some display or power saver options. This applies if no reason means you do not touch your laptop when tthe problem appears. Otherwise it could be a wire problem as you have already supposed.

Trying to connect laptop to 46 in sony bravia, will show desktop but will not show the internet or anything else. please help


When you have the laptop connected to the telivision are you running both displays? In other words is the screen on for the laptop and the telivision at the same time? Sometimes if both displays are on you cannot run programs on both. When you use the FN key and press the display button(usually F5) it should cycle thru each time you press it. Try pressing it until you only have the display showing on the televison only. Doing this should make the telivision the main display.

Toshiba R100 suddenly very slow(!)


I'd suggest sending it back to where you bought it, this sounds a lot like a factory problem and it should be covered under warranty.

Toshiba R100 keyboard not working


I did the same some two years ago, with the R100 on. I switched everything off, dismounted the computer body (not the screen)up to the last screw, and dried that sweet coffee from everywhere where I found it. Mostly this was the keyboard and mouse. The motherboard is luckily protected by some plastic sheet.

Regarding the keyboard, after disconnecting it from the motherboard, I washed it completely under flowing water and then let it dry for several days. In the meantime, I used a USB one. Since then, I used the same keyboard for two years until now, when it died, apparently rather from some motherboard-related reason than water. So I think - you may get a new keyboard, but if youre lucky, you may as well revive this old one.

Taking apart a Toshiba R100


Probably, could have some slide catches at the top edge of the keyboard instead, need a thin blade screw driver oh lift the keyboard. Some laptops mark the screws with the letter K in indicate keyboard screws, some keyboard screws may be hidden under the battery pack, CD/DVD drive.

We use these and several times I have had to pull the battery, disconnect the power cord and hold the power button for 30 seconds (count slow). After that, it boots fine.

Right click on the computer's destop and view the display properties.

Click on the two squares it shows and try to set your main screen as default.

NO POWER ON


Try removing the battery and power cable then holding down the power button for 10 seconds. Reconnect the battery and power cable then press power again to turn on. It's usually a hibernation problem. Some newer toshibas also had a motherboard problem. I'd look up your model on the support section of www.toshiba.com and see if there is an updated motherboard driver install for your make.
