Hi! I was suprised to find this page... I hope you can give me an idea about this problem. It obviously just went out of warrenty and now the screen is occassionally going off when bent back at a normal viewing angle. If I pull it towards me, almost closed, it works fine. When it is off, I can still see the desktop in the background, its almost as if the desktop light is off but the stuff is still being shown on the desktop. Very strange. Is it just the connection of the video to the notebook, or does the LCD need to be replaced? Thank you very much for any assistance you can offer!

There are many reasons why a computer might not display. The most obvious are
1. Monitor not plugged in (mains or computer), powered on etc
2. The video/graphics card which translates the computer's operations to a format the monitor can display may be faulty, set to a resolution the monitor can't handle
3 The video card may not be seated properly in its slot
4. The section of the motherboard dealing with graphics may be faulty.
5. The power supply being distributed by the motherboard to the graphics card slot may be not working/insufficient.
Hope this gives you some idea of the possible answers to your question. A lot more detail on the computer, graphics card, monitor etc is required to give a more relevant, less generalised answer.
All the best
The problem isn't your laptop because the fault is coming from your charger. Blinking of led light in your charger indicated that it goes in out-of-regulation. To confirmed the fault you need to use another charger with the same output voltage and current ratings. Once confirmed that the laptop will power on with other charger, you need to replaced your own. There some shop that repair this faulty charger, you must find one and ask for estimate how much will be charged to get fix to have an idea whether to buy a new one.
Hope I help you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.
Has the laptop been subject to a Bios Update that went wrong? I would browse toshiba.com and speak to the technical department. I found then extremely helpfull. Unfortunately if it is a Bios issue, a new motherboard from alibaba.com is the answer. Hope it helps.
That is normal, you need to reinstall drivers after installing the system from a generic Windows CD. Here is toshiba download page Click and follow instructions to download drivers. You may need also to reinstall network, video, modem, and pad drivers if you want to achieve full functionality.
I had this same problem sometime ago and I first reversed my last action and I still did not get back my wireles. So out of desperation I backed up my files and made use of the recovery disk that came with my laptop, Although I had to wait through the process of deleting the contents of my computer first, after the operating system was reinstalled, to my suprise my wireless connection was initialised and it started working. All I had to do after that`was to point it to the right wireless network to work with. I hope this solves your problem Sahaja.
