Nice blue screen

Hello and thank you in advance. My son unfortunately thought the A35 was made of rubber, dropped it and yes the expected occured. Nice IBM blue since the screen is obviously broken. Are these expensive components to replace and if so, do you reccomend simply chalking this up to experince and purchasing a new notebook?

Thanks much,

Re: Nice blue screen

The actual cost of a varies on where you get it. But you have to be careful as not all LCD Screens are the same geometrical shape, so your best bet, if you want to replace the LCD itself, is to get a new screen direct from Toshiba. The physical process of replacing the screen may cause a headache as well, so the decision is deffinelty yours to make. Toshiba will not sell parts directly, they are going through a 3rd party vendor for parts, and what I can tell from thier site is that a new screen will probably run upwards of $300. A service center might be cheaper, but you'd have to price shop on that.

Hope this helps!

Re: Nice blue screen

It can cost minimum $400.00 to $800.00 to repair and when you can purchase a laptop from Staples or Fry's, etc. for as little as $395.00 on sale it seems hardly worth it. The new computers are better and have many more features to choose from. Toss it and get a new one.

Yes, it's a screen problem. It could be a loose connection of the LCD and the motherboard or the lid lights gone bad. You can fix that by either resetting the connection of the screen and the motherboard or replacing the whole screen. You would need a technician to do that.

Vaio dropped

I assume you are referring to the Blue Screen of Death that occurs in Windows. If you dropped your Vaio laptop and are now experiencing the BSoD, then most likely there is a broken hardware component such as the hard drive in your laptop. The drop could have possibly caused a hard drive error which resulted in a corrupted Windows installation, or a faulty hard drive. You could try reinstalling Windows or inserting another hard drive.

Blue screen of death


Well, that spesific error mesage is because of a hard drive failure. I notice that this same problem occurs more in portable devices, such as laptops. The thing is, that if the laptop was droped during the days previous of this error, the mechanism will still run but the disc will have so many bad sectors that you will not be abvle to use it anymore.

I would suggest that you try formatting the drive first and see if it works, otherwise get a new drive. Hope this can help you.

Best regards

You can't buy from any where in Australia. It is only can get form faulty motherboard and re-put to your motherboard, otherwise you have to changed whole motherboard.

It is laptop not desktop, every parts all have been solder on the one PCB board, which all on one board.

Found a generic A35 manual, not specific to your Series , however, you may find it useful. I've downloaded this to my computer. Let me know if you want it sent to you via email drop. The manual is over 200 pages, in pdf format.
