Question about Toshiba Satellite A105-S4004 Notebook
I was in the process of upgrading the RAM and realized I had the wrong size. I receeded the existing RAM and went to power the system and now have a white display screen. The hard drive is spinning and I can tell it is going through the normal boot process but I continue to have the white screen. The memory is in correctly and the only thing else I did was blow the fan out with compressed air. I even went as far as to disassemble the laptop and check to make sure the video connection had not come loose from the motherboard. PLEASE HELP!
Thank you in adavance.
First, hook up the laptop to an external monitor. Turn it on and try to get into the bios.
How compressed was the air you used to blow out the heatsink, and when you blew it out, did you have it unplugged and the battery removed? When you spin the heat sink fan, it creates current, like a little generator.
I gotta tell you, just removing memory won't cause the problem you're describing.
I've had several Toshibas with lcd issues, mostly caused by the onboard video modules on the motherboard getting hot.
If you can get video to an external monitor, let me know.
