Question about Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook

1 Answer

Toshiba A105 dispay

I have an 18 months old A105 Toshiba laptop who is lately giving me a hard time. After 20 minutes of using it and working fine, the display is shaking at first, then turning into a black screen with horrizontal grey lines....forcing me to just shut it down. If I let it cool for about an hour I can get it to work for about the same time (10-20 mins) until it's doing it again.

Does anybody have an idea of what could be the problem?
Thanks,
Anna

This is usually a sign that the LCD is going to die and needs replaced but it could just be loose.

If you are comfortable with computers and have some knowledge you could try taking the face plate off of the monitor and making sure the connection plugged into the back of the LCD is securely fastened.

The laptop could also be overheating. Try setting it on a table and using it with nothing covering up the vent holes. see if that helps.

Internet only works for 20 minutes after restart.


Yep. Guessing the router is older. They don't last long. Modems live forever but routers average 6-18 months. Other things are funny about this. Your router works on 2.4 ghz. Cordless phone and microwaves do too. if you have a cordless base close to the router it can knock it offline. If your router is old get a new one. MAKE SURE IT IS AN "N" SERIES AND NOT A "G" SERIES

Toshiba A105 S2719 screen problem


Is this behavior irrespective of power condition of the laptop, ie both ac and battery?
Please see bios bulletins for your system here. Sometimes a bios update can correct this kind of problem...
However, also note this article.
In the probable event that none of that works, it's probably your inverter or backlight (EL) panel, both of which can be replaced. The white lines are not a good sign. See other thread discussions of same here and here.
Google "diagnose laptop monitor failure" for more, or see this repair guide.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Hi,
The problem with the LCD screen , if the external display is working fine. The LCD needs a replacement. The same thing happened on my Dell and we had to replace the Lcd. The same can occur because the LCD cable gets damaged when you open or close the LCD


Thanks

maybe the shop formatted the hard drive including the recovery partition where all the files should be .so your disc cant find it .
if you can boot up into safe mode then use windows restore function to restore to an earlier time,if not you may have to get a set of recovery discs from toshiba

good luck
