Question about Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook
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?
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.
Instructions on how to replace the LCD:
