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?

Re: Toshiba A105 dispay

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.

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.

System time clock looses time

here is a guide to disassemble the laptop
Some motherboards have the battery soldered on ,i am not sure if yours is or not ,the batteries usually look like watch batteries.
you could always get a quote from an authorised toshiba support agent if you are uncomfortable opening the laptop.

The information on the hard drive will not be lost as it is saved on the hard drive itself.

I have a Toshiba A105 Laptop, Screen goes blank after windows....

Here are some easy things that can sometimes resolve this problem:
1) Sometimes there can be a static buildup on the mother board. Power off, remove the battery, remove the power cord and hold the power button in the on position for at least 30 seconds.
2) If that didn't work- Power down, remove the battery, remove the Hard Drive and memory modules and reinsert them. Try to power back up
If these things don't work, get back to me for some more ideas.

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

Power cord

If the power adapter no longer works it's time for a new one. Try brighton on ebay. They have great adapters with warrenty. I use them myself.

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
