Question about Toshiba Satellite A105-S4074 Notebook

1 Answer

Laptop freezing up

The monitor gets completely distorted and grainy and gradually freezes up. You can still see the screen and slightly make out what is on it but the mouse will not move. Tried hooking up a monitor but it didn't not work. It appears the system freezes.

Could be several things such as Bad Ram, Bad program/bug running in the background, Processor overheating. or as bad as a/Bad Motherboard. If warranty, then call Toshiba otherwise here are some solutions to experiment with. 1) If bad ram - try swapping with a friend who has similar type of ram 2) Reload or Debug widows 3) Blow out vents, especially around heat sink and fans 4) Have a service shop verify then if bad motherboard and shop online for cheap used motherboard. Keep Me posted. - Scotty

    If you're going to give me a thanks for trying rating, you're gonna have to tell me more about what you did or didn't try. Notice that I gave you more information about what the problem could be then you gave me regarding the problem and what you tried yourself. I guess it serves me right for trying to help people for free......

Your laptop is basically supplied with 500 MB RAM which is not really enough for streaming videos. Your maximum is 1.5 GB and I would upgrade it to this with a 1 GB RAM, or at least another 0.5 GB

Hello,

the fault could be from your laptops graphic card.

Connect your laptop to an external monitor, and if the screen still freezes on the external monitor, then the fault is truly from your graphic card.

But if the external monitor displays well, then it means the problem is from your screen inverter.

From which ever angle the fault may be coming from, you need to take the laptop to a repairer to fix the problem for you. I don't think either of the fault is what you can handle.

Take care.

My Acer Laptop screen fades or goes out when moved


Try reseating the video cable/connector. Also connect an external monitor to the external video port, power up the monitor first then boot up the laptop. The video image should automatically divert to the monitor, if you see a normal video image then the video card is OK and the problem most likely the LCD screen.
