Question about Toshiba Tecra M2 Notebook

Help with Display Issues

I have a big problem with my Tecra M2. When the computer is on, every few minutes it locks up and then screen goes black. Most of the time it flashes back on with only a few problems (big pink square around the mouse, the mouse turns pink, or i get lines through the display) But latley the screen has been going black, and then I get a big white blotch in the middle of the screen, it changes colors, fades to black, then the computer restarts. I've tried re-installing all the drivers, but so far nothing works! Please help!!

Hi,
this appears to be a screen problem. either the cfl tubes on the way out. Or The Inverter.
The cheapest initial trial, is to replace the inverter, as this is the simplist to replace, it,s at the bottom centre of the screen, and can be accesssed by removing the screen bezel.
If you imagine the cfl tube being like a florescant bulb, and the inverter being the starter. if the inverter isn,t kicking up enough power. the bulbs not getting fully boosted up. also pink tinges can sometimes relate to inverter or cfl ( Laptop monitor tube/bulb ) if you search the internet their are tutorials, and links to these components. alternatively is to buy a replacement screen ( l.c.d panel ) however you might be looking in excess of £300 Or $600.

I have a cracked screen (toshiba tecra m2) and have an opportunity to buy a replacement screen from a tecra m2 S630 that is broken. Are the screens interchangeable?


Can't answer your screen question, but I can propose a workaround - your Toshiba laptop has a
monitor port on the back - you can plug in a standard monitor, and ignore the cracked screen
temporarily until you can replace it. hope this helps

The monitor port is the 15-pin analog VGA D-shell (female) port.

Dear anthonylopes,
Is this toshiba tecra m2 new? try to send them back to the store you bought from and ask for another new replacement concerning the full guarantee from toshiba! If it's not, try to run the bootable CD (Windows XP as an example) then, if you don't see the dialog or message from Instalation CD, I convince that the problem might be with your inverter!
GoodLuck!

Display fault


Sounds like a bad screen. If you hook up your computer to an external monitor and it's okay there, then that should confirm it.

this problem occurs in the video chipset,because when you hook up the external vga there is no display right?

Toshiba tecra M2 LCD Screen


A pinkish tint is indication that the backlight tube inside the screen is not fully lit. But then it goes black - meaning the tube shut down? That part don't make much sense - it's certainly possible, though.

Replacing tubes is pretty surgical so I wouldn't recommend it. Replacing the screen should be pretty darn easy. A good, used screen should be pretty cheap on eBay, so that's where I'd start.

Tecra M2 screen failure


Bad RAM probably bad system board. You say there are flashes usually you can check any available beep or flash codes. Sometimes they will tell you what has malfunctioned. Check the mfg. website or manual for diagnostic codes. As for the external monitor you will have to press function F4 or F8 or whatever function key you have with a monitor picture to switch to the external display. Hack
