Question about Toshiba Tecra M2 Notebook
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!!
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.
