External Monitor connection issue

I saw your post answering a question regarding monitor use with the Toshiba Satellite A105-S4004 Laptop & I have a question I cannot find a direct answer to - would you mind helping me? I am trying to connect an external monitor (ViewSonic) that I just bought to my toshiba laptop & am not clear if I did it correctly b/c the screen on ext monitor is on, but obviously not connected right to the Toshiba. I bought it from staples & got a discount b/c it was the display & they didnt have the box or instructions but it's turned out to be a problem :-/ Can you either tell me how to connect it/troubleshoot, or direct me to where I could find that info? thanks SOOO much!

There is only one way to connect an external monitor to a laptop.Most laptops have an "FN" key. by simultaniously pessing the "FN"key and F7 key it toggles from laptop to external to both each time you press the keys.

How do i repair toshiba satellite a105 ribbon cable repair


Have you tried hooking up an external monitor to it and seeing if it works? I would try that first to rule out a video card issue. If the external monitor works fine, here is a website with pictures on how to disassemble the laptop to replace the screen:

Hi,
This is a common problem with inverter cables working loose at the hinge end but could be a problem with the inverter itself or just loose hinges.
Downloading new drivers won't resolve the problem.
Either way the case has to be split to check certain components so opening it up will void what warranty you have left.
I recommend the you take advantage of the warranty and send it in for Toshiba to repair as when the laptop comes back it will be OEM repaired and should work great for a good while.

Display Problem


Try connecting an external monitor if this also shows a "bad" picture then probably the graphics chip on the laptop is faulty.

Toshiba Satellite A105


Have you tried connecting to an external monitor? Try that. If the picture is perfect on the external monitor then the VGA port is OK but there is a problem with communications between the system board and the screen connector.

Hope this helps. Kindly leave a rating.

Thanks :)

Toshiba a105 screen goes blank


Sounds like GPU failure. unfortunately its nigh on impossible to replace without replacing the whole board which can be expensive. I saw a few on ebay for around £120.
