It should support it.

If your laptop has a VGA output, connect the VGA cable from that to VGA input on monitor. Then hold down the function (Fn) key and press one of your F2 or F3 or whatever F# keys that has a pic of a monitor on it or it will say lcd/crt in blue lettering on it.

Hi,
you probably have a loss connection between the motherboard and screen or try to update your video driver.

Hi there, I have a toshiba satellite M60-BK3 Laptop. Is only four years old and from couple of days my LCD display is going on standby mode very fast. I try pressing and releasing that little switch which...


A couple things to try, 1 is boot the system in the safe mode (F8 menu at boot) and see if the LCD turns off there. You can also attach an external monitor and see if the external looses video too.
If the system looses video in the Safe mode and doesn't loose video with an external monitor, then the LCD backlight is likely failing
LCDs run about $100 to $150 on ebay

connect an external monitor on the unit and press the key combination to get the video on an  external monitor this is different on some laptops on HP dv 6000 for example it is FN F4 if external monitor work the problem is with your laptop display if the external monitor doesn't work its probebly your systemboard als check your memory.

Have toshiba satellite a130/a135 laptop screen red then goes blank


Try hooking up a external monitor. If you get video on the monitor and not the LCD, then your LCD may be in trouble.
If you don't get video on the external monitor, then your video card is gone.

Toshiba satellite A45 S120 won't boot. display is not working either. I hooked up another monitor, but the laptop does don't get past the "Windows XP" screen then does not respond.


remove battery, use just the power supply and see if BOOT occurs. if no correction then F2 and get into BIOS and check startup via HD/CD/Floppy sequence order.
check the bottom of the unit to see if small fan ir cycling, is it clean of debris????
unknown how long you have owned unit-check harrive function --remove and do external in other unit.

When I turn on the Toshiba Satellite A215-S7447 laptop, the monitor part of it doesn't turn on with the rest of the system.


Plug in an external monitor. use the <FN><F5> keys to toggle between the internal lcd and the external monitor. If the display external works and the lcd doesn't, most likely a bad inverter board.

My toshiba m105 it wasn't the inverter, it was the lcd itself, the TAB welds were no good but the lcd still worked it just had a 3" vertical blacked out area on the lcd.

Toshiba Satellite P25-S5092/ Computer will come on, but screen will not work. Wondering if it is most likely the LCD screen itself, the backlight or something else.


Hi,

If you have deduced that indeed the Toshiba Satellite P25-S5092 will boot and therefore operational except no display on the screen, you can always verify by connecting an external monitor. You of course would need to press Fn + F? (the F key with the small monitor icon).

As to the LCD screen having no display, often this could either be the CCF lamps (cold cathode florescent) and/or the inverter that powers it. One way to verify this is by shining a flashlight obliquely to the screen and a portion of your desktop would show albeit very very dark. Often, it is the inverter that fails. In some instances it could even just be a cold solder, loose connection or capacitors that have dried up, leaky or blistering.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Good morning, Kevin!
Sounds like an LCD problem. You can verify this by hooking up an external monitor. The external monitor will probably show a good display.
After verification of the problem,you may want to try to replug the LCD cable at both ends, just to see if that corrects the situation.
If that resolves things, all is well and good. If not, you may need a replacement LCD.
If the external monitor shows the same display, you may have a motherboard problem.
Hope this information is of some help.
