Question about Toshiba Tecra A3 Notebook
The computer screen won't turn on,
you hear the computer starting up then nothing happens
Solution #3 Guest, same problem with my laptop. When I turn on the laptop and if I see the toshiba screen in the beginning the laptop starts well. If i dont see the toshiba screen, the computer turns to on, but monitor wont. However, i dont hear the Operating system sound as well. I even tried with external monitor, same thing. And at last as Guest told he bangs, I even do that stuff to make it open lol. Any idea how to fix this problem? Probably some connection?

I'm having the same problem with my Toshiba Tecra A3. Sometimes the monitor is on, most of the time after reboot I dont see anything happens. I shutdown and bang the computer lol and sometime it starts to open.
"The most direct way to do that is to connect an external monitor to the laptop (there is most likely a monitor connection on the back or a side of the laptop.)."
I tried this one as well, no sign, same problem and same solution.

My 1st (Routine) Question is:
(01) Do you have *ANY* other information *at all* regarding this issue?
(A) Research that might have already been done on this issue
(B) Things that might have been tried to determine or to correct the issue
(C) *Any* other issues w/ your computer - particularly any issues that corresponded w/ the onset of this issue.
(D) Something someone else might have told you, suggested or recommended regarding this issue (including contact w/ the manufacturer).
I guarantee you, you cannot give us too much information. The more we know about this issue, the faster and more accurately we can get it diagnosed for you. :)
We'll need to determine if the problem is w/ your computer's LCD panel (monitor).
The most direct way to do that is to connect an external monitor to the laptop (there is most likely a monitor connection on the back or a side of the laptop.).
(02) Connect a *known working* monitor to the laptop's external monitor connection.
(03) Turn the monitor power on.
IF you can do the following w/ the laptop monitor in the closed position, please, do so.
(04) Turn the laptop power on. (Make sure the A/C adapter is connected. (We don't want to confuse the issue w/ a low or dead battery.)
(05) Quickly but gently, (right after pressing the power on button) place the laptop's monitor in the closed position.
(06) If the laptop's LCD panel has failed, we would expect you to be able to see your laptop's display now on the external monitor.
If that is the case then the monitor either needs to be repaired or replaced.
That is the 1st phase of the trouble-shooting process for this type of issue.
(07) Please, post back here w/ the results of your test and answers to Questions (01/A-D). Please, include questions, observations, etc as well.
** Please, don't rate the experts' solutions
