What model is your Toshiba? I haven't heard of one having a weird multi-display like that, so more than likely it's a problem with your graphics chip than a feature. Look for a function key that either says CRT/LCD, or has a picture of a monitor. Hold down the Fn key and press that function button and see if it makes a difference.

Is the system locked up at that screen?

Why Toshiba Satellite A665 Laptop won't start?


Have you tried pressing space bar (maybe its in hibernation mode) ?

or try holding power button for a few seconds (10) then turn it back on.

as a last resort you could try take the battery out, disconnect it from the power adapter, hold down the power button for 30 seconds and then place the battery back in and the power adapter and try powering it on?

Problem restarting toshiba satellite c660 from hibernation mode


Go into power options, select hibernate and uncheck the box to the left, this will disable the feature, microsoft worse piece of software. This will free up disk space and improve performance, best of all no sleeping computer to wake up.

How to replace LCD panel on Toshiba Satellite M105-S3004 Notebook?


Plastic Display Bezel is not as simpy as you think. It is made of space-age plastic.

Procedure is the same as for a Satellite M110 series, and M115 series Notebook PC,

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-M115/remove-inverter-replace-lcd-screen.htm

Just to add;

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-M105/take-apart-notebook-1.htm

After the Screw Covers are removed, and the screws, from the Display Bezel, the Bezel can be 'popped' off.

The Bezel has plastic protrusions, or tabs, extruded from it's plastic frame. These tabs snap into place in the Display Cover. (Top cover of laptop)

There are tabs formed on the inside edge of the Display Cover, that the tabs from the Display Bezel, snap into.

When I started years ago, I used a guitar pick to ease the Bezel up, so I could get my fingertips under it. (OUTSIDE edge of Bezel. Not inside edge where the LCD screen is)

Now I don a set of anti-static gloves, and ease the inside middle edge of the Bezel, (LCD screen side), up. Then I start working towards one corner, until this portion pops free, and then I go towards the other corner.

Once you work a side loose, and the bottom, the rest of the Bezel starts popping free.

Although the Display Bezel looks to be flimsy, as stated previously it is made of a space-age plastic. Pretty tough stuff, really.
Just go slow, and use care.

When you hear the tabs pop up for the first time, you may think you have broken something. Nope.
Just wanted to state to ease your mind.

Make SURE the LCD screen you are purchasing is THE correct one.
An LCD screen, and the screen Inverter, are a MATCHING pair.

Crossover the manufacturer name, and model number on the back of the LCD screen, to the new one.
Or go with the LCD screen replacement manufacturer's information. B

If so, be sure there is a Return option, if the new replacement LCD screen proves to be the wrong one

[ An LCD screen does not produce light. It needs an additional light source.
A Backlight is the additional light source.

A Backlight is a CCFL.
Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp. (Bulb)
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

(Some of the newer LCD screens use LED lights for a Backlight.
The Toshiba Satellite M105-S3004 Notebook PC, uses a CCFL for a Backlight)

A screen Inverter is used to convert the electricity (Power) from the laptop, for the Backlight, and the LCD screen ]

Need to do a system restore


You can try by going to help by the start buttton and searching on restore/recovery and doing so. Or you can go to start, control panel and looking to see if there is a restore\recovery icon. Lastly you would have to reinstall your operating system by putting in the cd and rebooting after pressing F2 and selecting boot from CD. This WILL cause all user data to be lost so if you need it, it must be backed up first.

Theres no display on screen


by shutting the screen you have activated power saving followed by hibernation.when you lift screen and press power a screen appears telling you what programs are currently running and your icon to enter.by removing battery you have (computer term) illegally shut down,possibly with programs running,which incidently is a good way to loose sys32. which would require a repair or install.
Not ur case as of yet.restart ur pc and press f 8 about 4 seconds later .black screen with options appear ,navigate to start windows with last good configuration.windows will restart with last good settings .
if you choose to go asleep whilst a program is running you can configure windows not to go into power save mode or hibernation,turn off hd,turn off pc etc .
if you right click mouse in any space on desktop,select properties,screensaver,power.....you can change settings there to suit.
