    There is a strip of unutilised screen space to the right of the screen after reinstalling windows XP. How do I get rid of it and make use of the entire screen.

    Ditto, have experienced same problem, after fresh install of xp.

    is intermittent though, ie. will reboot to full screen.

    Have decided not to go near resolution settings as this sets off the problem.

You need to install the correct driver for the display adapter, Nvidia card.

I don't get the meaning of your description, but you can try to adjust the resolution of the screen by click the space of the desktop, choose "attribute", then choose "setting",change the "screnn resolution" to 1024x768 pixel.if it does not work, reinstall the windows opration system.

Display divided into 3 parts


LCD screen cracked, and Three even strips going across? Doubtful. Haven't seen it but I always have my mind open.

Three strips that are irregularly shaped? Look like glass that has cracked?
'Jagged edges'?

LCD screen is broken.

Three even strips indicates to me, that there may be a problem with the Video Cable. Then the screen Inverter is next in the diagnoses.
My money is on the Video Cable.

ALL power removed, Anti-Static Precautions FOLLOWED, I would check out the graphics chipset first.

1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port on the laptop.
Left rear side. This is an example of a VGA Cable, and VGA connector. (VGA port on a laptop ),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

(Color of connector does Not matter. It is generally Blue, though)

You can use a CRT type of monitor, (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor if it has a VGA cable.

2) Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on.

There are at least 3 display options available;
1) Laptop internal monitor ONLY
2) Laptop internal monitor AND external VGA monitor
3) External VGA monitor ONLY

Press, and hold down on the Fn key, and at the same time tap once on the F5 key. (The F5 key is the Display Toggle-Over key)

No display on external VGA monitor?
Hold the Fn key down again, and tap once more on the F5 key.

Is the display on the external VGA monitor, the same as the internal monitor of the laptop?

Problem is the graphics chipset.

Display is fine on the external VGA monitor?
Problem is the Video Cable, screen Inverter, or LCD screen.

Video Cable:

A) http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-A105/big/Toshiba-Satellite-A105-14.jpg

Switch Cover removed, Keyboard removed. Shows you where the Video Cable plugs into the motherboard.

B) http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-A105/big/Toshiba-Satellite-A105-21.jpg

Palm Rest Cover you can see the white rectangular connector, for the motherboard side of the Video Cable, at the top left.
It's above the black cable, and near the screw hole.

The Video Cable leads from the motherboard, up through the left Hinge, and into the Display Assembly.
From there it connects to the screen Inverter, and back of the LCD screen.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Toshiba-Satellite-A105-6017B0050801-LCD-Video-Cable-Genuine-OEM-Laptop-TESTED-/290754851160?forcev4exp=true&forceRpt=true

In the photo, (You can hover your mouse cursor on it to enlarge), the right side connector plugs into the back of the LCD screen.

The black connector to the far left connects to the motherboard.
The small white connector at the top with the Red, Green, Black, etc wires, connects to the screen Inverter.

(The small Black cable, that comes out from the black motherboard connector, is a Ground wire )

Due to the close proximity of the Video Cable to the left Hinge, it can be pulled on from just normal opening, and closing of the laptop over time.

This means the Video Cable connection on the motherboard side could be loose, or the LCD screen side, or both.

The diagnoses is to PHYSICALLY check BOTH connections. A loose connection at the motherboard, or at the back of the LCD screen could be so small in distance, that you will not see it with the human eye.

Could also result in damage to the Video Cable.
View the Video Cable with the Switch Cover removed, and see if there are any obvious signs of damage to the sheath of the cable.

If there is there could be damage to the tiny wires inside the Video Cable. (Stretched/Broken)

Use a multimeter set to OHMs, to check all wires inside the Video Cable for continuity, or have a 'Mom and Pop' computer store check it for a few bucks, or replace the Video Cable.

Video cable connections are tight? Video cable continuity check checks out OK?
Screen Inverter.

The test for a screen Inverter is to use a sensitive multimeter.
Read fairly expensive.

http://www.fonerbooks.com/test.htm

Not having access to a sensitive multimeter that you can use, means just replacing the screen Inverter. Seems like 'part changing', and it is, but you have to work with what you've got.

http://www.sparepartswarehouse.com/Toshiba,Satellite,A105,Laptop,Inverters.aspx

Find THE model number for your laptop, and the correct screen Inverter. A screen Inverter, and an LCD screen are a MATCHED unit.

Screen Inverter is checked out to be OK, or replaced, and symptoms are still the same, the problem is the LCD screen.

Remember, the first part of the diagnoses was to see if the divided parts were EVEN going across, or jagged and irregularly shaped.

Jagged in shape, and not even strips going across, means cracks in the LCD screen.
Replace.

HOW TO USE AN EXTERNAL MONITOR


Hello,

Your note book has a serial port at either of the sides or at the back just below the screen. It is rectangular in shape.

The cable from your external monitor will fit in to this port perfectly. connect it and power your monitor and Notebook. You should get a display on your external monitor.

Cheers!

Blinking toshiba satellite A 05-54547 problem


A blinking monitor just might be a loose connection of the main display cable that runs up the left side of the display and connects to the motherboard. Also check the two wire cable attaching the inverter to the screen. The bezel of the screen will have to be removed as well as the power strip and keyboard to check the display cable. Remove the lcd screen from its hinges and look behind the display, there is a flat cable that plugs into the top edge of the screen. This cable has a habit of getting loose and falling out of the socket.

Now there is a chance that the BIOS of the laptop needs to be updated. There are many instances where the display starts acting up and a BIOS update is the correct action to take. Go to the Toshiba support site, put in the model number and then put in your operating system. Scroll down to where the BIOS is listed under downloads/drivers. Download and install the new BIOS, reboot.
