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.

Sounds like the display adapter is either failing or has a bad driver.
Does it do the same in safe mode? If so its a bad display adapter,
If it does not do it , then it needs the corrupted or missing display driver.

SOURCE: toshiba blank screen

i had the same problem and i replaced the inverter but that did not work then i replaced the backlight and no problems since then.
This seems to be a problem with alot of toshibas and i dont know why they install these useless backlights. Backlights are supposed to outlive the laptop.
I paid about 20 dollars for the backlight rather than pay $200 dollars for the whole LCD but it is a very tricky job so be very carefull.

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:

Toshiba screen is blank ans light on under F10 key.


Is the screen completely blank, or just dim? If it is dim, then most likely your lcd power inverter is bad, and needs to be replaced, which is the cheapest part to replace. If it is completely blank then you should try to hook up an external monitor to the laptop, and don't get any video, then most likely there is an issue with your motherboard or video card. The external monitor method sometimes needs you to press a combination of the Fn key and another F key in order to switch from your laptop lcd to an external monitor.

try the computer with an external monitor, if it works correctly then it's the monitor that has broke and you need it replaced.
otherwise, if it does the same things on the external monitor...
I would check in order:
1)RAM memory
2)Motherboard
if the problem is only after windows boot, try changing the video driver, the problem might be caused by overheating video Chip, but that should freeze the system too...try also to remove the dust from all the heatsinks with canned air...

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 :)

When you turn it on, do you hear any activity? Motors start working, fan spinning, etc…? Try to connect an external monitor and start the laptop. Check if you can get any video on the external monitor. If the external monitor is dead too, try to remove the battery and start the laptop from the AC adapter. It also might be a bad memory module or a bad connection between the memory and the motherboard. Try to reseat the memory module, move it to the second slot. If you have two memory modules, try to remove them one by one and turn on the laptop. Also, try to remove the hard drive and see if you can boot it to Toshiba screen without the hard drive installed.


There is no special button to reseat the BIOS settings. To do it, you’ll have to access the BIOS using F2 button on the laptop start up, but as you have no video, you cannot access the BIOS and set it to defaults.
