Question about Toshiba Satellite A75-S211 Notebook

1 Answer

My Toshiba Satellite laptop has an issue with the video - the entire screen goes white. It happened a few times and I was able to use it for a period of time after it sat for a while, but now it goes white right at boot up. I'll see the initial Toshiba startup screen and then the whole screen just bleaches out. I've tried plugging in a separate monitor in case it was a screen display problem, but the monitor does the same thing. This leads me to believe that it's a video processing error. Or could it be a hard drive problem? I've also tried the recovery disk, but the screen still goes white, so I don't think it's a virus. Any solutions? I have done open heart surgery on the thing several times, until I finally replaced the DC jack with an external on a cord. If the solution can be fixed by replacing a component, I'm capable of that.

Hey i have a toshiba satellite L305-s5933\r\nand i have white or grey screen .i am ready replaced the screen and the lcd inverter and nothing happened. can anybody help me?


This could be a problem with your video card. If you have an actual removable video card then you might try to replace it. If your video card is built onto the mother board, then you are going to be in real trouble. At that point it might not be cost effective to try to repair it. Of course, since this will likely mean purchasing a part, Toshiba would likely help you to diagnose the issue since it will lead them to a sell. Hope this helps somewhat. Best Wishes!

My Toshiba A665-S6086's screen was blue and a redish pinkish earlier today and I have rebooted it a bunch of times. I can't figure out what the problem is. Is it something with the backlight?


Hi. Thanks for your question.
It is more likely that Inverter went is in your screen. They are relatively cheap and not that complicated to replace. To determine that it is your screen that is at fault you need to connect your toshiba to external screen. If the same things happen it is your Graphics card that's at fault. If it don't it is your inverter or connection/cable. When backlight goes bad entire screen becomes dark/darker then normal. Please see this video to have a look at inverter and where it is in your screen to get an idea.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S87niyGJfPs
Do not hesitate to ask more questions if this is needed. Thank You for using FixYa

My toshiba laptop screen goes white on startup. However, it does work OK with an external monitor. I replaced the lcd screen and still get a white screen. Could the inverter be the problem?


Had same issue, i replaced both the cable and the screen with 2 new screen and cables but still had the issue. my guess is its the connector on the motherboard where you plug in the LCD cable because my webcam dont even work (dont see it in device manager and my cam gets its power from the lcd cable)..

Laptop won't reboot


are you trying to put win 10 on as it can do this some time, can take upto 10 15 min to load, when the like is flashing its dos, when the screen is black its windows it takes some time for windows to find a driver and load it so the screen comes up. i've had this on a200's before. if you keep rebooting you will need to wipe the hard drive and start again. this also does this on win 7 and 8. win xp it does not do this as its full dos setup .

I had experienced similar problems with toshiba satellite pro M200. the problem is on the hardware on the IC chipset. You may consider to immediately send to toshiba for repair.

Usually this happens when a laptop running a pretty heavy process on I/O

White Screen Issues on Toshiba M115-S1061


connections could be good in ribbon cable
but still needs to be replaced

the white screen indicates that the inverter is still good
if the laptop works with desktop monitor, then video card is good
if you tap the lid to the lcd and it goes on and off ,ribbon cable for sure,
everytime you open and close the screen , it tugs on the ribbon cable also , only tape holding this in place

Display Issue


Toshiba makes a great laptop but the display video or lcd seem to go bad very quickly I have replaced the lcd in many to solve this problem but be aware a few also had bad video cards (unlikley in your case as the external video is fine) it would seem as the lcd panel has gone bad on yours. the average replacment is around $100.00 to $300.00 depending on where you purchase from.

Laptop monitor goes black


If you're working on the computer when that happens, it's not probably a power setting. Try to update your BIOS to the most current version at the toshiba support website (support.toshiba.com) & see what happens. Fixes the issue most of the time

I hope this helps.
