Toshiba Satellite P105-S9722 white screen on stat up


Don't assume. Diagnose.

Problem could be graphics chipset, Video Cable, screen Inverter, or LCD screen.

Graphics chipset:

1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port, on the laptop.
(Back of laptop - Blue)

Example of a VGA Cable, and a VGA connector, (Port on laptop),

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

If you have a CRT type of monitor (Looks like a small TV), you can use it, or a flat LCD screen monitor with a VGA cable.

The Toshiba Satellite P105-S9722 Notebook PC, also has a DVI connector on the back of the laptop. (Next to the blue VGA port)
You can connect a flat LCD screen monitor with a DVI cable.

Example of a DVI Cable, and DVI connector,

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

2) Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on.
By factory default the display should be on the external monitor.

If not;
Press, and hold down on the Fn key, (Bottom left), and tap once on the F5 key.
The F5 key is the Display Toggle-Over key.

You will see a list. It 'hot cycles' through the list, until you come to the external monitor device you are using.

External monitor display shows no white screen?
Your graphics chipset is good.
Go on with the diagnoses.

Problem is with the Video Cable, or in the Display Assembly.
(Screen Inverter or LCD screen)

Video Cable:
The Video Cable attaches to the motherboard under the Switch Cover, and about at the F2 and F3 keys.
It then routes under the left Hinge, and up into the Display Assembly.

From there it connects to the screen Inverter, and back of LCD screen,

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-p105/big/toshiba-satellite-p105-11.jpg


From;

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-p105/take-apart-1.htm

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-P105-P100/remove-lcd-screen-inverter-1.htm

Due to normal opening, and closing of the laptop, the Video Cable may become pinched, and pulled on.
This can lead to a simple loose connection of the Video Cable TO the motherboard, or TO the back of the LCD screen.

(The screen Inverter connection should also be checked)

Visual inspection will NOT do. You need to physically see if you can plug the motherboard connection, and LCD screen connection in.
It could be just loose enough you won't be able to see it, but will affect the display.

Sheath of Video Cable needs to be visually inspected for signs of damage. Signs of damage to the sheath, may also mean damage to the tiny wires inside the sheath of the Video Cable.
(Stretched/Broken)

Assurance that the Video Cable is not the problem, means checking out, or have checked out, with a multimeter set to OHM's, to run a continuity check of all the wires.
('Mom and Pop' computer store. See if they will check it)

Or simply replace the Video Cable. (After you fire up the laptop, and see if loose connections was, or was not the problem)

http://www.batterysupport.com/toshiba-satellite-p105-s9722-cable-p-377633.html


(Left side connects to LCD screen. Right/Top connector goes to motherboard. Right/Bottom connector goes to screen Inverter)

Video Cable checks out OK?
Go on to screen Inverter.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/TOSHIBA-Satellite-P105-S9722-laptop-lcd-Screen-Inverter-/250759700669


The plastic thin frame in front of the LCD screen, is the Display Bezel.
The screen Inverter is behind the Display Bezel, and mounted at a location towards the bottom of the LCD screen frame.

A screen Inverter is tested with a sensitive multimeter. Read fairly expensive,

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

It is for this reason that those who do not have access to a sensitive multimeter, usually just replace the screen Inverter.
(Also low cost, and ease of access to replace)

Screen Inverter checks out OK?
Problem is the LCD screen,

[ Bet it's the video cable, or screen Inverter, that is the problem ]

[ Primer:
An LCD screen cannot produce light by itself. It needs an additional light source.
A Backlight is the additional light source.

A Backlight can be a CCFL, (Or two of them), or a series of LED's.
(Light Emitting Diode)

The Toshiba Satellite P105-S9722 Notebook PC, uses One CCFL for a Backlight.

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

Average thickness is 2mm. That is a little larger than 1/16th of an Inch.
Average length is almost as long, as the LCD screen is in height,

General example,

http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2007/12/09/replace-laptop-backlight-ccfl-lamp/

A CCFL contains -> Mercury, just like Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses.

A screen Inverter is used to convert the power from the laptop, for the Backlight, and LCD screen.
90 Percent of the Time the fault is a bad screen Inverter.

Primer over.

Just a quick note, before you go replace the entire screen, make sure it's not just a wiring problem. If so, it doesn't cost as much to replace the wires connecting the screen to the laptop. LCD's are much more expensive!
As for replacing the display, this website has information on the display, along with the ability to purchase it from their site. http://www.pelltechnology.com/Toshiba/Laptop/Toshiba-Portables-Satellite-P105-Series-S6024/Toshiba-Satellite-P105-S6024-LCD-Screen-Replacement-P350475.asp

You possibly have a LCD screen failing, but to be 100% sure, you should hook your laptop to an external monitor, and see if the display is good . Any desktop monitor will work. If your display is good, you know your LCD on your laptop is failing, and if it is the same display as your laptop, you know you have a video chip problem on your laptop motherboard.

Cannot start up the laptop


Hi there.
That really quick flash of a blue screen is the blue screen of death and there is a possibility that the error could be memory related.
What you have to do is remove and clean the system memory and the slots the memory goes into.
Take out the battery and the AC power (if attached)
The memory will be located behind a panel underneath the laptop, unscrew the panel unclip the memory, clean the brass contacts and the slots with a clean, dry, soft paintbrush, then reseat the memory making sure it clips into place, replace the memory cover and reboot the laptop, see if it lets you into windows.

Please post back with the results and more help if needed, good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

  4. Plug the power back into the laptop without the battery and press the power button.
If the laptop powers on just put the battery back in.
