Maximum resolution on this monitor is 1366x768. Check your color depth( 16 bit, 24 bit, etc) and do not set the resolution greater or you will get unpredictable results.

Toshiba satellite monitor is scrambled, how to fix?


Check to see if the problem is the screen Inverter, or the graphics chipset, or the LCD screen.
Use an external monitor as a test.

If the screen of the external monitor shows a scrambled display you have a problem with the graphics chipset.

If the screen of the external monitor does Not show a scrambled display, you have a problem with the screen Inverter, or the LCD screen.

90 PERCENT of the time the fault is the screen Inverter.


External Monitor;
1) You can use a CRT monitor, (Looks like a small TV), as a VGA monitor,
Or
2) You can use a flat LCD screen monitor that has a VGA cable.

A) Laptop OFF, and monitor OFF, attach the VGA cable from the External monitor, to the VGA port on the Toshiba Satellite A205 series Notebook PC.

This is an example of a VGA cable, and it's connector, and a VGA connector on the laptop,

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

B) Turn the monitor on. If it is a CRT style let it 'warm up'.
Turn the laptop on.

C) The display is supposed to automatically show up on the external monitor.
If it does not, press, and hold down on the Fn key, and also press the F5 key.

Still no?
Holding the Fn key down, tap the F5 key again.

Display good on external monitor? Problem lies with the screen Inverter, or the LCD screen.
Either OR.

Primer:
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.
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

An Inverter (screen Inverter) is used to convert the electricity provided by the laptop, for the LCD screen, and Backlight.

As previously stated, 90 PERCENT of the time the fault is the Inverter.

Laptop open looking at the display assembly, the plastic thin frame in front of the LCD screen, and surrounds the LCD screen, is the Display Bezel. (Resembles a picture frame)

The Display Bezel is removed to access the screen Inverter.
The Inverter is right behind the Display Bezel, and located at the bottom area of the LCD screen.

The Display Assembly has to be removed from the laptop, to remove the Display Bezel.
Toshiba's term for the Display Bezel is Display Mask.

The Toshiba Satellite A205-S5804 Notebook PC is one of the Satellite A205 series of Notebook PC's.
This is a link to a free Service Manual for a the Satellite A205 series of Notebook PC's,

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-toshiba

Scroll down to the second Satellite heading. The one that begins with Satellite A10.
Scroll across, and click on A200.

After you click on A200 it may take as long as 30 seconds before the first page comes up.
It may also take additional time for the file to fully download.

At the top of the PDF file is the page number box. It is to the right of the Down Arrow.
Go to Page 146.
4.10 Display Assembly

Page 151 shows how to remove the Display Mask.
4.11 Display Mask

Page 153 deals with the screen Inverter.
4.12 FL Inverter Board

Takes a really sensitive (Read fairly expensive) multimeter to test an Inverter.
Due to the low price, and ease of replacing, the screen Inverter is replaced to test whether the old one is bad.

Example of a screen Inverter (FL Inverter Board) for a Satellite A205-S5804 Notebook PC,

http://www.batterysupport.com/toshiba-satellite-a205-s5804-inverter-p-216526.html

Compare to the price of a replacement LCD screen,

http://www.laptopscreen.com/English/model/Toshiba/SATELLITE~A205-S5804/

To summarize so far;
1) Display shows good on external monitor. Replace screen Inverter. Still the same problem? Replace the LCD screen.

2) Display on external monitor is scrambled also?
Fault lies with the graphics chipset.

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

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

The graphics chipset is a GPU.
Graphics Processing Unit,

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

The GPU for a Toshiba Satellite A205-S5804 Notebook PC (Part Number PSAF3U-0NR00V), is an Intel (Mobile) GL960 Express,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Core_2_mobile_chipsets

It is soldered directly to the motherboard, therefore it is Integrated Graphics.

{Integrated Graphics is also known as OnBoard graphics.
ON the motherBOARD.
The GPU is soldered to the motherboard.

In comparison if the GPU were soldered to a removable adapter card, it would be a graphics card, and Not integrated graphics }

This means if the graphics chipset is found to be bad, motherboard replacement is the solution.

I am using VA1903wm LCD monitor from Viewsonic. It worked well at its non standard resolution of 1440*900 when used with Windows Vista. i had to upgrade to Windows 7 Enterprise edition and this resolution...


Update your graphics card drivers to the newest ones available. That is typically caused by having the default windows driver for your graphics card. If it is a Nvidia gpu get the drivers from them, itf its an ATI/AMD get them from AMD Game. If it is neither of those Intel does some graphic cards, if its not an Intel one go to the computer manufacturers website and find your model to get drivers for it.

How to clean dirt and smog inside the plastic film


One thing you do not want to do is use any liquids period. I would go to a Radio Shack and purchase some anti-static wipes or purchase a can of Endust Anti Static Spray and spray it on a soft cloth and not on the screen, make sure that your monitor is completely unplugged for about 20 minutes before starting the cleaning process. Thanks for using FixYa! John

My screen keeps blanking out but will come back on if i shut down my computer alot and restart viewsonic vx2035wm


Hi,

There could be a problem on your Graphics card, if it keeps on turning off the display. (either, graphics card driver, or hardware problem).

Try removing the cable (either VGA or DVi) attached at the computer and see if there is a self test feature that will be displayed. If none, then the problem is on your viewsonic.

Hope this helps.

Viewsonic VX2265wm 12o Hz monitor


That's a lot of information and possible problems areas. You need the driver for the Viewsonic screen first of all.. Why do you need to drive the screen at that frequency? you won't notice anything above 85Hz anyway.. I am assuming you have the correct drivers for you video card adn that it is correctly configured for the resolution and frequncy. That video card can drive high resolutions adn high freq's. But if you're only getting those two options then it appears to be a driver option. Get/load the Viewsonic screen driver first.

Lenovo system - Viewsonic display CONFLICTt


yup. possibly a SW conflict. what you can do is to uninstall your video card driver and see if it runs properly under vga.sys driver (microsoft default) if it doesn't run, then you have a hardware problem.

you can come back to me anytime if you need more answers.

Viewsonic va721 monitor


Connect the monitor to a different computer system (if available) to see if the issue is with the video card or the monitor.
Make sure A/C power cord is securely connected to the LCD display.
Make sure the video cable supplied with the LCD display is tightly secured to the video
output port on the back of the computer. If the other end of the video cable is not attached
permanently to the LCD display, tightly secure it to the LCD display.

Your backlight may be going bad, or the small controller board may be going bad also.
