Question about Computers & Internet

Info you asked for

Thanks, but I don't see the pin it explains in the section you emailed. It is a Toshibae Satellite 100CS and the model # is PA1217U V. The it says part # PA1217U-S2W. Serial #04664140-1. It looks old as can be. Going to try the flashlight thing and also the separate monitor. If you can think of anything else I would appreciate it.
Thanks, Sid

Hi Sid, I can find information about the notebook but am unable to find any type of support from Toshiba. This includes drivers & possible bios files.
The lin above & below only show specifications.

Since you can not see anything on you're display, the back light may be defective & may need replaced. The goal here at FixYa is to help you find a fix. With that in mind can I suggest you click on this next link that will take you to a friend, here at FixYa. He has more experiance with notebook repairs than I.
Click the ask me button under his name & re-post you're question/problem. Benimer is pretty good with faulty display screens.

How to get your question answered as quickly as possible

First, when you ask the question post in the correct place I.E. if you want to know the correct firing order for a 350 Chevy v-8 engine, don't post to computer software error code section. Drill down to autos engine Chevy etc.

Second, DO NOT write in all capitals on the internet that is yelling and it offends people

Third, give enough info to research the problem if necessary.
i.e. computer won't work is not a good way to ask the question
Try my HP model 6005 boots into screen asking me to make recovery disks or I get "BOOTMGR is missing Press Ctrl Alt Del to restart" when I turn on the computer.
At minimum give the error and the select the correct make and model of the item so the person trying to answer your question has a place to start if they haven't ran into the specific problem before.

Fourth, do not post in multiple groups and multiple times i.e.
Your TV will not power on
Don't post to computer networking section, the auto section, and twice to Apple Mac Laptop section
You will not get the answer you want any faster, it annoys the people answering and you are labile to get your question ignored.

Google (or whatever search engine you prefer) is your friend. If you search first you might be able to fix it by yourself and then if you don't understand something, explain that you tried this link or that link and you don't understand it will make it easier
PS. These things work on any forum you may have to ask a question on

Good Luck
