I have a display problem with my thoshiba satellite 5105-S607. May be it is a graphic video card problem. When I turn the laptop on, after 4 miniutes it is flaking in the way that I can't see anything. What can I do to solve this problem. Can it be replaced? Even if I'm connected on an other monitor It give the same problem
You really should not offer advise when you don't know the facts. This unit does have a seperate video card. It is known to fail. They almost don't exist for replacement. You might find a refurbished or used one maybe.

Sorry but I am confused. You connected to the graphics card when it was in your machine and it did not function? Or was your monitor connected to motherboard display port? Have to ask.If a PCIEcard is in the PCIE port then onboard video is cut off.The signal only comes from the card. The card should work fine on that motherboard as long as the the card and slot are compatible, are they both PCIE 2,or 2.1 or 3.0
assuming you have the latest driver available installed with this graphics card, and without knowing which version of windows you have..
go to your Nvidia Control Panel (Rt click on the desktop)
go to the 'Set PhysX Configuration'
in the Select a PhysX processor drop down box.
change it from Auto select to the Graphics card.
should work. if not. roll back your Graphics driver to a previous version
obvious things first. have you tried the other input plugs on the TV? do you get the same problem with plugs 1 and 2?
you can try only having the TV connected to the Graphics card and turning on the PC see if it comes up as the primary display automatically.
have you tried configuring the Nvidia setting so ONLY the tv is a display instead of dual monitor?
doing these will rule out faulty cable or faulty S-video plug or Faulty TV input plug.
just disconnect tv connection and plugin the monitor connector the display should come automatically. then go to nvidia control panel and connect tv and then configure the dual display. then both will again work again.
Hi, sounds like your display/video card drivers are not installed... If you have an ATI video card you can just google ati display drivers... If you are using a NVIDIA video card then google Nvidia display drivers... make sure when you visit these websites you download the drivers for you country.... UK & US there is a difference...
SINCE THIS WAS AN INTERMITTENT PROBLEM ARE YOU GOING TO BE THE ONE DOING THE REPAIR,IF SO I WOULD CHECK EVERY CONNECTION IN IT.I HAD A SIMILAR PROBLEM AND IT TURNED OUT TO BE THE CONNECTIONS THAT WENT TO THE MONITOR.IT SEEMS TO BE A GRAPHIC CARD PROBLEM BUT I WOULD NOT CHANGE THE GRAPHICS CARD UNTIL I CHECKED ALL CONNECTIONS.AND SINCE YOU HOOKED IT TO ANOTHER MONITOR I WOULD SAY IT IS THE GRAPHICS CARD.I HAVE FOUND LOT OF PARTS AND STUFF ON EBAY.THEY ARE USUALLY THE LOWEST PRICES I CAN FIND. GOOD DAY KZ
