Evesham 8640 Laptop Screen Failure

Hello,
On initial start up screen appears fine but then looks like has shut down.
You can still see icons, folders, etc but very dark.
Have plugged in external monitor and works fine.
Backlight failure rather than whole screen??
Can anyone help?

Cheers,

    I have the same problem. If the room is not too bright you can still just make out what is on the screen! The problem seems to be occurring most often in battery mode, but it does happen on AC power as well. Putting the PC on standby and resuming usually solves it, if only temporarily (very temporarily, in some cases). I have not found driver updates, or any settings that would explain this...

Most likely the backlight has failed however replacing the backlight is impractical and the screen should be replaced.

My webcam night mode is turn off how can i turn it back on


Face Recognition Usually you'll find the webcam at the top and middle of the laptop screen. One unique feature included with the webcam on newer Toshiba laptops including the Satellite Pro, Portege and Qosmio models is facial recognition. Instead of having to type in a password when you open the laptop, you can set up the computer to recognize your face and automatically load your settings. b> Setup b> To access the face recognition feature on a Toshiba laptop, open the laptop to the registration screen and click the Face Recognition icon. Look at the circle that appears on the screen and align your face so that it fits within the circle, and then click "Next." At the next page, enter your name and password and click "OK." The next time you use the computer, click on your Face Recognition icon from the main screen and look at the webcam so it can recognize your face and load your settings. b> Night Mode b> If you're in a low-light situation you can take advantage of the webcam's Night Mode effect. To turn it on, open the Camera Assistant by clicking the Start button, and then select "All Programs."

Select the "Camera Assistant" folder and then select the "Camera Assistant" software. Once it's open, hover your mouse over the far left hand side of your laptop screen. This will cause a number of webcam icons to appear. Click the "Properties" icon, which looks like a box with a pen over the top left of the box. Click the "Night Mode" check box from the Properties window and then click "OK." b> Other Profiles b> You can also alter other effects and features of the webcam from the Camera Assistant. First open the Camera Assistant by clicking the Start button, and then select "All Programs." Select the "Camera Assistant" folder and then select the "Camera Assistant" software. Then hover your cursor on the far left of the screen until you see the webcam menu appear, and select the "Properties" icon. Then click on an individual "Profile" tab to adjust the white balance, lower or raise the brightness, or correct the colors. As you click on the adjustment, you should see the change reflected in the way the webcam is displaying on your laptop. When you've selected the settings you want, click "OK" from the Profile window.

Dell Inspiron 1545. When booting to vista the screen goes black. When booting to safe mode the screen works normally.


Please reinstall the Video Driver and check if the same issue persists. If the issue started within last 90 days, you can try the System Restore

Startup fails to complete properly


When on the screen, and you have no icons hold control(ctrl) down and shift key and press escape(esc) your windows task manager should appear, goto the applications tab, at the bottom goto the tab New Task and left click, another window should appear with a text bar, type in the text bar explorer.exe and click ok, all the icons and your normal screen should reapear.

If your screen goes back to normal goto the start bar and goto run or search and type "regedit".
When the regedit window appears left click the " + " sign next to Hkey_local_mechine the the plus sign on software, scroll down to Microsoft folder and click the plus sign, scroll down to Windows nt folder and click the plus sign, the plus sign on Current version folder, then scroll down to winlogon folder and left click on the folder icon, on the right hand side of the screen look for "shell" double click on the icon and delete everything in the text bar and type explorer.exe and click ok and exit out of the window, restart the pc and everything should be back to normal.

pls post back and tell me what happens.cheers.

The laptop loads up, lets me sign in, then goes blank, no icons


Try booting to the safe mode (F8 at boot) and see if you can log in via the safe mode. If you can't, try booting to your Windows CD, go to recovery console and run CHKDSK /R
If you still can't log in, try running diags see if the hard drive lists a failure.
if no hardware failure found, there and none of those solutions work, then re-installing windows will likely be the final resolution

My laptop screen is flickering


That could be ths connector that connect the LCD to the Motherboard in the laptop. Ive seen something similiar wherein i took down the screen, cleaned up the connectors and it worked like new...... for a few weeks then it went back and started he flickering again. We finally fixed the problem by replacing the screen. Apparently the connector behind the screen was giving trouble. Have someone check the cable from your LCD to the board but I think you might need to fix the connector or replace the LCD screen. Regards, babb
