Question about Toshiba Satellite M35X-S111 Notebook

1 Answer

PC screen display changed colors

I have seen this one before and sent this computer in for repair THREE times for this same problem. Somewhere inside the guts of this machine there is a plug that wiggles loose over time. All the technician does is open the machine up, plug it back tight and then cahrge mw $100.

Anyone know where this plug is and how to access it? I can see the screen but the colors have changed as if some of the pins in the plug are not contacting.

There aren't many connections for the screen. There will be two possibly three behind the screen and one that connects the screen to the board. $100 is steep, it would be $40 tops at my shop and I would discount and show you where it is and how to do it yourself on the second time. This link may help, it's got breakdown diagrams for various models.

If a laptop screen is changing colour to pink, what is the solution?


More than likely you will need a new screen. It could be the screen or it could be the video card inside the computer. Try connecting another screen to the laptop to isolate the problem. Borrow a screen from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the laptop. If the Borrowed monitor displays ok without the changing color to pink then your video card is ok and the problem is your original screen needs to be replaced. If the Borrowed monitor displays the same pink colors then your video card inside the computer is bad.

The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

Hi, I have a DELL Inspiron 8500. After turn on, I get vertical color bars - sometimes. Most of the time nothing. Connecting a TV for external monitor (VGA port) I get the color bars more often then on the...


the problem is with the gpu inside , i suspect that overheating or continual use of the laptop for long periods has meant that the solder oints holding the gpu to the circuitboard have started to short. Chances of repairing the motherboard are slim and a replacement will be needed.

A very thin vertical red line has appeared on my laptop screen, about 2.5 inches fro the right side


The problem is your Laptop screen is probably bad, hook up a computer monitor to your video output on the back of your computer, if the signal is clean suspect the Laptop screen.

My screen is blank & no sound


The laptop probably has a sticker on the inside that changes color when wet(eventually this had to be defective)...this is why they probably sent it back without even turning it on. since you never spilled anything on it you will probably have an hard time to have it replaced, but keep fighting for your right to have it replaced.

Screen crazies


Doesn't sound like a good situation. My knee **** reaction would be to reseat the cable and power to the LCD screen. If that doesn't work, I'd take advantage of the warranty. They might be able to get you up and running in short order.
Hope this helps!

This sounds like a problem in the connection of the screen to the main board inside your laptop. There will be one or more cables that run from your screen, down through the hinge into the base of the laptop. Sometimes, these can come loose through time and give only a partial picture or strange colors. The only way to find out is to open the computer up and make sure these cables are plugged in. If you cannot do this yourself, take it to a computer repair shop. The other possibility is that the screen has suffered some type of trauma and will need replacing.
