SOURCE: internal battery needs to be replaced on my Dell Dimension 4600.

Unplug the computer. Remove the side cover. This is probably held on by two or three philips head screws on the back left edge of the unit. On the motherboard, look for a flat, round, shiny piece that resembles a nickel. This is the battery. There should be a small metal tab that holds it in place. Push on the tab and the battery should pop out. Note the orientation of the battery and replace with a new one in the same position.

SOURCE: Hi there, I have a toshiba

A couple things to try, 1 is boot the system in the safe mode (F8 menu at boot) and see if the LCD turns off there. You can also attach an external monitor and see if the external looses video too.
If the system looses video in the Safe mode and doesn't loose video with an external monitor, then the LCD backlight is likely failing

Hi

To bypass the BIOS password for your laptop press and hold Left Shift key and check if password is bypassed. If it is not then you would need to reset it. To reset the BIOS password you would need to remove the RTC battery on the motherboard and try and restart the laptop 2-3 times. With the laptop turned offf follow these steps--

  • Open Memory Cover
  • Remove Memory
  • Remove Black plastic insulation
  • Locate & Short CMOS CLR1 for 15 Seconds

  • Hope this helps... If it does please do not forget to accept the solution or post back for assistance.

    You are looking at about $200 for keyboard and LCD, and you could buy them from here http://www.sparepartswarehouse.com/Toshiba,Satellite,A205,PSAE3U-07Y023,Laptop,LCDs-Displays.aspx
    As for installing them yourself, it's pretty easy if you're handy with a screwdriver. Have a look here for a video guide:

    Does not work?
    Then you have a problem with the Backlight, in the LCD screen.

    A primer before I go on........

    An LCD screen does not produce light. It needs an additional light source.
    A Backlight is the additional light source.

    A Backlight can be a CCFL, (Or more than one), or a series of LED's.
    (Light Emitting Diode)

    A CCFL is a Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp. (Bulb)
    Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses; but on a MUCH smaller scale.
    Average thickness is 2mm. That is a little larger than 1/16th of an Inch.
    Average length is almost as long, as the LCD screen is in height.

    CCFL backlighting uses a Screen Inverter.
    LED backlighting GENERALLY does not use a screen Inverter.
    (First models with LED backlighting seemed to use a screen Inverter. Newer models do not)

    Your HP 450 Notebook PC uses LED backlighting.
    Here we can see an LCD screen replacement example,

    https://www.laptopscreen.com/English/model/HP-Compaq/HP~3115m~E-450/

    NOTE -> Backlight type: LED
    It does NOT use a screen Inverter.
    How do I know? I'm looking at the Service Manual right now.
    (I use two monitor screens)

    You can also look at the Service Manual. It's Free, and available in the Manuals download page where you started.

    On the Manuals download page, scroll down to the subheading >
    Service and maintenance information.
    Click on the blue >
    HP 450 Notebook PC and HP 455 Notebook PC - Maintenance and Service Guide (26 Apr 2013)

    Page 31 - Display assembly subcomponents

    The LED backlighting is built into the LCD screen.
    To replace the backlight, you replace the LCD screen.

    Laptop screen is totally blank as a duster with magnet was used to wipe the screen by erros


    It is highly unlikely that using the magnetic duster could damage a LCD screen except putting scratches on the surface of the screen. There is nothing in a LCD screen that can be affected by a magnet. A magnet will affect a CRT monitor because a magnetic field will affect/deflect the electronic beams that hit the color phoaphorus dots on the screen.

    You could have a defective screen - a defective inverter or a CCFL lamp.
    To determine if you have a LCD screen or video card problem, read this and follow the instructions.

    Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:
    • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
    • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
    • Picture flickering with dim display or appear black.
    • Picture flickering on and off.
    All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp

    Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.

    Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
    The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

    When I turn on the Toshiba Satellite A215-S7447 laptop, the monitor part of it doesn't turn on with the rest of the system.


    Plug in an external monitor. use the <FN><F5> keys to toggle between the internal lcd and the external monitor. If the display external works and the lcd doesn't, most likely a bad inverter board.

    My toshiba m105 it wasn't the inverter, it was the lcd itself, the TAB welds were no good but the lcd still worked it just had a 3" vertical blacked out area on the lcd.

    Toshiba Satellite P25-S5092/ Computer will come on, but screen will not work. Wondering if it is most likely the LCD screen itself, the backlight or something else.


    Hi,

    If you have deduced that indeed the Toshiba Satellite P25-S5092 will boot and therefore operational except no display on the screen, you can always verify by connecting an external monitor. You of course would need to press Fn + F? (the F key with the small monitor icon).

    As to the LCD screen having no display, often this could either be the CCF lamps (cold cathode florescent) and/or the inverter that powers it. One way to verify this is by shining a flashlight obliquely to the screen and a portion of your desktop would show albeit very very dark. Often, it is the inverter that fails. In some instances it could even just be a cold solder, loose connection or capacitors that have dried up, leaky or blistering.

    Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

    Good luck and kind regards.

    Thank you for using FixYa.

    Low brightness to no brightness on the m55-s139 toshiba notebook ;what are the possibility fix?


    The backlight has probably gone out in your screen. Replacing a LCD screen is fairly easy and can be done alot cheaper yourself rather than paying 3-400 bucks to hire someone to do it.

    This ebay page contains the screen you need and instructions on removal and installation for your screen. It also contains the necessary information to make sure you are purchasing the correct screen.
