Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

The screen on my Toshiba Tecra laptop has been flickering the past couple of weeks. Today, after using for about 5 minutes, the screen went completely black. I had to reboot to get the screen lit again. It happened a second time but instead of going completely black, it went a darker gray...could hardly make out any of the screen. I again rebooted to get the screen back to normal. What's going on?

Sounds like an inverter problem. If your laptop is still under warranty, send it in for repair. If not, and you know a little something about taking laptops apart, then you can take the screen a part and see the inverter behind the screen. It is long and skinny and has wires coming out of both ends, one side going to bulb, the other to the motherboard. Inverters are fairly cheap, and easy to replace... it's getting to it that is a pain.

Back up a little bit and tell us if the screen shows anything at all. If it does not coupled with the lights that are flashing, you have a loose cpu or the cpu is bad.

To reset the BIOS read the information from this link.

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

Hi there,

This can only be a bad soldered on the video module, its better to check for any bad soldered and for any fault on the resistor on the video output module.

Hope this initial info / idea helps.

Please Accept my solution if I solved the issue.

The inverter board on your laptop is failing. It is a board that changes DC to AC voltage, and powers the backlight. It needs to be replaced.
