Spilling water or any liquid fries components, so this is going to be hardware replacement instead of an easy software fix. Let's perform an easy test to see if the machine is working properly, and narrow down the source of the problem. Connect an external monitor to the laptop, If everything works properly on the external, then the screen is fried and will need replaced. If you still have a black screen with the external, then the video card is fried and will need replaced. On some models the video card is integrated into the motherboard, and the motherboard will have to be replaced in order to fix it. Try this and let me know.

Man your toast. Google JB Technologies, they specialize in laptop repair. Good thing you admit the water thing b/c alot of latops have a special chem on the motherboard that changes color if exposed to water or liquid.

I connected RGB from toshiba m45-s169 to tv. Had a signal but now cant get it back. Tried updating video driver. Help?


You can switch to an external monitor, TV or data projector by two methods. 1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor. 2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key a few times. Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :- IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7 HP and Compaq = Fn + F4 Toshiba = Fn + F5 Dell = Fn + F8

To test, u can plug external monitor in the VGA-port, turn ON the laptop, after a minute, toggle the display once, or twice, or 3 times to change the display path to the external monitor.
Tell us your results
Good Luck

The monitor on my Toshiba P25-S5093 does not have any display of any kind; all black. I have display using external monitor.


Hi,
Does the display show anything before you enter windows? If yes, then press the key to transfer video back to your original screen once you enter windows. It should be the function key "Fn" + F5 - F8. looks for the icon which shows a monitor or says "CRT/LCD".
If it doesn't show anything before you enter windows I'm afraid your screen needs to be replaced. Good luck.

Can't get my laptop to display on a monitor.


Most laptops require you to press the Fn (Function) key and another key on the keyboard to activate the external video port, not too sure which button on your model it is, but it should look like a monitor.

Other than that it could be your board is fried. Which will need replacement/ repair.
