Hi!

if that's the cae, try reseating the LCD cable. You can do it by following the manual. Here's the link:

Try to do that and if that won't work, then probably the backlight might be busted and you have to replace the whole LCD.

Hope this helps! don't forget to rate the solution. ;)

Thanks,

Karlox™

My screen is very dim


boot to the BIOS (F2 at boot) and ensure that the LCD brightness is set to 8 and then reboot, if LCD is still dim, then, check the Control point system manager display settings and see if the LCD is dimmed there.
If no change, run diags Power + D at boot to run the LCD BIST test , if the 4 colored screens are DIM during the test, then the LCD has failed and needs repplacement.

I have a Compaq Presario 700 series. About a month ago the LCD went crazy for no apparent reason and I took it in for service. They told me the LCD was bad and had to be replaced. They said it would cost...


  1. First, since this LCD your using is a TV ready you need to check if it's in the PIP mode (picture in picture). Because if its in this mode the TV screen will be divided into parts.
  2. Secondly, checked the remote then try to press the PIP mode so that your screen will back to a normal mode.
  3. If pressing the PIP button will not bring it m\back to a normal mode try to remove the connection of the TV to your LCD TV and then make sure that the LCD and the laptop is off then try to connect it again then power on both LCD tv and the laptop.
If you have further questions fell free to reply to this solution. Cheers!

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart then
once you have your computer running try uninstalling a few unnecessary programs then click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to fix any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive this should schedule when you restart then defragment your hard drive
hope this helps

Toshiba Satellite P105-S6124 Screen lines


Are these lines on the screen during the whole boot process? If so then the screen cpu and/or the video cpu has gone bad. Connect an external monitor. If the picture is clear, no lines, then the problem is the LCD screen. If the lines appear on the external monitor during the boot process then the mother board will need replacement.

Good Luck

No display


I believe you are referring to a desktop PC.

You can press F8 repeatedly while booting to get the Boot options screen. It should contain a VGA Mode - this will boot your regular desktop with a lower resolution. Once in windows adjust the screen resolution to one that your Monitor supports.

Right click the desktop anywhere. Choose properties. Go to the right most tab "settings". Slide the screen resolution option until its where you want it. Click Apply. Do Not Hit any keys on the keyboard. Wait until it finishes changing resolution than click Ok. Close the Window.

If your screen goes black during this waiting 30 seconds should automatically revert it to the previous settings.

Plug an external monitor into the notebook. See if the diplay is clear. If there is no problem with the display there the problem is with your lcd. You can check for a loose connection by disassembling the notebook. If the connections are ok you have probably done damage to the lcd from the impact of the fall. Now if you are not familiar with working with notebooks internally I would not reommend opening it. Check your warranty with the manufacturer to see if you are covered otherwise take it in for service if you can.

Hope this helps you
