Hi, this does sound initially like a screen fault (hardware fault). Either way, you will need to get someone to reapir either the screen, the inverter or the graphics chip/card on the mainboard.

1) If you can plug in an external monitor into the laptop, and this works, then you know that the graphics chip/card on the mainboard is working ok, so it will be either 2) or 3) below.

2) If you can shine a torch on the screen and see faint ghostly images of what should be displayed then it is probably the inverter and you will probably need the inverter replacing or the back light for the LCD screen (more often than not it is the inverter).

3) If it works on an external screen, and you cannot see the ghostly images on the laptop screen, you will probably need a new LCD screen replacement.

Whats the difference between a toshiba L675D-S7100 and a S7107? which is a better laptop is the link for the s7107 and for the s7100

the s7107 is better out of the two because of the better processor and it has a blu ray drive BUT if you dont need the blu ray drive save the 120 dollar difference and get the s7100 as for the price difference you wont notice much if any difference in speed with the processor also on the right of the page look at the ones near the bottom that have the intel i3m processor for around the same price its much better

Do toshiba satellites c655 have a built in mic?

The Toshiba Satellite C655 does not have a built in microphone, but it does have a mono microphone jack.
The following website has microphones that are compatible with the microphone jack.
You may verify at Toshiba's C655 website. It says "No Webcam and microphone built into LCD bezel".
Compared with the L670. It says "Webcam and microphone built into LCD bezel".
I hope this answers your question.
Sincerely, Nathan Hicks

How do I replace the keyboard?

next to the F1 key and the windows key (2nd upper key and second to last key) are two screws, usually under some covering. unscrew and lift top edge of the keyboard towards the trackpad to lay face down. Undo the wire ribbon by lifting the grey or brown tabs and remove ribbon and keyboard. Then install the new keyboard by inserting the ribbon on the place. Lock down with the tabs and put the plastic prongs (close to the space bar) into the laptop body first, and then close keyboard onto the final position. screw back in and thats all. for any additional questions.
