I will assume that the black dot is on the screen. If the black dot is on the LCD screen of your laptop, then it is most likely a "Nonconforming" or "dead" pixel and you will have to have the LCD screen replaced at a repair center to fix it. Nonconforming pixels occur on all LCD screens but if it is really bothering you, you can look for a repair center on Toshiba Support at:

If it is just one pixel that is black, you cannot do anything about it. It is what we call a "dead pixel". The best thing to do is to send it back in to the manufacturer and get a free replacement.

It's not the answer you wanted to hear, but again, there is nothing you can do about it.

2 tiny black spots on screen, one looks like a check mark and one is a dot. Toshiba laptop satellite series. Dead pixels? How can they be fixed. Ran a program that is multi colored flashing lights to no...


Unfortunatly you do have dead pixels, but you cant fix them. Lots of lcd displays have them, some are more noticable than others, it dosent mean your lcd monitor is going to fail soon or anything like that, even brand new lcd monitors have dead pixels it is a comman anoying problem with them.

Transfering Macros, changing normal.dot files


Try to save the normal.dot file in my documents and then open with word, then close word and it should tell you that normal.dot has changed and ask if you would like to save it. Select yes.

sounds like it's missing a power source. Re-check to ensure both a power source and cable are firmly in place.

In my Toshiba laptop there is a problem with backlight. Could you fix it ?


Yes it can be fixed with a new backlight if that's the problem. Start the computer and see if with a flash light you can see the windows xp starting up image or the desktop when it finishes starting. If so you need a backlight which looks like a small florescent light bulb. If not you could need a new LCD or video card or motherboard. You can test the LCD by hooking the pc up to an external monitor. If you can see the pc info then your video card is ok and your motherboard is ok. You need a new LCD.
Let me know if you need anymore help.

I just want to know how difficult, time comsuming and roughly how expensive it is to add memory to my Toshiba Notebook.


Normally adding memory takes one screw driver to remove one screw, pop in the new memory, and your done. Can be done in 2 minutes.

Since I don't know what model of Toshiba you have, it is hard to ascertain which memory modules you need but memory is relatively cheap nowadays.
