Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook
I have a Toshiba Satellite A100, which is approximately 2 years old. The monitor recently started turning black at random intervals, and I have to reboot to get the monitor back. I have used the Toshiba repair disk to bring the laptop back to factory "out of box" settings. The problem persists.
Note: When running the repair disk, the monitor never goes black. The monitor only goes black after Windows boots-up fully, goes past the splash screen, and the desktop display shows. Sometimes it goes black within seconds, other times it's random.
Also, I don't think it is a back light issue, only because the monitor does fade... it just seems to turn off in a flash.
If you're working on the computer when that happens, it's not probably a power setting. Try to update your BIOS to the most current version at the toshiba support website (support.toshiba.com) & see what happens. Fixes the issue most of the time
I hope this helps.
