If this is a new module, make sure the specs are the same as the old module. If it is an old module then it is more likely the module has over-heated and died. Try swapping the modules with the different slots and make sure they are seated all the way in the slots. Afetr each time, check the ram in the BIOS settings to see if the BIOS sees the ram installed and not just the Windows system utility. That way we can figure out whether it is hardware or software. If the bios sees the ram and windows does not, then the hardware is fine and it is an operating system problem. If bios does not see the ram then it is hardware....either the stick is bad, the slot has failed or is disables, or it is not properly seated and is not getting good contact. Try cleaning the ram contacts with a Q-tip and alchohol, dry completely, then reseat.

Downloading drivers will do nothing to help it, it is a hardware problem if a. If you do not normally do things inside the computer, I would suggest you don't do this yourself, It is probably a shorted wire, but when you open the case you have a pretty good chance of messing up something even worse. If you do decide to do it, test any wires in that area for a short.

NEED AMANUAL TO SHOW HOW TO SEPARATE TOP FROM

the pane with power button usually comes out. carefully investigate where the "split" is on either side. Then using a small , flat blade pry up and in, actually it is installed by "bowing" downward and inward. so when removing from one side, pry and lift and at the same time pry lightly a few inches over to bow it until the clips release.

good luck , be gentle.

BLINKING ICON

If you want it to be fixed as soon as you can, you can buy a new Operating System Disk for example the Microsoft Windows Xp or buy the same operating system that you are using right now. You can also borrow someones CD that is the same Operating System version that is installed in your computer to reformat your PC right away. When you are using Windows, all you need is the CD Key that is used in your laptop, it is usually written in a sticker under your laptop. When you buy a brand new installer, you will have a new CD key in it. Dont forget to save/back-up all your important files first in an external harddisk, usb flash drive or in a CD first before you start reformatting your computer. Get a help from a computer guy on how to format it. Hope this helps.

Hi my Toshiba M110 laptop model PSMB0A-0IL00D

Hello,
According to the manual for my Toshiba laptop, the price of the screen is about the third of the price of the laptop. Do the math.
Before looking for a repair shop, investigate first the reason foe the Flicker.
I just remembered: all screens flicker. But if they flicker at 50 Hertz you might notice it. The higher the frequency the less noticeable the flicker is. Check your graphics properties to find out if you screen cannot refresh at a higher rate than the current one (60Hz, 75Hz or higher). But beware! if you force it to flicker at a frequency that it cannot handle, you will damage it.

Hope it helps.

Intermittant monitor clarity, resolution

Hi,
This is a common problem with inverter cables working loose at the hinge end but could be a problem with the inverter itself or just loose hinges.
Downloading new drivers won't resolve the problem.
Either way the case has to be split to check certain components so opening it up will void what warranty you have left.
I recommend the you take advantage of the warranty and send it in for Toshiba to repair as when the laptop comes back it will be OEM repaired and should work great for a good while.



Regards.

Screen is dead on A105-S4104 laptop.

This could be a faulty video cable or connector or CCFL lamp or inverter.
Try reseating the video cable/connector that connects to the motherboard first.
If this doesn't work then to determine if you have a LCD screen, inverter or video card problem, read this and follow these instructions.
Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Toshiba Satellite A105 Display

If you've replaced the LCD Panel already, then chances are good, the failing part may be the FLR inverter. It's a thin little chip about 3 or 4 inches in length that bridges the connection between the LCD and the motherboard. It's location varies from computer to computer though, so you may have to check with manufacturer documentation. They're not too terribly expensive to replace though, much cheaper than the LCD panel, anyways.

I would like to reset my Toshiba Satellite A105 to defaults

If you have had the Restore function turned on (is is by dafault) you should be able to restore your system to an earlier date when it was still behaving. Use the Help function in Windows for instructions for your operating system.

  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
  • Picture flickering with dim display or appear black.
  • Picture flickering on and off.

Dull picture on laptop but cursor is still bright

The screen brightness is automatically adjusted by your laptop's Power Management configuration in the Control Panel. Depending on your laptop's brand you might not only have the Windows power management, but also a proprietary power management application within the control panel or in your Start Menu programs usually listed under your computer's brand name. For example a program folder called "Toshiba" under Programs for a Toshiba laptop. Anyway, I would start there. Usually you can set up the screen brightness according to whether or your computer is plugged in or working on battery. Good luck! :)

When I'm on like Youtube

Hello Qutta81,

I need a little more information about this issue in order to help you. What internet browser are you using? (IE6, 7, or 8, Firefox, Safari, Chrome etc.) Also what operating system are you using? (Windows Vista, XP, 2000, or a Mac operating system such as 10.5, 10.4 etc)

Do you have multiple web browsers to test it in to see if it is a specific web browser issue?

Does it only happen on You Tube videos or does it happen on all videos on the web?

I had to replace my Toshiba A105 screen recently

Ok then, take it apart again and make sure all the connections are well seated, check the inverter (circuit board under the screen) the ribbon cable that goes behind the the screen and the block connector that attaches to the motherboard. If all theses connections are well seated and you still get the pink line, the screen is defective and you need to send it back.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Try taking the battery out for 30 secs or so and then replacing it. You'll find a couple of locks on the bottom of the laptop that will release it.

My wireless network is no longer listed

Ok there needs to be a few diagnostics first.

Can you still connect to to router with a wired connection?

If so, can you veiw the settings for the wirless network,, and are they the same as before?

If you cant connect with a wired connection i'd probably say the router needs replacing.

Please let me know if you can connect with a wire and if you can access the wireless settings?
