Question about Toshiba Satellite M60 Notebook
New screen and new inverter fited but screen is still dark new install of xp
Have you tried an external monitor?
Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If the display shows on the external monitor that proves your video card is ok and your lcd screen is the issue. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.
If is shows on the external monitor, then you would have to question if the new screen and lcd inverter is bad. Just because they are new don't mean they work. Are you sure you purchased the lcd screen and inverter that is for your model?

check the settings in :
start...control panel... toshiba power saver.
see the disply brightness and drag the rule for the wish point for you.
also the same setting can be done when you press Fn+F7
note that FN is a button in the keyboard located between ctrl and alt.
hope it helps .
