Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Hi! I recently dissasembled my Toshiba Satellite A70 to clean out the cooling fans and heat dump(don't worry the warranty died years ago). When I re-assembled it and turned it on, the screen is all wonky! Only about 70% of the width of the monitor (from left to right) is being used, with about 5% double capturing a certain portion of the screen image, and 25% being nothing at all. Have I crossed a wire somewhere?


Answers :

Try to connect it in a external monitor if it works. If so maybe your LCD is already damage.
It seems that there is a problem with the flat ribbon cable that connects to the monitor, one of the connectors of this ribbon cable is not plugged in properly, or a portion of the ribbon cable is getting crimped.

\015\012I suggest taking it apart again and checking the cable.
