Having problems with your Toshiba PC Laptops ?

Toshiba satellite 1800 - 921 monitor black. tried to turn it on no display?


Answers :

Can you try plugging the laptop into an external monitor and enabling the external video? I think on a Toshiba, that's a Function +F5 key together (or holding the function key and pressing the F5 key.) Repeatedly using that combination should cycle through using the built-in LCD panel only, LCD +external or external-only. If none of them work, there is a good chance you have a dead video card in your computer at which point you have two options: 1) replace the whole computer or 2)replace the on-board video (sometimes it's not built-in to the motherboard, but attached to it so it can be easily replaced once you open the case.)

My guess, based on limited experience, is that if the on-board video is bad, there's probably more damage than just the on-board video and you might as well replace the whole thing. There's a possibility you might find the same make/model of laptop on eBay or somewhere like that with a damaged LCD panel that you can use to rebuild yours.

I've got a Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 that I'm trying to connect to my very old TV (16 years). I'm going through the VCR. I thought I could connect the laptop's VGA to the RGB port on the VCR, tune to the right channel, adjust the display on the laptop & poof --- big screen monitor. Well, no such luck. Any help would be appreciated. Oh, it go directly to the TV, I would need to convert the PC's VGA to coaxial. I thought it would be easier going through the VCR's RGB.


No that will NOT work, first the PC's VGA doesn't have any "Channel" Second you must install Drivers for said VGA card, and the card MUST have a TV out connector either SVHS, or Composite, video out, or as of late HDMI. You Cannot "Receive" a VGA, si ... Toshiba Satellite L300-EZ1004V Notebook
