Having problems with your Toshiba PC Laptops ?

My laptop is only 4 months old and my screen is very dark. I can hardly read the screen.


Answers :

The connector that goes from the mother board or the invertor may be bad.\015\012Or the inverter board itself.\015\012
\015\012The wire is very delicate and goes from the motherboard and the invertor wire is also delicate. Repeated opens and closing of the screen can make the conections at the plug get weak and break.\015\012
\015\012Try connecting a LCD monitor alongside the laptop. Select the LCD and see if you get a video feed. If so then the wire connector and / or inverter is probably the sourse of your problems.
