Having problems with your Toshiba PC Laptops ?

I have a Satellite M30X/M35X laptop. I started to have problems with the visibility on the monitor screen. It is now completely dark screen. It was recommended that I hold it up to the light to see if I could see the desktop icons, etc. I have completed that task and can see with the light, coming from the side, the icons and the arrow. What could be wrong with the laptop? What should I try to resolve this?


Answers :

The LCD screen's BACKLIGHT is dead... You might be better off getting a replacement lcd screen... Unless you can find the actual backlight for it, which normally no one sells it, and if they do, it might be damaged. So I would recommand getting the LCD replaced.
