Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A105-S4004 Notebook ?

Hi my Toshiba M110 laptop model PSMB0A-0IL00D screen flickers some times. It has gone all black few times as well. Is it cheap to fix? will it crash? Cheers Theo


Answers :

Hello,
According to the manual for my Toshiba laptop, the price of the screen is about the third of the price of the laptop. Do the math.
Before looking for a repair shop, investigate first the reason foe the Flicker.
I just remembered: all screens flicker. But if they flicker at 50 Hertz you might notice it. The higher the frequency the less noticeable the flicker is. Check your graphics properties to find out if you screen cannot refresh at a higher rate than the current one (60Hz, 75Hz or higher). But beware! if you force it to flicker at a frequency that it cannot handle, you will damage it.

Hope it helps.
Updating the drivers would be the first step, to make sure your drivers aren't old and or corrupted. Attatching an external monitor can also be done to ensure that it is indeed the LCD backlight inverter, but chances are that the monitor will not flicker which ofcourse would indicate a problem with your backlight. If the external monitor indeed does flicker then it would indicate a problem still with your drivers or the worse possible scenario which would be a faulty GPU.\015\012\015\012Possibility is that You will have to change the inverter.
