Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A135-S2386 Notebook ?

It turns on i can hear the fan kick in but the display dont light up and all activity stops but the lights are still on. when i bought it the pcima connectors were broken. so what else could be the problem?


Answers :

If the display does not turn on, ever so briefly, at boot, the unit is defective. Even if you configured alternate display output, the Toshiba logo should still come up as soon as the computer's powered on, and disappear a few seconds later.

If this display doesn't show signs of life, there's a fault in the video driver or, worse, in the motherboard's graphic controller.

As a curiosity (since the unit will have to be sent to repair in either case), look at the display from an angle when powering it up. Even when "remaining black", active LCD displays will briefly change their state and turn a sort of very dark slate gray until the driver kicks in. If this doesn't happen, the problem could be a simple loose cable and the display just not being powered up, which would be easy to fix for the technician.
