Toshiba Satellite Laptop Won't Display

\015 My laptop boots up, it has a full battery, the LED lights seem to be working fine, but the screen is completely blank. Sadly, I'm not currently at my own house, so I can't connect my laptop to an external monitor to test it. I have toggled the display (FN+F5 for me) a few times and nothing happens. One of the symbols on the keyboard is lighting up, though. It's a tiny box with four arrows pointing in opposite directions... Does that mean anything?\015\012\015\012My laptop had issues displaying about six months ago, so I sent it in to be repaired and when it came back, it appeared to have issues with the cooling fan. As of late, it's been prone to overheating if I don't keep it in a really well ventilated area. I would normally assume that the motherboard was fried, which is a well-known problem with this model, but I was using my laptop a few hours ago and shut it down normally when I was finished... so it's not like it has overheated recently. There's no reason why the motherboard would be fried. Soo.. does anyone know what's wrong?\302\240\015\012\015\012If not, does anyone know of any relatively cheap (under $1500 would be ideal, used is fine), good quality laptops that can handle MMORPGs? I think I'm getting sick of this one breaking. I've already sent it in to be repaired 2 times in the last 2-3 years...\015

Answers :

I've bought quite a few PCs in my lifetime and still am, plus being on this end answering Troublshooting questons I know what companies have the most troubleshooting calls. I won't elaborate but I think it qualifies me to get you informed.

\015\012For Windows, Dell is hard to beat. One popular service is they can custom make to your specifications. They also have a 3 year warranty that is not real expensive and all for less that $1500. Since you're a gamer I'm sure your most concerns are making sure you have enough RAM and your Video card. On a custom made Dell you can choose your components versus factory settings then spending another $1000 getting it the way you like it. www.dell.com.

\015\012For Linux, System76 is one of the best. They only make Linux computers so the hardware and software match. Dell also has a line of Linux computers with Ubuntu.They are relatively new to Linux. System76 also is less than $1500 and you can check them out at www.system76.com.

\015\012Unfortunately without being able to dual-monitor your screen problem the alternatives are limited. The only thing I can suggest is the toggle key, which you already tried. If by chance you get another monitor then check in Device Manager (start>right-click on My Computer>Properties>Hardware Tab>Device manager. Find your video adapter. Click on the "+' sign to open then right click on your model. Update drivers or uninstall drivers and reboot. Your Plug n Play will pick the correct drivers. If you get visual on the dual monitor then you know its your screen and not the drivers. Replacement screens are not cheap so up to you on that one...on the other hand if you don't get a picture on the dual monitor then you know its the software. You may have to re-install to get the bugs out.
