Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite M35X-S149 Notebook ?

White screen I have a toshiba m35x, with a white screen. I took it to e computer tech who said I nee a replacement screen, they couldnt do it , they only deal with DELL. I've looked up online computer sites for some info and have checked everything, including the taking the laptop apart to check the connections, they seem fine. When I hook up an external I get a picture. So do I need to replace the screen and is it worth it to replace or buy a new one? This one was given to me as is...


Answers :

The screen is definitely bad, i've had the same problem. Go on Ebay and see if you can find a cheap working lcd screen for your laptop, if not then I would say replace the laptop cause it can get kind of pricey. Lcd's can run at least $150.00 and up and thats without the labor of installing it as long as you know how to take the old one out and put the new one in.


Hi there.
What you have to do is take the screen surround off and unscrew the screen itself, carefully lift the screen out so you can see the long ribbon cable at the back of it, carefully remove the tape that goes across the cable and gently pull the cable out, if you have any contact spray a little of that won't hurt, if not just reseat the cable making sure its in nice and tight and lay the screen in the lid and rescrew it back.
Next, look under the screen for the inverter, you will recognize it because there will be wires coming out of each end and will be behind a plastic cover, unplug the plugs and then plug them back in again.
Reassemble the lid or the laptop if you have done that and boot the machine.
Please let me know how you get on

Replaced the broken screen in my Acer Aspire One D150 (10 inch). It seems to work fine, except when the computer is powered off. The screen remains ON and completely white when the computer is turned off. I have double checked the connection behind the LCD. Is my new screen a dud? Seems strange that it would work fine when the computer is on, but show a white screen when the computer is off. Any ideas?
