Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite M45-S165 Notebook ?

Display doesn't work

\015 It was working fine until yesterday, when the LCD screen stopped working - i mean it is turning on and the Cd tray is working too but the display isn't working anymore:( Any solution!\015

Answers :

Try using the function key for your display options

You should\015\012see a key related to your function key, generally a different color\015\012then the rest, labeled (F, Fun, FN, etc...) then look for a CRT/LCD, or\015\012LCD, or a symbol of a rounded square, or something resembling a monitor or screen.

Hold Fn and press that button, give it a few seconds. It should switch.

You\015\012can also hold a flash light up to the screen and see if there's any\015\012image, if this is the case then parts need to be replaced.
