Having problems with your Toshiba Tecra A5 Notebook ?

Screen blank off after xp logo on startup

\015 I have a Toshiba Tecra A5 notebook. The notebook failed to boot up as I saw "blank" on the monitor. On starting several times I discovered that the system actually is fine except does not display. Sometimes I can reach as far as entering password. The monitro just "blank-off". I connect another monitro at teh VGA output but it is the same. I suspected the problem is at VGA card (if there is any). Please advise.\015

Answers :

It sounds like it is possible that your lcd backlight has died. it's not that easy to fix yourself. i would recommend bringing it somewhere to see how much it would cost to get it fixed, it will not cost as much as a new laptop. or you can just continue to use it through it's vga port but now it is no longer a laptop but a desktop.
