Satellite C670 screen replacement problems

Question: Satellite C670 screen replacement problems


I was wondering if anyone could help me?
The screen on my C670 works but has visible damage and a lot of dead pixels,
I have bought two replacement screens but have been unable to get them to work any more than the backlight coming on.

Both replacements have been returned to where they were purchased and been tested and found to be working fine, I am now at a loss at what to do next...

I don't really understand what could be wrong that both replacements didn't work but my original works fine....surely if there was an issue with the connector my screen wouldn't work either?

My screen is a LP173WD1(TL)(N1) and the replacements were N173FGE - L23 and LP173WD1(TL)(E1) which I was assured were both compatible with my machine.

Thanks in advance

Preferred Solution: Satellite C670 screen replacement problems

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Satellite C670 screen replacement problems


As far as I know there are different Satellite C670 series.
I found some details regarding the PSC3SE, PSC3NE, PSC3LE, PSC3QE sub-models.

It looks that the LCD module 17.3" W HD+ (1600 x 900px) uses a LED backlight as the light source.
So you should be sure that you are using the right one.

I don?t think that the display controller on the motherboard would be faulty because in such case the original display would not work too.

The LCD display and motherboard are connected by inverter cable, inverter board and
LVDS cable. You should make sure the LVDS cable is firmly connected to motherboard.
If the connection is loose, reconnect firmly and restart the C670 notebook.

I have here my Mother in Laws C670-14D and its developed an issue whereby when you power up the screen is blank. it does have backlight and you hear the windows startup sound that you get before you login as windows starts up.

I can see the screen if I start in safe mode, in fact I'm using the PC in safe mode as I type this.

I did hae a similar problem in the past with another Toshiba laptop and that was windows 8, the issue was connected with power save settings but I've tried all of those and no luck. Also tried the remove battery suggestions, nothing has worked.

I'm guessing windows has done an update that is causing this but I'm at a loss and google has turned up nothing.

Running Windows 10 Home edition 64 bit

Any ideas anyone?

Thanks in advance

Hi all,

I made an upgrade to Windows 10 but after that my satellite notebank C670 has booting problems. It's always after Windows updates were installed. It shows the Win logo followed by a blue screen. After repeated switching on and off I get again to the login screen for the password. Have Windows 10 already reinstalled because I didn't come to the login screen anymore. But problems are still there only with switching on and off attempts it works. But this is not a solution. Have you any ideas - drivers for Win10 or bios? Thanks for help

Around 4 years ago I bought a Sattelite C670-15w laptop and recently the battery started discharging quickly, so I ordered a new one on amazon. The seller sent me 2 batteries, however the laptop only accepts my old battery. When putting the battery inside, the laptop does not turn on and a red light is blinking at the bottom. When taking the battery out, plugging the laptop in and putting the battery back in, the laptop does not recognise it battery and instantly turns off when you unplug it. I tried both batteries and it was the same result. I checked the battery model number and for original and new batteries it was: PA3817U-1BRS PABAS228. I don't know what to do now, is there any way to fix this?

I've been having this laptop for long time and i decided to power it up a bit and buy new pair of RAM memorry. I checked the motherboard model and swa it requires DD3L 800 or 1066 Hz ram memmory up to 8 gb. Therefore i bought 1066 hz 2x4 GB DD3 memmory asumming it is compatible. However i noticed it doesnt work on windows 64 bit while it works on windows 10 32 bit operating system... The 64x os just wont boot and goes into boot loop.

Is it possible that the memory isnt compatible? Can you suggest me some solutions?

Hi all,

I have a C670-19K for a while now ( Greek web site for info about the laptop )

Have upgrade it a bit : 8gb ram and new ssd things are running little bit faster now, bought a cooling pad 17 inch ( 2x160mm fans spin at 1000rpm ) that doesn't do much work on Toshiba armor, have clean and change the thermal paste over time at CPU and GPU, have clean as well the fan + the thermal metal body part , battery have died over time haven't replace that !

I recently made a format ( yesterday ) and today decide to have a further look in my gaming section to see if everything is alright, i have a application to counts the temperature to make sure i`m running good without issues when gaming or multitasking
Before the format i have seen numbers up to 99c with out making the laptop BBQ, but for safety reasons it was turning off which fine for me
After format when it reach 84~85c computer is turning off for safety reasons !!

Am i missing a specific driver that i didn't add ? And which is that ? Can u provide a link for this ?

Did have a look at the web
Bios doesn't have adjustment for temperature
Have formatted the laptop sometime ago and it worked fine afterwards
Have installed the drivers from Toshiba web-site in order to run the laptop

Thanks for your time !!

Hi all,

My Satellite notebook (C670-12x) does not recognize any hard drives (bios startup). I tried with several hard drives. I was wondering if a Bios update would help? Is there a Flash Bios update for CD boot?

I allready tried to convert the Bios driver to an image/bootable CD, but that didn't work.

Thanks in advance,

Answer:Satellite C670-12x does not recognize any HDD

I don?t think BIOS update will help. Try to set BIOS to default settings and check it again. If the same happen again it can be that HDD controller is defective.

Satelilite c670 - 188 WOW shutdown after 20 - 30 minutes game.
my notebook shutdown cpu temperature 86-90 degrees.

I used to play normally. Now your computer is overheating!
the laptop is on the stands with fans!!!

Answer:Satellite C670-188 shut down playing WOW


It seems high temperature causes this unexpected shut down.
Did you use the notebook on the table?
There should be enough free space to keep the air circulating.

Furthermore you should check if the cooling fans are not clogged by dust or debris.
This might affect the air circulation too? I clean my fans from time to time and this keeps the temperature low.

What graphic card driver do you use?
You should use the Toshiba one because such driver is modified for mobile usage? the other drivers don?t support an GPU overheating protection and this might cause such unexpected shutdowns.

Probably yes.
But fact is that nobody would be able to answer this question since such CPU upgrade isn?t officially supported. This means that notebook manufacturers don?t provide any information regarding such upgrade and compatibility.

You can try such upgrade at your own hand and hope that BIOS would be able to handle such new CPU.

They said that for help on which graphic card I should choose compatible with Windows 10, I need to contact my OEM support but as my pc is discountinued I can't ask the support; so I ask you: the community.

Hello Support,

Quite recently I have noticed that the clock / time (displayed in the system tray) of my Satellite C670-12P is going crazy, typically slowing down a bit, but sometimes jumping backwards in time by one hour or even more ! The biggest leap was more than 3 hours backwards... As you can imagine the OS (Windows 7 Home Premium) doesn't like that much and I've had to suffer possibly related hangs.

After some googling it seems that it might be related to an aging CMOS battery (which i've never replaced indeed). After some more youtubing I have learned how to unmount the keyboard under which the CMOS battery would probably be located (as seen on the similar Satellite C series' video). To my greatest surprise, however, unmounting the keyboard of the laptop only revealed a "hole" in the plastic board with some connector, but not the expected CMOS battery -- see attached picture I took and red circle where I was expecting it.

Am I going down the wrong path here ? How can I make sure that it is a weak CMOS battery the root cause of the clock / time going crazy ?
Once that's proven, where is it actually located in the C670-12P and can I easily replace it ? I've seen that sometimes its soldered on the motherboard!

Thanks in advance for your advice and assistance !

So sorry I'm french so excuse me for my english.

I have a tremendous problem.. Last week I installed Windows 10 on my computer (my PC said "clic here to install). I've done it and ta the end A big bleu screen appeared and said "program should stop now in order to don't crash your computer" ...
So now my computer boots and reboots all long day... I see the beginning "Toshiba" and after it is a dark screen. I tried to reinstall Windows 7 but the computer says that my HDD is reserved to toshiba (why?) my second and my third partition too! So no system, no Windows, no data. I tried to launch Windows 10 in a "bootable" USB flash memory, it works, my computer says "clic here to reboot" and when it reboots in the screen i can read " Windows meets a problem of communication with a "p?riph?rique" connexion belong to your computer" thanks Windows !!!! :-(
I made a HDD recovery CD lats year, i tried it. The CD works perfectly and when my computer reboots it looks like nothing happened! My computer boots and reboots ... !!

Important is that you change the language from EN (US) to EN (UK). You can do this if you navigate to control panel > clock, language and regional > regional and language options.

so after finally recieving new screens and everything working fine 1 of the laptops

do the job as supposed i arrived at the next step shorting the jumpers (wich btw
dissapeared from the motherbord) so after disassembling the entire thing for a good
clean. Still couldnt find nothing..., now a bit later and alot of research later i learned
that the only way to get what i want (the laptop in a out of the box state) is to magicly

Hi. I have a C670 which I had problems starting up. I tried the back up discs I had created when i got the machine but they failed to work. I had an extended warranty with the company I had bought the laptop from and I sent it back to them to get the problem sorted. As the back up discs didn't work, all they have done is reinstall windows and I've lost all the bundled software and the HDD recovery system on the D drive which come on the machine.Lesson to learned here I think.

If I was to buy a set of toshiba back up discs would this take the machine back to its 'out of the box' condition.

Hi there!

I helped my neighbour to find a new laptop, and the whole setup and startup.

We ordered a C670-11Q and it works really well, theres just one annoyance.
The disc makes some loud clicking noises, not like a dying or working disc. It's the same sound as when you turn of a disc, just much louder. I guess it's the "disc reading arm" that goes into it's safe position.

I don't know if this laptop has a shock sensor to do this? The laptop was sitting flat on the table, and there where NO vibrations while it's doing it. There are no clicks while under load, but they occur randomly while idling or normal surfing/writing.

I also checked power saving options and disabled them to turn of the disc, no help.
This also seemed weird, because the clicks often occur several times in a row. But it definitely does it more when running on battery.

I'm running the newest BIOS and drivers from the support area (as of yesterday).
The disc is set to performance mode, i didn't test battery saving - should i?

And no, the disc hasen't taken any beating. I was the first person to turn it on.

The drive is from Hitachi, i ran their analysis - no errors.

Any help is greatly appreciated :o)

One of my notebook?s HDD makes such noise too.

I?m not exactly sure why but I think also that this is the disks head which moves into save position.

However, I think that this is not really a malfunction since the notebook runs pretty well and I didn?t notice any problems with the HDD or the files? but I created a backup of my files? just to be safe ? you know?
I think you should backup the date just to be safe?

Answer:Display driver update for Satellite C670

Drivers update for mobile machines is pretty limited and it is big difference between mobile machines and desktops.
Due to specific design and cooling system that machine has GPU must be ?under control?. With new driver GPU can offer more performance but result is more heat that can be dangerous for notebook?s hardware.

This is the reason why notebook manufacturers don't offer such updates and offer just adapted display drivers. If you try to download driver from GPU manufacturer directly there is always a indication to use driver from notebook manufacturer?s support page.

Answer:Satellite C670-11Q - "e give " keyboard issue

> All work as well with an USB keyboard.

For me it sounds like the keyboard would be faulty.
The point is that if the USB keyboard is OK then the issue cannot be related to the software settings.
So it has to be hardware fault.

Get in contact with an Toshiba ASP in your country and ask for a keyboard check and replacement

Maybe it is a noise coming from the HDD.

I have put a I7-2720 into my C670 and everything is working well. I had to use external cooling fans to keep the temp down but Ihad planned for that.

I'm just wondering if I should update my bios from the standard 1.40 that's recommended so that I can fully use all the features of a I7 qm CPU.

Thanks for any help

Answer:Re: Satellite C670 upgraded to I7-2720qm, BIOS update?


As far as I know Toshiba doesn?t support BIOS update and BIOS update has nothing to do with your update. BIOS update is designed to fix some issues or offer some additional options but it has nothing to do with CPU upgrade.

I hope everything will be OK with your notebook in the future. Be careful how do you use it. I presume that you know that after CPU upgrade every hardware failure and repair you must pay on your own.

Today I upgraded to Windows 10. Everything seems to be working ok except my keyboard's strange behaviour.

When the Fn Key is NOT pressed:

(1) The keys 1,2 are not working at all
(2) The keys 3,4 adjust the volume
(3) Space key not working at all
(4) Function Keys behave normally (F1, F2 etc)

When the Fn Key is pressed:

(1) Keys 1,2,3,4 work as nymbers
(2) Space key works as space
(3) Function keys are doing nothing

I tried uninstalling everything related to toshiba as well as pressing Fn for 10 seconds, Fn+Ctrl, Fn-Scroll lock and any other combination I could think of.

In the BIOS there is no option to disable the function keys.
In the HWSETUP there is no option as well

I would really welcome any suggestions. Thanx for your time.

I got the same problem over the previous months when I play Football Manager 2011 on my Toshiba laptop.

The game needs a lot of CPU usage at some time (when I move step ahead, CPU and game create other teams results and create next news and so on) and it breaks after 1-2 hours of playing.

It gets louder and louder and thats all!
PC restarts automathically and I lost my time useless!

It might be overheating processor but I get this problems only while playing this game.
I can forget to play while listening to some music from Youtube or other source or having Skype chat in the background, then it remains only for couple of minutes and it restarts PC again and again.

Whats wrong ? Overheat or anything else ?
Maybe I just need to reinstall whole Windows or game (FM 2011) ?

I use: Toshiba C670-105 / Intel Cor i3 2,53 GHz, 4 GB RAM, Win 7 Home Premium, 64-bit SP1, 300 GB HDD, DirectX10, NVIDIA GeForce 315M

My savegame is currently about 180 MB. And of course my laptop is above of minimal requirements to play this game.

Any hints ?

Answer:Satellite C670-105 unwanted restart while playing some game

> Whats wrong ? Overheat or anything else?
Well, I think nobody would be able to say exactly why the unit shuts off without any further investigation.
Generally the notebook could power OFF due to high temperature and high temperature is mostly the reason for unwanted automatic shuts downs.

Did you ever clean the notebook?s cooling fans in the past?
No?! Probably the dust and debris inside the cooling modules prevent the fans from running with best performance and cause high temperature which leads to the shut down.

I would recommend you to use an compressed air spray in order to get rid of dust. But sometimes such cooling modules need to be cleaned professionally.
But try the compressed air spray firstly.

I have a Toshiba Satellite C670, win7 64bit. I've had it for about a month. Monitor drivers are at the most recent available version.

I've recently noticed a problem with the monitor's gamma settings. On startup, the screen is brighter than it should be. When I go to monitor settings / colour improvements and I change gamma from its default 1.0 to, for instance, 0.9, I see the screen darken (considerably) in 2 distinct but fast steps. Changing the gamma back to 1.0 makes the screen go brighter in one (small) step, and the end result is darker than before I changed anything.

Increasing gamma to 1.1 or 1.2 also gives me a darker result than the "reported" gamma of 1.0 at startup; from my estimation, the gamma at startup is about the same as when I manually set it to 1.3.

However, when I set gamma to, for instance, 0.9, at startup the screen will be back at about 1.3 " real gamma" again. Ofcourse I could shuffle the gamma control back and forth every time I start up my laptop, so that gamma 1.0 is indeed as dark as it should be, but surely I shouldn't have to do this? I use the laptop mainly for photo editing so it's pretty important to my use of the laptop to have correct gamma.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

Kind regards,

Answer:Satellite C670 - monitor: gamma setting too high on startup


From my own experience every display supports different properties.
As far as I know monitor manufacturers store gamma, color information inside the monitors which is being used by the graphics card drivers.

For common usage its ok but for people who do imaging there are different tools which helps you to manage such settings.

I recommend you testing an tool called ?QuickMonitorProfile?
Its free and allows you to create the most commonly used working space profiles. It is also possible to create a monitor profile.

The screen of my Satellite C50-A-1CK was recently broken and I need a replacement, but I don't have any experience with this sort of thing. Actually fitting the screen won't be a problem (I'm lucky enough to have friends who will fit it for free) but I need to buy one first and I'm not sure which one to buy.

I'm looking for something around ?40 or less if possible and I'm in the UK, so a UK seller would be best. I'd prefer to get one from eBay if at all possible, so I'd really appreciate it if I could get a link rather than just "oh search for this and you'll find it".

Thank you very much in advance!

Answer:Screen replacement on Satellite C50-A-1CK

To be honest it is not easy to give you some good advice about all this. Why? Display replacement is pretty complicated and almost whole notebook must be disassembled. For doing this you need maintenance manuals with step-by-step explanation how to do this and avoid some damage. Such document is not a public document so I don't know who want to help you and how.

If someone without experience and knowhow want to do this, can damage your notebook even more. There are many small plastic holders that can be broken or damaged.

I don't know but in my opinion you should contact nearest Toshiba service and ask for help. It costs a bit but it will be done on professional way.

Anyway, I don't live in UK so I don't want to search it for you. You can check UK ebay and search for 15.6 HD 200 CSV LD and if you find some contact seller per phone and check compatibility with your Satellite notebook.

Answer:Satellite Pro L10 - Screen replacement question


In my knowledge the Satellite Pro L10 uses a 15.0" 1024x768 TFT color display.
Therefore every 15? display should be compatible with your notebook!

If you are looking for a second hand display I would recommend checking some online auctions?
You could also search for second hand notebooks which provide also a 15? internal screen.

This would be an easiest way to find one.
By the way, the display is one of the expansive notebook parts and in my eyes it?s not worth to buy a new part.

But it's your choice...

Hi there,

The original screen on my laptop is a glossy screen with the following reference: NTL154X3 (made by Samsung). Two weeks ago I replaced it with a matt screen with the following PL154W01 (made by LG_Philips).

The laptop is working fine since but the screen is just about half as bright as it should be.

Playing with FN+F6 increases the brightness and FN+F7 decreases it. The F6 and F7 works in a reverse order in comparison to what they use to be after replacing the screen. In addition I have to push those buttons twice to change the brightness one step up or one step down.

The first time I push those buttons the brightness wheel come on the screen and the watch moves one step but the brightness doesn't change. When I push them again the watch moves again one step up (or down) and this time the screen brighten up (or down).

The replacement screen is not at fault. I think I have to change the inverter on my laptop because it doesn't provide enough voltage for the matt screen.
I searched the web for days but couldn't find a reference for the inverter to be use with the matt screen.

Can any one help?


Answer:A technical problem regarding screen replacement on a Satellite Pro

To be honest, I don?t know if it?s an inverter issue or if you simply used and replaced the screen with a not compatible one. Who knows?

But fact is that all compatible parts and devices (also the FL inverter) can be ordered from the authorized service provider in your country.
The guys could order the parts directly from Toshiba.

Call the technicians and ask for a compatible inverter for this notebook. Furthermore you could ask if you have used a right LCD.

Good luck

I'm having problems with a Toshiba C50D-A-133.
It's s pretty new looking laptop, and had a cracked screen.
I ordered a new screen with the same part numbers and assumed it would be a straightforward job.

I'm not getting any backlight with any screens I connect. I've tried several, and replaced the display cable with no joy. I've checked the motherboard, and there's no damaged pins etc.

The display is working, I can see the Toshiba logo on boot and it works with an external monitor.

My thinking is that with the old screen getting cracked, it's maybe shorted a resistor or something in the backlight circuit.

Has anyone else experienced this problem and is there any way to remedy it?

Answer:Satellite C50D-A-133 - Screen Replacement - No Backlight

I?m a little bit confused about one statement.
You said the display works and you can see the Toshiba splash screen.

To me this means that everything has been connected properly.

In my opinion you should check the display output function. Usually you can switch between the external and internal display using the function key (in my case FN + F5)

Please check if you could enable the display using the special function key.

I have a Toshiba C670/C6700 that will sometimes boot to a black screen, when this happens the only way to return to windows is to hard power the computer off/on and sometimes the computer will reboot with the screen showing.
The laptop is running Windows 10 Creators edition, however it has also happening on all other previous versions of Windows 10. Windows 7 incidentally it worked fine. The laptop uses a sandybridge generation Pentium CPU, it only has built in 'HD graphics'. It's definitely graphics driver related as if I remove the HD graphics and substitute with Windows 10 generic VGA driver then the problem goes away, the generic VGA driver can't be used however as it's performance is two slow. I've checked on Toshiba's own website and listed for this machine is only Windows 7 drivers.
Can anyone shed any light as to what could be happening, or how to resolve.

I need to replace the LCD screen for my Satellite L500 PSLJ0A-01K013, but I am having difficulty finding a suitable 15.6" LCD screen. I am trying to find it online, but it seems the websites which sell LCDs do not have my model of laptop. Will it be the same for any of the L500 series?

Thank you.

Answer:Replacement LCD screen for Satellite L500 (PSLJ0A-01K013)

> Will it be the same for any of the L500 series?
I think so. If you compare your L500 with other models (different PSxxxx number) the difference is offered hardware package like CPU, GPU, HDD capacity, ports maybe but, generally speaking, the LCD panel is always the same.

I recently changed the screen of my HP ENVY x360 [model: 15t-aq100] with this exact screen I got from eBay. I took out three cables and the little chipboard thingy, put back the little chipboard thingy and three cables and--voil! The screen turns on and I get an image and, besides my little issue, it works fine.

My issue is that the touch screen function doesn't work at all--the computer recognizes that there is a "HID-compliant touch screen" when I open up my device manager and that it is enabled--but even after updating whatever software it wants me to update--even going so far as updating Windows 10 *shudder*--I don't get a response when my greasy little fingers caress the screen. The touch capability was working before and after the fall--I don't think any other cables or sensors got damaged, just the screen.

So my question becomes this: the screen I bought was touchscreen capable, right? It looks exactly like the old cracked one. How can I tell whether or not the screen itself is touch screen capable? If you don't think it's the screen I bought that's the problem, but something I did, what should I do? I tried inserting and reinserting cables and restarting the computer. I haven't tried searching for drivers for the screen, but I don't know where or how to find those. I'm honestly at a loss of ideas as of how to resolve this, so

Here is a link to the computer maintenance and service guide if that... Read more

Hi I am after some advice. A few months ago my laptop screen gave up the ghost. The laptop would boot up fine and I could use the TV or another monitor, however I went ahead and ordered a new screen, 3rd party. However the display on the screen doesn't fit within the monitor if that makes sense, there is a gap to the left of the screen about an inch wide and for the full length of the screen. The mouse will not track there, it is simply where the display ends. Also at the bottom of the screen, the display continues on beyond the screen so that my toolbar or the bottom of the page I am browsing is lost.  Thinking I maybe had a dud screen I returned the purchase and ordered a new one but have the same problem. It's like looking at a minimised web page. Any ideas?

Hello everyone and thanks so much for your time. (Hope Im doing this right) I have the yoga 3 pro two in one tablet and have enjoyed it very much. Unfortunately it was dropped and the screen was broken so I took it upon myself (which might have been bad) to buy a new screen and replace it myself. I used step by step instructions but after I finished and tried powering it on nothing happened. Do I need to reset something or should it just turn on? The mother board was removed along with quite a few other things... /: please help. Not sure if I should rip into it again or hire a professional. AT THE LEAST I need to retrieve photos and videos of my daughter. Thank you for your time.

Hi All,

I hope you can help me,

I have just replaced the screen on my Qosmio F750 that unluckily ran out of warranty two weeks ago so i don't qualify for support,

When i have replaced the screen i followed all standard procedure to replace any screen,

But for some reason now the screen won't turn come on (Everything works when plugged into HDMI).

There is no backlight or image on screen i tried fitting the old screen and that also doesn't work.

Any help at all would be very much appreciated.

Thanks all,


Answer:Qosmio F750 Screen replacement problems


Are you sure that the new screen is OK and compatible?
Was the screen connected properly?

I guess there is nothing wrong with the motherboard or graphic chip since the external monitor seems to be OK.
Therefore I think it?s either an connection problem or maybe you used wrong or faulty display.

I replaced my screen and it function properly. After I did a function check I turn my computer off and then turned it back on and it just stop workin. The computer does not turn on at all.Did I mess up my battery or something. Has this happend to anyone before?????

Answer:Thinkpad t61p series....screen replacement problems

You could have shorten something.Try to remove the battery and start again. But before remove battery, press power button fpor 40 seconds and try to start the machine without the battery in the machine. If that doesn't work ask Lenovo to help you. Self replacement isn't covered by warranty tho.

I have a Thinkpad W500 40612HU (WSXGA+ LG screen). It has been a solid performer without any problems since I bought it in 2009; the extended warranty runs until 9/2013,  but I intend to use it well beyond that date (I can't afford a more recent equivalent W eries Thinkpad anyway).Before Christmas the screen started to go bonkers. Here's an album of the later stages of the problem, when the screen had become unusable and I was about to bring the notebook to the closest Lenovo warranty partner: screen was covered in small white and black squares will moved, vibrated and multiplied like some kind of viral particles gradually killing the screen off.The warranty partner service company has ordered a new LCD, inverter and main planar board. The first two have arrived, the planar is still on order, two weeks after giving them the notebook.I phoned Lenovo customer support this afternoon to find out if the particular mainboard type, FRU 42W8133, was still available and was told there was no stock available, new or refurbished. Interestingly enough, a quick Google search for 42W8133 showed Canadian companies with new stock (I'm resident in Canada): and are two examples.Since I intend to use this personal notebook well past its warranty expiration in 9/2013, I would natu...

Hi all

I have an S70 - A -11H that was bought about 9 months ago

Recently I have been noticing a problem with the screen at start up and it only seems to happen after the machine has been off for a few hours.

Everything loads OK but there is a thin block of transparent blue at the bottom of the screen that can separate into lines and then disappear or it might turn pink and then disappear.

Some days are worse than others and some days it doesn't appear at all.
Trying to fix the issue is proving difficult because the machine has to be off for ages before I can see if the problem still exists which is why it would be easier to know what it was in the first place! I have tried to make a video to show you below:


I have done a BIOS update and I have done a hard reset but apart from that I am not sure what else I can do as I am not the most technically minded.

The laptop is still under warranty so that is not a problem but I wanted to see if anyone else has had this issue or might know what the problem is.

Many thanks


Answer:Satellite S70-A-11H - Screen problems


I?m not quite sure what could cause this screen issue but you could check if the same thin transparent line will be visible on external screen.

Connect an external 2nd monitor and check this.

In case the same issue would be visible on the external monitor, the graphic chip could be affected? otherwise it must be something wrong with the display panel?

Anyway, it looks like a hardware related issue and therefore its strongly recommended to contact the authorized servicer provider in order to check the hardware parts?

I would recommend you to do that because the warranty seems to be still valid because the notebook is only 9 month old.

Hello everyone! I'm posting about a problem with my Toshiba P100-202's screen. I recently posted in the thread "Satellite P100-202: screen will freeze" and my current problem is actually quite similar to what is explained in the thread "Satellite P100-119: display doesn't work anymore". Here's my story, hoping that someone will be able to help me avoid having to send the computer to a technician:
After my previous problem I decided to get my screen replaced. Everything seemed fine, apart from on occaisonal instances, especially when I was using the program "Internet Explorer", in which the screen would sort of restart, ie. everything went black for a few seconds (music etc. however would continue) and then (boom) everything would reappear, sometimes in ultra-zoom for a second or two. The computer (operating system=Windows 7) would report "problem with NVIDIA graphics driver", and then operations would continue normally. This happened several times, although not frequently, and I wasn't too worried about it. And then, a few days ago, I was using the newest release candidate of Internet Explorer 9, and the screen blacked out, and my music continued, and I thought "OK, no problem", and then a few seconds passed, and then the music stopped (and I was thinking "uh-oh"), and then... the blue screen of death.
OK, no panic, restart, but of course there's no welcome note, no nothing, just a blank screen which with the backl... Read more

Answer:Satellite P100-202: problems with screen again

Unfortunately I cannot offer some final solution or diagnostic but I think you should test functionality with original recovery image (recovery DVD) you got with your notebook.

Install OS using this disc and test functionality. If the same happen again and again there must be some hardware problem.
If you must bring notebook to the service ask at first how much the repair will cost. Maybe it will be too expensive and you can buy new notebook instead of paying a lot of money to repair this old notebook model.

A few months ago I noticed a thin pink vertical stripe had appeared near the left hand side of my screen that bisects the entire screen and does not disappear whatever else is on the screen. Well I kind of let it slide and now there are hundreds of vertical coloured vertical lines all across the screen. The IT help guy at work states that it is because my toshiba drivers need updating. I have visited their website and tried to download some, but they appear to make no difference or else don't work.

Is this a recognised problem? What causes it? Could it be some physical damage?

Answer:Screen problems with Satellite P100-429

If you see the problem *before* Windows starts (for example in the BIOS or at the Toshiba splash screen), then its not a driver problem.

Sounds like it needs a new LCD if the lines are single pixel in size.
