Fix For My Toshiba Computer Screen That is Black, No Display, Distorted, Has Lines Or Glows


hi Liz with egghead fixers today we’ve been discussing what to do with my Toshiba computer turns on but nothing comes on the screen it remains blank or dark or maybe has a slight glow has lines or it’s distorted we’re going to show you a quick and easy fix if your computer turns on and it does display something like your logo that’s a different fix that’s the video in the description down below but this is purely for if it doesn’t display or if the display is distorted or with lines but anyway on to the repair okay so your computer turns on but the screen remains black or blank like you see in this video or perhaps it glows like you see in this photo or perhaps it’s distorted or has lines one of the easiest possible reasons that this is a bad Ram stick so we will show you a simple test you can perform to figure out if one of your sticks of RAM have gone bad now first you can unplug your computer and remove your battery next you’re gonna look for an easy access panel for you to get to your RAM stick if you can’t find this easy access panel perhaps you don’t have one or it’s hard to find on yours go ahead and look up a disassembly video on your make and model of your computer or visit your manufacturers website now remove this easy access panel and we’re gonna take out one stick of RAM just like so and we’re gonna do it by putting both of our fingers on one on each arm and pulling out like seen in this shot right here we’re gonna remove one stick of RAM because Ram is like a headlight on a car they tend to go one at a time so we’re gonna see if it works with just one stick we’re gonna close the computer up like you see in this video put that panel back on keeping in mind there’s only one stick of RAM so you know if there’s one stick of RAM in there and it works well then you know it’s a problem with your rent with the other Ram stick now you’re gonna put the battery back in and you’re gonna plug your computer back up back in your plea you’re gonna plug your computer back in now you’re gonna try turning it on now if it still doesn’t display that’s okay we’re gonna try it again we do the same method but we’re gonna try removing the other stick of RAM so take your battery out on plug your computer and go back into that easy access panel now as a quick shout-out occasionally it can be a problem where your RAM is loose so you may just need to reinsert both RAM sticks and see if it turns on this is a less likely scenario but it’s always worth checking so once you get back into your computer you’re gonna take that other Ram stick out just like so and you’re going to put the other Ram stick back in because it could be one of these sticks have gone bad so we’re gonna try reversing it and we’re gonna put the panel back on and we’re going to do a simpler thing now we help you out at the end of this video when we show you how what to look for and how to order another Ram stick by giving you the the making kind of RAM you have showing you in a picture and we also tell you how to continue the troubleshooting method if you find that it isn’t your RAM stick so hang in there all right now panel is all shut up the batteries back in I’m gonna plug it back in and you’re going to try once again turning on your computer if your computer springs to life then you know it’s a problem with that other Ram stick it’s time to order another Ram stick now how you do this is first look for for what the make is write this down you can order the same kind and then now look for what the model number is right down to the S you usually don’t need to include the s as a part of the number you can write just the rest of the numbers into eBay or Amazon and pull out the right kind of RAM stick now to continue the troubleshooting method if you find it isn’t indoor Ram the next thing you’re gonna need to do is try connecting it to an external monitor to see if it displays to it if it does then you know that it’s most likely a problem of your LCD or your LCD cable now the next thing after that if that does not work you need to try to replace your CMOS battery it’s less likely in the RAM but it does happen you can refer to the video down below I will show you how to perform a BIOS reset which involves removing the CMOS battery you can use this video to show you how to replace the CMOS battery because this oftentimes when a CMOS battery has gone bad it can cause these kinds of display issues so that would be the next logical choice is to try to replace that CMOS battery and like I said down below we show you what it looks like and how to remove it properly from your motherboard thanks for watching I hope this video is helpful if it was in any way awful please go ahead like share if you have questions leave comments down below we’re
