I have a Toshiba 1110 Satellite and for some reason, the lcd backlight wont power on. When I start it up, I get the "Toshiba" splash screen and then the backlight shuts off. I can just barely see the windows desktop.
Heres the strange part, I plugged in an external monitor and then restarted, causing the lcd to light up perfectly. The screen will then stay on until the next time the monitor is shut off, then it's back to not working.
I already had the inverter replaced and that did not help and then the repair shop wanted 700 bucks for a new screen ( how those idiots figure that $700 is an economical quote for a 3 yr. old computer, I do not know )
Anyway, it seems that the screen works perfectly fine until I shut the it off. So I am kind of baffled as to why it wont power on unless I plug in an external monitor (????????). Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.
Just a side note: if I have to replace the screen, am I able to use any compatible 14.1" TFT? Because I heard that the compaq presario 1700 uses the same screen and there are quite a few on ebay for next to nothing.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
