Re: Odd Toshiba laptop display problem

I'm guessing this is an LED? (don't see an inverter on the 2nd pic)

The odds of getting 2 bad screens is unlikely, but it CAN happen. I had an issue with a Dell laptop that would only work right with a specific screen, any other screen would cause odd problems, being very dark, to artifacts, to just not working. So it's POSSIBLE, just not likely.

I would suspect a bad video chip. There's also a chance you have a bad cable - even the new one. Check for any pinches on the cable.

The 3rd display yielded the same results, so I just convinced my client it was time for a new laptop. He is now happy with a new Asus, and this Toshiba has been sold to a craigslist buyer who only cared that the VGA output worked normally.
