Laptop help Jul. 3rd, 2012 @ 11:22 PM Reply

Hello NG, i need some help. I cant pin point the problem of my laptop, but im certain something is wrong with the display. I have an older Toshiba Satellite a205-s5000.
I cant see anything on the screen, its basically the picture with no light. I think i need an inverter, but would i need to buy a whole new screen for it?
Any help would be appreciated.

I believe you are right.

If you are, then it would be easier to buy a new screen.

However, have you checked if the problem isnt the software?

I cant check anything software related, its basically impossible to see whats on the screen. It also doesnt help it was my friends, and he forgot his password. So i need a fresh install of Windows and a new screen. Great. Any vendor recommendations?
