My laptop has a black screen. I've tried everything mentioned in this forum and others, still black screen. The last thing I tried was cleaning the CPU which was corroded with white stuff, but nothing has worked. All the lights come on saying it has power and is charging, and I can hear the fan kick on. Does anyone have any advice or know something else I can try?
Toshiba satellite L655 windows 7. It was working fine last night. I powered it off as usual and when I tried to get on it today the black screen appeared. Any advice or information would be greatly appreciated!!
There is another possibility to consider. You never know.
Magnetic On/Off Switch to detect of Close/Open Lid
- Your magnet switch is fubar some how. Open up the speaker cover and see if your lid actuator switch that comes in contact with the magnet on your lid cover is stuck or not (find where the magnet is in the back of the front lid cover, trace where the magnet area actually touches the base of the computer and you will find the switch)
- Workaround, start windows with lid at 30 degree angle
