Tecra 8100 - screen goes black sometimes

Hi members,
I recently got a Tecra 8100 for cheap on eBay.

The screen sometimes goes black its still on I need to press the shaft close to the screen and it beeps sound sounds and back on.

I removed the frame of the screen and it made the difference for a about a week but just happen again:(mais je croise les doigts pas très souvent.)

I read on google etc. it can be sumtin with led, etc. I just want to know how to replace the part?
What part I need to replace etc.?

I disable all power management things, and sometimes even of it is would no doubt something with the screen.

I need ideas how to resolve this because it's a good laptop for a student lol prity.
Thanks for reading and any rear power



Sorry, but it's really not easy to say what needs to be replaced.
But it s certainly a hardware problem I put t know what should I PIN you meant exactly, but maybe a loose connection is causing this problem I mean a FL-inverter connection

Here's a useful page [how remove and replace card ups FL on Toshiba Tecra 8100 | http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Tecra-8100/remove-replace-fl-inverter-board.htm]

Maybe it could be useful for you

In any case, these hardware issues are always delicate, and in most cases, each unique piece, and the connection must be checked. It's not easy, and in most cases and the computer laptop technician should take a look on this laptop

  • Satellite P100 - the screen goes black


    I have a Satellite P100 and randomly, the screen goes black but the system continues to operate. I downloaded the latest drivers from toshiba, all power options the maximum support, run ccleaner and driver Sweeper to remove the old entries driver, re-installed the login screen of the mobo and nothing seems to work.

    The screen goes black sometimes when using windows but STILL turns black as soon as the ramps of gpu for example of playing a video or comparative analysis of the graphics card.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    > ALWAYS goes black as soon as the ramps of gpu for example of playing a video or comparative analysis of the graphics card.
    This means that the graphics card is defective

    Theoretically, it could be an overheating problem too. Higher time can also cause a black screen. You should try everything that is possible to clean your laptop using the jet of compressed air to blow the dust from the cooling fans.

    If it doesn t help it seems to be a hardware malfunction but seriously a point would be interesting: have you noticed the same thing with preinstalled OS (Vista) Toshiba?

  • Spectrum x 360: screen goes black randomly when on battery and some energy-saving options enabled

    Hello everyone,

    I bought this fantastic machine called spectrum x 360 and I love it.

    Unfortunately since the early days I'm facing what I think it's a problem of driver/software (not the related material).

    This problem only occurs when I'm on Windows, not in the bios or at the startup. JUST IN Windows envinroment, especially after the login, and when the computer was turned off. Sometimes when I use it after a while, randomly.
    This occurs only when the spectrum is on battery. The problem does not appear on AC adapter.

    Problem: the screen goes black randomly for a few seconds and then reappear, sometimes the entire image on the right slide and there is a part that looks like yellow and corrupt, then goes black and reappears.

    Windows Version: I'm on Windows Home 64 bit, build 14393.321 10 (update of the anniversary).

    The entire screen works fine for normal operations, no artifacts.

    Replication of the problem
    Initially, I was able to reproduce the problem with the driver build 4360 (which is the version of the driver from the HP site). Whenever I loaded the home page of youtube and the banner has started playing on the screen went black sistematicly.
    Then I updated the GPU driver through the Device Manager, which has improved my GPU driver to, as of July 25, 2016 and the problem happens much more rarely.
    Now I am facing this problem again but Edge works correctly and is not the cause of the problem, it can appear even when I don't do anything with the PC.

    I noticed this problem appears when saving options are enabled for the Intel GPU (I'm trying to translate this to English because the GPU driver Panel is in Italian):

    -update panel houses;
    -advanced mode; energy saving

    If I disable these options, the problem does not appear or, better, for I've tested so far, he could not displayed when options are not in market, but I have not tested this very long to be sure.

    In my opinion, there is a bug in the display driver, or some customizations made by HP causes problems with the driver.
    The rest of the computer works correctly.
    Any idea to solve this problem? Or should I keep these options turned off power saving?

    Hi, thanks for your help.

    I have a passion for COMPUTING and ex-computer SCIENTIST, I am familiar in surveys on hardware/software questions and hope that this post will help some users get rid of this problem.
    Black screens and screen corruption has been issued by the option called "auto refresh Panel" energy saving.
    I did a lot of hours on battery (condition where this pop ups problem) in these days and the problem didn't show when it was turned off.
    To verify that I tried to activate "Panel options self-identity" in certain occasions and, at random, on the first boot of the machine (after being turned off) the problem arises again.
    It certainly is a problem with this energy-saving option.
    Now everything works fine.
    If the problem appears again, I will post more information.
    Thank you for your support.

    I think it would be useful to stick this post on top in this section of the forum, to be useful to other users and being more visible.

  • Satellite A210 - screen goes black without any reason!

    I got my satellite A210-171 for a few years and a few months ago, everything was OK.
    But our when I'm working or watching a web my screen goes black and nothing seems to work?
    The only way around this is to turn off the power switch on the laptop then restart it again.

    I then get a message saying roughly...
    Computer has not closed properly OR sound closed to protect all data, then a countdown begins to re open!

    It may be OK for a few hours or maybe a day there is no limit of time on it!
    If anyone can help I would be very grateful, but please don't use of computer jargon that I don't understand

    Thank you


    It is really hard to tell what is causing this problem. It could be a hardware malfunction or a software problem.
    But as Auma says you should test the RAM with Memtest86. It's really very easy to use and can detect modules memory defective RAM check it!

    Another question is have you installed a different display driver or updated? I ask this question because the display drivers they are not causing Toshiba sometimes of questions.
    In any case, I would recommend updated display driver and check the site Web of Toshiba for a update.

    And before moving on to an authorized service provider reinstall you Windows using the Toshiba recovery disc. So you will get back factory settings and with these settings, your laptop should work fine.

    Good bye

    Hello mcbethtings:

    Welcome to Hp forum. Your question is not in the list. http://h10025.www1.HP.com/ewfrf/wc/documentSubCategory?tmp_rule=56801&tmp_task=solveCategory&CC=UK&DLC=en&lang=en&LC=en&product=4100044 So, in this case I sujest a restore back to remove what are the mistakes caused by a bad AVG update. GoTo all programs search and type in Recovery Manager click that above and open it. Click Yes (white box) so it apears. Select Microsoft System Restore Click next to three windows now you will see a list of dates, select a date prior to the installation of the update, then click. Let the computer do its restoration. Once done see if your problem is solved, if so try the update again, make you that the update is for 64-bit Windows 7 computers before you download it again. If that happens again once you know what AVG is not compatible for your computer.

    Probably you have only received part of the witch update caused this problem due to the disruption of atmospheres. Sometimes this happens. Put day of my HP only made once. I just did a restore back and downloaded the update again and the second time through work. Please click on Bravo if this solves your problem. Thank you frrw.

  • My screen goes black, but is still on. My computer shuts down everything he does and I have to restart so that it become operational.

    I said the video card is corrupted or is overheating.
    The screen goes black randomly. Sometimes 2 minutes playing or until hours later. Sometimes it will not.

    Connect the computer to another monitor. If the problems are gone, replace the original monitor. If the problems persist, then you have hardware problems on your computer. You can troubleshoot the hardware yourself:


    This includes exchanging the video card for a well-known work.

    On tests of hardware failures often alleged swapping parts by parts checked. If you can not do the test yourself and/or are uncomfortable opening your computer, take the machine to a professional computer repair shop (not your local equivalent of BigComputerStore/GeekSquad). If possible, have all your data backed up before taking the machine into a shop.

  • My screen goes black and the start menu does not load after start up logo and the only thing on the screen I see is my mouse pointer

    My screen goes black and the start menu does not load after start up logo and the only thing on the screen I see is my mouse pointer


    You can access Mode safe? Repeatedly press F8 as you start? If yes you can try Control Panel - device
    Manager - graphics card - Double click on - driver tab - click on UPDATE driver - then right click
    on devices and UNINSTALL - REBOOT.

    Another method to try to get to the desktop (try in normal Windows Mode without failure)
    CTRL + ALT + DELETE and on the tab process EXPLORER.exe and COMPLETE the PROCESS on this subject - then
    on the Applications tab - lower right - new task - type in EXPLORER.exe. Safe mode is reached
    by tapping F8 as you start several times.

    First check this thread in case it is simple and if not to come back to this thread.


    Black screen problems are extremely difficult to repair and all patch is usually on a base hit or miss.
    That there is no information on a black screen as it is on a blue screen just adds to the
    Difficulty. Often using a restore point or Startup Repair will have no effect. You can try a
    Google to see the proposed repairs, whom some have worked however these cover a wide
    field efforts.

    Here's a video of one of them.


    Here's another fix

    You have a Vista disk? You can try restoring the system to it. If you do not have your system disks
    manufacturer will sell them at low prices. Or try in safe mode if you can get there.

    How to make a Vista system restore

    You can create a recovery disc or use someone even version (to do the system restore there only to)
    being bootable).

    How to create a Vista recovery disk


    These require the correct Vista discs since you can not start safe mode.

    Try the Startup Repair tool-

    This tells you how to access the System Recovery Options and/or with a Vista disk

    Try recovery options Startup Repair

    How to do a startup repair


    Here are a few Google searches where many have found different solutions:

    If necessary and you can access all ordinary Windows.

    You can try an In-Place Upgrade (hopefully save programs and data) or a repair installation (if all goes well
    saves the data, and you need to reinstall the programs). Be sure to do a good backup or three.

    You can use another DVD that are not protected but you will need to copy you have the product key.

    On-site upgrade

    If nothing works, you can make a repair facility that must save the data but you will need to
    Reinstall the programs. This also requires correct Vista disks especially for OEM versions. You will be

    Another method that works sometimes: at the command prompt, type of Vista startup disk:
    (type in a single line or copy / paste a line at a time and then press enter - type no parenthesis)
    or "BOLD"



    CD c:\Windows\System32\winevt (there is a space between cd and C :)
