Tecra S1: Screen starts flashing and is now black

Hello. I have a Toshiba Tecra S1. Its 4 years.

Last night my screen suddenly started flashing and my computer froze. I had to reboot my computer and then the screen starts sometimes, but mostly it stays black. If splash screens, I have only gently shake the computer until the screen flashes again and the computer crashes.

Otherwise, it seems that the computer works as it should do.

Could you please tell my computer can be repaired or should I think about buying a new computer.

Best regards



In my opinion there would be something wrong with the motherboard.
Perhaps dysfunction of VGA chip maybe some covers may come into contact with the VGA chip and cause of could short-circuit.
This could be an explanation why the screen flashes and the computer hangs after a shaking gently.

But buddy note; Here are just a few suggestions and you should contact the ASP if you want to know what's wrong s and what causes this problem.

  • MacBook Pro freezes, screen starts shaking and shuts

    I am facing a problem that after starting to use the macbook for a few minutes. Screen suddenly starts to shake quickly. Everything freezes, and if all the sounds played, last moments will continue to repeat. This happens for like 10 seconds until the computer turns off completely. https://www.YouTube.com/watch?v=jpvRcQLdWXc

    My MacBook pro is mid 2014 13 "version. I guess it started to happen after updating to 10.11.4. I tried to reinstall and the problem is still there. Test hardware receives no error. I figured it could be a heating problem. But after, it seems that this happens even at ordinary temperatures. This screenshot is just taken immediately after a crash.

    I fixed it by clearing the NVRAM.

    Here's how to reset your PRAM:

    1. Turn your machine off. Yes, while down, no sleep, or a disconnection.
    2. Press the power button and press command-option-p-r. ...
    3. Hold these keys down until your Mac what it charges again and you here the startup chime.
    4. Release the keys and let your Mac restarts normally.

  • Mac Pro Intel of dead money and does not start flashes and clicks

    I have an old Silver Mac Pro that I use for a disk hard/servers in the farm. Yesterday, that click on it all of a sudden off the coast. It is on after power up. So now he's doing the following:

    It snaps, white light, he snaps, white light goes back off the coast.

    If I disconnect, reconnect it, and then press the light button turns with a simple click and clicks right back off again.

    I think power but would like advice.

  • I just updated to Firefox 23.0 for Macs and installed updates for Flash and Silverlight; Now Google 'search tools' &amp; find image will not work correctly. Suggestions?

    When I click on 'search tools', options are no longer displayed (for example, the tool that allows a search of limited date or search for videos of different lengths). I happened to have a search page open before the update and drop-down menus to search tools always appear on this page, but if I click on it, the menu drops down, so I can't change the options. When I do an image search, the results page shows only 20 or if the images and the rest of the results appear only as gray rectangles with/without any image. Search tools work normally in other browsers, I installed it, but Firefox is my default browser (and I'm happy with that), so I want to fix the problem. I don't know if it is associated with the updates, I did yesterday, but it's the only thing I can think of that's changed. Before that, the search tools have been working properly.
