Customer Question
Hello I have 2 Toshiba...
Hello I have 2 Toshiba Satellite Pro L100 laptops both with different problems which I hope you can help with..
The First laptop boots up and works fine but the screen is very dimm/dark - I have changed the screen and the Inverter board but it has made no difference. The laptop works fine when plugged into external monitor.
The Second laptop has suddenly stopped working and when I switch it on it lets out 2 short / medium beeps and then reboots - there is nothing being displayed on the screen on this one even when external monitor plugged in.
Can anyone help ?

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
