I got 3 various Toshiba laptops whose screens suddenly refuse to work. Most of them displaying white. But if an external monitor is connected, it displays.
What could be the problem(s). How can they be resolved?

its ok i have had my toshiba A70 back to toshiba 7 times in its warranty life and it still is not working, they refuse to replace it as they belive it is my problem. the right click mouse menu appears randomly and always when i hit the backspace key it is not a virus as after every fresh re-install as soon as i log into it bang! it happens. i will never buy another toshiba again.

I agree I have always had Tosh laptops, but not any more. My Tecra S1 is on its third DVD writer and second motherboard. I now have a Compaq/HP which has been totally solid.

anyone noticed toshiba's weird placing of the "windows" and "context" key to the top right of the keyboard? how weird and un-windows-friendly it is?

Anyway, HP/Compaq or Dell or IBM would be better choice. Oh how about Apple? heheh
