Ok I need some advice.... I have a Toshiba Satellite A215 laptop. The screen is not coming on, but all the lights on the keyboard come on, and it shows its charging on the edge by the keys. I can hear the fan start up, sounds as if the thing is normally running, but nothing is on the screen. I called Toshiba and they did some troubleshooting, and they told me that the problem was the hard drive. I went out and bought a new hard drive, installed it, and put in the restore discs.....still nothing....I have the SAME exact problem. When a light is shined on the screen, nothing can be seen & when I plug in an external monitor to it, nothing comes on the monitor either. Its as if the computer is working but the screen is crap. I had a friend mention it could be a video card??? Anyone ever heard of this problem or have any recommendations? Thanks!
