Problem: Toshiba Satellite 3000 defaults to VGA out



New Member
I have a Toshiba Satellite 3000, and I have a problem with the display.

When I boot, the LCD screen remains off. No light at all. Then, if I boot while connecting an external monitor, the monitor lights up, but the LCD does not.

However, I can switch to the LCD screen by toggling the external monitor/LCD function (FN + F5 for the toshiba), so the LCD screen is working fine. This cannot be done if I boot in safe mode, though (HUH?)

Help, please?

Welcome TabbyCat :cool:

So what you're saying is, you can't switch between display options in Safe Mode? If that's the case, it wouldn't be that unusual. Safe Mode normally lacks many features.
