|Simple power or monitor brightness issues could be the issue, but critical components of your Toshiba Satellite laptop may also be malfunctioning, such as the battery or the display itself. You can perform just a few steps in the comfort of your own home to narrow down which of these problems are affecting your Toshiba.|
Check the power source for your Toshiba Satellite laptop. Often the easiest solutions are the ones that can fix a computer problem, so check for this first.
