Specs: Windows vista
Black screen Toshiba satellite a215. I've changed the MB, bought a new RAM card, still black screen. I've connected to an external monitor, still black screen. Tried all the battery fixes, off and on fixes, function and F5 fixes, nothing. Maybe try a hammer and smash it, that's how fed up I am spending $ to try to fix it. Someone help please

"spending $ to try to fix"
Don't spend any $ until we are 100% sure you need to.

The A215 is very outdated (released in 2007) & came with Vista. You would have been better off investing in a new laptop.

✔ Best Answer
Replacing the motherboard is a very drastic step. You must have
tried many other things first. Without knowing anything about the
specific Toshiba motherboard, my guess is that the video on your
original motherboard failed, and you replaced it with a previously-
owned motherboard on which the video had also failed, probably
in the same way, for the same reason.
