My Toshiba laptop screen turns off sometimes

Specs: Windows Vista
My Toshiba laptop screen turns off at 90 - 100 degree angle. It turns on again as you open it further, but it's hart to work with the laptop when display is at 110 degree angle. Any suggestions?

The wiring between the built in display and the video adapter is probably damaged.

Laptop no video (or video problems), and battery, AC adapter, power jack T shooting.

See response 1:

DO NOT plug in or unplug a monitor's video cable into / from a video port while the computer is running. Doing so can damage the monitor's circuits and/or the video adapter's circuits.

Some laptops will display on an external monitor without you having to do anything.

If you get no video on an external monitor, some laptops have a key combo that you must press to toggle the display to external video only / built in display video only / sometimes both - see the Owner's or User's manual for the model.
