Fixing a Toshiba L300 with Broken Screen (In North Burnaby)
I picked up this Toshiba L300 which had the condition below:
"have a broken laptop (toshiba). used it for only 4 months but accidentally dropped it so the screen doesn't work now."
Since the laptop was used for 4 months only, it is still quite new. When I booted up the laptop, it had video to the broken screen. I connected it to external monitor. The video output is good. The only part that I needed to change is the LCD screen.
I disassembled the keyboard and checked the fan underneath. Except some dust on the blades, the vent was not clogged. After brushing and vacumming the dust away, I added lubrication to the fan to eliminate the bit of noice when the fan was running.
This laptop does not have function key at boot up for me to start up the recovery. It had user logon password. From the hint, I logged on and found the Create Recovery Disc program. It created two discs. I ran them and selected the option to recovery the laptop to factory out-of-the-box condition to destroy previous owner's data.
I charged the battery to 100%. It shows 2 hours. It was picked up by a young man from North Burnaby on 28Dec2012.
