Toshiba Satellite A75-s211, brigtness/contrast issues after install of ram

\015 Took ram out for inspect, in preparation to add more, when turn computer back on loaded default, now screen is dim and not sure how to correct\015

Answers :

Make sure that you have solid A/C power. On battery alone, your power settings might be set to "maximum battery" which will really dim your screen.

Removing RAM properly will not affect your computer or LCD. It's similar to "I ran out of gas, so my tire went flat" ...one has nothing to do with the other ...however, note that I said "properly" removed. If you used a metal object (like a screwdriver or similar device) to "help" remove the RAM, you might have shortcircuited the motherboard, video or a combination of the two.

You can narrow the problem down by connecting to an external monitor. If the video looks great on it, you have a bad LCD and should consider yourself lucky that's all it is. If the video is the same on the external, you did something to the motherboard which would warrant a replacement. At $200-$400 plus labor, that's not good.

Hope this helps - remember to rate :)
