Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook ?

Can't get my laptop to display on a monitor.

\015 I hooked my girlfriend's computer up to my monitor and it worked fine, but when i hook my Toshiba Satellite A105 up to it nothing. About a year ago I spilled some ramen noodles on my laptop and i turned it over to make sure it was dry before i started to use it again, the spill was right over the monitor port. Don't know if that would have killed the port or what.\015

Answers :

Most laptops require you to press the Fn (Function) key and another key on the keyboard to activate the external video port, not too sure which button on your model it is, but it should look like a monitor.

Other than that it could be your board is fried. Which will need replacement/ repair.
