    Hiya all! I have big problems here. First of all, Im trying to troubleshoot a toshiba m45-s169 laptop with windows xp sp2 home in it. The problem was that the screen wouldnt come up until I logged in (you could see a dim image while booting up and an external screen works, so I guess is not the video card nor the inverter since I tried a new one)... so I changed the adapter settings to "auto" and after that I get a blank screen with the backlight on right after windows loading (I can hear the sound when the desktop is fully loaded though). So I try to boot under safe mode but it freezes halfway, still in text mode. I have tried all the options under F8 and none works except Last known good config and normal boot, but I cant see anything. Can anyone help me? Thanks


    UPDATE: I took the hd apart and ran a chkdsk from another laptop. It found no errors.
