laptop display shutdown!

  bobkil 15:17 19 Aug 2003

I have a Toshiba Tecra 8100 laptop machine. I installed Win XP Pro. And everything seemed OK. It has now started to cause the display too dim down at random intervals. The only recovery is to cycle ?function+F5? through a full cycle, 4 strokes with a delay between them.

This key combination is listed as changing the display thru internal TFT, external monitor, and external TV. I have shut down all the power save and screen saver options to no effect. Any ideas on how to cure this???

Which Operating system did you upgrade from?

Also try disabling Advanced Power Management.

All power management has been shut off within the hardware and XP.

Upgrade was from NT-4 SP5.

Check on the laptop manufacturers site for driver updates.

Alse XP has a lot more services set to start as default than NT click here try disabling the ones you dont need.
