I understand that you are having the issue that you are getting Blurred Pictures while accessing the sites. To answer your query with the proper steps the information about the Browser you are using is required. If you are using the Internet Explorer you may follow the steps: Launch the Internet Explorer browser by double-clicking its Desktop icon or selecting it from the Start menu. Click "Tools" in the top menu bar of Internet Explorer. Select "Internet Options" from the drop-down menu. Click the "Advanced" tab and scroll down to Multimedia. Check the box next to "Smart Image Dithering." This will help to ensure that images are loaded properly. Right-click on the image in Internet Explorer and select "View Original Image" from the pop-up menu. This will force the browser to display the original image. Check to see if any installed Internet browsing accelerators are compressing your browsing too much and causing the blurred pictures. For example, the MSN Accelerator (used to enhance the speed of an individual's Internet connection) can sometimes cause blurry images due to high levels of compression. Right-click the "MSN Accelerator" in your Windows task bar (bottom right-hand corner of your PC's screen) and set the level of compression to "None." If you are using the other browser you may try resetting the settings. Even in Internet explorer you may reset. But note that resetting the Brower may deleted the saved information like password and auto fill.

For additional help if you need please revert back with the exact details like the browesr you are using.

You may also try updating the flash player and check the operations

I recommend that you try updating the video driver and check the operation. You may also try using the computer in safe mode and check the operation. Any issues with the video driver will cause the issue with the display. If it is not working, to confirm that the issue to be hardware, you can try a system recovery. If re installing the operating system does not resolve the issue then you need to get the unit serviced.

You can the model specific informatioon and the drivers here:

Toshiba Satellite P100 screen Inverter replacement;

1) http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-P105-P100/remove-lcd-screen-inverter-1.htm

(You can click on any photo to enlarge it. At the top, and bottom of the page are the page numbers. They are in white; Page1 :: Page2 :: Find another model )

2) Primer:
An LCD screen cannot produce light. It needs an additional light source.
A Backlight is the additional light source.

A Backlight (Present technology) is a CCFL, or a series of LED lights.
The Toshiba Satellite P100 series of Notebook PC's uses a CCFL.

Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

Average size is approximately 2mm Thick, and the length is close to the height of the LCD screen. 2mm is a little larger than 1/16th of an inch.

This means the CCFL can be broken quite easily, as it is fragile. (You also DO NOT want to be cut by a Fluorescent lamp )


A screen Inverter converts the power from the laptop, for the Backlight, and LCD screen.

As previously stated in a Clarification, 90 PERCENT OF THE TIME the fault is the screen Inverter.


(I never request commendations, but thank you for offering.
We, the older techs here, feel that is begging.

It means that your version of windows can only use 3 GB of your ram. This is a limitation of 32bit operating systems, due to the way the memory is addressed, which only allows upto 3GB. If you want to use 4 GB or more then you'll need a 64bit operating system. You do have a 64bit laptop so it's just a matter of installing a 64 bit version of windows. Or another operating system if you prefer, I can't stand windows personally.

If you've already got a 64bit operating system installed, then there may be something wrong with one of the modules, in which case you should be able to get a replacement.

Hope this helps.

I have the same computer. Recently, it started shutting down without noticed after an hour use, sometime earlier after heavy use. I did a Google search and find out that some Toshiba has overheating problem, and it was recommended to clean it the heat sink. If that is dirty the heat can not escape. I used a vacuum cleaner to **** out the dirt. It worked after so far.
A year ago, I had an other problem, I upgraded the memory, I used the Vista memory test. It did not reported errors. It became unstable, it would run for weeks without problem when for no reason would give file read errors, and all kind of problems,... So I created a bootable USB drive with memtes on it. My Toshiba booted to a linux op. and run the "memtest". It reported error on my newly installed memory. ... I used the recovery disk to have a clean start.
Also, during those times and sometime after, I've got those message, your window can be start, do you want to rollback to a previous point. Many time that message can be ignored, and just persist to start Window normally. Eventually it will, (if you know that your memory is working). I hope this helped.

there should've been a restore disc that came with the computer. If you have it you will be able to restore drivers offline. If it didn't come with one you may have a model where the back up/restore disc needs to be burned from the hdd.

If the LCD screen is not cracked, then the screen may not need replacing, the fault may be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.
