LCD screen cracked, and Three even strips going across? Doubtful. Haven't seen it but I always have my mind open.

Three strips that are irregularly shaped? Look like glass that has cracked?
'Jagged edges'?

LCD screen is broken.

Three even strips indicates to me, that there may be a problem with the Video Cable. Then the screen Inverter is next in the diagnoses.
My money is on the Video Cable.

ALL power removed, Anti-Static Precautions FOLLOWED, I would check out the graphics chipset first.

1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port on the laptop.
Left rear side. This is an example of a VGA Cable, and VGA connector. (VGA port on a laptop ),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

(Color of connector does Not matter. It is generally Blue, though)

You can use a CRT type of monitor, (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor if it has a VGA cable.

2) Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on.

There are at least 3 display options available;
1) Laptop internal monitor ONLY
2) Laptop internal monitor AND external VGA monitor
3) External VGA monitor ONLY

Press, and hold down on the Fn key, and at the same time tap once on the F5 key. (The F5 key is the Display Toggle-Over key)

No display on external VGA monitor?
Hold the Fn key down again, and tap once more on the F5 key.

Is the display on the external VGA monitor, the same as the internal monitor of the laptop?

Problem is the graphics chipset.

Display is fine on the external VGA monitor?
Problem is the Video Cable, screen Inverter, or LCD screen.

Video Cable:

A) http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-A105/big/Toshiba-Satellite-A105-14.jpg

Switch Cover removed, Keyboard removed. Shows you where the Video Cable plugs into the motherboard.

B) http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-A105/big/Toshiba-Satellite-A105-21.jpg

Palm Rest Cover you can see the white rectangular connector, for the motherboard side of the Video Cable, at the top left.
It's above the black cable, and near the screw hole.

The Video Cable leads from the motherboard, up through the left Hinge, and into the Display Assembly.
From there it connects to the screen Inverter, and back of the LCD screen.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Toshiba-Satellite-A105-6017B0050801-LCD-Video-Cable-Genuine-OEM-Laptop-TESTED-/290754851160?forcev4exp=true&forceRpt=true

In the photo, (You can hover your mouse cursor on it to enlarge), the right side connector plugs into the back of the LCD screen.

The black connector to the far left connects to the motherboard.
The small white connector at the top with the Red, Green, Black, etc wires, connects to the screen Inverter.

(The small Black cable, that comes out from the black motherboard connector, is a Ground wire )

Due to the close proximity of the Video Cable to the left Hinge, it can be pulled on from just normal opening, and closing of the laptop over time.

This means the Video Cable connection on the motherboard side could be loose, or the LCD screen side, or both.

The diagnoses is to PHYSICALLY check BOTH connections. A loose connection at the motherboard, or at the back of the LCD screen could be so small in distance, that you will not see it with the human eye.

Could also result in damage to the Video Cable.
View the Video Cable with the Switch Cover removed, and see if there are any obvious signs of damage to the sheath of the cable.

If there is there could be damage to the tiny wires inside the Video Cable. (Stretched/Broken)

Use a multimeter set to OHMs, to check all wires inside the Video Cable for continuity, or have a 'Mom and Pop' computer store check it for a few bucks, or replace the Video Cable.

Video cable connections are tight? Video cable continuity check checks out OK?
Screen Inverter.

The test for a screen Inverter is to use a sensitive multimeter.
Read fairly expensive.

http://www.fonerbooks.com/test.htm

Not having access to a sensitive multimeter that you can use, means just replacing the screen Inverter. Seems like 'part changing', and it is, but you have to work with what you've got.

http://www.sparepartswarehouse.com/Toshiba,Satellite,A105,Laptop,Inverters.aspx

Find THE model number for your laptop, and the correct screen Inverter. A screen Inverter, and an LCD screen are a MATCHED unit.

Screen Inverter is checked out to be OK, or replaced, and symptoms are still the same, the problem is the LCD screen.

Remember, the first part of the diagnoses was to see if the divided parts were EVEN going across, or jagged and irregularly shaped.

Jagged in shape, and not even strips going across, means cracks in the LCD screen.
Replace.

How to divide 1 2/3 by 3


First make 1 2/3 into a mixed fraction and then divide it by 3.
To make 1 2/3 into a mixed fraction, multiply the whole number, in this case, 1, by the denominator (the bottom number) and then add the numerator (the top number). Thus, we get (1*3+2)/3 or 5/3. Now we have to take 5/3 and divide it by 3. I was taught that in this case, dividing by 3 is the same as multiplying by 1/3. 5/3 x 1/3 = 5/9.

If you have access to a calculator you can always check this. On the calculator, do 2 divided by 3 and add 1. Now take that answer and divide by 3. Write down this answer. Now take 5 and divide by 9. Write down this answer. They should be the same.

Good luck.

What are 4 different fractions that are equal to 1 1/2


Hi Anonymous,
You can make equivalent fractions by multiplying or dividing both top and bottom by the same amount, but only multiply or divide, never add or subtract, to get an equivalent fraction.
I've only shown the fraction part of your question as 1 is a whole number.
1/2 = 2/4, or 4/8, or 8/16 or 16/32 or 32/64 & so on.
Going the other way, dividing 2/4 by 2 will give 1/2.
But, only divide when the top and bottom would still be whole numbers, for instance you wouldn't use divide for odd number fractions, for example 1/3 or 3/5 etc.
Trust this helps, best regards Alan

How do i factor numbers on a ti-30xs calculator


This calculator does not have a key that you can use to find the prime factor of an integer.
You can however use the calculator to find the factors
1. If number is even divide it by 2
Keep dividing by 2, while keeping track of how many times you divided by 2.
If you divided 5 times by 2 before getting an odd number, then your first factor is 2^5
2. Now try dividing by 3, keep track of the number of times you divided by 3 before you could not divide by 3 any more. If you divided 0 times by 3, your second factor is 3^0, or 1 and 3 is not a factor.
If you divided 4 times by 3, your second factor is 3^4
3. Divide by 5, until you can't any more. Keep track of the number of times you divided by 5.
4. Divide by all other prime numbers 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, etc. For each prime number, keep track of how many times you divided by it, until you could not any more.

Example: 23100
Division by 2
23100/2=11550 ---------> 1 division by 2
11550/2=5775 ----------> 2 divisions by 2
Note that 5775 is not divisible by 2. No more divisions by 2.
First factor is 2^2


Division by 3:
5775/3=1925 ----------> 1 division by 3
1925/3=641. 66667 Not an integer. No more divisions by 3.
2nd factor is 3^1

Division by 5 (number ends in 5)
1925/5 =385 -------> 1 division by 5
385/5=77 ----------> 2 divisions by 5 and no more (quotient does not end in 0 or 5)
3rd factor is 5^2

Division by 7
77/7=11 --------> 1 division by 7, and no more
4th factor is 7^1=7

Division by 11
11/11=1
5th factor is 11^1=11

Assembling the factors 2^2, 3^1, 5^2, 7, 11
Prime factorization of 23100 is
23100=(2^2)(3)(5^2)(7)11

3(3 divide 4) times 8(2 divide 3)


Without knowing your grade or class, I think this problem is to teach you the correct order of doing stuff in a big problem.

1. First you do the parts in parentheses: so 3 divide 4=.75 and 2 divide 3=.66
Then the problem should look like 3(.75) times 8(.66)

2. Then you multiply the number in the parentheses by the number to the left of it: so 3 times .75 = 2.25 and 8 times .66 = 5.28
Then the problem looks like 2.25 times 5.28

3. Multiply what you have and 11.88 should be the answer

How to calculate mode with caso fx-991ES


MOD simply calculates the remainder that is left over after dividing by the MOD parameter.
For example, 10MOD7 = 3 since you can only divide 7 into 10 once, leaving a remainder of 3.
For larger numbers, eg 389487MOD31 you start by dividing 389487 by 31, which gives 12564.09677 (on the display), however you only want the fractional part so subtract 12564 to give 0.0967741935 . This includes the lower value digits that were previously hidden. Then multiply this result by 31 which gives 2.999999999 on the display. Since the result of a MOD calculation has to be a whole number, the answer needs to be rounded to 3. If the answer doesn't easily round to a whole number, it is likely that you have gone beyond the calculators working capacity.
An alternative method is to take the integer part of the first result (12564) and multiply it by 31 to get 389484, then subtract this from 389487, giving the answer of 3.

How to find remainder as a solution in CASIO fx991ES


Finding the remainder from a division calculation is often referred to as using the MOD function, though this isn't available directly on the fx-991ES.
To obtain the remainder, for example when dividing 10 by 7, you can only divide 7 into 10 once, leaving a remainder of 3.
For larger numbers, eg when dividing 389487 by 31 (equivalent to 389487MOD31) the division gives an answer of 12564.09677 (on the display), however you only want the fractional part so subtract 12564 to give 0.0967741935 . This includes the lower value digits that were previously hidden. Then multiply this result by 31 which gives 2.999999999 on the display. Since the result of a MOD or remainder calculation involving integers has to be a whole number, the answer needs to be rounded to 3. If the answer doesn't easily round to a whole number, it is likely that you have gone beyond the calculator's working capacity.
An alternative method which avoids the rounding of the fractional part is to take the integer part of the first result (12564) and multiply it by 31 to get 389484, then subtract this from 389487, giving the answer of 3.

How to find G.C.F. on a TI-30xIIs calculator?


I don't think there's specific key for this but you can do it this way:

  1. Divide those 2 numbers for which you want to find gcf
  2. If you get result as decimal number press keys [2nd][PRB] to display it as fraction
  3. Also if fraction you get is in form a b/c (ex. 1 2/3) you have to convert it to form d/c (for 1 2/3 that would be 5/3)
  4. Greatest common factor is then 1st number divided by numerator (or 2nd number divided by denominator)
For example:
  • You want to find greatest common factor of 30 and 18.
  • You divide them: you should get 5/3 (after converting result to fraction of form d/c, as described in steps 2 and 3).
  • This means that 30/18=5/3=5x/3x (x is gcf here).
  • Now you know that x=30/5=18/3=6 so greatest common factor is 6.

I hope this helps :)

When I divided a problem EX. 3/2 the calculator will not answer in decimal


Hi,
You are not dividing problems, you are dividing number. This said, there is a simple way to ensure that the results of divisions are displayed in decimal form: It consists in putting a decimal mark (decimal point) at the end one integer (whole number)
ex:
3/2. gives 1.5
3./2 gives 1.5
3./2. gives 1.5

You can also configure your calculator to display all numerical results in decimal format. To do that press [MODE][F2]. Use the down arrow to select the ligne Exact/Approx, then use the right arrow to unfold the menu options 1:Auto
2:Exact
3:Approximate
Select 3:Approximate and press [ENTER]
