Had something like that happen to one of my laptops too.
It was the interconnecting cable going through the hinges (usually) that connects the mobo to the screen.
Maybe yours is worn too after all this time, opening and closing...

It was a hell to replace, btw... :-(

yes, the culprit is the cable running to the display.

i already ordered a replacement cable and i'll change it out as soon as it arrives in the mail, until then though, i gotta put-up with the display turning white almost constantly like this.

also this is not the first time my laptop suffered from a display cable failure, it actually happened about 3 times before this!

the first two times was when the laptop was still under warranty, which was then fixed under warranty. and the next failure occurred in 2015 and i replaced the cable in the laptop, i had to completely dismantle my laptop in order to do it.

Good thing my laptop is really easy to disassemble because i got to do it again, and for the last time!

So if anything else breaks on my laptop after this, i will officially declare it "TOTALED".

@PsychoPappy 4 : Hope it works out! Wring the last bit of life out of it! :-)

@Kate : Nice laptop! AMD Ryzen. Going to be my (and my son's) next CPU too. Just waiting for the 3rd generation to hit the stores during this/next month...

My Current Laptop is a Toshiba Satellite L755-S5355

it is 7¾ years old, manufactured in September of 2011, and was brought home from the store on 02 Dec 2011.

over the years, i upgraded the CPU, the RAM, the HDD, and the Optical drive!

  • CPU was upgraded to an Intel Core i7-2760QM ( this is a quad-core processor! )
  • RAM was upgraded to 8GB (4GBx2) Samsung PC3-12800 DDR3L 1600mhz SODIMM Memory.
  • HDD was upgraded to a Samsung 860 EVO 500GB SSD.
  • ODD was upgraded to a Panasonic Matshita UJ272 9.5mm 6X BDXL Blu-ray Burner.

i'm looking at getting an ASUS or an MSI Gaming laptop sometime between 12 and 18 months from now.

my target price-range is $950.00 - $1,500, (Price is in US Dollars)

in the meantime, i'm gonna try to keep this laptop alive.

Just wondering...

There is an 10W TDP gap between those 2 CPU's you had in there.
The B950 (35W) and the i7-2760QM (45W) would mean almost 29% more strain on the CPU power section and it's cooling.
Did you address this when upgrading?

Yes

My laptop's power adapter supports 60W, so it can supply the juice.

as for heat, my laptop does run a little hotter but not horrible. i replaced the thermal paste with arctic silver 5.

so i have it as good as i can possibly make it.
