Default Screen Won't Come On??

Okay, this has happened more than once.

I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro 6100, the screen goes out. The boot lights come on, but the screen won't. I got it fixed a couple of times, but it keeps going out. Now, the lights don't stay on and the AC light blinks in and out and it won't even boot at all. Can I just put in another hard drive?

I took it to a toshiba repair center, so they fixed it. I have AC power supply 15v. Battery is Ni-Cad, Nickel Hydride and/or Lithium Ion.

sadly enough, I can't remember, I remember them saying that something was loose. The Power light blinks 8 times steadying at blinks #2,5 & 8.

well if you feel you are up to it you can always open the case up and secure everything tightly. I dont a new hard drive would solve anything.

You could just call them back about it; if they came and fixed it and it didn't do it its their fault anyway.
