The screen is not working on my son's Toshiba laptop. A new screen costs $900 so want to check connections first but can't get into the computer. All the screws are out and the top and bottom side are apart but the sides are tight and I don't want to force it. Where can i find instructions on how to do it? It is probably a few years old.

What is the exact model ?

Start the unit
Take a flashlight ["torch" if you're in the UK] & shine it on the screen.
If you can see the desktop the power inverter or backlight has failed,

If you see no image it should have a place to hook an external "regular" monitor to it.
Hook one to it & see if it works.
If you get no image either the motherboard or video adapter has failed.
[If it doesn't hyave a removable video card the motherboard will have to be replaced ]
