View Full Version : [ubuntu] Toshiba Satellite Monitor turns on later

since a couple of month my Toshiba Satellite SM51 Laptop has fellowing problem with the monitor.

If I start the laptop after it has been off for a long time (over night, a couple of hours) everything works fine!

But if I do a reboot, the screen doesn´t have any light in the beginning for about 1-5 minutes. If I shut down the laptop and a few moments later power it on again, its the same problem. I can log in and everything is booting, but the screen light lasts a couple of minutes to turn on. If it is finally on, it stays on. (only reboot, shutdown and a few moments later power on again causes this problem)

I was thinking that maybe the graficscard gets too hot, because if I wait 5-10 minutes to power on after a shutdown it works fine. Could it be?
