Hiyya CM try going to the Device Manager in Control Panel open it up as in pic - it is the same as my main machine here.
Right click on update drivers
you will get a search for screen it will then search the net for the driver and give you the result.
If that doesn't work may need to go to the Toshiba site and download drivers from it. Just as I found out - with the Toshiba's I have had you will need to quote that model number on the machine as that dictates where the machine originated
My L550 Satellite is Part number : PSLWSA-01000Q which I think is the part number for my Australian laptop.
So you need to specify A300 and then that number on the sticker.
I know this now because I recently fixed a Toshy laptop for a friend and the part number turned out to be an American one and on questioning the friend had indeed bought it on Ebay from the US so making the download site specific to the US ones.
One other thing I also installed 7 on a previously Vista machine (A200) by adding a a new hard drive but it made no difference to the screen it was just dull so I am thinking perhaps the connections between the keyboard part and the screen may be getting near their use by date - hope not but it does pay to think of the very simplest things as well as I have fell into the trap of thinking the worst - as in some applications problems and when they have been purely mechanical, and sometimes easily fixed.
Let us know how you get on
