    Thankyou but yes did all this seems tobe that the unit makes a noise from HDD then goes quiet and no more action, hence having the HDD checked and the RAM

Blue screen means no signal or data to be displayed. Needs good cpu to display blue screen. Use a Linux livecd to test the motherboard, then reinstall operating system on hdd.

    If you have pci/isa bus, you can use a post diagnostic card to see what went wrong. Cheapest is $4.95 plus shipping from ebay.

Sub out your ram memory one at a time and test each, if no! the hard drive is probably the issue, try a CD installation disc if available, if no change! the hardware should be tested.

Hi I bought a Toshiba Satellite M300 PSMD4L-01W004 in 2008 but only started using it regularly in 2009. The screen turns black like the light goes out when I open the display at more than a right angle...

the connector is the most obvious place to start,During the 90's this really was the achillies heel for most laptop manufacturer,this was probably in the top 5 complaint at repair shacks.
technology has made things somewhat better but some models still have faults in this area,that and the fact when dropped this the hinge area come under considerable stress/fractures

Fedders Y Chassis Quit Running

Bummer. I bought an AEY08F2G that put out no warm air and very little cool air. Fedders filed chapter 11 in August. They do not honor warranties now, and apparently offer no repair service. I was fortunate that I bought mine from Venting Direct, and the unit was still within the 60 defective return period. They told me that Fedders units are junk. They provided full credit for the unit (plus shipping costs) without requiring that the unit be returned to them. My advice is to toss it. Live and learn.
