When my m45-s331 laptop is turn on for a long time, if i put the monitor off, maybe in not be turn on again and it's brightness become very low and hardly it can be seen! what should i do?


if you're using win xp, try to check the power option.(click start, go to control panel & power management/power option).from there, you have an option to adjust your screen brightness settings everytime you wake up your system from sleep mode/hibernation mode.
other option, you can update your video driver. here's the link http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=DL&os=&category=&moid=882862&rpn=PSM40U&modelFilter=M45-S331&selCategory=2756709&selFamily=1073768663
then choose display driver. download and install it. It will update your video display driver. It might help to improve your brightness issue.
Good Luck,
Ryan

Toshiba A215-S4767 will not start up correctly.


First off, Windows just didn't like the way the computer shut off, I would just restart normally and see what happens. Next when it boots up and you get into windows, Go to the control panel > Power Options > go to the hibernation tab and make sure hibernation is unchecked. Next go the setting that reads "shutting the lid". You want to open this setting with a drop down list and pick "Do Nothing", this will keep the laptop from entering standby mode just for shutting the lid. Laptops do not like hibernation or standby modes....windows hates it and will give you all kinds of problems if you continue to use it.

Hi,
go to control panel,power options,
change your power settings
stop Hibernation,
" choose what to do when I hit the power button" etc....

Hibernation causes problems with startups

Don't use hibernation, use standby,sleep
or turn it off completly
should cure the problem

Regards
Richard.

Computer does not stay in hibernation or standby mode


That happen because on the stand by or hibernate setting the time was setting in 5 minutes.
Go to Control Panel >> Display >> Screen Saver >> Power

And set the time right there as your preferences.
