I would suggest draining the residule electricity from the system and then try switching it on again.  Follow these steps:

  1. Unplug from any power source.
  2. Remove the battery (you will have to flip the laptop upside down and find the lock button that holds the battery in before you can slide it out).
  3. With the battery removed and the power disconnected, tap the power button on the laptop.  Nothing will appear to happen, but in actual fact any residual electricity that has built up across the motherboard will drain.
  4. Plug back in and try switching on again.  If it works, plug the battery in and you're back in business.
If the system still does not work after this, take it in to a repair shop or call your laptop's support service to get more advice, as it could be the motherboard.

My toshiba Satellite M45-S265 freezes up


  • Hi, this freezing of the Computer all of a sudden can be the cause of a number of things; first have you "downloaded any new Software, Toolbars, or changed any Programs? Next check to see "How much Memory is available to you." Go to and open the Computer Properties, if there is (more Used Space than there is Free Space) than "I suggest you do a [Disk Clean-Up] from the same location. Next, when was the "Last time you preform a "Defragmentation of the files, this can slow down the Computer's performance aswell." Backing up your Data and Files is another way to free-up space; this can be perform by (Sheduling Tasks), go to the "Control Panel.' for this task. If any of these things do not apply, then the next thing I suggest is to "perform a System Restore," this will restore your computer hopefully, back to a Time or Date prior to the problem beginning. The [System Restore] can be performed from the Control Panel. "If this information to a solution was of help, rating it is appreciated, thanks

It has problems getting it to turn on.. and when it does turn on, it suddenly turns off by itself after 10 to 15 minutes


It could be overheating (due to the failure of a fan inside the laptop) causing the computer to "self-protect" by shutting itself down.

Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Remove the battery.
Purchase a can of compressed air.
Use the air to give a "blow-job" into every air-port in the laptop -- a layer of dust will act as a layer of insulation, preventing the computer from radiating the build-up of heat.

When you turn the computer on, listen for the fan(s) to start running -- put the hairs on your arm near an "exhaust-port" on the PC, to feel if the fans are blowing air out of the laptop.

Toshiba Satellite M45-S351 BIOS password needs help!


BIOS passwords on Toshiba notebooks have to be reset by an authorized service technician who has the CD available to run the utility.  Their notebooks don't contain a battery reset to erase the password.  It was done as a safety feature to prevent theft from happening and it is a very good one.
If you take it into Best Buy or a computer dealer to get it done, you might have to prove that you are the new owner of the computer before it can happen.

Probably a broken power jack inside the machine - really common problem on laptops. You can expect $100-$180 to fix depending on where you take it.

Get a recommendation from someone if you go to a local place - lots of shoddy shops are around,

Laptop freeze up and shutdown by itself, then can't boot up after


If it is still under warranty, you'd save yourself a lot of time and money if you just send it in for repair. If it isn't, the way to test if the RAM is bad is by trying to use the stick in another laptop or by trying to replace the RAM you currently have with RAM that you know is working (has worked on another computer). If the problem is with the motherboard or CPU, for most people it's better to just sell the laptop AS-IS with a good description on eBay and buy a new laptop.
