Question about Toshiba Satellite M45-S331 Notebook

2 Answers

Toshiba Satellite M45 S331 PSM40U-01R001 will not power on

Normally when I push the power button it turns blue and then the computer boots up. Now the power button turns blue for about 5 seconds and I hear the fan start to work but then the computer just shuts off. There is no screen display, no evidence of bios startup. I have tried to start the computer with on AC power adapter with the battery removed, on battery only (no AC adapter), with both battery and AC adapter connected, after the battery has charged over night, with the hard drive removed, wireless card removed, RAM (on bottom side of motherboard) removed and DVD drive removed.

A technician said he thinks a chip on the motherboard is bad. Any ideas ? Does this laptop need the battery installed to work? And if so, could a bad battery cause this?

Toshiba Satellite M45-S331 willnot operate on


Hello,

You have replaced the battery and then it worked.
Try once with power draining (remove the battery and then press the power button for one minute and then again refix the battery) and check.

Thanks

Booting M45 without HD/CD drive?


Only if that laptop has the option of booting from external drives or media ... some newer computers can do that.

I would just get another CD drive (CD/DVD) for it and replace the hard drive and re-install it.

I don't think I've ever PXE booted either ... besides what's the point of laptop that you have to PXE boot - you can't take your network on the road with you?
