    Yes the intro screen: It reads

    "in touch with tomorrow

    TOSHIBA

    In the bottom right it has the logo for intel and show celeron processor.

    Usually it gets past this screen and boots up. That is not the case. It stops here.

    No other noises, etc.

    Hello mpowers,

    Could you tell me a little more. when you say "intro screen" I take it that you mean the logo?

    Does ANYTHING elae print or appear on the screen?
    Is there ANY noise, beep, tune etc that comes from the computer?
    Do all the lights light up on the keyboard?

Thanks for that.

Ok the onlything that springs to mind is:

1. The bios needs to be reset asit has lost settings. This could happen IF you have installedsomething OR if it has become corrupt. Just access your Biosand reload the standard default settings.

2. Your hard drivehas a fault. The best thing you can do is to boot up from youremergency floppy (if you made one) or from your original windows CD. Once done, simply run scandisk/chkdisk/defrag and let it do what itneeds.

Sorry I could not help you more, but that is the onlything I can think of that would be stopping you booting further. Personally it sounds like the bios has lost settings and may betrying to boot from another drive ... but of cause it may be thatyour hard drive has become "sticky" or has errors that arecausing the problems.

Good luck with it.

I have a Toshiba Satellite M45-S359, Power Supply Problem.


It could be the motherboard as it is what is powered initially and distributes power to all other parts.
such a problem can only be diagnosed by checking physically but if you are asking whether a motherboard can be the cause, then yes it can

Internal Hard Disk Upgrade


Yes, there is. Match the type of drive (Serial ATA or Parallel ATA) you get with what you have. Make sure your Satellite sees the drive in the BIOS. For drives larger than 120 GB, recommend operating systems Windows XP (Service Pack 2 or higher) or Vista. Older OS's have a 137 GB limitation (they only see the first 137 GB of the hard drive despite its size).
