Well it all depends on what bios it is.  If it is an pheonix bios or AMI bios then the 1-3-3-1 code stands for dram failure
If its an ibm bios it is a vga problem
if its a award bios it is a ram problem.
Easiest thing to check is your memory. Most of the time on laptops the memory gets jostled loose and you have to re seat it.  
Should be a removeable panel on the back, just pop it off and you will see the memory. Pull it out of its seat, then reseat it then try rebooting.
Hope this helped

The beeping you describe indicates Graphic gone bad. To make sure that it is a graphic issue, remove the memory and observe the beeping differ. If beeping differ it is make surely a graphic problem and need a new graphic Card. But if the beeping is still the same after removing a memory then it is defective memory!


Best Luck!

The laptop is not recognizing your extended RAM. Try removing one of your RAM sticks and restarting it. Replace and remove the other and restart it again. If it works with only one module installed, then those two cannot run together. If it will not work and you have only one in there then the RAM is bad.

M35X s111 won't boot


is the drive making any sounds, beeps, or sounds like clicking after revving up? Might need new hard drive, I had same laptop do the same thing, when it got to post, cursor of death= hard drive died. Also note that you need to replace it with a low GB drive, ATA or SATA not IDE. Try and get 80 - 120 gig if it does need replacing. For some reason I remember it wont run anything over 240G.
Good luck.

You need to go into the BIOS (setup) and reset to factory defaults first. This should clear up the issue.

This still sounds like a memory issues to me. Take out one of the memory sticks, reboot, and see what happens. If this solves the problem, then remove the memory stick and out the other one in. If the problem returns, you may have bad memory. basicallym what you should be checking is each stikc in each slot - to try to determine if the memory is good - if the slot is good - and if the memory is seated properly.

Will not boot


You can find an error code key but if all you want is the hard drive, why not follow these take apart directions.

It looks like it's a normal process: one screw on the bottom and then pulling the drive tray out. If you find that this isn't the case, you might have to take it apart to remove the hard drive. Drop another note here if that doesn't work.

I think the error code you are getting is a memory code. I'm supposing that you haven't tried replacing the memory because you would have mentioned that to save us the hassle of eliminating options you've already tried. I'd try reseating the memory first and then, if that doesn't work, try cleaning the memory chip connections with a pencil eraser to remove oxidization and dirt. Then, if that doesn't work, borrow, steal or beg a matching piece of memory. Sometimes satellites have one piece that you can access under the memory door (on the bottom of the machine) and another piece under the keyboard, so you'll have to look into that.

good lucks.

Remove the 1 gig chip. Pull you battery out and unplug the laptop. Hold the power button in for 10 seconds. Put the battery back in and plug the laptop back in again and try booting it up. This should reset the BIOS and allow it to boot. The beep codes you are talking about are a memory beep code and it is normally caused by adding memory or a loose memory stick. Also try pulling the existing memory and resetting it.

No power on


I believe that the syptoms you are experiencing include the power button lighting up during start up and the fan cycling for 5 seconds, but no other activity. There may or may not be a series of audible "beeps". A CD will come up to speed, but will not load. I have had this happen three times with my M35X-S111 due to it not being able to recognize the RAM. The first two times, I re-seated the RAM and it successfully booted. The third time, I reseated the RAM 50+ times with it only successfully booting once. The slot that holds the RAM cards does make a good electrical contact with the cards. Since the RAM holder is integral to a card, you cannot replace it with a "generic" holder, instead, you have to replace the entire card. I discarded my Toshiba after that third failure.
