I get a blue screen and cant log on reboots

I'm not an expert but I have had plenty of experiance with computer problems. When my Gateway had the same problem I took it to the Geek Squad (Best Buy). They called it the blue screen of death L.O.L! They said that it means the hard drive blew. I had a warrenty, but if I wouldn't have I was qouted a price of $159.99 to put in the new drive, plus extra charges to reprogram it if I didn't already have a back-up disc. I hope I'm wrong. Goodluck!

My toshiba M45 takes several times to turn on,

what is your operating system? if you're familiar of what you're using, then it might be a hardware issue, please be specific,
if you're using windows, try running your OS to safe mode by turning it on and pressing F8 after bios load, it might be your Operating System is corrupted...

I went from XP Home Edition to Vista Ultimate.

You need to go to the Toshiba website for your location at this location: and select "Download" then type "M45-S331" into the search box. I would suggest you download all the drivers for Vista and install them. Good fortune to you.

Toshiba M45-S331, Black screen

I just went through all this myself. First I had the inverter replaced ($200) and it worked great for a week, then the screen went out again. It turned out that the LCD needed replaced ($200 more, labor comped from the first no-fix). There's a problem with the Toshiba LCDs that makes them burn out sooner than other brands. Since the replaced screen, no problems (2 months). Sucks, I know.
