I suggest to forget about diagnoses and just reinstall the operation system again from scratch ..using a boot-able disk or flash usb ..and clean the hard drive completely .. At least the C drive ...just format it during installing ..This will make it work if it is nothing physically wrong .
The modem is probably just disabled or missing drivers..or blocked..I see no reason to be affected ..reinstalling a clean os ..will fix it too ..
I suggest to use just the programs you really need ..and get read of all tools from Toshiba ..and use a more reliable security Microsoft essentials one ..Its free and not invasive ..and Im really satisfied so far with it ..
If you run windows xp will ask you to update a few things before let you install it ..Just click on the suggestion and download those fixes..

When i was booting up the computer..It just died out and never came back on.

Check your battery and ac adapter before going too far into the technical side of the laptop.
Toshiba use what is known as Power On Self Test. (Most do actually), it runs a programme before the BIOS starts and checks the periferals, keyboard, screen DVD etc.
The lights should at least flash at that point.
You may have faulty memory or a system error.
Please let me know what you find.
Hope this helps.

Crash dump blue screen

If warranty - call it in. Otherwise it sounds like a classic case of bad ram. Find a friend with similar ram in his/her laptop and do a test swap to see if symptoms repeat. Then replace the ram. Far more common in HP's then Toshiba, but it happens for no reason. Basically it's a page in or out error with the ram causing windows to "freak out".
You can get a good selection of ram from or

There are any number of Toshibe motherboard sources on the Internet and if you are comfortable with E-Bay they had a number of M45 boards listed, looks like from about $190 and up. Did you post here in anticipation of someone having a board to sell you? If so E-Bay can handle that much better I would think since I'd have to be a seller with exactly what you want, happen upon your question and we make a deal. Could happen but not likely on a trouble shooting sight. Sorry wish I could help.
