Question about Toshiba Satellite P30 P35 Series Notebook

1 Answer

Random Shutdown Lately I find my laptop (a Toshiba Satellite M45-S265) shutting down at random. Sometimes when I am just looking at things online (like text), and other times when I am online chatting or viewing video. I think it has also shut down when I was working on a document. I don't think it's caused by overheating, since I use a fan on my laptop, and I'm not sure if defragmenting will work on it, either.

Toshiba's are notorious dust collectors, try blowing back through the air vents and some clever use of the vacuum cleaner on the intakes can bring it back to life. also check the RAM for dust and dirt on the pins and clean as required. USE ANTI-STATIC Precautions!

My toshiba Satellite M45-S265 freezes up


  • Hi, this freezing of the Computer all of a sudden can be the cause of a number of things; first have you "downloaded any new Software, Toolbars, or changed any Programs? Next check to see "How much Memory is available to you." Go to and open the Computer Properties, if there is (more Used Space than there is Free Space) than "I suggest you do a [Disk Clean-Up] from the same location. Next, when was the "Last time you preform a "Defragmentation of the files, this can slow down the Computer's performance aswell." Backing up your Data and Files is another way to free-up space; this can be perform by (Sheduling Tasks), go to the "Control Panel.' for this task. If any of these things do not apply, then the next thing I suggest is to "perform a System Restore," this will restore your computer hopefully, back to a Time or Date prior to the problem beginning. The [System Restore] can be performed from the Control Panel. "If this information to a solution was of help, rating it is appreciated, thanks

Toshiba Satellite shuts-down by itself in about 1 minute


Could be hardware or software problems, IF its hardware issue the only problem makes this if the Cpu fan doesnot work, so the Cpu gets hot and then it shutdown in order not to be damaged. but mostly its software issue that remeber if you installed any program before this is happen, and try to stop shutdown by this command, if you did this and this stop shutting down your laptop this is absolutley software problems or programs conflict:
hit Start, then Run , then type this : shutdown -a
this will stop your shutdown if it works, try to uninstall the last programs causes this issue,if it doesnot let you use safe mode command.

Need instruction "HOW TO" install DVD-ROM multi function drive inToshiba Satellite M45-S265 PC Notebook


Unfortunately I was unable to find a step by step guide for you, however I found a picture of the backside of your laptop. There should be only one screw to remove the cd rom drive located where the red arrow is pointing;

Simply remove that screw and pull out the drive :-)

Laptop router interface


Hi,

Assuming that it is a laptop issue, pls verify that in your Device Manager,/Wireless Adapter/Properties/ that:
1. Advanced - All Property Setting should be "Not Present" except for the Authentication if you use WEP or security key;
2. Power Management - uncheck "Allow Computer to turn off..."

Pls log down your current settings before changing so as to have a restore basis if things don't work out.

There might also be some other settings such as transmit power that could be changed to "always high" or something like that.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Laptop freeze up and shutdown by itself, then can't boot up after


If it is still under warranty, you'd save yourself a lot of time and money if you just send it in for repair. If it isn't, the way to test if the RAM is bad is by trying to use the stick in another laptop or by trying to replace the RAM you currently have with RAM that you know is working (has worked on another computer). If the problem is with the motherboard or CPU, for most people it's better to just sell the laptop AS-IS with a good description on eBay and buy a new laptop.
