Question about Toshiba Satellite M45-S169 Notebook

Open Question

No power at all to laptop

Hello, I have a Toshiba Satellite M45-S331 laptop which is a few years old. One day I was listening to music and went to touch the mouse pad, and the whole thing just died. No power when it is plugged in, no lights come on, no lights when only on battery power. I removed the hard drive and attached it to another computer and all my data is still there. Is this a motherboard problem or did I short circuit something? Any advice on how it happened, and how I can fix it would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in Advance, Damian

Toshiba Satellite M45 S331 Use to power all the time.When we went to install old hard drive to load Windows Xp.It went to screen to start set,then it shut Down.It will Not Power up,Why?

remove eh hard disk and see if the laptop boots up at least to bios settings ..If it does ..I suggest to reinstall the computer but first go to bios and change the ahci mode for hdd into ide compatible or native ..and save changes..This will eliminate the need for 3rd party drivers and will install proper..
No matter what you have on the disk can not do this right the way ...It need s the operation system in order to work and make damages..and if you wipe it out it will not be there anymore. (in case of a virus) ..
I suggest to use a disk to install and not the old recovery ..
let me know how it works and what it does..and I will further advice in this matter

Toshiba Satellite M45-S331 willnot operate on


You have replaced the battery and then it worked.
Try once with power draining (remove the battery and then press the power button for one minute and then again refix the battery) and check.

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.
