My toshiba satellite M645-S4045 doesn't want load up the system! How can I turn it on in the safe mode?

To access safe mode in Windows: From a completely powered down state, turn on the computer. At the Toshiba splash screen, start tapping the F8 key (top row of your keyboard). This will load a menu selection that has safe mode. Use the arrow key to highlight safe mode and then hit return. A mess of text will load on the screen and then a few moments later the computer should ask you to confirm you want safe mode.

I hope this helps

Toshiba a135- screen is temperamental. sometimes it works other times it doesn't. now would that be a problem with the lcd cable or the lcd inverter?

It is often a cracked cable, or a loose cable, the inverter tends to fail quickly either with no warning or flicking, and flickering then failing. Sometimes if the Video card, is in a mini PCI slot it may need to be reseated. Often though it is the LCD itself, as the Driver Row/Column drivers pack up, this is evidenced by lines, dots colors, spreading across and down the rows and columns.

Red, green, and blue rectangular "chads" or squares across top of screen

Hi there, this is easy thing to fix. Its LDV cable. This is the Cable which goes from the main board on to the screen. Un plug the cable from the screen side., then push the cable back. Make sure cable sits in .

This will sort all the problems with the picture,i.e colour problem , picutre squring up and many more things.
