Question about Toshiba Satellite M45-S265 Notebook

1 Answer

Random screen freeze


I have Toshiba Satellite M45-S265 and has it running almost 3 years now.

The system boots fine and the LCD screen works fine, but the system will freeze randomly, but just moving the LCD screen back and forward a while, the system will come back to working mode again.

I have tried to use the external monitor and switch to external monitor does not seem to isolate the problem. I also disable the LCD panel hardware to use the external monitor alone and it still freeze for time to time.

Any help or tips will be appreciated.

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

Black screen

Shine a torch into the monitor and see if the system has booted up, if so the back lighting is faulty and would advise a qualified notebook repairer.
