Re: Windows freezing in normal mode model toshiba m45 os...

First I would try blowing the fans out with canned air while the system is powered off.

Does Windows freeze during any actions in particular, or just random times? Have you tried restoring Windows from the Recovery CD? If not, I would definitely recommend it, but make sure you backup your data first.

When my m45-s331 laptop is turn on for a long time, if i put the monitor off, maybe in not be turn on again and it's brightness become very low and hardly it can be seen! what should i do?

if you're using win xp, try to check the power option.(click start, go to control panel & power management/power option).from there, you have an option to adjust your screen brightness settings everytime you wake up your system from sleep mode/hibernation mode.
other option, you can update your video driver. here's the link
then choose display driver. download and install it. It will update your video display driver. It might help to improve your brightness issue.
Good Luck,

get this from my shared drive(read instructions in there)

and wipe your disk clean (Warning...this process will make you lose all data on disk so be careful, if posible backup all critical data that you need)
once done install WinXP SP3(get a Windows XP cd from a friend or download a pirated copy from net) look for "WinXP SP3 piratebay" in google

when installing WinXP make more than 2 partitions (C, D, E)
Install WinXP in C
once done, let Windows boot and show Desktop
install WinVista or Win7 in D
use E for saving your critical data

Can't access laptop computer in safe mode, keyboard freeze up

Try booting your system from a LIVE cd like linux, a verson of Hiren's tools, or the UBCD (ultimate boot disc for windows). If your keyboard still freezes with the alternate OS, you may have a hardware malfunction.

Laptop 'freezes' after about half an hour of operation

Is the hard drive making a clacking noise, and/or does the mouse freeze only once or freeze and unfreeze a few times before dying completely?
