Wireless network disconnecting

There should be a panel on the bottom of the laptop that you can access the wireless card from. I'd pull the card out and then reseat it back into the motherboard.

Should be pretty self-explanatory once you see it.

Let me know what happens.

Best of luck!

Laptop no power, power cord lights up

You should try unplugging the laptop from the power and taking out the battery. Then after about 30 seconds plug the battery back in and attempt to turn the computer back on.

Toshiba satellite m40 booting problem.

Hi! It appears that possibly your hrad drive isn't set properly in the caddy? with the laptop powered down and disconnected locate the hard drive cover pop out the two locating screws and carefully move the caddy/hard drive BEWARE as the drive has fragile pins at the opposite end where you opened, hopefully little sliding pressure should remove. Check the retaining screws around the caddy (You'll need a small torx/philips screw driver for this) if all tight replace gently.
If you are uncertain I would recommend a technician check it for you.
Good Luck!
