Laptop freeze up and shutdown by itself, then can't boot up after

I got a Toshiba Satellite M45 S265, it ran okay until it freezes up on me and then shut down by itself. After that it can't boot up anymore. I think its bad RAM or bad CPU or even the motherboard, or other thing that i might not know. Well I was wondering how do you test for a bad CPU or bad motherboard. Please help!!

Thanks in advance

Re: laptop freeze up and shutdown by itself, then can't...

If it is still under warranty, you'd save yourself a lot of time and money if you just send it in for repair. If it isn't, the way to test if the RAM is bad is by trying to use the stick in another laptop or by trying to replace the RAM you currently have with RAM that you know is working (has worked on another computer). If the problem is with the motherboard or CPU, for most people it's better to just sell the laptop AS-IS with a good description on eBay and buy a new laptop.

Trying to reinstall windows from the hard drive on toshiba m45 s265 but it asks for admin password to enter the recovery

that is usual(admin password) do you not have it?

also a frozen computer usually means that there is an issue with the reload or restore function

methinks you would do better to load operating system from restoral disk in cd reader

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
