Re: toshiba satellite m40x

Do you hear the fan come on? Do you hear the hard drive spin up or notice the hard drive light come on? I relaize it may be a short spurt.

Reset switch of toshiba satellite M35x

I would definitely Try booting in safe mode to see if it at least loads up the basic system. If it does this then you need to explore what it is that you last installed or did. Hopefully you had a restore point set up but even if not it still is not the end of the world.

But the answer to your question is to press <ctrl> <alt> and <del> all at the same time and this should reboot the system. If it does not you have no choice but to use the power button. If when you push the power button the system doesn't turn off you need to hold it in until the system shuts down. The system will shut down it takes a few seconds (may seem long but it isn't )
When you push the power button and turn the system on start pushing <f8> right at the load screen (you can go ahead and just keep tapping it all the way from the time you turn on the power until it loads the alternative options screen). At the screen select safe mode and see where that gets you.

Good Luck

Toshiba equium m40x won't power up

whats happening is that the cpu is overheating and shutting down the computer due to your fan not spinning, if you wish to test this remove the bottom panel and remove the fan and its cooling tubes should all be one part (quite easy 3 or 4 bolts) and blow on the cpu or put a pedistal fan facing it or any other form of cooling that wont damage it, and try to start it if it boots for a while it is the fan and you will need to replace it, i had this exact problem yesterday

M40x sometimes freez on logo

Sometimes viruses can trigger slow start ups. Try running your virus scan. also, you should make sure that your memory is working correctly. When you have a memory stick that has failed, its hard to tell if you have over 2 gigs of mem installed but, when you start it up, it will struggle during the process.
