Question about Toshiba Satellite M45-S169 Notebook

1 Answer

Freezes exactly where it is. Apply pressure to palm areas and it continues?

It wil start up ok then stops where it is. Screen stops exactly whre it was. If you apply pressure to left side of mouse pad it will pick up exactly whre it was. A few seconds later it stops. I can actually take out the hard drive and the screen stays. I put the hard drive back on and apply pressure and it picks right up like it never knew the hard drive was gone. I have taken the mother board out and looked very close with magnifying glass to see any crack or anything. I don't understand that if there is a short or something, it should shut computer off or something. If I apply alot of pressure, the computer will run fine. I have heard that it could be a cracked motherboard, but if that is case, shouldn't the system crash?

    I lay it flat and when it stops, you can see the hard drive light go off, etc... just freezes in place. If I push stright down with some pressure just to the left of the mouse pad it picks up right where it left off. right under the area where I push is some smaller square processor looking thing and I have looked very closely with strong magnifying glass and it is connected. I have gone over that portion of the motherboard veryclosely and I don't see any solder breaks. I just don't understand. I would even go as far as take a video of what i'm doing and send it via email to someone if they think they can help.

You must have a melted contact. Try to identify in the zone you apply pressure (or in the far angle of the M/B that should rise while you push the mouse pad - tension) and see if there's a "free" contact...Try it opening the cover and letting the pc work...see what the pressure modifies....it's weird though!

I have a Scotsman CME 506 ice maker. After running a cleaning cycle it won't run. After resetting the freeze light blinks and nothing happens. The water inlet valve never opens (the sump is current


CM3 Operational Sequence.
From Off, push and release the freeze button.
1. If sump is full,water pump starts.If sump is not full,water valve opens to fill it.
2. Compressor starts when sump is full.Air cooled fan motor starts too.
3. water pump stops early in freeze cycle for 30 seconds.
4. Sump refills after pump starts.
5. In low ambient condition,fan motor may begin to cycle on and off.
6. Freeze continues until water level in sump drops to preset point. Exceptions: SCE275 must fill sump two more times.
7. Fan may shut off before the end of freeze.
8. Harvest begins. Hot gas valve opens,pump stops.
9. Pump restarts, inlet water valve opens to fill and overflow the reservoir.
10. Harvest continues for preset first cycle harvest time.
11. If bin is not full, cycle repeats ( compressor stays on). If bin is full, unit shuts off at the end of harvest.
OK with that out of the way unless you unplugged any wires cleaning the machine should not have caused any problems. First cut off water and pull water supply line from water inlet valve look in the end of valve there is a screen in there it could be stopped up. If the valve screen is not stopped up then put supply water line back on and turn water back on. power the CM3 controller off. push freeze button. now with a voltage meter check at the water inlet valve to make sure you are getting power to the valve.If you are then either valve is stopped up or valve is bad. If you are not getting power to valve then replace the CM3 controller now make sure the bin full light is not on because if it is this will not let controller go back to a freeze cycle.

My palm treo pro keeps freezing lately, when i would start writing a text and press the space bar in the 3rd time i would punch it, it will completely go to the menu screen and i canoot hear music or go to...


Most likely, a program that you have installed is causing your Palm to freeze up. If you remember installing a program when the freezing started, delete the program and check if it keeps freezing.

2005 f250 V10 gas super duty. Cranks but does not start in cold weather. Truck is from warm weather area now in freezing weather for first time. No pressure from fuel pump. Pump changed, same problem.


Ok you have no pressure from fuel pump to the injectors and you replaced the pump. Sounds as if you need to check or replace the relays which send the signal from your ignition switch to your fuel pump to engage/shutoff. Warm weather area sorry doesn't really apply unless you're in an older carburated vehicle

Check if your system has a wifi switch and if it's turned on. Press Fn+F3 to enable your wireless inside windows.

If all else failed, you have to replace your wireless card.
