Question about Toshiba Satellite M45-S2692 Notebook
Yesterday I went to power up the computer and the sytem failed to boot. I tried to reboot several times, before I decided to tilt the laptop back while booting. Amazingly the system booted like normal. This morning ran into the same problem, so I plan on replacing the hard drive. How does one access the hard drive on this model for replacement?
Hiya. Why replace the hard drive? When you say your computer failed to boot - are you sure it wasn't booting? Maybe it did boot but your screen remained blank. It sounds more like a screen problem, quite likely the ribbon connection is loose or it could be damaged. Its a very common problem and tilting the screen moves the ribbon a fraction and it then makes the connection. Try switching on and if the screen is totally blank, no message at all, no flashing cursor then its the screen. If you wanted to be 110% sure, easiest way is to connect laptop to an external screen and test it that way. Hope this is helpful.
