Question about Toshiba Satellite M45-S169 Notebook

1 Answer

Jumpy color changing screen with slow speed. Please HELP!

My Toshiba M45 laptop started to have problems a few weeks ago. It started to perform really slowly, and my music and all sound would come out broken and slow. I ran virus scans and adware scans, but nothing came up. Start up was incredibly slow as well (about 10 mins just to get to the Home screen). So, today while I was using it, I touched the screen to move it forward a bit and it started to spaz out and started jumping up and down and turning colors (mostly white). I tried restarting it, hoping that it would go away, but it doesnt. I just shut it down and it's been that way for a couple hours now. I'm not sure what else to do with this computer!

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

TOSHIBA SATELLITE M45-S165 won't charge Battery. The power connector on the back of this laptop is losse but still powers the Laptop. I bought a new battery and the Battery light does light up on the front...


it could be possible that changing the dc jack at the back may fix the problem however it could be a faulty new battery as ive had a few copies (not original) which would work for a week or so then die or others which wouldnt work at all, i finaly splashed out on a new original battery and it hasnt let me down and i bought it over a year ago.

Hope this helps

Mouse problem? m200


THe Problemis that the little membrane pad for the mouse is no making full contact. What you need to do, is open the case, and look where the mouse pad is, and see if it can be forced closer to the protective layer. If this does not solve the problem, you may have to send the laptop back to the manufacturer for them to fix.

Very..very slow ...


Hey,

I think there are lot of application that load at the time of startup and ecause of which your system is slow. To clean up startup items you can use MSCONFIG. this appoints you as a boss of your computer and you can select what programs should load and the ones that should be not allowed to load.

heres how you use this utility.
