Question about Toshiba Satellite (K000004080) Motherboard

Open Question

I have a toshiba satellite M70 and when i get into windows, and the laptop just freezes. Then the screen will go black and the laptop will sound like it is doing something but nothing happens. Its not the hard drive because i have tested a different hard drive in the laptop and this is just the same. It doesnt always get to windows before the computer locks. sometimes it locks booting through bios. Most of the time i cant get into safe mode, which makes me think that the motherboard has a fault. Also sometimes when i turn the laptop on, it beeps 3 times and then goes dead. Thanks

SOURCE: Toshiba screen wont turn on

Ok folks, not to sure if anyone is following this, However, I posted a problem a week or so ago, and this is an update to that problem. in Regards to my Toshiba M35x-S161 problem with the screen not coming on nor booting up. This is an update and may not be the same for all of you concerned.
I have checked the ram memory and found that to be working, and as mentioned was able to access the hard drive using a caddy to see that it is intact. However, shortly after doing so (I had copied pictures to a thumb nail for my sister), I began to experience a slowdown on my IBM laptop. It suddenly hit me, VIRUS. I scanned the IBM through Housecall, and what ever was affecting it caused house call to shut down 3 times, but did finally clean it. I pulled the Toshiba's hard drive stuck it into the Caddy and ran a scan on it using AVG and yet another IBM that is clean. After a slow scan there it was, not 1, not 2, but 3 Trojan virus plus 2 down loaders and a few other goodies. With the now cleaned Hard drive, I tried booting the Toshiba, and at first I still experienced the same problem, then a funny thing happened. I laid the laptop down an hit the side of it and poof here came the boot up. Unfortunately, it wouldn't go all the way, but enough to tell me that 'MOST LIKELY' the Virus halted the computer operation but killing the boot sector, and secondly, because it was stalled out in the boot up, it over heated, and "may have" loosened a solder connection on or near the switch or the power connector. I haven't had the time to take the unit apart yet, but plan to as soon as I can get a couple of days off.
I don't know how many of you this may help out, but at least this forum gives me a place to post my progress... will keep you updated as I can..

Open the back panels, blow out EVERYTHING and remove and re-insert everything. You could just have dirty contacts somewhere. The dust from the fans also travels around inside the computer.

My laptop (Toshiba Satellite Pro M70) freezes (a times, it gives a blue screen error) when I move it [or adjust its position]. Changed the Hard disk but the problem still persists.


There's no M70 model, so I'm assuming you're talking abut a Satellite Pro M10, M15 series laptop. If the slightest movement hangs it or causes BSOD, then my guess is ... well ... I'll let you have it: the weaknesses of this models are: (1) bad memory socket (the upper socket),or (2) bad sound card socket. The one that's easiest to access is the upper memory socket - remove the installed memory from that socket, and see if your machine will still hang or blue-screen. I don't know if anyone still fixes these sockets (I do), but you can get around it by installing a larger capacity memory into the lower socket and skipping the upper socket altogether.

Toshiba Satellite M70 FN key lock


Hello,
See if F10 or F11 are lit. If so press Fn and the key that has a light below it to deactivate it.
If you cannot login, use a USB keyboard to bypass that hurdle and run Windows to reconfigure.

Hope it helps.

Attempt to rebuild windows...
This sounds like hard drive issue - sometimes a rebuild will temporarily get around this - but I would strongly recommend once running to do a surface / scan disk...
