Question about Toshiba Satellite M45-S165 Notebook

1 Answer

I had a virus on my Toshiba Satellite M45-S165 PC notebook. I had Webroot spy an virus protection. I did multiple full scans and it did not remove the virus. I then noticed that there was a newer version available and so I updated my software, and ran a full scan. This time when my computer restarted it went to the windows xp welcome page, so I logged in and it loaded for a couple of seconds and automaticly loggs its self out and so then I could no longer get into my system. I ordered a toshiba recovery disk for my model and ran it and it did nothing for me. I bought a bigger hard drive and installed it, and ran the disk to set up the new hard drive, and now on the MSDOS it says it has Windows 98 and take me to a C: prompt and I do not have a command or file name. I do not have a microsoft disk since I bought the computer with it loaded and did not receive a disk. Can you help me on my options? I would like to have vista hear in the future. Thanks a million Ruben

If you would like to have Vista, then I suggest going to Walmart or Bestbuy and buying Vista. Research the different types of Vista to see which is right for you. With the Vista disc you won't have this problem with the install. At this point I don't believe you can go any further unless you have an operating system disc and you don't really want to run 98. You've already got the new hard drive, you might as well do it right with what you want.

I want to connect my Cassatt Tape Recorder to Toshiba Satellite M45-S165 Laptop and record data by using Audacity Software. Recommend the connection cable


I have never used that programme but expect it uses the sound card as an interface. If it does, the manual will tell you, you will need a Phono lead with 3.5mm jack plug on one end.
Hope that helps.

Where is the cmos battery in a toshiba m45 s165. I have looked for the red and black leads and don't see them. I really didn't want to completely disassemble until it's the last resort.


Yes silverdragon is right. I just disassembled my m45 to replace the cmos. It appears to be soldered. There are no red and black wires though. You must disassemble.

You didn't mentioned which two wires you have problem with, so i found detailed Toshiba Satellite M45 dismantling instructions.
Just scroll down (then page2, page3. ...) and find your wires and what to do with them.
