Re: toshiba satellite goes dead
Assuming this is not hibernating and your harddrive is not set to shutdown after a certain idle time, it could be this is an overheating problem.
Check that the extraction vents are'nt blocked and that the fan area is well ventillated.
If necassary gently hoover around all ventillation slats.
Some laptops have the ability for the user to turn off the fan for certain usage, just check in your management settings that it's turned on, unless you know it is on' and it cuts in or stays on.

on the back of the LCD is a cable that goes from there to the Motherboard. Try reseating that cable on both ends. If that doesn't fix it then it has to be a problem with either the screen or the cable behind the screen.
Perhaps this can help... I have the solution for the non booting Toshiba that I wrote almost a year ago. This tutorial (written and pics from the repair of my m35) is applicable to laptops that shut down without any warning, laptops that turn on only sometimes, and laptops that simply refuse to turn on (LEDs blink, fan spins up for a second and then everything just goes dead). So if your laptop does not turn on, it goes completely dead within a few minutes after bootup, here's the link to the tutorial. The repair takes about an hour, there's no need of replacing any parts, reinstalling any software or any other thing. The only investment in repairing your laptop with this tutorial is your time. Basically, you can repair your laptop within the hour, without spending any money for any parts or software. http://imateski.blogspot.com/2008/08/toshiba-satellite-m35x-motherboard.html
The problem may be with the receptical where your plug the ac adapter into. This is a common problem for many. Our company can repair this problem. For a quote just google "Laptop Guy" and you will see our company listed there. Mention Fixya and you can save $25 off the repair
if the screen flickers and goes white, it could be your lcd screen (the board on the lcd) or the lcd cable. i would suggest replacing the cheapiest which would be the lcd cable. You could also use the laptop externally and use it that way. Or just get a HDD caddy and change the securities and youll be able to get your info on any other laptop.
Hi. According to the user manual, the Fn + Esc (key)displays the screen brightness pop-up window which are: super bright; bright and semi bright.
