Do you hear the cd/dvd working? Is the machine booting to the cd? If so, boot using the WINXP cd. When it comes to the install screen say yes to a new install, it will ask you to accept the license, press F8. XP will then check for previous versions of windows already installed. If it finds one, select "R" to repair the existing copies of XP. You may need to reactivate your copy of windows and redo any updates but thats no big deal. Now if none of that works try the following: Can you access the start options menu when the machine boots by pressing the F8 key as the first toshiba screen is shown keep pressing F8 until a screen appears that shows: Safe Mode Safe Mode w/ Networking Safe Mode Command Prompt disable auto restart and some other entries Choose safe mode with command prompt. it will look like an old ms/dos window. type CHKDSK /R Send me any error messeges you have received or any other info you think may help. Let me (again) know what happens. Good Luck, Tim

Where is the mic on a toshiba satellite M35-S351

From all of the documentation that I can find, it appears that it has no built-in microphone, but only a microphone jack in the front of the unit, which is monaural (not stereo).

Try un-installing your graphics hardware Drivers,then re-install the latest Drivers for your system. Of course B4 ya do any of that try adjusting your windows display to any other resolution and see if this changes things..

Toshiba Satellite Notebook M45-S351 I recently purchased an upgraded hard drive - 160 GB Samsung Spinpoint and upgraded the RAM (Crucial 1 GB, bringing the total to 1.5 GB of the allowable 2 GB). Impetus...

Remove thwe new RAM and hard drive. Does it boot to the BIOS menu? If yes, add the hard drive and do the same again then add RAM and do the same.
I suspect something does not fit in properly. Probably the RAM.
Don't forget to initialise the hard drive if trying to format it. The System disk should take care of that.

I have a M45 S351 notebook with a blank monitor. Power is on but no picture on screen. What can I do?

You can connect to an external monitor using the port. If this does not work the video card can be bad. If the external screen does work then it could be your lcd.

Toshiba Satellite M45-S351 BIOS password needs help!

BIOS passwords on Toshiba notebooks have to be reset by an authorized service technician who has the CD available to run the utility.  Their notebooks don't contain a battery reset to erase the password.  It was done as a safety feature to prevent theft from happening and it is a very good one.
If you take it into Best Buy or a computer dealer to get it done, you might have to prove that you are the new owner of the computer before it can happen.

Toshiba M45-S351

Generally a bad hard drive, but it could also be an operating system error/glitch. Do a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. If the repair doesn't take, then reformat the drive and install a new operating system. If you have any issues during or after the format and install, then the hard drive has failed and will need replaced.

Toshiba Satellite M45-S351 PC Notebook

cutemah, Is your cd/dvd internal or usb? Have you tried to login using safemode? When the first Toshiba screen appears press the F8 key. Choose safe mode. Since you say the cd/dvd isn't being recognized that too may be the problem. Try removing the cd/dvd player and see if the machine starts. Is the error code only 0x57 or is there more? It is sounding more hardware related than software related. What program are you using to format the hard drive? Send me a little more information please. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim
