Question about Toshiba Satellite M45-S165 Notebook
Similar problems that other's have posted. I can watch 2 movies in row and it will not freeze, most of the time. But as soon as I touch the keyboard, mouse or maybe even press to hard on the case it will freeze up. Which leads me to believe a connector is loose and needs to be re-soldered, maybe?! I have taken it in however the tech and I may have not been on the same page because $200.00 later and it still does the same thing. He did replace the usb ports because they were very loose & as soon as he plugged in his thumb drive it shut down. Ok 1 problem solved. It seems to do fine as a DVD player as long as I don't touch it. I did get a refund of $100.00 from the local repair shop. Do you suggest I take it in to a different tech and is it worth it? It's a nice laptop with an awesome screen can't see throwing it out.
Toshiba did extend the warranty on the M30-M35 models for the same problem. It's a short connected to the palm rest somehow. It is fixable, however the chances of having a shop in your area which has experience in this situation is slim. Sorry I can't offer more specific help. If it were in my shop you could be using it in a day or two... Good luck
