    Took out all visable screws, including all on bottom of laptop, and one on bottom of laptop near end of CD/DVD, but will not come out. Recovery CDs will not boot.

I had the same problem with the Satellite P15 S420. Following Psybheng's lead I fooled with the screws on the bottom and found that the disk drive is held in by one screw. With the unit upside down and the disk drive at your stomach, you will see a screw slightly to the left that goes into the 'frame'. Remove it and remove the drive!

The DVD drive is secured to the laptop by two screws.
Remove two screws and slide the DVD drive out of the notebook base.

You can visit this site where you can locate the 2 screws http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/ToshibaA45/Satellite-A45-remove-hinges-1.htm

Should a toshiba a45 s121 mb post without memory installed?


No. The A45 series (and the near identical A40 series) have no base memory: at least one of the two RAM sockets underneath the keyboard needs to be populated for it to post.

On the web, go to Toshiba.com and select your country. Look for support or downloads then choose your computer. You should get to a page that has all the latest downloads for your computer. You may want to download them all as they will be the latest, and install them.
