Satellite M45-S265 trying to start then dies

I have a M45-S265 and when I turn it on the light (market), fan turns then it just dies. I tried taking the battery and it worked once then froze. Kept by train over a period of one week, same result, came back after a week, with the battery and it started and then frozen again.

I don't know if this could a defective switch or what! The fact that it froze on the two occasions he actually started confused me!



Hmm. First check if you AC adapter is ok and if it s properly connected to the laptop. You must make sure that AC adapter provides power to the laptop.

As a next step, you should check if it s not a software problem. In this case, you should try to boot from the recovery disc.
If it of not possible to reinstall the OS using this disc, then a hardware problem might be possible.

In this case the RAM modules should be checked. Perhaps one of the modules or the two RAM modules are defective and so the laptop does not work as it should.

Last but not least if you don t have enough resources to perform this laptop computer test then you should contact a technician for laptop.

  • Satellite M45-S265 - no boot & gel

    Hi all

    I have a Satellite M45-S265, it won't start.
    When I start it sometimes it will start to load Windows XP then it will freeze and a small ramindomly box appears on the screen, and sometimes it does not start it and other times where I put it to the top of the screen displayed only half size.

    Any ideas what it is?

    PS: I know that the hard drive is good


    > displayed only half size.
    This occurs on an external monitor too?
    If so it could be a problem with your graphics card or motherboard, and this would be the reason why Windows doesn't start over.

    Have you tried to recover the laptop using the Toshiba Recovery disk? Is the same problem occurs if you do this?

    Good bye

  • Cannot use the recovery for Satellite M45-S265 disc

    I tried using the recovery disk for M45-S265 of my granddaughter.

    According to the instructions that I'm supposed to put the DVD drive, and then turn off completely the machine. After that, restart and immediately hold down the F12 key, which should produce some sort of menu and then go through the recovery from there.

    However when I take the key F12 is pressed after the closing, nothing happens.

    So I'm looking for some real help here my friends. Thank you very much.


    Can access you the BIOS as suggested by Feliks?
    Select this check box and set the CD/DVD player in the first position.

    Save the changes, and then attempts to boot from the disc of recovery again.

  • Satellite M45-S265 - how to remove file system WiFi?

    This Machine of M45-S265 has Intel Pro/Wireless BG network connection.
    The driver installed is only intel Version 12\19\2007 dated

    So I want to "completely" uninstall this driver from the system.
    Go through Device Manager and simply ask to uninstall does not completely uninstall.

    Because as soon as it updates it will reinstall the same file from a cache somewhere in the system.
    So, how can I completely uninstall such a driver of the machine?

    Can someone answer this for me? Thank you very much.


    In Device Manager, you can check were the WLan driver file has been installed and the way in which it is called.

    Choose the card WLan-> properties-> tab driver-> Driver Details

    You will see the path and how the driver files are called.
    Go to this folder, and then delete it.

    Good bye

  • WiFi is so screwed on Satellite M45-S265

    Before using a recovery disk, I would like to see if I can solve the problem of WiFi with this machine M45-S265.

    Now WiFi is so screwed with this machine I can't Wireless at all.
    Fortunately the Ethernet works fine so it's on the net.

    Then, how they "completely" uninstall drivers WiFi for this machine?
    If I use the uninstall in Device Manager, it will just refresh and then reinstall the same bad drivers.

    So first of all, I need to know "exactly" I should use to update this naughty drivers?
    So what should be the real procedure to uninstall all the bad things and then reinsert the new.

    I hope that all makes sense.
    Thank you much for the help. It drove me into a wall.

    > So how it "completely" uninstall WiFi drivers for this machine?
    If I use the uninstall in Device Manager, it will just refresh and then reinstall the same bad drivers.

    In Device Manager, you can see what WLan card you have; Intel or Atheros.

    So after verifying that you can visit the page of the Toshiba driver us and choose your model of laptop.

    Choose the driver WLan and download and unzip.

    Then go to Device Manager, uninstall the old WLan drivers and then install the downloaded driver WLan again.
    I would recommend pointing to the place where the new Wlan driver was decompressed.

  • Dimension 3000 starts then dies

    Hi, I have a Dell Dimension 3000 that starts and runs for about three seconds, then dies.  At this point, you will need to cut the power, plug before you will get no response from the PC. I swapped the power supply and disconnected all drives, network card and memory.

    The four diagnostic lights turns on, a couple changes color, then turns off when the power dies.

    I think that it's probably the motherboard or something on the motherboard. is it possible to narrow the problem, so I can buy the right replacement the first half?

    Here is a short film of the lights during the power upward.

    cs_setInnerHtml ('video_2df752e2-1249-459-b42a-9fdd6ada68a3', ");



    "is it possible to narrow the problem, so I can buy the right replacement the first half?

    Which is not always possible, unfortunately, while a person may make an informed diagnosis, sometimes, due to the complexity of the components, computer troubleshooting is diagnosis by substitution.

    The power button LED, green, solid orange, green, orange, flashing flashing or off?

    If you're comfortable working around computers, you can try the following:

    Note: The only 100% POWER supply test method, is to install a known working power.

    Unplug the power cord, hold the power button in for about 15-20 seconds, open the case, disconnect the power connector 20 pins on the motherboard and jumping the Green wire to one of the black wires, plug in the power cord and the power of the system, if the PSU, case fans and disk hard drive performance then the power supply can be good.

    Note: Do not remove the wires from the plug, use a small piece of wire or a paper clip as a rider.

    Extract supply and the system still does not work, yet once remove the power cord, hold button power in a few seconds to discharge residual power, reconnect the connector 20 pins on the motherboard.

    Remove any PCI video card [as appropriate], memory cards, all the devices, unplug data cables and power to all readers, check that the cable from the front panel is connected to the motherboard, without anything else connected to the system, reconnect the power cable and power the system on.

    If there is no difference in the diagnostic lights, a "Beep" codes and/or the indication of the LED on the power button, it would seem that the motherboard is dead or maybe the processor.

    Note: The good news is, processors lack rarely, being the only method I know to check a processor, install a compatible work PC, or use a known job processing.


  • Satellite A120 - screen flashes Intel logo then dies

    As I said in the question and I know that the laptop itself is running because once started it's the sounds of the connection. My os is ubuntu, if that helps.

    No matter what people thought?


    According to the information which you may I ask if you have connected to an external monitor? So, theoretically, you should see a picture on it.

    If the external monitor works, you can order a new internal monitor to an authorized service. On the Toshiba site, you can find a list of them.

  • Satellite M45-S265 - cannot install the wireless network

    Hi all!

    My laptop has had a big problem and HARD drive crashed. Unfortunately I lost all the data with no chance to recover anything. I installed a new HARD drive. I installed Win XP - SP3.

    But I'm unable to install the wireless network. I continue to pass the button in front of the laptop - nothing. I type the combination Fn + F8 - nothing. I think that I have not installed the driver corectly.

    P.S. - of course, I lost the CD.

    Can someone help me?

    Thank you.


    > I think that I have not installed the driver corectly.
    Then you need to (re) install the WLAN driver. Otherwise, you are not able to use the WLAN connection correctly.

    Anyway, your model is listed on official Toshiba US page so that you can get all the drivers:

    If you have any other questions, please let us know! :)

  • Is there a Toshiba Power Saver for Satellite M45 with Vista

    Dear all,

    Is there a version of TOSHIBA Power Saver for windows Vista that do not check the model of the computer before installation because I Satellite M45-S265 and I know that it is not supported for Vista, but I got vista successfully work on GST on it to help I will be grateful.

    Kind regards
    * Fr. Mohamed Hussein *.



    You're right about the support of Vista. AFAIK there is no version of universal power saver, but in my opinion you don't need it at all. Tool for Vista does not seem like the old version and Vista many parameters were taken over from Vista itself.

    Because of that I'm sure you didn't need at all. Be happy that Vista works well on your laptop satellite. Optimize the operating system and enjoy.

  • Satellite M45 won't start at all

    Greetings! My Satellite M45 seems to be really sick! It started a while the battery dies slowly, and finally, the laptop would refuse to go into the BIOS to the battery power.

    I ordered a new battery (which I'm still waiting) and continued to use the computer laptop external power, but every now and then, he would refuse to boot from an external power supply.

    When you press the power button, the screen 'TOSHIBA Touch with tomorrow' arrives - but with a problem - then crashes (with the fan). The problem (other than the hanging), is that the screen is 'moved' to the left. Rather than fill the entire screen, the start screen "ignores" the rightmost 2 inches and a half inch low and appears in the rest of the screen. Its a little hard to explain...

    This morning, refusing to boot at all!

    Any ideas? I tried to reinstall the ram, turn on/off without battery, only on the battery, I have removed all the 'extras' and am quite a loss now!

    I can't go to the menu of the bios either - so its very frustrating!

    Any help would be great!


    This s a shame! Description does not sound you well ;(
    For most hardware is malfunctioning if the laptop is unable to successfully pass the TOSHIBA Touch screen with tomorrow!
    Seems the POST (power on self-test) failed!

    I think that there's not a lot to do! The laptop must be professionally checked by an authorized technician. Guys might start and run tests from diagnostics and could locate the source of the fault.

    Call the ASP in your country and describes the history and details. I guess you will have to send the laptop to the service provider authorized ;(

    Good luck

  • Satellite P750 stops at the start of the 1st time but then works great 2nd time

    My Satellite P750 always stops on the first time every day, but the 2nd boot works fine and no other problems...

    I press the Start button and it runs for maybe 10-20 seconds then stops... She does both on battery or power outlet...

    If I try to start again after that, it starts fine... sometimes, it gives the possibility to start in safe mode, or run the Startup Repair tool, but it always starts well and works normally...

    I tried to start repair when the option was given, and it is immaterial that the next day, he does the same thing again...

    Any advice appreciated, and Im a bit concerned that one day he did not start the second time...

    The laptop is only around the age of 6 months and otherwise runs great...

    Thank you


    Recovery of the laptop back to factory settings.
    You use the Win 8 or Win 7 system?

    Usually, books Win 7 supports a HARD drive recovery by pressing F8-> fix my computer-> drive HARD recovery.

    If the same problem appears on the right after the system has been recovered, I guess there is a hardware problem and a technician must check the hardware parts.
