Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite M35X-S109 Notebook ?

I get a 1-3-3-1 error code beep on Toshiba Satellite M35x-S109

\015 I have a Toshiba Satellite M35X-S109. When I turn it on I get 1 long beep, 3 short, 3 short & 1 long beep then nothing. After about 10 restarts it will boot up. I've checked that the memory is seated, I upgraded the BIOS and I bought a new power cord and charger. Right after I upgraded the BIOS it booted right up the first 2 times then it went back to doing the same thing. I'm at a loss. I would appreciate any help I can get. Thanks!\015

Well it sounds to me like it is your actual install, I suggest you that you do a factory restore, \015\012Toshiba laptops from mid 2007 onwards dont have a recovery disc supplied with a purchase of a laptop. Instead, Toshiba has added a hidden partion on the hard drive which contains the same files on a recovery cd / dvd.

To reinstall your laptop to the factory settings / "out of the box" settings, please follow these steps. It worked for me, and should work for you.

ALL DATA WILL BE ERASED ON YOUR HARD DRIVE IF YOU PROCEED. YOU WILL NEED TO ENSURE THAT YOU HAVE THE POWER ADAPTER PLUGGED IN. DO NOT SWITCH OFF OR RESTART YOUR COMPUTER DURING THIS PROCESS.


1) Hold down the power button for 10 (ten) seconds to switch off your machine.

Please note: Holding down the power button on the machine forces it to switch off. Any unsaved data will be lost.

2) Press and hold the 0 (zero) key and at the same time, tap the power button once to switch on your notebook.

3) When the machine Starts beeping; release the 0 key.

4) When prompted by the warning screen; select Yes to continue with the system recovery.

5) Select Recovery of Factory Default Software; click Next.

6) Select Recover to out-of-box state. Click Next again.

7) Click Next to Start recovery.

\015\012If that doesn't work, then do a full, NEW Windows install from a DVD. Also it is handy, to first before you do all this go to the Toshiba's web site and download all drivers, and put them on a USB Key, or DVD that way you can install the operating system, and then install the drivers straight away.

I have a Toshiba Satellite M35X-S109 PC Notebook that had the 1-3-3-1 beep error code on boot up for about a week. After about 10-12 restarts it would finally boot up. When I tried to boot up today the computer came on but the screen is black & no beeps. It has a new hard drive, new power cord and all the memory it can accomodate.
