Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite M45-S169 Notebook ?

Freezes exactly where it is. Apply pressure to palm areas and it continues?

\015 It wil start up ok then stops where it is. Screen stops exactly whre it was. If you apply pressure to left side of mouse pad it will pick up exactly whre it was. A few seconds later it stops. I can actually take out the hard drive and the screen stays. I put the hard drive back on and apply pressure and it picks right up like it never knew the hard drive was gone. I have taken the mother board out and looked very close with magnifying glass to see any crack or anything. I don't understand that if there is a short or something, it should shut computer off or something. If I apply alot of pressure, the computer will run fine. I have heard that it could be a cracked motherboard, but if that is case, shouldn't the system crash?\015

Answers :

You must have a melted contact. Try to identify in the zone you apply pressure (or in the far angle of the M/B that should rise while you push the mouse pad - tension) and see if there's a "free" contact...Try it opening the cover and letting the pc work...see what the pressure modifies....it's weird though!
