Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite M45-S265 Notebook ?

Laptop freeze up and shutdown by itself, then can't boot up after

\015 I got a Toshiba Satellite M45 S265, it ran okay until it freezes up on me and then shut down by itself. After that it can't boot up anymore. I think its bad RAM or bad CPU or even the motherboard, or other thing that i might not know. Well I was wondering how do you test for a bad CPU or bad motherboard. Please help!!\015\012\015\012Thanks in advance\015

Answers :

If it is still under warranty, you'd save yourself a lot of time and money if you just send it in for repair. If it isn't, the way to test if the RAM is bad is by trying to use the stick in another laptop or by trying to replace the RAM you currently have with RAM that you know is working (has worked on another computer). If the problem is with the motherboard or CPU, for most people it's better to just sell the laptop AS-IS with a good description on eBay and buy a new laptop.
