I have the M400 and it also does this. I don't know much about computers, but I found out when you apply a little pressure to the left of the touchpad and beneath the keyboard as you're flipping on the power slider, it boots up much more often. I know... sounds crazy and stupid, but it works for mine and it's been doing it for almost a whole year now. It doesn't work everytime, but whenever the light flashes and the fan cranks up to a million RPM i just pull the battery out

I have a Toshiba Portege M400. It runs ok if I leave it on a flat surface. However, if I try to move it the screen freezes up and the fan starts running very loudly. I am unable to do anything except cut power and start the computer up again. Recently I have also had problems getting it to start unless the screen is in a particular position.


Sounds like there might be dust inside of the laptop that is blocking one of the air vents. Plus the connectors to the screen may need to be reseated so that way the screen can be moved freely without it locking up on you and cutting off. You have two issues going on. Bring it to somebody so they can open it up and make sure the air vents are cleaned out. Also they need to make sure the CPU fan is running properly. Then with the screen the connectors need to be reseated. Its also quite possible the screen connector might need to be replaced. If the laptop is under warranty see if Toshiba will reapir it.

Best bet may be to look for a second Laptop for spare parts use boteh to fix one and then sell the remaining spare parts. Or sell yours for spare parts and you buy a new one.

I changed the hard drive in my m400 and i doesnt load windows says somthing about a dianostic disc! what do I do.


Your question is a little vague, but If you do not have the original install disks, you need to go to Toshiba and download the Hard Disk Raid Driver, then copy them to a thumb drive, then load the drivers when prompted by windows. Without the original disks, it does not matter what version of Windows you install, but without the Toshiba driver for the version of windows you have, it will not recognize the hard drive. When you mention diagnostic disk, did you try and buy the disks from someone after you bought the machine. If so they may have given you the engineering disks, and not the windows disk. One option you do have is if you still need windows and the correct disks, is to contact Toshiba technical support. You can buy the restore disks for about $25, but they take about ten days to ship. G-Luck.
