Yaseen-

Sorry to hear about your problem but I urge you- DO NOT continue to use this laptop knowing the fan is not working. While it may not be ideal, you can purchase a new fan and install it yourself fairly easily for under $100 (or have someone at a local computer shop do so) but please understand that the reason it keeps shutting down is a security measure to prevent vital damage to the really expensive hardware components.

Here is a link to a power supply for your laptop if you choose to replace is yourself:

I think you may need a new power supply, check this to make sure it is working OK, If this isn't working then the battery will not charge, and give symptoms you describe.

Just ramdomly powers down


Hi

Thank you for query

Please try the following

1) Switch the laptop on
2) When you switch it on there will be a message advisig to press esc or F12 to go into setup, if this is not there then try pressing F12, esc or the del key
3) This will take you to a blue bios screen
4) leave the laptop in this mode and see if it powers down

If it does you are having a issue with the laptop overheating, it may be the vent is blocked or possibly the heatsink (Fan that sits on top of the CPU) is not working

If it does not cut out you know you have a software issue and this is probably best resolved by a full reformat

If this has been useful please leave positive feedback/vote/testimonial as this will help me greatly - Thank You again

Toshiba satellite a205-S5847 cuts off while working


You could have an overheating problem, The CPU shuts down when it overheats and the laptop won't bootup until the CPU has cooled down.
The overheating problems are caused by a faulty fan or the heatsink/fan assembly is clogged with dust which prevents proper cooling.
Check the fan to see it it spins freely, if not (it has a bearing problem) then replace the fan. Also remove and vacuum the dust off the fan and heatsink.

I want to change the 2 x 512DDR ram by 2x 2GB DDR ram memories in my A205-S4577/Toshiba. Will it work?


hi,
it will work as your notebook is supporting maximum 4 gb RAM but please check that you are using 32 bit operating system or 64 bit one.
If it is 32 bit then the system will be showing 3.2 gb RAM only as this is the 32 bit os limitation.

It crashed and now it automatically shutdown after a minute about


The fan may be cluttered with dust. Clean it. Then turn the unit on and watch to see if the fan does indeeed work. If it does not, shut the unit down till you get a replacement fan. The fact that the unit shuts down is a saftey feature to keep your Proceesor from being damaged.
If cleaning it works, your processor should be ok.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

THE LAPTOP JUST SHUTS IT SELF DOWN


Check if the cooling fan is actually turning on or if the exaust is cloged with any derbis. If so, you should try cleaning them and later observe if it works. However, if the cooling fan fails to run you should replace it.

I want to reboot my Toshiba A200 back to factory settings, i have a spyware down load **** that keeps on asking me to install.....how do i reboot


If you have the recovery CD, then put that in the drive, reboot the laptop and make sure you boot to the CD. The recovery process will start up and you can restore the laptop to it's factory settings. Make sure you have all of your documents, music, etc. backed up.
