Question about Toshiba Satellite A135 Notebook
My Toshiba M35-S456 is four years old and now out of warranty. These problems were contant during the four years and when serviced only calmed down for a few weeks at a time. First of all the fan is extremely noisy. Sometimes it even clanks. After service it will be quiet for about one month but then it starts up again. The second problem is the Matshita UJ-810 DVD-Ram. I will only run, load, play, recognize certain disks. All others now get an I/O error message and will not open. You can see the icon for a few seconds and it whirs, but then all goes quiet. I have searched threads and gotten advice in other forums but nothing has helped. Is this computer worth sending in to be fixed AGAIN (now at my expense) or are these repearing problems a curse of the machine?
It does sound like the problems you have could be largely down to the fan not running freely and allowing the processor to run hot. There for a new fan unit may be required. However a little trick to find out if over heating is the problem. Place the lap top in to a refrigerator for a couple of hours then leaving it placed in the fridge with the door open see if it will operate normally while sitting in the fridge.
If it does then the over heating factor is confirmed there for a new fan unit will solve the problems. This somewhat unorthodox method has worked for me on more than one occasion Hope this helps
