Toshiba P35-S611 Having trouble with my Toshiba laptop. The mouse is unresponsive and the keyboard types upper case when in lower case and the other way around. I have taken apart and cleaned everything the best I can but still no luck. Any suggestions appreciated. Could it be my motherboard or just a mouse and keyboard issue?

Either the AC adaptor is broken (easily checked with a volt-meter), or equally/more likely the computer a/c plug (where you stick the charger tip into the computer) has broken a solder connection. This model is prone to solder failure at this joint, especially if you use the plug often. I fixed mine by opening it up and resoldering the plug. Ask a friend if you don't know how, or check around some computer or electronic stores (not the big stores like Best Buy). It is a rather easy fix...very slightly time consuming, but not difficult. Just a lot of screw removals, etc. Hope this helpls.

P35-611 shuts down while plugged in but not while on battery


using a multi-purpose duster spray can seems to have solved this for me. i dusted the keyboard and a few other areas(carefully) with a q-tip. i wasn't able to fully open my laptop but i sprayed and q-tipped a little on the inside(i couldn't get to the fan which supposedly gathers the most dust) and when i feel the computer getting too warm,i'll spray the keyboard and the back of the computer and my computer ,which was shutting down **** near constantly, hasn't spontaneously shut down since,and i took out the battery. if your problem is dust,this might be at least a partial solution. if you need to take your laptop apart,there are videos on youtube,although like i say i wasn't able to take my p35-s611 all the way apart without possibly damaging the machine.

My Toshiba P35-S611 shuts down without warning a short time (2 min-45 min) after it boots up. The battery isn't hot but the heat dissipation fins in the back are very hot.


Indications of laptop overheating problem:
  1. The keyboard and the bottom of your laptop are very hot when the laptop is working.
  2. The CPU fans are working all the time at maximum rotation speed and operate much louder than before.
  3. The laptop suddenly shuts down by itself without warning. When it just started, the laptop was shutting down after 1-2 hours and how it shuts down after 5-10 minutes of operation.
  4. The laptop works fine when it runs idle, but shuts down as soon as you start using any memory demanding applications (DVD player, image editing software, video editing software, etc.).

Solution:
If the CPU heatsink is not clogged with dust and lint completely, you can use canned air and just blow it inside the laptop through the openings on the bottom and on the sides. It’s nice as a precaution measure, but it might not work if your laptop already has a problem and the heatsink is completely clogged.
  1. Open the laptop case, so you can access the CPU fan and the heatsink. In some cases you can access the heatsink through the latch on the bottom of the laptop. Sometimes (for example Toshiba Satellite A70/A75) you have to open the laptop case all the way down.
  2. Carefully disconnect the fan cables on the system board and remove the fan. If the fan makes unusual sound when it spins (grinding sound), I would recommend to replace the fan.
  3. Clean the fan and the heatsink with compressed air.
  4. I would also recommend removing old thermal grease from the CPU and applying new grease for better heat conductivity.

Satellite P35-S611 has trouble charging


If you have to wiggle the power cord it is most likely the DC jack on the motherboard. It is usually the center pin in the the jack that breaks the solder point and the small tension band inside the jack housing weakens.
