Question about Toshiba Satellite A205-S4617 Notebook

1 Answer

Beeping then shuts down.

I have a Satellite M65 laptop. After about ten minutes of running, it starts to beep for about 2 minutes and then shuts off. Though it was the cooling fan failure but I can hear it running on low speed when it starts to beep. The cooling fan does not switch to high like it used to do.
When starting up the laptop, the fan runs in a self check mode and the the fan comes on high.
I found a updated BIOS for it and ran that. It work for awhile (about a week) then went right back to the beeping. Any idea because I'm out!

Hi Speedport!

This isn't something as simple as a dead / broken / malfuctioning battery is it ? Try removing your battery, plugging the laptop into the mains and running it idle. The Bios update you found may have been a coincedence...

    No I mean completely remove the battery from the laptop casing, and just power the laptop via the mains cable... any change in laptop behavour doing this ?

    It might be a problematic battery that is causing the laptop to think that it is discharged, and thus shut down. You may need a new one if removing the battery and running the laptop purely from mains is successful.

The dishwasher continue beeping one sound every few minutes, even after I shut down the power. Why and how I can fix it


Good Afternoon Tie, thank you for your inquiry!

From what you have described your Frigidaire dishwasher continues beeping a sound every few minutes even when the power has been shut off. It sounds like this could be a possible issue with your control panel or keypad. I would recommend performing a reset on your dishwasher and you can do that by flipping the household circuit breaker off for at least ten minutes. I hope this information is helpful for you. -Matt

Good Morning friend, thank you for your post!

From my understanding your Frigidaire dryer, LEQ1442ES1, will run and then shut down after three or four minutes. I would recommend a reset on your dryer which you can do by unplugging your power cord for roughly ten minutes.

If that does not correct the issue it sounds like a potential problem with your control panel or a sensor. I would suggest having a professional come out and repair your appliance to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. -Matt
