Question about Toshiba (225EXTR5)

Computer shuts itself off

The last few times I used my laptop, it "shut off" by itself. It turned right back on and I didn't lose any data...the first time, I thought maybe the battery was low, but it then happened again after I was plugged into outlet. I'm guessing maybe fan is shot. Would appreciate any info. Thanks

Re: computer shuts itself off

Hey Cidney, Sounds like the laptop is overheating, the machine will restart or turn itself off once the temperature goes over 60-65c. Might be a faulty fan or need the thermal paste replaced on the cpu. best bet is to put it into a shop for a free quote if theres anyone near you. afraid i dont think you will be able to fix it yourself, and can sometimes it can be quite costly.. Sorry cant help anymore All the best John

My WD World book unit is only about a month old and up until yesterday was working fine. Now, the lights on the front are looking different, all the LEDs are coming on at the same time or all going off and...

I have had a similar problem with a WD 1TB drive, The problem ended up being the drive itself and I used the warranty to replace it. Hopefully you wont lose any data. There is a method to try and recover data but it doesn't work very oftern: you can put the drive in the freezer for a little bit to cool it off and then try and quickly recover your data from it.

Good Luck!

200 GB Seagate External Drive, Drive Not Formatted

I hope that the information below may be of use to you

I devised these simple steps that tend to remedy quite a few issues with most USB portable / external hard drives and devices (though not always)

A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems (mac/ Linux) similar steps may be adapted to suit.

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability

2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)

3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.

4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.

5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especially true if you move a HUB to another port

If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE.
Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further

USB flash drives can fail for no apparent reason.
Sandisk Cruzers are especially bad for this.

USB hard drives should be treated with extreme care.
This is a real hard drive ! and knocks and bumps can quite literally kill them.

Sometimes it is possible to remove the drive from the case and install it direct into a computer to double check that the drive is OK
This depends on the interface eg SATA or IDE

If the drive is clicking / pinging then this is the worst noise you could hear from a hard drive as it is usually the "Click of death"

Loss of system access - no chance to backup data before fw-upgr.

It may be possible to remove the drive(s) and put them in another system and from that system using those drives as data only drives (not boot) to copy any files which are needed to be backed up.

I have done this a number of times (please note that I am talking about single desktop systems here), every time it has work like a charm.
If the drives are IDE, you need to set one drive at a time (if more than one IDE) as the slave drive. Once the drives are correctly set, then proceed to start the system and copy your data to the media you want.
If the drives are scsi, set them accordingly on another system and number them as slaves or non-boot in the scsi controller bios.
Then copy from your slave or non-boot drive(s) to the media you want to put your data.
If you are using a system with some configuration other than single drives...such as some kind of RAID. then you need other help.

You have the answer in your question. I have checked the PC specification and you are right, it uses PC2700 memory. Therefore you need to install PC2700 memory. PC3200 memory will be the wrong speed and will not be supported.

Can't see the folders after restarting SS400-e

If you check their website, you will find:
Upgrading from a previous version of the firmware (to version 1.4) is a “data destructive” process.
it is strongly recommended that you first backup your existing data to another system in your environment. It is also recommended that you understand your current configuration of users, groups and shares to be able to recreate this under the 1.4 firmware.
