Turn it off turn it over and clean the fan on the bottom. I use a Satellite a25. I have used air to blow out the cooling coils a nunber of times. Toshiba has picuten in the owners manual on how to remove the fan for cleaning. it picks up dust from the work area and does not blow it clear. this cause it to over heat most likely

I have a toshiba satellite a215 s7422 and it keeps shutting down on me so i disassembled it and cleaned out the fan but it still keeps shutting down...i recently had the bios reset, i don't know if that...


You should look for the following answers.
(1) Are you operating your laptop in a in a hot and dusty environment (If yes you should know that computers do not like hot and dusty environments and they shut down to avoid a complete burn out of the machine more over the dust particles also can destroy the hardware and block internal fan ventilation ducts in between the CPU and the fan).
(2) When the your laptop PC shuts down place your hand underneath the laptop and try to feel hot spots. If you find areas unusually heated then this is the main cause of the shut down.
(3) If just after the shut down and a good usage the Laptop is cool then underneath than overheating shut down might not be the case.
If you determined that heating is the cause and you cannot change your environment than you should look for other heavy duty laptops that are robustly designed for hot environments.
I do not think that resting the BIOS can cause this.

Toshiba satilite a215 s7422 bios password how to cleare


You'll need a special tool that only Toshiba has. I believe you can get yours cleared for FREE if you tell them that all of a sudden out of nowhere you have a bios password. Stick to that story because they've already admitted to the problem with many of their laptops. You'll have to find an authorized Toshiba repair center to take care of it for you. Otherwise I believe they charge around $100 to clear it.

Don't bother to try the cmos battery trick, it doesn't work on your model. The password is stored on an onboard chip.

Overheating trouble?


It sounds to me that your laptop fan is either clogged with dust or the bearings have jammed. Its most likely going to be necessary to open up the laptop and clean or replace the fan. This will require an experienced technician to avoid risking further damage. I have done it and its tedious at best. No other solution will work.

Toshiba Satellite A105 laptop keeps shutting off for no reason.


I think your fan might be broken....if the fan doesn't cool the pc,the processor or the chipset will automatically shut down the pc to prevent burning hardware.Or your hard drive might keep crashing.Oh yeah and abstract from this i don't recommend ever using mcaffe
