How do i safely remove the cable that attaches to the motherboard on my toshiba laptop


Toshiba satellite motherboard removal.

A motherboard is usually replaced for one of two reasons. You either replace a motherboard because it has gone bad, or you replace an older motherboard with a new or upgraded motherboard. In either case you will have to completely disassemble your laptop to even gain access to your motherboard. Fortunately, the Toshiba Satellite laptop can be completely disassembled even if you don't have a lot of technical knowledge.

Turn off the laptop, disconnect the power cable, remove the battery pack and disconnect any miscellaneous cables and peripheral devices. WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source. Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer. While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards Attach an antistatic wrist bracelet to prevent shock from static electricity. Static electricity can harm your computer's internal parts. Place the laptop face down, and remove the single Phillips-head screw attached to the hard drive cover. Remove the hard drive cover, then set it aside. Remove the single Phillips-head screw attached to the wireless card/memory cover. Remove the cover and set it aside. Slide the hard drive out of its compartment. This will disconnect the hard drive from the computer. Set the hard drive aside very carefully. Push on the ejector tabs on either side of each RAM module. Slide the RAM modules out of their compartments at a 45-degree angle. Remove them from the laptop and set them carefully aside. Disconnect the antenna cable from the wireless card, and then lift the wireless card out of the laptop. Remove the four retaining screws from the modem card. Lift the modem card slightly out of the laptop, and then disconnect the modem cable from the motherboard. Set the modem card aside. Remove the single Phillips-head screw securing the DVD/optical drive. Slide the DVD drive out of the laptop's frame and set it aside. Remove all marked screws from the bottom casing of the laptop, and then place the laptop face up. Open the laptop as far as it will go. Use a small flathead screwdriver to pry up the keyboard bezel. The keyboard bezel is a small plastic strip sitting between the keyboard and the LCD display. Remove the two Phillips-head screws securing the keyboard in place. Lift up on the keyboard and disconnect the keyboard's ribbon connector from the motherboard. Remove the keyboard from the laptop and set it aside very carefully. Close the laptop. Place the laptop vertically so the LCD display hinges are face up. Remove the two Phillips-head screws from the hinges. Set the laptop down and open the laptop as far as it will go. Remove the four Phillips-head screws securing the LCD display. Lift up on the LCD display, and then disconnect the video cable from the motherboard. Remove the LCD display from the laptop and set it aside carefully. Disconnect the DVD control board cable, the touchpad cables and speaker cables from the motherboard. Disengage the plastic latches on the rear of the laptop casing near the hinges, and then remove the top casing from the laptop's base and set it aside. Remove the two Phillips-head screws securing the CPU fan and heat sink in place. Disconnect the fan cable from the motherboard. Remove the fan and heat sink from the motherboard and set it aside. Remove the single Phillips-head screw securing the motherboard to the bottom laptop casing. Disconnect the USB port connector from the motherboard and remove the jack from its housing. Lift the motherboard from the bottom laptop casing and very carefully set it aside.

Clean heat sink on toshiba satellite


Turn off the Satellite laptop and flip it over so you can see the bottom. Push the battery latch towards the outside of the laptop and remove the battery.


Locate the heat sink panel, which will be next to, or including, the two fans that you can see. Unscrew the two to three screws that are holding that panel down, and remove them.


A few models of Satellite laptops use Torx sized-8 screws instead of Phillips.

Unplug the cables running from the two fans to the control board.


You can see the cables coming up from under the fans.

Then unscrew the two to three screws on the fans, and pull up to remove the fan unit from the laptop.


If your Satellite heat sink panel does not uncover the fans as well as the heat sink, ignore this step.

Remove the four screws that surround the heat sink.

Then move the heat sink back and forth to disconnect it from the CPU.


If your laptop shuts down by itself without any reason, check the heat sink first.

Overheating is a very common problem among Toshiba laptops.


Lift up on the heat sink to remove it from the unit.

If the CPU got caught on the heat sink and comes off as well, grasp it by the edges and peel it off the heat sink.


Turn the screw on the side of the CPU socket to unlock it, then place the CPU back in its socket and lock it again.


Blow compressed air into the heat sink and the fans until the dust is removed.

Then blow the air onto the control board to remove loose dust from there as well.


Place some Isopropyl alcohol onto your cloth, or a small brush, and clean the processor and the control board area around the processor.


You will also want to wipe up the thermal grease that is on these components. Make a note of the area where you removed the thermal paste.


Reapply a layer of thermal grease in the areas where you removed it.

The lid of the thermal grease container will have an applicator.

Just spread the grease over the components.

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Thermal-Compound-Roundup-February-2012/1490


Replace the heat sink, then the fans and finally the heat sink panel cover.


hope this helps

How to remove the back cover of a Panasonic CF-W7 laptop in order to to replace the faulty exhaust fan?


LOL, ok, close the lid, remove the power cord, remove the battery, then turn the laptop over and start removing screws. You better write the screws down on a piece of paper or put them in a cup with a piece of paper that identifies where they came from. Sometimes removing the bottom is not all there is to it. You will probably have to remove the lcd screen, keyboard and palmrest to get to the fan. Good Luck!!!

Oh, by the way, there will probably be screws in the hard drive case, the battery case and all along the palmrest as it is secured to the motherboard. So you will also need to remove the hard drive, memory, CD/DvD Drive, wifi card, and most definitely the Heat Sink that most ime houses the fan and is on top of the CPU. You'll need some Thermal Paste to put back on the Heat Sin and CPU once you remove it. Otherwise most times your laptop will not boot if metal touches metal, or it will run hot and shut down if the coat of Thermal Paste is too thin or has dried up.

Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) can kill your computer

ESD can permanently damage your laptop. Always ware ESD wrist strap when you work with internal computer components.

How notebook screws are marked


In Toshiba notebooks most screws are marked. Here are some examples:
F4 - flat-head screw 4mm long
B6 - button-head screw 6mm long
F16 - flat-head screw 16mm long
B8 - button-head screw 8mm long

When you are taking apart a laptop you'll have to deal with lots of screws. Keep everything organized.


Removing Memory Modules


Carefully spread latches on both sides of the memory slot with your fingers.


Carefully spread latches on both sides of the memory slot with your fingers.


Carefully pull the memory module from the slot by the edges.


Removing Wireless Card

There are two antenna wires connected to the wireless card.
White wire connects to the main connector on the card.
Black wire connects to the auxiliary connector on the card.

To disconnect the antenna wire from the wireless card grasp the connector with your fingers and unsnap it from the card.

Carefully spread latches on both sides of the wireless card slot, just enough to release the card.


The wireless card will pop up at 30 degrees angle.

Pull the wireless card from the slot by the edges.


Disconnecting Keyboard


Before you pull the keyboard cable from the connector on the motherboard, you'll have to open up the connector.

Before you pull the keyboard cable from the connector on the motherboard, you'll have to open up the connector.

After the connector is unlocked you can pull the cable. Be very careful with the connector. If you accidentally damage the connector, you'll have to replace the motherboard.

Removing Modem Card

The connector is located under the modem and you cannot see it until the modem is remove. After the modem is removed, disconnect the cable (on the left side).

\Usually the modem is secured to the motherboard by two screws. Remove them.

To disconnect the modem from the motherboard lift it up.


CPU came out attached to heatsink
In some cases, when you remove the heat sink, the CPU might get out attached to the heat sink. DO NOT install it back into the socket like that, separate the CPU from the heat sink first.


CPU came out attached to the heat sink because thermal paste dried out and glued the processor.

Insert a flathead screwdriver between the CPU and the heat sink surface. Carefully rotate the screwdriver until the CPU separates from the heat sink.

\Lift up the CPU and install it back into the socket on the motherboard. Now you can safely remove old thermal paste and apply a new layer of paste.


Removing and Installing CPU


The CPU is locked in the socket. Before you can remove the CPU, you'll have to unlock the socket. Use a flathead screwdriver and turn the socket screw to "Open" position.


Lift up the CPU by the edges. Be careful, there are a lot of fragile pins on the opposite side of the CPU. You should be able to install the CPU back into the socket without any force.

There is only one correct way to install the processor into the socket. Both CPU and socket are keyed. When you are installing the CPU, make sure to match pins on the processor with holes on the socket.

Before applying thermal grease on the CPU, clean the surface with alcohol.

After the CPU surface is cleaned, apply a small drop of thermal grease.

Spread thermal grease evenly and install the heat sink.


ATTENTION! If you forget to lock the CPU in the socket, the laptop will not boot. If you install the heat sink without applying thermal grease, the CPU will overheat.

Laptop won't boot turns on then off after about


Hello,

Your Laptop seems to be full of dust - Maybe your CPU Heat sink FAN cannot turn because if this THUS causing your laptop to heat up and shut down again to prevent your CPU from receiving damage due to high temperature.

Close your laptop lid, then put the unit on its backlcd. Make sure you disconnect the Battery and the A/C Power chord. With the emty battery slot is facing you, take note of the screw that is facing you to the right on the bottom cover. There might be others like this in the same area. The cover that you need to remove is of rectangular shape, and the largest cover.

When you have removed it you should see the CPU Heat sink and a FAN. This is the part where you blow the unit out at that spot with compressed air so that the dirt will no longer block the heat from venting away from the laptop mainboard/cpu.Please check if the CPU FAN is still turning licenly. If it doesn't turn or very difficult - replace .

[ADVANCED]
Then, remove the 3 screws from the CPU heat sink and thereby remove the HEAT sink completely. Remove the CPU Heat sink FAN and clean it as nessesary. Use a small flat to switch the CPU from closed to open and remove it. Then clean it with a cloth and ethanol - make sure you remove all dirt and old heat sink paste on top if it. make sure you do not touch the bottom of the CPU and handle the pins carefully.

When you are done, place the CPU back and reaaply a eyedrop of fresh heatsink paste onto the CPU, lock the CPU switch again. Then clean the backside of the CPU heat sink where it rests on the CPU. When you are done with that, place the CPU heat sink back onto the CPU then screw the 3 screws back onto the CPU heat sink and onto the mainboard. Keep the sequence in mind. Reconnect the CPU Heat sink FAN to power on the mainboard with the cable then place the cover back onto it. Tighten all screws again and reconnect battery and A/C Power chord.

Hi George,

If you power on with an external monitor connected, no function-F5 is necessary - it will default to the external monitor automatically.

I don't think Darkman is on the right path here (sorry Darkman). It is possible, but I suspect not. A damaged/corrupt page file won't fix itself automatically after 5-7 days and suddenly boot the PC.....honestly. If there are bad sectors on the hard drive though, this could certainly be the issue. We'll get to this in a bit....

We need to eliminate a few potential problems first.....like sketchy hardware.

Please remove the ram and clean the contacts on it, and the slot(s) with a pink pencil eraser. You want to make the contacts clean and shiny. The ram chips are under an access panel on the bottom of the laptop. Try to boot. If no good, read on.

Please try removing the hard drive drive from the laptop (see below). Try booting with no hd first. If you see an Acer splash screen (logo), and then 'no operating system found', then the hard drive is likely the issue:

If it boots consistently with no hard drive, then please try this:
Enter the bios of the laptop by pressing either F2 or del at boot time when you see the Acer logo. Go to 'boot' options, and make sure the optical drive is the first boot device at the top of the list. From here, you need to get a Windows XP cd (yes, I know you're running vista). Put the hard drive back in, boot the laptop to the cd and select the option to repair windows from the recovery console. Once you have a command/dos prompt, type the following:

chkdsk c: /r

This command will check the hard drive for file corruption and bad sectors. This will take 1-3 hrs probably, depending on the size of the hard drive. If it indicates that data was recovered from bad sectors, and the laptop boots now, shut it down, take it to a reputable repair shop immediately and ask them to clone your hard drive onto a new one. Bad sectors = impending doom.

If it won't boot with the hard drive removed....try removing the optical (dvd) drive. If still no joy with hd and optical removed, let me know.

You can access the hard drive from an access panel on the bottom of the laptop. Remove the cover, remove any retaining screws for the hard drive and simply slide it to disengage the connector and pop it out. If still no boot, one screw on the bottom of the laptop will release the optical drive. Flip the laptop over, and try to visualize where the optical drive sits in the laptop. The screw will be near one of the corners of where the optical drive drive sits.

Please let me know how you make out. Don't worry... I will help you ascertain the cause of the issue :)
