Question about Toshiba Satellite M35X-S349 Notebook
Just took my notebook apart to clean the fan. I followed all of the instructions on the YouTube video to disassemble it; now, I am having trouble getting it back together. There were no reassemble videos for this model. I now have two long thin wires leading from my LCD, and I do not know where they go, or, even if they connect to anything. Does anyone know how to reassemble this model?
The long thin wires are the aerial wires that connect to the wireless card. they are normally a black and a white wire and they have a connector that attaches to the wireless card.

Is this an external drive? Here a tip: Anytime you use a peripheral with USB you must load the drivers first, then hook up the device. This is only with USB devices. So try uninstalling your DVD driver, unplug the DVD player, reload the driver for the DVD player, then hook the DVD player back up. That should take care of it.

Your fan is running to keep your system (mainly your processor) from overheating. Heat is the biggest enemy of laptops, and most aren't designed to put on your lap (as air intake ports are usually on the bottom and blocking them with your pants, comforter, blanket, etc... will not allow air to circulate causing heat sensing hardware/software to kick the fan into high speed) as that name would suggest. I believe that Notebook computer is the more proper term for most of them, though some are designed with no air intakes on the bottom side, unfortunately yours does. When you opened it up and "cleaned it" did you clean the heat sync and the other components or just the fan? If your PC is in a smoking environment it will have tar build up holding the dust and need a more thorough cleaning than just blowing it out with canned air from the outside (you may want to disassemble it and clean it with a non residual, non petroleum based contact cleaner. Otherwise there are plenty of temperature monitoring softwares out that will tell you what the processor and harddrive temperature are and most have free trials that you may want to try to see if heat is your problem. There is also software available to monitor and even increase/decrease your fan speed.

problem:sounds like polarity is switched on wireless card
Solution: remove cover plate on bottom and make sure black wire runs to Main and white wire runs to AUX

DVD RAM drives plug in to any available USB port. Your computer should assign it a drive letter; using Computer, explore ther drive's contents looking for an Install application. Run this` application and you ought to be able to get to the drive.
