The laptop freezes after being on for a little while.

The laptop freezes up after being up for a little while, inorder to shut it down you have to push the power button until it finally turns off. reset won't work. This is not my laptop in is my friends She bought a reconditioned one and the warrenty is out of date. I also notice that the fan is clean but does not kick on (could this be the problem). everything inside is dust feel also.

Any help would be great. :)

Does she have the power saving settings turned on? If so try to turn them off and see if the problem continues.

What do you mean by the fan does not kick on? If the fan is not working that could definately be part of if not all of the problem. The internal components need to be cooled efficiently in order for the computer to run. If any of the components have overheated this problem may require taking the computer to a technician to have them replaced.

As i was saying before try to turn the power saving off. This only helps when the computer is running off battery but it still causes more problems than it is worth.

    Unfortunately on most laptops you are not able to upgrade or replace the cpu. The cpu is built into the motherboard. If the processor is the problem you would be better off replacing the computer

Well it can be possible the problem. the unit can get overheated because there was no airflow coming inside.

Toshiba satellite m40 booting problem.


Hi! It appears that possibly your hrad drive isn't set properly in the caddy? with the laptop powered down and disconnected locate the hard drive cover pop out the two locating screws and carefully move the caddy/hard drive BEWARE as the drive has fragile pins at the opposite end where you opened, hopefully little sliding pressure should remove. Check the retaining screws around the caddy (You'll need a small torx/philips screw driver for this) if all tight replace gently.
If you are uncertain I would recommend a technician check it for you.
Good Luck!
