Overheating When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

Toshiba satellllite m100 suddenly shut off after using it for half an hour to an hour


Is it getting hot? If so it will shut itself off to prevent damage and probably needs the fan cleaned out to improve airflow.

My laptop shut down after powering out with no warning and will not restart.... Toshiba L550 screen stays black but when I hit the enter key it beeps........any suggestions


“My Toshiba laptop suddenly shuts down by itself without any warning. Sometimes it works fine for hours, sometimes it shuts down in 10-15 minutes.” This complaint we hear from our customers over and over again. About 15-20% of all Toshiba laptops we get for repair, suffer from an overheating problem. Yep, OVERHEATING!
This is one of the most common problems with Toshiba laptops we deal with.
Indications of laptop overheating problem:
  1. The keyboard and the bottom of your laptop are very hot when the laptop is working.
  2. The CPU fans are working all the time at maximum rotation speed and operate much louder than before.
  3. The laptop suddenly shuts down by itself without warning. When it just started, the laptop was shutting down after 1-2 hours and how it shuts down after 5-10 minutes of operation.
  4. The laptop works fine when it runs idle, but shuts down as soon as you start using any memory demanding applications (DVD player, image editing software, video editing software, etc.).

Solution:
If the CPU heatsink is not clogged with dust and lint completely, you can use canned air and just blow it inside the laptop through the openings on the bottom and on the sides. It’s nice as a precaution measure, but it might not work if your laptop already has a problem and the heatsink is completely clogged.
  1. Open the laptop case, so you can access the CPU fan and the heatsink. In some cases you can access the heatsink through the latch on the bottom of the laptop. Sometimes (for example Toshiba Satellite A70/A75) you have to open the laptop case all the way down.
  2. Carefully disconnect the fan cables on the system board and remove the fan. If the fan makes unusual sound when it spins (grinding sound), I would recommend to replace the fan.
  3. Clean the fan and the heatsink with compressed air.
  4. I would also recommend removing old thermal grease from the CPU and applying new grease for better heat conductivity.

HALF SCREEN


Most likely is the LCD itself as the problem. I would suggest taking that into Geek Squad to have them ship it off and repaired for you.

You should upgrade your RAM memory. Check with the owners manual and purchase RAM module. Install the RAM module in the memory slot provided at the bottom of your laptop.

You should also check the speed of the internet connection you use.

TOSHIBA SDR6372 WONT DRIVE


They must have meant motherboard drive connector. s the connector that the drive attaches to. Which the connector itself should not need drivers. It should not be the connector either, especially since the error coming back is software, not hardware.

Overheating and switch off


Maintain adequate ventilation. If your PC is crowded between your desk and the wall, there?s no room for proper air circulation. Use compressed air to remove dust and debris around the fan and laptop openings. It could also be the CPU fan has gone out and is not spinning properly if at all. Try the air first. If it still overheats, take it to a certified tech and have him look at it. Don't continue to use the laptop for extended periods until you fix this problem. Heat can cause serious damage to your laptop. Then your talking big money.
