Most likely the fan has gone bad or the vent slots are all clogged up with dust. get a can off dust off and blow out the vents.

How can i set my toshiba satellite a215 s7422 back to factory settings?


Toshiba laptops from mid 2007 onwards dont have a recovery disc supplied with a purchase of a laptop. Instead, Toshiba has added a hidden partion on the hard drive which contains the same files on a recovery cd / dvd.

To reinstall your laptop to the factory settings / "out of the box" settings, please follow these steps. It worked for me, and should work for you.

ALL DATA WILL BE ERASED ON YOUR HARD DRIVE IF YOU PROCEED. YOU WILL NEED TO ENSURE THAT YOU HAVE THE POWER ADAPTER PLUGGED IN. DO NOT SWITCH OFF OR RESTART YOUR COMPUTER DURING THIS PROCESS.


1) Hold down the power button for 10 (ten) seconds to switch off your machine.

Please note: Holding down the power button on the machine forces it to switch off. Any unsaved data will be lost.

2) Press and hold the 0 (zero) key and at the same time, tap the power button once to switch on your notebook.

3) When the machine Starts beeping; release the 0 key.

4) When prompted by the warning screen; select Yes to continue with the system recovery.

5) Select Recovery of Factory Default Software; click Next.

6) Select Recover to out-of-box state. Click Next again.

7) Click Next to Start recovery.

Activating crisis mode for toshiba satellite a215-s7422


If you mean safe mode, as soon as you turn on the computer start pressing the F8 button about once a second. That should bring you to the safe mode option.

My s7422 has a problem were for no apparent reason the screen goes out. the only fix seems to a hard shutdown and restart.


Sometimes, It happens that computer goes into sleep mode and never comes back.

1. Update all the drives to latest version.
2. Also check the computer with no power saving options and see if the problem recurs

Screen goes black and no response. have to hold the power button till it shuts down then restart. Does this at least once everytime i am working


Could be overheating due to dust.  You could also try plugging in an external monitor to determine if it is a connection issue with the screen.

I hit a button or something and it made my toshiba computer into a tablet or somthing. i dont know how to make it go back into a normal mode. its toshiba a215


Is your screen sideways or upside down? If so, use this:

Just like a ctrl-alt-del except
press ctrl-alt-up arrow
ctrl-alt-down arrow flips it upside down.
ctrl-alt-left and right arrows will rotate the screen sideways.
