Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S2276 Notebook

Overheating / Freezing Issues

I just bought this Toshiba Satellite A135 S2276. The fan works ok but it still feels very hot on the touchpad and just to the left of it. When it gets this way, the whole thing just freezes on me and the only way round is to disconnect the power cord and battery, leave to cool and boot up after about 10 minutes. With the fan working ok (I think), what could be the problem. Now, I live in a country in which Toshiba does not have an authorized dealer, so warranty issues are out. Any help out there? Sunil

    Did exactly what you said, did not make a difference. I had a guy in town tell me to change the power adaptor that came with the Laptop.
    Well, that reduced the heat you think it could be a question of bad power adaptors?

Buy a can of compressed air and thouroughly clean out your fan vents, etc. Put something under the laptop and see if it runs cooler with the space underneath. If I had your laptop in front of me I would probably test the CPU and at the least clean and put new thermal paste. Did you recently increase the memory? Many times an increase in memory will cause the laptop to run hot. Check to see what you have for RAM, if two chips take one out and run laptop and test heat levels, if no change, swap out the chips and try again. If all else fails try

    The problem with heat issues in laptops is that there are so many different causes and you need to eliminate them one by one. We see alot of AC adaptor failures as well as battery failures around the second or third year. Toshiba is notorious for heat problems and power up issues. Hope it all works out for you. Good Luck. If I can be of further assistance just email me.

Everytime i turned ON my toshiba satellite a135-s2276 then it always turned off after 5seconds

You laptop could be overheating.
When the CPU overheats then it will shutdown (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 this problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged withdust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use acan of compressed air to do this.

My laptop is going extremely slow is there any thing i can do to fix it

If it feels hot then I'd recommend cleaning it out with compressed air (something you should do either way)

Backup your important files, format the drive and reinstall Windows.

If it's STILL slow then there could be a problem with the hard drive itself. The A135 is pretty notorious for overheating though so start there. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Toshibba laptop a135-s2276 ,my mother bords smd chip does not work so display of screen does not appear

The problem is well known witht this model Toshiba - the problem is the fan stops working and then hence shuts down to prevent overheating - it does not take long once the laptop is hot. Without replacing the fan just reboot the laptop until you hear the fan start again on reboot.

Main reason i computer being occupied by active applications those are running in background (discreetly). You can reduce the quantity of startup items by using MSCONFIG utility. Also you can change the performance settings. (You can choose best performance instead of best appearence). Some features of the operating system can be stopped to increase the performance. For example turning of system restore option sometimes increases the performance 10-15%. Also performing periodical (weekly recommended) instant maintenance by using disk clean up tool. I have given some basic options if you need further details please post your questions.

Good Luck
