Question about Toshiba Satellite A205-S4639 Notebook
My Toshiba Satellite A205 will not always shut down or restart properly. Sometimes when I shut down my laptop, it will look like it's shutting down normally, but then the screen will just go black. However, the actual computer will still be on and I am unable to restart it or get it to do anything until I remove the battery. After I remove the battery, it will start normally. Though I know removing the battery while it is still running is bad for the machine.
Anyone else have this problem and knows what to do?
I use Windows Vista.
possible setting issue.
If you Go to,
start, control panel, power options, (classic view)
have a look in the power options there, set as needed. there is a few, check them all out.
use disc cleanup,defragmenter, delete temp internet files, in tools on menu bar , delete history,
update the Operating system at Microsoft.
update virus protection and run a full scan.
you should be good if no hardware problems.

I decided to use a shop vac to suck the dust out and it worked. I tested it by letting the machine run all night and it worked. It's been a couple of weeks now and I'm glad I did it. I was ready to take the machine apart, now I'm glad I didn't. I'd suggest you use a heavy duty shop vac to clean out the fan and heat sinks first.I agree. Try to fix the problem without taking the laptop apart first but I would recommend using a powerful air compressor instead of a vacuum cleaner.
If your laptop is still under warranty, you can take it to any Toshiba Authorize Service Provider and fix the problem at no charge to you.
