Question about Toshiba Satellite A205-S5879 Laptop

1 Answer

It crashed and now it automatically shutdown after a minute about

I have a toshiba satellite a210 laptop, it crashed and now it does not let me install the recovery software. It just shutdown on me in 1 minute about. The fan does not spin and the bottom of the laptop feels hot. Is it the heatsink got clogged and I need a new fan to ventilate the CPU. It won't be the CPU right? Thanks for the help

    Hi Joe,
    First thanks again. Yes the fan was cluttered with dust and I have remove it. Now it doesn't feel overheated though the fan is not running. Does it mean it is a faulty fan and I need to replace it?

The fan may be cluttered with dust. Clean it. Then turn the unit on and watch to see if the fan does indeeed work. If it does not, shut the unit down till you get a replacement fan. The fact that the unit shuts down is a saftey feature to keep your Proceesor from being damaged.
If cleaning it works, your processor should be ok.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
