Question about Toshiba Satellite Pro M15-S405 Notebook

2 Answers

Fan replacement Toshiba Satellite Pro Laptop M15-S406 I need to replace the fan. I've done this on other laptops, but I can't figure out how to get at this one. Anyone know or have a shop manual? It looks like you need to do it from above -- ie take off the keyboard. I took out all the screws I could find and unhooked the latches in front but the unit was still attached somehow at the center front of the keyboard so I gave up. Thanks for any suggestions. David

Re: Fan replacement

Yeah, you are correct. You must remove the keyboard (and about every other screw) Just keep track of where each went (i used shotglasses or small bowls with the type of screw written underneath them on paper) to keep track.

Toshiba satellite pro m15 s405 video card replacement

Probably impossible. Most laptop graphics chips are soldered directly to the motherboard requiring a new motherboard if one dies, and very few are actual "cards." That being said, it looks like your's is a nVIDIA GeForce4 420 Go which might be a card. I'll do some research and find out.

Fan issue

Here is a disassembly guide for your laptop:

Not every screw is required to be removed to take out the keyboard but to replace a fan you most likely will have to since the machine needs to be entirely opened up.

Usb ports on a toshiba satellite pro m15-S405

You can if you have good soldering skills. The welds are located on the opposite side of the motherboard. Just go to or ebay to find a raw module to replace it. Otherwise you must replace the motherboard. Remember, heat the work not the solder, and use low watt if lots of smaller circuits are closeby.
