Toshiba l655 s5150

My daughters Toshiba L655 - S5150 keeps overheating and shutting down. Occasionally the fan will work and most of the time it wont work. Is this just a fan replacement,or do I need to look elsewhere ? I know - toshiba laptops are **** - I'm well informed now.

It is actually made by HP and they do suffer from over heating issues. The probable cause is either dried up heat sink compound between the processor and the radiator, a clogged radiator - clean with a vacuum cleaner, or a faulty fan. None of which is a big deal. Fans are available through flea bay at very reasonable prices and the rest is just maintainance.

Hi ibrown812...

Sounds like when you had the computer apart you may have forgotten or knocked loose one of the wires going to the lcd screen or the lcd backlight...check for that condition.
If it was working fine before then that almost has to be the reason the lcd is not working

SOURCE: no display on screen when starting up

You probably have a virus or something. Best way is to insert a window recovery disk and see if your laptop screen comes on.

SOURCE: toshiba 650 laptop keys a,b,,n,7 do not work

The trackers on the keyboard which control those keys may be faulty, so a replacement keyboard is probably the best option
