Question about Toshiba Satellite Laptop Cooler

1 Answer

Crashing Laptop I have a toshiba Satellite A100-225.  specs @, Since I bought it the caseing has got very hot underneath. I did emaul Toshiba but had no reply so I thought this was natural. However, 14 months on and it has begun to freeze up. Now I have to turn it off bye unplugging it and removing the battery. I then have to wait about 30 secs before rebooting.  I seriously need this machine for work. Is there anything I can do to sort it or do I need to inform my extended warranty homecare people? Thank you. Roy Millington

Re: Crashing Laptop

If its the case of the overheating is becoming worse then
a quick fix is to go and buy one of these cans of air duster
and blast the cooling vents and heat fins

i regularly fix a toshiba lap top of a friends and the dust build up is un-real

after so long it just freezes.4359f1d.jpg the picture is inside the heat sink you can see the dust build up
here after 2 months

hope this helps you out

Why My fan is runing to often? I have Toshiba Laptop satellite L645

You need to get pressurized air and blow the vents to remove dust particles causing over heat. Or if possible remove keyboard to expose cooling fan and chip and use pressurized air to blow off dust

My Toshiba Satellite becomes very hot when I use Skype and I hear that cooler works very hard and then at last computer just turn off.. and then I need to wait awile to wurn it on again... what to do?

Did you try to clean the FAN of the processor? Try to clean it because the dust is blocking the airpath that`s why you laptop is overheating and shutting down.

Hi there is a toolbar coming up the whole time saying,,,,,WARNING a problem with the cooling system has been detected, please turn of the computer and return for service immediately

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.

Welcome to FixYa! Based on the error you have received, this means that the cooling fan of your laptop needs to be cleaned and checked at. This is a common problem with any toshiba laptop. I suggest checking the heatsink of your laptop. If the CPU heatsink is not clogged with dust and lint completely, you can use canned air and just blow it inside the laptop through the openings on the bottom and on the sides. It's nice as a precaution measure, but it might not work if your laptop already has a problem and the heatsink is completely clogged.

  1. Open the laptop case, so you can access the CPU fan and the heatsink. In some cases you can access the heatsink through the latch on the bottom of the laptop. Sometimes (for example Toshiba Satellite A70/A75) you have to open the laptop case all the way down.
  2. Carefully disconnect the fan cables on the system board and remove the fan. If the fan makes unusual sound when it spins (grinding sound), I would recommend to replace the fan.
  3. Clean the fan and the heatsink with compressed air.
  4. I would also recommend removing old thermal grease from the CPU and applying new grease for better heat conductivity.
  5. 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.
Hope this helps! Thank you for using FixYa!

I have a toshiba 2065cds laptop. It has a pcmcia slot. Does anyone know if this slot is capable for use for a wireless card?

You can buy cards for video, modem, usb, flash memory and converters to pc card. So yes basically, but a usb dongle is more practical.

System warning pop-up

Are you sure that nothing is overheating? If your cpu fan is turning too slow it won't disipate the heat. Do you have a program showing cpu temp:? I would take the access off the bottom and make sure the cpu fan is clean. If that is not the problem I believe you can turn the warnings off in the bios settings
