Question about Toshiba Satellite A75-S226 Notebook
Hi. i bought my computer august 2004. i never had a problem with it until early this year. it started to suddenly turn off. i just read a blog http://www.hardwareanalysis.com/content/topic/38964/?o=100 and found out that it was some heating issue. i have tried putting a fan behind it, propping it up about an inch from the table - but all that failed. will toshiba still do something about this?
Put it on a cooling plate with fans available at most computer stores. Solved the over heating
Stopped the overheating but now the battery will not charge completely and the plug for the AC connection is finicky four years later.

Use can air and shoot it thru the vents.

Well everything said is fine, but it is a manufacturing defect...two cooling fan at the surface of the laptop works as a vacuum everyre singly dust it can and closes the vent.
In a short run you can open and clean and do what you want, but in longer run it will destroy the power supply plus/or the motherboard. If you go to a local repair store they will replace the motherboard and charge you for it, same thing happens if you go to Toshiba repair centre. Technically, since it is a manufacturing defect they (toshiba) should replace the parts or call back the notebook.
Even if you replace the motherboard the issue has not been solved, this will happpen again and you will keep paying for the repair.
