Question about Toshiba Satellite (K000004080) Motherboard

1 Answer

Toshiba Satellite temperature related freeze

From a cool state, the computer will boot as usual and work perfectly for a max of about 5 min, and freeze. trying to turn back on will freeze right at the toshiba screen, and sometimes constant internal beep. if let cool, however, the first time will run all the way just fine again.

from a service center recommended by the toshiba support line, a new fan was installed, but didnt fix the problem, so they said new motherboard.

agree, disagree?

whole new thing?
maybe just a bad solder, fixable?

thank you gurus

Toshiba M55-S139 Laptop randomly freezes without warning.

you have a diry fan try cleaning the fan motor and spray a slight amount of wd 40 on the cooling fan and it should take care of your problem, if not go buy a usb driven laptop fan and try that, it is heating up and is the fan for the cpu or the memory stick getting hot. the fan costs 15 dollars so it's worth it to make the computer work and it will keep it cooler anyway.

Hi, I have a new Toshiba Satelite L500 laptop. From the moment I started to work with it, following message began to appear: Warning: A problem with the cooling system has been detected. Please turn off...

first you should install an independent system temperature monitor like speed fan and check if your computer temperature is ok .If the temp is ok then it is not as much of a worry but more of an annoyance if it shows the computer is hot take it back to service immediately either way they should fix the problem under warranty.
I hope this helps Andrew A

1. boot computer in safe mode (pressing f8 key during startup will give you choice)
2. log in as administrator
3. press "start"

5. select "users"
6 . remove password

Boots up windows runs for 5 mins then system shuts

You may have a cooling problem (with older computers), if you hear your fan running excessively and then it shuts down on you. Otherwise it is more likely a hard drive issue.

My toshiba Satellite A135-S2276 boots up normally and then before it freezes I hear a static sound coming from the speakers and then computer does nothing at all

the problem seems to be related to static shock affecting toshiba mousepads, speaker grills, and USB ports. It's a common problem, and it is affecting my Toshiba laptop too. Here's an article I came across trying to diagnose the frequent freeze-ups:

My Toshiba Satellite M45-169 keeps freezing

1. The battery on the motherboard has died. Replace battery.
2. The BIOS is corrupt, reflash BIOS.

Most likely #1, very rarely #2. Pop out the battery on the motherboard and replace it, after the first time you boot up your computer, go into BIOS and set everything the way it should be for your computer (usually just time and date) and then after each sequential time you reboot, that should take care of your problem.
