    I have a Toshiba Satellite a15-S129 and the same problem. I removed the cover to it to see if it was dusty, but it's not. Yet it is noisy and I fear that my cpu will get too hot. Of course, setting ur laptop upon anything that isn't well ventilated is not a good idea, I wonder if it may effect it in a bad way.

If it makes a either a griding noise or sounds like it's going to take flight, you may need to have the fan replaced. Even after dust collects in the motherboard compartment, or somehwere by the fans, dirt and oils tend to get stuck in the fan and ruin it. Have the fan replaced before it creates more damage.

How do I change a keyboard on a satellite A85-S107 laptop?

1. Take out the battery and AC adapter, unplugged from the wall, enusre the laptop is fully powered off.
2. Remove those screws with a T-8 or Phillips screwdriver.
3. Turn the laptop back over and open it up. Check and see if the Toshiba Satellite A85-S107 keyboard is tucked under any plastic pieces. If so, find them if those plastic pieces are screwed into anything, and unfasten them as well. If not, it probably uses clamps that can easily be removed.
4. Remove the plastic pieces carefully.
5. Unscrew any screws at the top (if necessary) and remove the keyboard itself from top to bottom. You'll notice that the keyboard is connected with a thin, but wide, data cable to the system board at the bottom.
6. Disconnect the data cable attachment of the keyboard which will sever all the remaining attachments of the laptop keyboard with the laptop computer motherboard. To remove this cable, you have to just carefully pull it out from the socket to which it is attached. Then you can lift out the entire keyboard out of the laptop.
7. Take the new Toshiba Satellite A85-S107 keyboard out of the plastic and place it inside with the right orientation, attach the data cable.
8. Refasten the keyboard in place at the top.
9. If you had to remove any plastic pieces, carefully snap them back in and replace any screws you had to remove.
10. Turn the laptop over and replace all of the keyboard screws.
11. Put the laptop battery back in place and switch it on to check Toshiba Satellite A85-S107 keyboard functionality. If everything has gone according to plan, you should be ready to type away!
