Toshiba Satelite laptop shutting down all by itself

I have a Toshiba Satelite laptop that was purchased brand new in July 2008. Now it's shutting down all by itself. I have free AVG that is continually up and scans daily and I keep all the windows firewall and security up as well. when I try to get it to come on/up it makes a loud blowing noise on the right side of the computer, sounding like it's around my cd drive...not the fan because it is housed on the left. Any ideas as to what could be going on? I'm sorry I don't have more specifics on the system as I can't get it to come up in order to get the info.

How to reset hard drive password, toshiba sattlite reset forgotten hard drive password,satelite. L655D S5093


Chris Hingee is absolutely correct. Even if you reset the laptop bios password, you will not be able to reset the hard drive bios password. That old hard drive is your new paper weight after you purchase a new hard drive.

I have a defective motherboard for a toshiba satelite 14.1 laptop model m305d-s4830 part a000023270. Where can I get a used or refurbished part under $125 u.s.. I only had this computer for three months...


I've had the same problem for almost a year now. We need to write to Toshiba to recall the motherboard on this model. I was told it's too expensive to purchase as it is almost the price of a brand new laptop.

I have a toshiba satelite and it keeps freezing every 10 minutes


Sounds like the Processor fan is not working.When you turn the unit on , llisten for the fan . If it is not spinning, it is bad. The reason it shuts down is to protect your unit from further damage. Let me know what model, and I will see if I have the service manual or the instructions on how to replace the fan.

No battery detected reading on my toshiba laptop


If the laptop was purchased new in November, 2008, the laptop is still under warranty. So, contact Toshiba for repair or replacement.

If not purchased new in November, the battery would probably need to be replaced. Hope this helps.

Overheating


hi thanks for using fixya!

What is the model of your laptop? Is it brand new?
If its brand new, I suggest that you bring it back to your retailer to resolve the issue. If its old, I suggest that you should check the battery pack, perhaps you need to change the battery, or it should be send for maintenance, especially if you have for more that 2 years.

Good luck! If you need further assistance, let me know!

pls rate me positively! thanks!

Satelittle A75-S229 shut off


This is a oh-so-common problem for the Satelite A70/75 and it usually is caused by one of two things. If you google "Toshiba Satelite heatsink overheating" and/or "Toshiba Satelite DC plug" you will get a very extensive list of options to repair the problem.
This should take care of the problem and if it doesn't please let me know - it will mean I have something new to look forward to!
