The reason why it overheats is because you're using a AMD processor which tend to heat up much faster then Intel processors
I recommend you to downclock the processor speed .2 Ghz and buy a notebook cooling pad.
They cost anywhere from $10-$60 and stop your laptop from overheating.
Also it's not good to have your laptop on too long (5 or 6 hrs. is max).
To clean the fan your best bet is to use an compressed can of air. Some people like to use a vacuum, but it can give you problems with static electricity. If you are going to open up the case, be sure to look into safety measures, like wearing a safety bracelet. Even when unplugged, computers can be dangerous. The heatsink is located on top of the processor inside the computer

Toshiba A205-S5809 Wont power on


Try another cord/charger with the EXACT same power specs. If you have a multimeter, verify DC voltage at the AC jack plug. If the AC jack, in the laptop, has been pulled, damaged, it's may have a loose connection. You didn' say if ANY LED's, battery charge, work? If the battery is charged and it doesn't start on battery only, then you have other issues. It may need a ride to a Qualified Computer Tech.

Hi. I have a Toshiba laptop a205 s5812. The problem is when I start it with AC adaptor connected it wont start. If I start it without connecting the adaptor it works fine, but once on if I connect the...


Although this may only be a temporary solution, try connecting the adapter but taking the battery out. Now try turning on the laptop. It should work. Unfortunately, this means that you will need to always connect the laptop to the wall when you want to use it.

Wont start up has power but when i start just times out and goes off


Battery is not fully charging or has failed. (replace and recharge) Also, CPU may be overheating/failing. This requires thorough cleaning and vacuuming of the laptop. I would suggest professional service. Disassembling a laptop is not for the first timer by any means! Finally, there is a chance that the power connector at the rear of the laptop is beginning to loosen at the PCB where it is soldered in. This is a common failure point, and again, sadly requires professional repair. As you can see, all roads pretty much lead to a professional close-up evaluation.

My toshiba satellite A205-S5804 shut off after 20 minute and i upgrade my system to windows 7 but i do not know why it shut off after 20 minute?


If you leave it on without using it, it will turn off to save battery. This can be changed in Start > Control Panel > Power Options.

Otherwise, it is overheating. But this is unlikely. Try the Power Options. If you can't find it, type Power Options in Start Search box.

Toshiba satellite a205-S5847 cuts off while working


You could have an overheating problem, The CPU shuts down when it overheats and the laptop won't bootup until the CPU has cooled down.
The overheating problems are caused by a faulty fan or the heatsink/fan assembly is clogged with dust which prevents proper cooling.
Check the fan to see it it spins freely, if not (it has a bearing problem) then replace the fan. Also remove and vacuum the dust off the fan and heatsink.

Toshiba Laptop A205-S4577 won't start up


If the battery is removed, it should still start up with the charger connected. A lot of laptops develope problems with the jack where the power supply plugs in, from constantly plugging & unplugging the charger. The jack in the back of the computer is probably bad.
