Toshiba A65 laptop

I have a a65, the heat sink was clogged, i opened the laptop and cleaned it.But while dismantling the laptop, the connector attached to the MB for the case fan (a tiny white plastic with two small feet soldered to the MB) came free. I tried soldering it back but now the case fan does not turn on when the temperature rises, and the laptop shuts off.
I know its a minor problem but how to diagnose the fan, which is temperature controlled.
Can I fix it or any suggestions?
soldering the feet to the MB should work but why is it not working??
Please help

Toshiba A65-S1062 - This laptop overheats and shuts down.

I bet that you had your laptop on all the time.
Your heat sink is saturated with dust and grit.
you may have to open up the unit and use a can of dust remover to clean the fins on the heat sink out. it is causing your CPU to shut down bucause it is becoming overheated.
Happy Fixing =)

The hard drive should work fine thats a standard IDE drive.

For the overheating problem you probably just need to clean the fans with a can of compressed air. That series gets clogged pretty easily. Just blow from the bottom of the laptop where you see the fan towards the outlet in the rear.

You can boot from a USB floppy drive to do a bios upgrade - you can get USB floppies for $20 or so.

Or i have loaded a bios from a bootable CD (you can make one from Roxio or Sonic record now if you make a bootable floppy first - get one Here:
