Unless you know what you are doing,it is not advisable to open your laptop up.
Try using compressed air from a aerosol can,they can do wonders.This can be applied @ the exhaust vent,but not for too long.Make sure the laptop is "Off" & "Unplugged" from Mains Power.Don't forget to remove battery & blow away dust from the compartment.
Also,every so often,turn your laptop over & tap lightly on bottom to remove & foreign bits caught inbetween the keys.

Hi there is a toolbar coming up the whole time saying,,,,,WARNING a problem with the cooling system has been detected, please turn of the computer and return for service immediately


Try to fix the problem without taking the laptop apart first but I would recommend using a powerful air compressor instead of a vacuum cleaner.

Welcome to FixYa! Based on the error you have received, this means that the cooling fan of your laptop needs to be cleaned and checked at. This is a common problem with any toshiba laptop. I suggest checking the heatsink of your laptop. If the CPU heatsink is not clogged with dust and lint completely, you can use canned air and just blow it inside the laptop through the openings on the bottom and on the sides. It's nice as a precaution measure, but it might not work if your laptop already has a problem and the heatsink is completely clogged.

  1. Open the laptop case, so you can access the CPU fan and the heatsink. In some cases you can access the heatsink through the latch on the bottom of the laptop. Sometimes (for example Toshiba Satellite A70/A75) you have to open the laptop case all the way down.
  2. Carefully disconnect the fan cables on the system board and remove the fan. If the fan makes unusual sound when it spins (grinding sound), I would recommend to replace the fan.
  3. Clean the fan and the heatsink with compressed air.
  4. I would also recommend removing old thermal grease from the CPU and applying new grease for better heat conductivity.
  5. If your laptop is still under warranty, you can take it to any Toshiba Authorize Service Provider and fix the problem at no charge to you.
Hope this helps! Thank you for using FixYa!

Toshiba laptop will keep shuting off


It is because of the laptop overheating problem. This is a very common problem with and could be easily fixed if you clean the heat sink. If the CPU heatsink is not clogged with dust and lint completely, you can use canned air and just blow it inside the laptop through the openings on the bottom and on the sides. It’s nice as a precaution measure, but it might not work if your laptop already has a problem and the heatsink is completely clogged.
  1. Open the laptop case, so you can access the CPU fan and the heatsink. In some cases you can access the heatsink through the latch on the bottom of the laptop. Sometimes (for example Toshiba Satellite A70/A75) you have to open the laptop case all the way down.

TOSHIBA M35X-S149????????? charger went inside the computer how do i fix it??? any help will be greatly appriciated


when you say the charger went inside the laptop that the piece that you plug into felll in. You have to open the case, get your soldering iron out and hot. Once you take off the bottom portion of the case you may need to remove the board to get to the plug piece. Once you get there you need to soldier it back on.

When i turn my laptop on it says password. i dont know it


This is a password for the BIOS. To override this and reset to "NO" password you will need to disconnect the power cord, remove the laptop battery and remove the clock battery inside the laptop for,,,say 10 minutes. This last step will require you to open the laptop. In Toshiba laptops, it is generally located near the RAM slots, and can be replaced without opening the whole laptop casing. Please find the exact location and replacement instruction from the Manual.

Good Luck
