Qosmio F0 My systemboard on Toshiba Qosmio F10 went atfer 14 months and was not worth fixing at £500 in my view. I have had the laptop gathering dust for 2 years and wondered if an alternative systemboard could be used in this laptop as i'm not sure if Toshiba's board can be trusted. Any thoughts

Most Laptop cases are customized to brand and Model. If it difficult to get another motherboard to fit in. Though sometimes successive some models of the same brand of Laptop do use same motherboard.

The bset thing is to sell the carcase n Ebay. Someone outthere mght needs other parts eg LCD, casing of that Laptop.

Take apart


I just blow compressed air through the laptop from all of the vents. I do this every few months and haven't had any problem. Taking a laptop apart isn'y easy, there are lots of different sized screws, and often non-standard screwheads which most people do not have the screw driver to remove them.

Start as far away from the fan output as possible and work your way towards it. It is best to use air from a compressor and NOT a spray can as you need lots of air flow, and lots of air in general. Using a can is fine for blowing a laptop every month or so.

I hear noise coming from the back vents and I think it might be the processor fan. Is there a way to fix/clean it so that noise goes away and do I have to open it from the bottom? This is for Qosmio G25.


You probably need to replace the cooling fan, but you can try cleaning it out first. Get a can of compressed air or use an air compressor to spray pressurized air into the vent to spray dust out. If this doesn't work, you probably need to replace the fan. I actually found a guide for opening up the Qosmio G25 and replacing or cleaning the cooling fan. Check it out:

Qosmio F10 graphics card failure


If you're in the UK you have the law on your side: the Sale of Goods Act protects consumers by requiring goods to be "of merchantable quality". The notorious failure rate of the graphics card on the Toshiba F10 series suggests that this model is faulty by manufacture (have a look on the Toshiba support forums for a few examples in case you need to contact your local Trading Standards Office for support when dealing with Toshiba).

What this means in practice is the machine as sold is not fit for purpose. Don't be fobbed off by "warranty" nonsense either: it is reasonable to expect an expensive laptop to work for seven or eight years, not a mere 12 months. Again, consumer law is on your side. In the first instance your contract is with the retailer, so avoid going direct to Toshiba for as long as you possibly can. Pursue the retailer for a replacement, insisting on your right to be supplied with goods of merchantable quality.

When the original graphics card on the F10 fails, it is replaced by Toshiba service agents with a new motherboard with an integrated Go6600 video card. This puts an extra burden on the battery, reducing its life by 20-25%, so you might push for a replacement battery as well.
