Restart every 5 minutes for too much heat


If the fan and the heat sink are clogged with dirt the cpu processor is overheating and will usually shut the laptop down. Try a can of compressed air and clean the fan "usually on the bottom" next use the can on the open vents on the back of the laptop, give it a good blast. if it works it will be a quick fix and should be a warning to have it properly cleaned and serviced by a computer professional.

I have a Toshiba Satellite A215 and it keeps shutting down and getting hot. I don't think the internal fan is working. Can this be fixed and is it expensive?


Replacing the fan on the CPU or the GPU, Graphics card, is actually very simple and the fan will run about $20 to $25 depending on what type of fan you get and where. Aside from a new fan you will need a small tube of heat sink compound. The fan just clips on to the CPU. Make sure you get a fan that is designed for your CPU type or it will not fit properly. For instance, if you have a P-3 CPU you can't fit it with a P-2 Chip or P-4 chip, they won't mount correctly and subsequently they won't work. When you go to Best Buy or the computer shop your to buy your part tell them what type of CPU you have and that you want the cooling fan and the heat Sink Compound to mount it with. They will be able to direct you to the proper fan Type. Also, while you have it opened up take the opportunity to use canned Air to blow the dust out of the machine. If you are doing what is called Over Clocking it is important that you know you may have burned the CPU out as this causes the CPU to heat up more than it would if you just had it installed for the proper speed. The old fan will be difficult to remove because the old heat sink compound will have formed a bond between the fan heat sink and the CPU itself. If you have to do any prying to remove the old fan make sure you do so carefully and make sure you clean the old heat sink compound off the CPU before you try mounting the new fan. When you apply the new Heat sink compound you want to place the compound in the center of the CPU and let the heat sink spread the compound out in a thin layer. This compound needs to be spread evenly so it forms a good bond between the Heat sink and the CPU itself to properly transfer the heat from the CPU to the heat sink so the fan can properly cool the CPU.

I have a power problem with my Toshiba Tecra S2. It lost power while I was playing Solitaire. All lights on the front are off. Plugging out and in again did lit the lights. But when I hit the power button...


When a computer shuts down by itself and will not start up again straight away, until it has cooled down. Then this is an overheating problem.
This is caused by a faulty fan and/or the fan and heat-sink assembly is clogged with dust.
If the computer is not on a flat surface then the vents may not have clear for good ventilation.
Check the fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
Clean and vacuum the dust from the fan and heat-sink assembly.

CPU Upgrade


You pulled the processor out of your laptop ... that was a brave move ... generally laptop boards are fully integrated so there is very few options on changing the processor ... also because of the extreme heating conditions the heat sink bonding is very critical ... make sure you replace this properly or you will have overheating issues in the future ...
