This is a laptop computer?

THis is probably a simple heating problem. if it is, you'll have to replace or otherwise repair the heatsink, and maybe the CPU as well.

In general, if this is still under warranty, your best bet is probably to just return it to toshiba for repair/replacement.

I would NOT reccomend opening the case on an in-warranty laptop.

However, in case this ISN'T a heating problem, or if you need a temporary workaround... these ideas MIGHT work. they won't be permanent solutions, though.

1. try setting your bios, and your windows settings, to the options that use the least power.  less power = less heat.

2. If you deliberatly overclocked your cpu at some point, reset it to normal speed. or even less-then-normal speed.

3.  are you certain this isn't just a power problem, or a corrupt operating system?  you might want to try reinstalling the os, and running the computer from an AC outlet, maybe even with the battery removed

Toshiba equium m40x


this may caused by hard disk problem. first remove (disconnect) hard disk. then try to enter bios setup. if the problem persist, find a jumper clip named 'bios reset' in mother board near front panel connectors. the default jumper position is 1and 2. now change the clip into 2and3 - power on - wait 5 seconds - power off - reset jumper to 1and2- thats all connect hard disk- check again the bios setting.

Problem with Toshiba Equium Laptop which is switching itself off. even when connected to mains supply Is this a problem with the switch or power supply? Hope you can help thanks


If the laptop shuts down and won't boot up straight away, then the problem could be an overheating CPU problem. It could be a faulty fan and/or the fan and heatsink assembly is clogged with dust.
Check the fan and if it has stopped spinning then replace it and if the fan and heatsink is clogged with dust, loosen the dust and remove it.

I ve formated my Toshiba Equium M40X-103 and on start up i can't see the display. i'm guessing i need to download some drivers but how can i instal without any display?


Attach an external monitor. Even without drivers the lcd should at least lite up with post info If in hibernate mode holding down backspace when power up sometimes works. My guess is if the cover open switch is ok and you still see nothing it may be the lcd inverter or the fl tube, Also look very close at the screen from a slight angle if you see stuff it is one of the above problems gl

TOSHIBA EQUIUM WIRELESS PROBLEM


You might deleted your driver to wireless connection or you perhaps upgraded Service Pack to higher version. If your wireless connection will work on lower SP then that device won't work or vice versa.
Another thing, try to check connections. Click menu and look for connections and try to enable wireless connections.

Thanks

Equium M40X freezes


Hi, it seems your experiencing a overheat issue. At least one fan inside your PC has stopped working. The PC monitors internal heat, when the PC reaches a certain temperature it will shut down & or freeze. Chances are it's the CPU fan.
