Toshiba Satellite M55-S325 turning itself off

My Toshiba Satellite M55-S325 shuts off at will, I thought it was a fan problem,as it was making noise, but I replaced it,I thought it was overheating, as it seemed to cut off more quickly, more as it got hot, or was multi tasking, but now it does it very quickly, even before it boots up, any ideas?
Thanks

    I'm having the same problem, but on an M55-S3315. Have cleaned out the fan as best I can, but can't get the casing off to clean it out completely. Now that it's starting to get warm out it's shutting down more frequently. I currently have a small fan directed at the keyboard which seems to keep it cooler, but it's really hard to work. Also, I have it elevated to increase air flow. This seemed to help for awhile but now isn't doing any good. Thinking I might have to get a new computer and transfer everything before this one dies completely and I can't recover my files.

Hi subji, try running the notebook without the battery connected & just the AC adapter. See if the notebook continues to shut down. It wouldn't hurt to raise the notebook off the table surface anout an inch but check the function of your notebook like I mantioned (without the battery first).
Post back your results.

It sounds like the cooling fan is going bad.. when the cooling fan starts going bad it makes a loud noise and sometimes it doesn't even run. Here's the link for a fan for that specific laptop:

Toshiba m55-s325 battery charging


I would try another power supply, as the one you have may not be providing enough power to both run and charge the laptop.

I need to add RAM to my Toshiba Satellite M55-S3262 notebook, can I do this myself or do I need a authorized service technician?


If you can access the memory module by removing some of the screws at the back of your laptop, you can easily add RAM if there are vacant slots for another RAM in the RAM slot. Ideally, the RAM should be of the same memory capacity as the original RAM installed in your laptop. Just handle the RAM module at the edges so you don't damage the sensitive components. You can avoid this by discharging static electricity from your body by placing your hands on a grounded object.

From what I can tell is that the CPU fan is the problem. The CPU fan is probably what is whining right now, so if you want you can try and replace it. Also if it shuts down frequently, that's probably because the CPU fan isn't cooling your processor adequately, so the processor overheats, and the computer shuts itself down automatically.

Low brightness to no brightness on the m55-s139 toshiba notebook ;what are the possibility fix?


The backlight has probably gone out in your screen. Replacing a LCD screen is fairly easy and can be done alot cheaper yourself rather than paying 3-400 bucks to hire someone to do it.

This ebay page contains the screen you need and instructions on removal and installation for your screen. It also contains the necessary information to make sure you are purchasing the correct screen.

Try unplugging your CPU and wiping any accumulated gunk which may have oxidized there, causing heat buildup. You have, of course, cleaned all the accumulated dust off your fan blades?
