Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S2276 Notebook
When i say hot i mean smoking hot, and then shuts down and returns to the black log on screen.
You are running into a CPU overheat issue.
1. can you feel or hear the cooling fan come on at all? If so try and use compressed air can to clean it out.. they get tremendously dirty. You can also try a vacuum hose, but cover nozzle with hand and only hold next to cooling fan outlet and nowehre else with laptop off and unplugged. Dont get near keys or other parts as will damage. Dont use SHOP VAC either.
2. If Cooling fan is NOT Coming on you can try a laptop cooling pad. these are external units by Targus and other companies that have cooling fans to supplement a laptop units cooling fan. You can try this to see if airflow is your problem.
3. If you recently ran encryption software, a new antivirus program, or upgraded to Windows 7 it is possible that your culprit is the unit is not cycling. Meaning the hard drive is continuously being accessed and the CPU is in constant service... this can cause overheating as well.
