Hi there

The overheating is a common issue with Toshiba Satellite notebooks. It happens because the heat sink gets easily clogged with dust and it stops air flow. Instead of buying a cooling pad, try cleaning the heat sink first. Find an air compressor or buy a can of compressed air and blow off the heat sink also you could check if an BIOS update (if available) would increase the fans performance and sensibility.

My toshiba satellite a100 shuts down after 15 minutes. my battery is not working anymore and is in bad condition... even if i plug it with its charger it shuts down after a while.


Hello

It looks like your laptop overheats too much, is it full of dust?

do you still have warrenty left?if so you can just take it back to toshiba and they'll fix it or give you a new one or if the warrenty is expired you can open it up ,clean the dust in it, and apply some new thermal conpound.

If the laptop still shuts down then the problem is that of a failing motherboard,if you still have warranty good for you but if you dont then i suggest you get a new motherboard for your laptop.

Toshiba satelite P105 laptop pc problem: overheats and shuts down automatically. while in use. What are the causes of overheating?


Normal 0 When a CPU chip overheats it shuts down (thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this problem is not fixed, then eventually the CPU chip will fail. This fault is either a faulty fan or the fan and heat sink assembly is clogged with dust. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to fix :-
