Question about Toshiba Satellite P305D-S8828 Notebook PC

1 Answer

My laptop gets far to hot and then shuts down. I have gone through 3 cooling pads. They seem to burn up and die. Can anything be done to reduce the heat? Can the clocking speed be dialed back to reduce heat?

Yes you can set to cool temperature instead of high performance to reduce heat. It depends on the operating system what the steps will be. Some options may be there in the BIOS to reduce the clock rate of your CPU. I will suggest to put your laptop on a hard surface instead of your bed, fabric or somewhere heat can gather and make sure there are enough space on the bottom to make sure air flow into the laptop. If there are feets on the bottom which can be folded then stand it up so there are more space for the air to flow into the bottom of the laptop. It might be a good idea to check the fans and vents and see whether there is a lot of dust on it. Blow them out maybe a little bit hard because you may need to unassemble the laptop and get to the interior. To use a static-free vacuum may help to clean the dust on the vents from outside. There are some software you can use to cool your laptop also such as speed step, and cool and quite which I found on somebody's post.

Yeah it is a good idea to tune down the performance and resolution of video processing programs. Sometimes you can open task manager and see what are the most processer comsuming processes. Some of them may be from some background third party application and not necessary so you can disable them from your startup options.

Burning laptop smell Asus x53e


The cooling fan is attached to a heat sync over the CPU. When dirt or dust collect, the fan tends to slow down and the heating becomes intense. Sooner or later, the CPU will shut down and the system will die. Clean with a can of air to remove the debvris.

My compaq presario become very hot within few miniute and then it is automatically shut down.what is its harm and how this problem can be solve.


It is overheating. It may be a few things, check the vents and make sure they are not blocked by anything (sometimes dust can block them as well). Also listen and feel at the vents to make sure you fell air blowing out (if not the fans may have died out).
The fact that it shut down means it is trying to save the components before they burn out. You should be able to turn it back on once it cools down enough. You can also use a fan to blow air through the vents to speed the process. If it continues to shut down, it will burn out eventually if not repaired. You can get by for a while by using a fan base (you sit the laptop on it and it has fans blowing air on it to keep it cool). You can purchase this at any bestbuy or staples.

My toshiba get really hot and burn the skin on my legs


If the internal fan is working, you should sense air moving in or out of vents. If it isn't working, the unit will soon die if the fan is not replaced.
You may need a cooling pad under the unit such as are shown here:
Cooling pads
If they are powered by the laptop itself (via USB for example), they will shorten the run-time of the battery.

My dv9000 locks up after it gets hot. What can I do?


A laptop locks up or shuts down when it get very hot. The CPU shuts down (thermal overload) when it overheats and will not boot up until it has cooled down. If this problem is not fixed, eventually the CPU will fail.
This problem could be caused be a faulty CPU fan and/or the CPU and heat sink assemble is clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if the fan blade spins freely (it may have a seized bearing), if not replace the fan. If the fan and heatsink is clogged with dust, clean and remove the dust.
If additional cooling is required and there are ventilation grills on the bottom of the laptop, then purchase a laptop cooling pad. Place the laptop on the cooling pad, these pads have fans that direct air into the grills at the bottom of the laptop.

I have a sony VAIO laptop which seems to be overheating and then shutting down. It boots up as normal once cool but will continue with shutting down if not cooled down sufficently.


If this has recently started, vacuum the vents or blow air through the vents. You can also buy cooler pads that the laptop sits on and plugs to the usb to run 1, 2 or 3 fans to cool the outside of the base.( on e-bay £10-$17 or so)

Acer 5570 southbridge overheats and shutsdown


well,if you r able to get to bios then check power managment sction and reduce CPU speed and try to deactivate one of the peripherals that is responsible of thi shorting out= over warming.


as long as the southbridge chip over warms every time you turn on you laptop thats mean the S.B is facing a shorting out on it IC.

you can clean underneath/surround it.
