Toshiba Tecra A3. Turns itself off after about 30mins. I notice that lights on front left side - 2nd and 4th lights are then off. Have tried removing and replacing battery, different powerpoint, restored system to before problem started. Nothing seems to help.

All points on an overheating - to be sure install and use this

to keep a close watch on the temperatures. To cure that you need to clean the air vents using some q-tips and a can of compressed air. To prevent that from happening again you should use a cooling pad like

    I tried to download the speedfan but my antivirus software said there was a trojan. Do you have a safe version? Also the vents that need to be cleaned - are they on the left had side or are there others elsewhere? (The bottom of the laptop feels very hot.)

    It is a safe version, your antivirus stinks. Here's another link to it

    Yes, the vents are on the side, clean them thoroughly, thier interior also.
    The cooling pad is for the bottom, use it.

I had a Thoshiba Tecra A3 Laptop nwhich is not loading OS


When you hear about the long beep it is a RAM problem which is not totally inserted. You need to check the RAM remove and reinsert it again and try to power on.

Very low speaker volume with all controls maxed


Problem solved... It's embarrassing to report actually. The A3 has a manual volume control knob which sits quite inconspicuous at the front RH side of the case. Just never noticed it...
