    I have tried and tried to pull it open. I have removed all screws. It just doesn't open. I have a HP Pavilion zd8000, that laptop is the same way. I have cat hair all stuck up inside of it. Only way I can partially clean it is to spray with canned air. But I know there is still more inside that won't come out. I tried to pull harder to open it, however I didn't want to pull too hard, affraid I might break it. I don't want to send it to the repair facility just to have them clean it. Anyone know how to open a Toshiba Satellite L25 S1216 laptop?

My laptop has buzzing noise from the place where air comes out from. It has not been like this and I wonder what can I do to solve it? It's really loud buzzing noise and changes intensity from time to...


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:

How do i remove a disk drive from a toshiba satellite L25-s1195 laptop


If you are talking about the CD/dvd drive you have to take it apart which WILL void your warrenty. Usually one of the screws underneath also holds it in place otherwise it is located under keyboard. I do not recommend taking a laptop apart unless you know what you are doing. if you damage one of the many this ribbon cables it will not work when you put it back together. If you are talking about the hard disk then there is an access pannel underneath that has a picture of what looks like cd's stacked on top of eachother representing the platters that are inside a hard drive.

Laptop switched off while i was working on it


After the notebook shuts down do not turn it back on for 15 minutes and then test it again. Will the notebook work longer if you let it cool down for a while? Isn’t it hot if you touch the bottom? Can you hear the fan running?
Most likely you experience a laptop overheating problem and it would be fixed by cleaning the cooling module – the heat sink and the fan. The notebook processor produces a lot of heat when the notebook is turned on. The cooling module helps to keep the CPU cool when the laptop is working. The cooling module includes two parts: the heat sink and the cooling fan. The heat sink is attached to the CPU and helps to conduct the heat from the processor to the radiator. The cooling fan blows on the radiator and helps to disperse the heat produced by the CPU. The laptop will overheat if the heat sink radiator is clogged with lint and dust or if the cooling fan stopped spinning.
If your laptop shuts down after some time without any reason and warning, check if the cooling fan spins. Usually it makes some noise and you can hear it. If the fan works fine, then check if the heatsink is clogged. In some cases you can clean the heat sink with compressed air, just blow inside the fan openings on the laptop bottom. If the heatsink is completely clogged, then it is necessary to remove the heatsink for cleaning.

Toshiba laptop shuts down on its own


Solution:
If the CPU heatsink is not clogged with dust and lint completely, you can use canned air and just blow it inside the laptop through the openings on the bottom and on the sides. It’s nice as a precaution measure, but it might not work if your laptop already has a problem and the heatsink is completely clogged.
Open the laptop case, so you can access the CPU fan and the heatsink. In some cases you can access the heatsink through the latch on the bottom of the laptop. Sometimes (for example Toshiba Satellite A70/A75) you have to open the laptop case all the way down.
Carefully disconnect the fan cables on the system board and remove the fan. If the fan makes unusual sound when it spins (grinding sound), I would recommend to replace the fan.
Clean the fan and the heatsink with compressed air.
I would also recommend removing old thermal grease from the CPU and applying new grease for better heat conductivity.

I have a Toshiba Satellite A215-S580 and often my computer will shut down, the screen will go black while I'm using it


Toshiba Satellites are prone to overheating, I know mine does, I have read here and on many other forums about complaints of over heating.
Try blowing into the exhaust ports on the back or even picking at any fluff you can see in there. I stripped mine down and cleaned out a a load of fluff when I was having over heating problems.
I now stand the rear two feet on an off cut off melamine work top about and inch and a half wide stretching the full width of the laptop, this allows more air to get to the underside fans, which draw the hot air inside the laptop and blow it out, this hoy air warms up ther surface the laptop is sitting on adding to the problem.
Mine is one of the large P35 17" models so I don't really take it anywhere it's more of a desktop replacement, carrying a piece of wood around with you is not a great idea. If you decide to get one of the laptop cooler stands make sure you know which way your fans are blowing and which way the fans of the cooler stand fans are blowing.
If you feel confident enough to take it apart to clean it this site can help you.

I don't know how to enable the wireless on a Toshiba Satellite L25-S1196


If you're running XP
Start, Control Panel, Network and Internet Connections, Network Connections, Right Click on your Wireless and Select 'Enable".
If it's a physical switch on the laptop then you need to turn it on. Check the sides of the laptop.

Need new / 2nd hand Toshiba satellite laptop motherboard


Hi timlondonuk,

I don't know if you've ever replaced the motherboard in a laptop, but it can be a serious chore - even damaging to the LCD connector and other devices if you're not careful. Oftentimes the cost of a replacement board is 50-75% of the cost of a new laptop, so you might consider that venue.

If you provide a model number we can help you find prices for the board.
