Question about Toshiba Satellite A205-S4617 Notebook
I repaired a A210 this week with a similar problem, it was due to overheating, I even had to reflow the GPU to repair it due to graphics errors. <div>Check that all of the air vents are left unblocked and that your fan is spinning and expelling warm/hot air. It is recommended you use your laptop on a hard flat surface to ensure some airflow under the laptop. You could try purchasing a can of compressed air and blowing it into the vents to loosen up any built up of dust and hair.<br /> If you are skilled enough you could open the laptop up to completely clean the fans and heatsink. Whilst it is open you can remove the heatsink, clean the old thermal paste off of the CPU and GPU and apply a very thin, evenly spread layer of fresh thermal paste. Then put the machine back together.<br /> <span class="apple-style-span"><span style="font-size:10.0pt; line-height:115%;font-family:"Arial","sans-serif";color:black">As for the fans, download a free application called SpeedFan and read through it. It will monitor your core temperatures and it has some options for controlling fans if your hardware allows it.</span></span><br /> Hope this helps,<br /> www.PuterCare.com<br /></div>
