Question about Toshiba Satellite P205-S6277 Notebook

1 Answer

Hi I have a Toshiba p205-S6277 Laptop with a boot problem. Well I took the laptop apart and found that the heat sync vent for the CPU was completely clogged with dust. Do you think the CPU is still good? I was just going to clean it and put it back together. Thanks!

My toshiba satellite p205-s6277 wont restore or configure also it freezes an error that the registry log has nop room


Click Start/My Computer then Right Click on the C drive and select Properties. If it shows zero bytes or that the drive is full and has no free space then that's why it is freezing and locking up. The system has no room to do anything.

Laptop crasc. no error report


Maybe it is overheating and it shuts down so that it does not damage the motherboard.

Three things that will cause a laptop to overheat.
1) Dust - Dust inside the computer, dust clogging the vents, dust around the fans, cpu and heat sink. Remedy - The best remedy is to take the laptop apart and blow the dust out with a can of compressed air. If you don't take it apart you could blow out the vents with a can of compressed air and it might work, but you will be blowing the dust inside.

2) A Fan not working. The laptop will have to be taken apart to replace the fan.

3) The Thermal Paste around the heat sink and cpu had dried up or is too thin to keep the unit cool. Take the laptop apart and apply a fresh coat of thermal paste around the cpu and heat sink.

One sure sign of overheating is that if you immediately try to power the laptop back up, it will not boot. But if you wait awhile and let it cool off then try to boot it up, you can boot successfully until it gets hot and shuts off.

You could also try a Cooling Pad that plugs into the usb port and the laptop sits on it. It has fans to keep the laptop cool. The pad can be purchased for under $20. Try Tiger Direct at:
http://www.tigerdirect.com

When the site comes up just type in the search box at the top: Laptop Cooling Pad. When the search results come back sort them by Price Low to High and you will see them starting at $5.99 or so.

I like the one below for $12.99

Laptop shuts off afer 5 minutes


Sounds like your laptop might be overheating. Does it reboot successfully immediately after is shuts down after 5 minutes or does it have to sit awhile before it reboots successfully?

If you can't boot it right back up after it shuts down, then it is definitely running hot and will only boot back up successfully after it sits awhile to cool off.

Things that cause it to run hot:
1) Dust... Dust clogged in the vents, fans and around the cpu and heat sink.
2) A Fan is not working
3) The Thermal Paste around the CPU and Heat Sink has dried up or is too thin to keep the unit cool.

For the best results you'll have to take the laptop apart to remedy the situation especially if you need to get to the Fan, CPU or Heat Sink.

You can try a can of compressed air and blow out the vents and fan area, that might work for a while but you'll be blowing the dust in. It's best to take it apart and blow the dust out.

My computer just popped up a warning and told me to return it for service due to an overheating problem. What can I do to fix it?


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.
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Clean the fan and the heatsink with compressed air.
  4. I would also recommend removing old thermal grease from the CPU and applying new grease for better heat conductivity.

My x205-s9349 toshiba laptop is getting hot in the area of #1 hard drive and shuts down. I have vacuumed the case out and still does the same thing. this laptop has run hot ever since it was new.


When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a can of compressed air to do this. Use a fan assisted laptop cooling pad for addition cooling.

Hi I have a Toshiba Satellite p205-S6277 Laptop. When I turn it on it will not boot. The power lights are on, the fan turns on for a minute and the hard drive light flashes for a second. but nothing...


That could be a cpu problem or a man board error. You should be seeing some kind of error code either flashing leds or a beep. If it shows no code then if the memory is good, it can be the ram connector or the controller. Basically to generate any code the ram has to be good and the board has to see at least the first 64k of it. It will generate the code even with a bad cpu as long as it can use that first small bit of ram.

Swap the ram locations and you should try just one single module at a time. Sometimes heat cycles or vibrations will work the ram loose. So just taking them out and carefully reseating them can fix this problem.

The two normal causes for this on a laptop are a bad cpu that usually has overheated and the first suspect is always ram.
Either of those can be replaced fairly cheap. Past that you are looking at a main board replacement.

From your description the cpu sounds like the probable cause.
