My Toshiba P35-S611 shuts down without warning a short time (2 min-45 min) after it boots up. The battery isn't hot but the heat dissipation fins in the back are very hot.


Indications of laptop overheating problem:
  1. The keyboard and the bottom of your laptop are very hot when the laptop is working.
  2. The CPU fans are working all the time at maximum rotation speed and operate much louder than before.
  3. The laptop suddenly shuts down by itself without warning. When it just started, the laptop was shutting down after 1-2 hours and how it shuts down after 5-10 minutes of operation.
  4. The laptop works fine when it runs idle, but shuts down as soon as you start using any memory demanding applications (DVD player, image editing software, video editing software, etc.).

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.

Boots up windows runs for 5 mins then system shuts


You may have a cooling problem (with older computers), if you hear your fan running excessively and then it shuts down on you. Otherwise it is more likely a hard drive issue.

Freezing up


I think you need to do a power cycle. remove the battery and use tha AC adapter alone. If it boots, then thats good. U can try also booting on safe mode by pressing F8. Then re start the notebook in normal mode. If it wont works then i think u need to reinstall windows as a last resort. U need to use TOSHIBA RECOVERY DISK this time.

Need help think i may need a motherboard


If the the laptop is failing to boot very early in the4 boot sequence, then this usually points to a failure somewhere on the motherboard. There are a few test you can run to try. 1) Try downloading the following Diagnostic program and running it on your computer. The download makes a bootable CD, and you can try running a bunch of diagnostics on your computer with out having to boot into Windows. You can test memory, the hard drive, and other things. http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/ 2) Try replacing the memory. Sometimes bad memory can cause a device not to boot. 3) If neither of the above suggestions work, then I'm afraid you will need a new motherboard.
