You should look for the following answers.
(1) Are you operating your laptop in a in a hot and dusty environment (If yes you should know that computers do not like hot and dusty environments and they shut down to avoid a complete burn out of the machine more over the dust particles also can destroy the hardware and block internal fan ventilation ducts in between the CPU and the fan).
(2) When the your laptop PC shuts down place your hand underneath the laptop and try to feel hot spots. If you find areas unusually heated then this is the main cause of the shut down.
(3) If just after the shut down and a good usage the Laptop is cool then underneath than overheating shut down might not be the case.
If you determined that heating is the cause and you cannot change your environment than you should look for other heavy duty laptops that are robustly designed for hot environments.
I do not think that resting the BIOS can cause this.

When I turn on my A215 S7422 Toshiba it give me a password screen


You may need to consult with whoever you're living with. Seems you got pranked.
If you live by your lonesome, keep in mind that only you can put in a user password. This miracle of some virus, or act of something, is not possible. To my knowledge that kind of virus has to be user specific. Targeting you only.
Contact Toshiba for password woes.

Toshiba satellite a215-s7422 fan not running can i replace fan? how?


Replacing your fan will void your warranty.

I would advise talking to toshiba for a replacement.

If still you want to replace ir, you have to disassemble the whole laptop to replace the fan, all you have to do once disassembled is unplug the original one and plug the replacement one, but you have to use only compatible ones, or else you will burn your cpu or the fan wont fit.

For a quick resolution, buy a powerfol laptop cooler.

Overheating trouble?


It sounds to me that your laptop fan is either clogged with dust or the bearings have jammed. Its most likely going to be necessary to open up the laptop and clean or replace the fan. This will require an experienced technician to avoid risking further damage. I have done it and its tedious at best. No other solution will work.

My toshiba satellite a215-s7422 is overheating i think. it's been shutting off suddenly with no warning and the fan doesn't seem to be blowing like usual...


turn it off turn it over and clean the fan on the bottom. I use a Satellite a25. I have used air to blow out the cooling coils a nunber of times. Toshiba has picuten in the owners manual on how to remove the fan for cleaning. it picks up dust from the work area and does not blow it clear. this cause it to over heat most likely

Toshiba Satellite A105 laptop keeps shutting off for no reason.


I think your fan might be broken....if the fan doesn't cool the pc,the processor or the chipset will automatically shut down the pc to prevent burning hardware.Or your hard drive might keep crashing.Oh yeah and abstract from this i don't recommend ever using mcaffe
