If your fan is running OK, then it probably doesn't need cleaning.

I have a satellite A350 and it pumps out a LOT of heat but that doesn't mean it's overheating. It's more likely your CPU usage is very high, which makes it very hot.

Turn on the CPU Meter in the Windows sidebar and close all applications. Watch the CPU usage (the larger front meter) for about 20-30 seconds. If the AVERAGE level when running no other applications is over 40% or spiking up at 90 or 100% then you are probably running too much junk in the background, or you have a virus.

Need a users manual for Satellite lap top serial #59610146q.How do I get it on my lap top? Toshiba


I'm afraid Toshiba goes by the complete model number instead of the serial number. Go here, choose product support, click on show all models, enter your model #, choose go. You will find a downloadable user's guide among the downloads available for your model. Right click on the highlighted text that describes the user's guide you want to download, choose save target as, choose the folder you want to save it in (or create one), and ok the download.
Wait for it to complete downloading before you attempt to open it.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

I need a users guide for ToshibaL40 lap top


Did you try the Toshiba site? You will need to know the exact model name and number of your laptop to get the correct manual. Yours should be a Satellite, but the L40 may have additional sub-model numbers:
