There is a lever to the side of the cpu. You pull it up, this releases the cpu. CAREFULLY pull out the cpu straight up, noting it's orientation.

Clean heat sink on toshiba satellite


Turn off the Satellite laptop and flip it over so you can see the bottom. Push the battery latch towards the outside of the laptop and remove the battery.


Locate the heat sink panel, which will be next to, or including, the two fans that you can see. Unscrew the two to three screws that are holding that panel down, and remove them.


A few models of Satellite laptops use Torx sized-8 screws instead of Phillips.

Unplug the cables running from the two fans to the control board.


You can see the cables coming up from under the fans.

Then unscrew the two to three screws on the fans, and pull up to remove the fan unit from the laptop.


If your Satellite heat sink panel does not uncover the fans as well as the heat sink, ignore this step.

Remove the four screws that surround the heat sink.

Then move the heat sink back and forth to disconnect it from the CPU.


If your laptop shuts down by itself without any reason, check the heat sink first.

Overheating is a very common problem among Toshiba laptops.


Lift up on the heat sink to remove it from the unit.

If the CPU got caught on the heat sink and comes off as well, grasp it by the edges and peel it off the heat sink.


Turn the screw on the side of the CPU socket to unlock it, then place the CPU back in its socket and lock it again.


Blow compressed air into the heat sink and the fans until the dust is removed.

Then blow the air onto the control board to remove loose dust from there as well.


Place some Isopropyl alcohol onto your cloth, or a small brush, and clean the processor and the control board area around the processor.


You will also want to wipe up the thermal grease that is on these components. Make a note of the area where you removed the thermal paste.


Reapply a layer of thermal grease in the areas where you removed it.

The lid of the thermal grease container will have an applicator.

Just spread the grease over the components.

Replace the heat sink, then the fans and finally the heat sink panel cover.


hope this helps

I put a new power supply & heatsink with fan in my system & now I can't get it to power on. The heat sink was VERY hard to get on. I even put the old power supply back in & it won't power on....


If your CPU is sticked on the heat sink due to heat sink cement, could have damaged your CPU pins. Those CPUs like AMD and IBM Desktops we need to unassembled the same by tilting method. If your CPU pins are damaged, remove your CPU from heat sink by the help of a chisel type screw driver and clean both faces of heat sink and CPU. Do not scratch, use isopropyl alcohol to remove heat sink cement. Inspect any pins are dented or damaged. Align pins, if broken solder with help of a goldsmith. Reinsert the CPU in motherboard socket, apply a little portion heat sink cement in cpu face and re fix heat sink and recheck the motherboard.

Laptop won't boot turns on then off after about


Hello,

Your Laptop seems to be full of dust - Maybe your CPU Heat sink FAN cannot turn because if this THUS causing your laptop to heat up and shut down again to prevent your CPU from receiving damage due to high temperature.

Close your laptop lid, then put the unit on its backlcd. Make sure you disconnect the Battery and the A/C Power chord. With the emty battery slot is facing you, take note of the screw that is facing you to the right on the bottom cover. There might be others like this in the same area. The cover that you need to remove is of rectangular shape, and the largest cover.

When you have removed it you should see the CPU Heat sink and a FAN. This is the part where you blow the unit out at that spot with compressed air so that the dirt will no longer block the heat from venting away from the laptop mainboard/cpu.Please check if the CPU FAN is still turning licenly. If it doesn't turn or very difficult - replace .

[ADVANCED]
Then, remove the 3 screws from the CPU heat sink and thereby remove the HEAT sink completely. Remove the CPU Heat sink FAN and clean it as nessesary. Use a small flat to switch the CPU from closed to open and remove it. Then clean it with a cloth and ethanol - make sure you remove all dirt and old heat sink paste on top if it. make sure you do not touch the bottom of the CPU and handle the pins carefully.

When you are done, place the CPU back and reaaply a eyedrop of fresh heatsink paste onto the CPU, lock the CPU switch again. Then clean the backside of the CPU heat sink where it rests on the CPU. When you are done with that, place the CPU heat sink back onto the CPU then screw the 3 screws back onto the CPU heat sink and onto the mainboard. Keep the sequence in mind. Reconnect the CPU Heat sink FAN to power on the mainboard with the cable then place the cover back onto it. Tighten all screws again and reconnect battery and A/C Power chord.

I was running a virus check, asked what to do, I said fix, computer shut down and alarm buzzer came on. now I don't get a boot sound


soks3d,
With the system shut down, unplug the power cable from the power supply. Open you're case and pull the memory from the system wait a minute than reseat the memory. Re-connect the power cable to the power supply. Try booting the system and enter the bios menu. (Pulling the memory will clear any memory resident virus). This has nothing to do with the alarm buzzer sound you heard. Typically the alarm sound is generated by the CPU. It's an audible warning that the CPU is over-heating. The CPU will shut down you're system so as not to damage the motherboard and CPU. (Suggest you check the CPU fan for dust build-up. Use canned air to help remove any build-up. You can also use a clean paint brush to help remove any dust from under each CPU fan blade.
It's also possible that the CPU fan is running far too slow and may need to be replaced.
See page 3-23 in you're user manual.

Open the link provided below for a new heat-sink and fan assembly for a socket 462;
http://www.directron.com/a4004d.html
If the CPU fan and heat-sink assembly seems clean it is also possible that the thermal grease / thermal tape between the heat-sink and CPU is too old and needs to be replaced. (Save this check for last).

Bios reports "shut down due to overheating". Will then randomly shut down (hard). After each start-up will shutdown anywhere between 10-200 seconds. Can MB or chip be saved? Reset thermal trip (ie....


I had this problem crop up. Dust was the culprit, the CPU heat sink was a giant dust bunny. I removed the fan (held by 2 clips), removed the four screws holding the heat sink and pulled that. Then used a small shopvac to thoroughly clean everything out then reassembled. Works fine now.

Do you have any idea why a laptop would power up all the way to Windows and then unexpectedly shut off without powering down? It is still plugged in. The battery is fully charged.


Maybe a heat issue. I had a P4 system once that would do that exact same thing. I cleaned the cpu cooler and fans and added new heat sink paste between the heat sink and cpu. No problems after that. Let me know if this helps.
