Hi
The motherboard has a sensor that will shut you down, (hopefully before any heat damage is done), should your system overheat. Normally when this starts to happen, it means either the fan has failed, or the dust screen where your notebook intakes fresh air is blocked. I'm not an expert with your model, but try to locate where the fan is on your model...alot of times you can hear when it starts up, and if you place you hand around the back or the sides you can feel the hot air blowing out. If so, then the fan is fine, so look for a screen where the fan draws air in, and use a vacuum and an old tooth brush to clear the screenif blocked with dust. Also, if your model draws air from the bottom, make sure you never use it on a bed, or anyplace where that intake can be blocked. Cooling pads are not expensive, and sit under the laptop with extra fans to provide additional cooling, and one of those may help prevent future problems, once this one is corrected.
In some cases, the laptop may need to be dismantled & the fan cleaned as well as the heat sync around the CPU if dust has clogged up the whole system. If you tackle that job yourself, it would be wise to find instructions on how to dismantle the notebook, as that can be difficult, I would recommend a repair shop take care of it in that case.
Hope this helps, good luck!

One of the bad things that happen with lap tops I have observed owning them is they do get hotter than usual, they make a lap USB fan for them which since I have recommended to all of my clients there seems to not be as many issues with heating anymore. Lap tops are designed with protective measures in the BIOS when built to shut down then they get to hot.
A good feature so the cooler your lap top runs the less it will shut down. Also go into the power options settings when you reload and set this to the factory settings and only change the power side that is when it is plugged in only leave the battery settings where they are. I hope this assisted you. Fix this before it becomes a serious issue. Thanks for using FixYa for all your questions. John

When plugged in the unit starts to smell hot like an electical burn,


Turn it on turn it over and see if the fan is operating. If not power your lap top off and replace the fan. You may have to not use this computer until the fan is replaced it is advisable not to. The smell you have may be dust smell when it gets hot. Clean throughly and make sure that all the dust is out of your computer. Also recommended a lap fan also which goes underneath the laptop to assist with cooling.
Lap tops are very touchy and need to be kept cool at all times otherwise you will be purchasing a new lap top if you do not take care of the cleaning or the cooling or the fan not working or spinning slowly. Check all this out. Critical if you do not understand what I mean take your computer to a local shop for immediate care. I hope this assisted you. John

My processor is getting hot. What will be the solution.


Turn it off ... it will not get hot.

Typically, normal temperature is over 100 degrees. There have been reports of fires starting as the result of a overheated PC. I am not making the claim, I have not had this experience.

Heat is the enemy of delicate computer parts. They call them Lap Tops but you should never use one on your lap. Always place your lap top on a hard surface to insure the vents are not blocked and the internal fan can try to do its job. If you are concerned about the heat, you can get a 'cool pad' to use under your lap top. A cool pad has a fan which blows onto your lap top to keep it cool. The cool pad gets its power from a USB in your laptop. This cool pad should not be used for long periods of time on battery power for obvious reasons.

When I push the power button to power the lap top up the light display that says outlet power changes from green to amber and the laptop will not power up.


try removing the battery and just use plug power only if it boots normally then change the battery and the change the power supply unit as well I would just start with the power supply unit first then see if the battery charges up if not the battery is bad replace it. Now if the computer will not start with the battery removed then you have a power supply issue.
Change and replace it. Hope this helps. Also when computer lap top get hot they will shut down to protect the computer wait and let it cool down then try to restart your computer. If this does work and the lap top restarts normally get a fan cooler that is USB powered and the lap top sits on top of it. Also make sure the fan is running and is not stopped. Clean and dust it out once in awhile. I hope this assists you with your problem. John

All my saved pictures have been deleted and the screen continually goes blank


Greetings and thanks for the question, there are various reasons why this happens. Without having your computer here to see what is going on is anybody s guess on how to repair it. If I may offer some suggestions. Since I also do not know what operating system you are using I will assume it is Win 7.
I would personally go to control panel and check my power options to make sure I do not have the settings set you close display or sleep mode or anything set to soon to close your machine down. Often times people have these set to go off there are defaulted usually to save battery usage and your lap top from getting to hot and shutting it down. The thermal switch may be activating sooner than normal. What some folks do is purchase one of those underneath fan coolers to keep their lap tops from getting to hot and constantly shutting down.
This can be the case have this checked out at least set the lap top for more time before closing down or turning the monitor off. Let us hope it is not more serious than appears. Like a lamp in the monitor going out. If it is new the lap top I would not worry about that issue because it is intermittent. Which leads me to believe it is a thermal or a shut down issue. Get the cooler fan for your lap top I recommend anyone that reads this post to also do this as well. Clean your lap top blow them out it is critical to do this to keep dust away and keep it clean.
Now there is recovery software which is free to download Click Here to check this out to retrieve lost files. Also important to get those precious memories separate off your computer and on to separate CD or DVD or storage USB stick so that when this type of thing happens you have not lost your precious memories. I hope this helps you. John

My battery states that it is fully charged but when I switch on the laptop it says that I need a new battery. My laptop also gets very hot.


In my experience, you should trust your laptop, not your battery.

Concerning hot - can your computer breathe? You shouldn't actually sit your lap top on your lap ... it should sit on a hard surface so air can be drawn into the vents by the fan.

Toshiba m115-s1061 very slow on the internet. what can i do to make it faster


  1. Keep it cool. Despite its name, you lap is not the best place to put a laptop. Laptops generate a lot of heat, which can have a severe effect on your laptop's performance. Try not to use it in a hot room. Never set it on a bed, pillow, upholstery or anything else that is soft. Instead, place your laptop on a hard surface like a table. If you like using your laptop in bed or on the couch, try putting a book or a thick magazine in your lap and then setting the laptop on top of that. Every ten minutes or so, turn the book over so the surface never gets too hot. This will absorb the heat.
  2. Step2Shut down unneeded programs before using power-hungry software like games or large spreadsheets. The more programs you have running at the same time, the worse your computer's performance will be. Most computers have a lot of unneeded programs running in the background from the moment you boot up your computer. Shut them down manually using Ctrl+Alt+Delete, or download a freeware application that will shut them down for you. If you have Wndows Vista, you can also access the start up configuration by selecting "Run" from the accessories menu, then typing "msconfig" in the box
