My computer shuts down while im playing a game


This laptop was not designed to be a games machine, so the stress on the CPU will be quite high, generating a lot of heat. If the fan is unable to dissipate the heat from the cpu, but more importantly from the graphics chip, the laptop will shut down to stop damage.

What I suggest is that you open up the laptop and clean the area around the heatsink and fan and inlet grille, even a mild build up of dust and fluff will cause the temperature of the laptop to rise 10 or more degrees. Eventually overheating will cause the graphics chip to unsolder.

This link is a good guide

Seems my toshiba satellite lap-top is over heating, how do I get to the fan to clean it? Model number: psafgu-02k001 serial; x7253530q


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.

My Toshiba satellite pro M10 very slow.


check your system performance thru task manager. check for CPU usage. usually COU usage is 1% to 10%. if your CPU usage would peak from 10% to 100% there is a huge possibility that there is program running on your computer that eats up your memory. Or it could be spyware/malware

How do I replace the keyboard?


next to the F1 key and the windows key (2nd upper key and second to last key) are two screws, usually under some covering. unscrew and lift top edge of the keyboard towards the trackpad to lay face down. Undo the wire ribbon by lifting the grey or brown tabs and remove ribbon and keyboard. Then install the new keyboard by inserting the ribbon on the place. Lock down with the tabs and put the plastic prongs (close to the space bar) into the laptop body first, and then close keyboard onto the final position. screw back in and thats all. nboulikas@gmail.com for any additional questions.

CPU upgrade for Satellite 5205-S505


You would only get a marginal performance increase. If your laptop has 256Mb of RAM, increasing the RAM up to 1Gb (this model laptop cannot support more than 1Gb RAM) would boost the performance of the laptop.

Toshiba Satellite A100 LE4000 Turns Off Randomly


there must be still a problem with your current cooling system. try cleaning up your laptops fan. cpu gets heated up very easily even if you turned it off for a while. you can do this by unscrewing the parts, the inside must be pretty dusty or something. this also happened to me but from a different unit.

also, try checking for the latest bios driver for your laptop and to be sure, download it on toshiba site itself. because latest drivers for your bios also manages the control of your cpu fans.

if you could also get access to your systems cooling options in bios, try checking if your cpu's temperature are doing fine.

but i prefer you cleaning up the inside fans as well. hope this helps.
