Dust, dirt and a few mustache hairs behind my Qosmio G25 screen cover!
After two years of hard use while constantly on the road internationally, I have lost my fan, currently have a Matshita DVD drive that is on it's way out, but worst of all, is a surprising amount of dust, dirt and actually two mustache hairs (my own I might add!) that have accumulated between the LCD display and the protective screen cover?
Does anyone have any idea as to how easy or difficult it would be to open up the display and clean out the offending garbage? It get's quite irritating when working on a report or giving a power point presentation when a business associate will ask me to please wipe the dirt and hair off of the screen!
I tried the service department at a major US electronics company in the US that is an authorized Toshiba service center when I was last home, but they said that they won't perform that work. I asked how long it would take to send it in to Toshiba? They told me it would take SIX WEEKS!!!!! Yeah right?

You probably need to replace the cooling fan, but you can try cleaning it out first. Get a can of compressed air or use an air compressor to spray pressurized air into the vent to spray dust out. If this doesn't work, you probably need to replace the fan. I actually found a guide for opening up the Qosmio G25 and replacing or cleaning the cooling fan. Check it out:
Uhm. I am typing this from a Qosmio G25-AV513... Using Windows 7.. With the original Hard drive.. Someone is lying to you. Lemme guess.. Best Buy?? Anyway.. It wasn't a totally straightforward upgrade.. You will need a little computer knowledge (finding drivers, ETC.) And since this computer came with a RAID setup, you will need to download the windows 7 raid drivers, and put them on a thumb drive BEOFRE you start installing, because when you get to the install screen it won't find a hard drive, you have to put the thumb drive in and click "Load Drivers", then load the RAID driver and it will work.. Drivers are kind of a pain to find since Toshiba didn't update their website with Vista or 7 drivers.. Thanks Toshiba. If you need help, e-mail me. P2000Canaro@gmail.com. Good luck!
If you are pretty good at computers then you can open up the computer and see just how bad the damage is. You may need to replace the keyboard, or a few parts of he mother board. If it was water I think you would have more of a chance, but the sugar will definitely cause problems if it hit any circuit boards. Your best bet is to take out your hard drive, make it an external hard drive and get a new computer.
Hi Paul have a g25-av513. First disconnect and remove both hard drives and the battery. In the battery compartment there is a small screw you need to remove and in the hard drive 2 bay there are 2 f8 screws that need to be removed as well. In all there should be 17 screws that need to be removed before you can pop the back cover off. When removing pay close attention to the connectors attached to the underside of the back cover. be careful not to pull to hard or you may tear the connectors which are very thin wires. First you have to remove all the screws on the underside of the laptop. The screws are marked f8's and f16's the longer ones are the f16's of course. I have taken mine apart several times already due to a boot up shut down issue which I believe is related to the modem board underneath hard drive 2. It seems that when ever I disconnect and reconnect this board my power shut down issue disappears. If it happens again I'm going to remove i all together and see if that takes care of my problem.
Yes.. First of all you are entitled to open the case only if your lapotop is not covered by any means warranty.. If you open it when it has a warranty, the warranty becomes void.. and moreover there are many complications n opening it.. so i suggest you to give it to a system engineer.. but if u want to do it by urself.. i shalll tell u the steps.. mail me..
