Is there a fan close to it?

Toshiba... | Answered on May 06, 2015

That's a bit warm for idle. Here are some things to do and check:

1. Make sure all your internal fans are running.
2. Are you using it on a soft surface like a bed or pillow where the
exhaust vents are being partially covered up?
3. Go into Bios and tweek your fan speed settings. Raise the speed of
the fans if you need to. Some manufacturers set the speeds low to
keep noise down.
4. Get a laptop cooler (I Highly Recommend this).

If you do decide to get a laptop cooler you can always get a good deal at www.newegg.com. Newegg is one of the best and most popular computer/tech stores on the web.

Here is a link to their laptop coolers:

It is probably a driver issue. First check the device manager, from the Control Panel. A red triangle with an X or a yellow triangle with an exclamation point indicate that the issue is with the driver.

http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/home.jsp?nav=Download will let you search for your model and download the XP sound driver.

The specific driver may be: http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=DL&os=&category=&moid=2043975&rpn=PSU41U&modelFilter=&selCategory=3&selFamily=1073768667# (using the Satellite Pro U400-S1001V above)

I hope this helps.

Yes it is, seems there is some problem with the power state detection and changing of the load mode. Might by a physical problem, so I am not sure you can fix it.
At least check your power plan details and see if there is any error with the ACPI devices in the device manager.
In general, if you use the laptop when plugged, you should take out the battery to maximize the battery life (prevents useless load cycles).
Also configure Windows to optimize battery usage.

Start system and when you See Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys Twice and it?ll show Classic Login box. Now type ?Administrator? (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from ?Control Panel -> User Accounts?.
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.

Well this may be caused by the inverter board found behind the LCD panel. You'll find a coil on the inverter board. Solder it on the two sides.
The existing solder may be loosening due to heat. Use solder to re-solder the two sides.

Make sure that you have to headset plugged in before you start the program you're using. Be sure to set te headset as the defult audio device for the program as well.

If this doesn't resole the issue, checking for driver updates, and/or uninstalling and re-installing the drivers usually works.

If you want to play DVDs from any region you maybe able to upgrade the firmware to make it region free BUT if you make a mistake or installed the wrong firmware the player will be a piece of junk.
The best solution to make the player region free is to install a piece of software (Passkey for DVD) that allows you to play DVDs from any region and Passkey for Blu-ray that allows you to play Blu-rays from any region.
There are several available on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free

Do you have a wifi card in the computer? It is a hardware part that you need so that the computer can connect to the wifi. If you have that but can't find it in the operating system. I suggest that you either install or update the driver for it.
You can use RadarSync to scan your computer for the available updates of your wifi driver. Make sure that you connect to the internet first using your ethernet so that it will detect the available driver updates somewhere in the databases of the manufacturer.
