Question about Toshiba Satellite 1805-S274 Notebook

My Toshiba Satellite laptop keeps shutting off. I have an extra fan for it, and it happens so fast I don't think it can just be getting too hot.

The problem may be related to a capacitor called NEC/TOKIN Proadlizer which loses its capacitance with time and causes such issues when AC is plugged in. One needs to replace this cap as shown here: http://gs138.photobucket.com/groups/q251/S1BXDWUERU/

SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite L15-S104 Gets VERY HOT

Make sure that there is good air flow all around the laptop, including the bottom. By resting it in your lap, you may be constricting the air flow. This is one of the reasons why laptops are now called notebooks! They really don't work well on your lap. When I use my notebook, I make sure that the fans have a clear path so that I don't have this problem. Try that and see if it works. You could also use a notebook cooler. They run about 20.00, depending on the type and size.

Yes, it could be, but it could also be that your heatsink that sits on top of the processor has come loose, therfore it cannot transfer the heat to all the little blades for the fan to blow on to keep the processor cool. So, the processor overheats, making the computer shutdown automatically to prevent from destroying your processor.

This is a safety feature that most computers have, however, if your processor keeps overheating over and over, you could destroy it, so for right now, the best thing to do if you have to use your laptop is to stay away from programs that use the processor alot, like games, and video players or editors.

turn it off turn it over and clean the fan on the bottom. I use a Satellite a25. I have used air to blow out the cooling coils a nunber of times. Toshiba has picuten in the owners manual on how to remove the fan for cleaning. it picks up dust from the work area and does not blow it clear. this cause it to over heat most likely

SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite 1005-S157 shuts down

you need to check a few things... when the fan/heatsink assembly were replaced, did you make sure that the thermal pads on the CPU and GPU are NEW/Good.... Make sure that the Heatsink GPU pad Firmly sits in the chip....

You can test the thermal controller by using a hair dryer or heat gun.... Point it onto the heatsink pipes and see if your fan spins when the pipes get hot, then remove and see if the fans slow after a minute...

You might have faulty RAM or Misseated RAM... Pull The RAM chips and reseat them...
Also Make Sure Your CPU Is Locked Down....

Periodic Shut Downs Can Be Caused By Quite A Few Different Things...

Typically it's due to Thermal Damage
Though Failing RAM or A Failing Hard Drive, Overheated Video/GPU Chip, Or Even Failing CPU can as Well Cause This Issue...

When the CPU in the computer or laptopoverheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot upagain until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then theCPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes this problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged withdust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use acan of compressed air to do this.

My laptop battery sometimes gets so hot when I'm charging it that my pc shuts down


It might be to do with Windows 8, but what would be overheating is your processor or RAM. If it is the battery, Windows 8 might be too much drain, or it's simply coincidence and your battery is had it.

My Toshiba laptop P205D-S7802 is starting to make a sound like the fan motor is starting to go out. Can this motor be replaced?


Yes, it sounds like your CPU Fan is about to blow. Once it goes completely out and not turn on, your laptop will run hot and shut down. The fan is replaceable and they don't cost a lot. However your laptop will have to be completely disassembled to get to it and therein lies the cost. Get a quote from your local repair shop, then try these guys at: http://www.generalsystemsconsulting.com
They will repair it and ship it back via Fedex or UPS and their price will beat most quotes including the shipping.

My fan doesnt seem to be working and laptop just shuts down after it gets hot


Hi, your laptop shuts down as a protection against overheating. It's important that you take the laptop right away to a service repair shop so it can get the fan replaced before other important components get damaged.

Why does my computer keep shutting down? I thought it was my battery and replaced it,but it did'nt help.


It may shutdown when it gets too hot. Toshiba Satellite had some problems with this a few years back which involved a class action lawsuit. I had one of the computer that experienced problems and lost a lot of material which had not been backed up yet. I received compensation as part of the class. The lawsuit was settled, but I notice that the Satellite that I purchased since then will shut down automatically when it gets too warm. It helps to put it on a cooling device and I also turn on a regular fan and point it toward the computer when I can. If it is inconvenient to do any of this, I turn it off periodically to let it cool down. That way, I don't lose any data. Of course, I back up all data frequently.

I have a toshiba satellite a215 s7422 and it keeps shutting down on me so i disassembled it and cleaned out the fan but it still keeps shutting down...i recently had the bios reset, i don't know if that...


You should look for the following answers.
(1) Are you operating your laptop in a in a hot and dusty environment (If yes you should know that computers do not like hot and dusty environments and they shut down to avoid a complete burn out of the machine more over the dust particles also can destroy the hardware and block internal fan ventilation ducts in between the CPU and the fan).
(2) When the your laptop PC shuts down place your hand underneath the laptop and try to feel hot spots. If you find areas unusually heated then this is the main cause of the shut down.
(3) If just after the shut down and a good usage the Laptop is cool then underneath than overheating shut down might not be the case.
If you determined that heating is the cause and you cannot change your environment than you should look for other heavy duty laptops that are robustly designed for hot environments.
I do not think that resting the BIOS can cause this.

Toshiba Satellite T135-S1330 shuts down by itself. Tried rebotting in safe mode, shut off all startup programs, restored to previous point, was running a virus check when it shut off again. Has happened...


Do you still hear (feel) that the cooling fans are working ?
Maybe the fans are clogged by dust and the processors are overheating!
Try a vacuum fast clean on the exhaust hot air holes, it can help!

My laptop turn off, I think it got hot, I can't turn it on now. turn off Sunday


Hi
try this,
unplug dc plug from laptop. remove battery.
wait a few minutes. press and hold the power button for 10-15 seconds.
plug the dc power plug back into the laptop, but do not put battery back in yet. Then try to power on. if it powers on, let it run a few minutes, but best to keep checking to see if it is getting warm or hot anywhere. if it is getting hot shut it down immediately. If it isnt getting hot then shut it down and put the battery back in.

if it doesnt power up, then i would have to suspect heat damage to the motherboard.

Toshiba Satellite A105 laptop keeps shutting off for no reason.


I think your fan might be broken....if the fan doesn't cool the pc,the processor or the chipset will automatically shut down the pc to prevent burning hardware.Or your hard drive might keep crashing.Oh yeah and abstract from this i don't recommend ever using mcaffe
