Question about Toshiba Satellite P30 Notebook
My laptop has started to become very hot when in use and then suddenly switches itself off. this first occurred when I was trying to copy some pictures to a CD from My Pictures and I got a message saying that the disc needed formatting. when I tried to format it began the process very slowly and after 2-3 minutes it switched the machine off. I subsequently discovered that I had to use special software which had been preloaded to burn the CD. However the machine continues to get very hot and after about 30 minutes use just cuts out.
Maintain adequate ventilation. If your PC is crowded between your desk and the wall, there?s no room for proper air circulation. Use compressed air to remove dust and debris around the fan and laptop openings. It could also be the CPU fan has gone out and is not spinning properly if at all. Try the air first. If it still overheats, take it to a certified tech and have him look at it. Don't continue to use the laptop for extended periods until you fix this problem. Heat can cause serious damage to your laptop. Then your talking big money.
