Question about Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook
I am not very good at diagnosing what the problem is but my computer turns off by itself randomly. It usually happens when i've been on the computer for a while (2-3 hrs?). I looked up the problem and I found that it might be because it is overheating. I am not sure though. Any thoughts or solutions?
Hi, We see alot of overheating problems on Toshiba laptops. The problem is there is a build up of dust and hair inside the laptop over the cooling vents. What you can do is buy a can of compressed air and squirt it in bursts thru the vents and hoefully clear the dust. If you are confident enough with a screwdriver, you can do a better job if you take off the bottom panel and clean the dust off yourself. This picture illustrates what Im talking about:
