Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A135-S2276 Notebook ?

Overheating / Freezing Issues

\015 I just bought this Toshiba Satellite A135 S2276. The fan works ok but it still feels very hot on the touchpad and just to the left of it. When it gets this way, the whole thing just freezes on me and the only way round is to disconnect the power cord and battery, leave to cool and boot up after about 10 minutes. With the fan working ok (I think), what could be the problem. Now, I live in a country in which Toshiba does not have an authorized dealer, so warranty issues are out. Any help out there?\015\012\015\012Sunil\015

Answers :

Buy a can of compressed air and thouroughly clean out your fan vents, etc. Put something under the laptop and see if it runs cooler with the space underneath. \015\012\015\012If I had your laptop in front of me I would probably test the CPU and at the least clean and put new thermal paste.\015\012\015\012Did you recently increase the memory? Many times an increase in memory will cause the laptop to run hot. Check to see what you have for RAM, if two chips take one out and run laptop and test heat levels, if no change, swap out the chips and try again.\015\012\015\012If all else fails try http://www.oceansidecomputers.com/laptops.htm
