Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A75-S209 Notebook ?

Overheats, shuts off, and operates extremeley slowly.

\015 I have to prop it up or it will shut off. The fans work but it doesn't seem to kep it cool enough. I have never seen a 5 year old laptop run as slow as this one does. I seriously believe that the overheating problem is causing the slow performance. I only use it to check mail, surf the web, or do some research. I think possibly iTunes may also play a part in the poor performance. Any and all suggestions are appreciated.\015

Answers :

The overheating problem can be caused by a faulty fan (spinning slow) or the fan and heat-sink assembly is clogged with dust. Check the vents and fan/heatsink assembly and remove the dust. Check if the fan spins freely, replace if faulty.
\015\012To provide further cooling, there are fan assisted cooling pads that are placed under the laptop that provide additional fan assisted air cooling to inlet vents on the bottom of laptops.
I put mine on a baking rack (formerly used to cool cookies in the kitchen) on top of my lapdesk. Works better, but I will probably try to clean out dust as others have recommended, too.

My HP Pavilion dv9700 was over heating and would shut off. Then it wasn't over heating and would shut off. Now it won't turn on at all. The power cord is working and the lights go on for a second while I am pushing the button to turn it on, but the computer won't turn on. HP told me the problem was the motherboard. Do you think that's really the problem or could it be something else?

Laptop overheating Recently, when watching DVD's on my laptop, it overheats to a point where the disc has to be removed, until both the disc and disc drive have cooled enough before I can continue watching. I have visually checked the cooling fans (not dismantled the laptop) and they both operate upon startup.
