Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A75-S229 Notebook ?

Hi. My notebook (Toshiba Satellite A75-S229) is having overheating problems. Every time the notebook overheats, it shuts down...just like that (I know that's what overheating means). When I watch an videos, the notebook runs very loud and then after 5 minutes, it shuts down. I can't do much with a notebook that shuts down on me so many times a day. Any solutions? Thanks in advance!


Answers :

I have family members who have also had similar problems. Your overheating problems may be linked to something more serious but there are a few things I would try first.\012Step 1 - Use a can of compressed air or an air compressor to blow out the dust from any vents or open areas. Clean out the fans as best you can because that can significantly reduce your noise problem.\012Step 2 - Do not use the computer on carpet or bed or your lap or anything that will block vents. A hard surface works best. \012Helpful Tip - You may want a usb powered cooling pad. Your laptop sits on top of it and it prevents raises it up off the desk. It plugs into a usb port on your computer and has fans on it that help keep the computer cool. Some even give you extra usb ports.\012Step 3 (May not work on all computers - I would install a program that monitors the heat of your computer components. One of the most popular is Speed Fan ( http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php ). Speed Fan can in some cases even adjust your hardware to reduce the temperature.\012
\012If all else fails I would call Toshiba or send it into a computer repair service. If a computer is working properly it should not heat up that much which suggests an internal hardware component failure. \012
\012Hope this helps and good luck to you.
Download CPUID's hardware monitor from here and install it:

\015\012install, run it and ckeep checking the CPU and videocard temps. They should all be lower than 75 C. If higher, they are overheating. If this is the case, check if the cpu fan is working. You may also want to clean up the dust from your notebook, using a compressed air can (I buy mine at walmart)
