Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite P305D-S8818 Notebook ?

My Toshiba Satellite P305D overheats and the power cuts out. The same thing happened about a year ago when it was still under warranty. The repairman said the the motherboard was faulty and replaced it. Is this a common problem? Isnt it unlikely for the motherboard to fail again?


Answers :

It is unlikely that a Motherboard would fail, unless there was inadequate ventilation under the laptop in which case it is quite possible that the motherboard is damaged. Have you been placing something under the computer so air can ventilate more efficiently? I would take it to your local computer repair shop and see what they needs to be done, as it is very hard for me to diagnose a laptop over the internet.

No picture My vaio VGN FS740/w has no picture even when i turn it on. I have attempted hooking it up to an external monitor to test to see if it was the screen but there is still no picture.
