Overheated and now won't load

\015 It overheated and now won't go past the windows start up screen. It\015\012WILL go to the Windows screen but then I get the blue kernal of death\015\012and it loops around to restarting. I tried to use Ubuntu to get my docs\015\012of but it won't boot from that drive. I replaced the DVD drive and\015\012still get nowhere. What do you suggest?\015

Answers :

Hi teach- It sounds like a problem of thermal shutdown. This is a very common problem with Toshibas. You can try sucking out all the slots as much as possible with a vacuum cleaner or shop vac. The more powerful the better. Hold them there for a while and try to get as much dust and dirt (or hair if you have a pet) You may very well have a clogged heat sink. You'll have to take off the bottom if it comes to that. Try the first part of this solution. Let me know what happens. If it fixes it great! If not we'll proceed from there and I'll be here to help you out. Thanks.
