yet another thermal shutdown sob story...
*Sigh*... I think this has been the worst
year for heat problems (and batteries for
that matter) I have ever seen.
This topic has already been covered multiple
times. If you search this forum (and others)
you will have some ideas as to the cause and
maybe a resolution. Also search for THERMAL
SHUTDOWN or OVERHEAT as keywords.
Things you can try:
- power options via control panel ... lower
your CPU speed and put the cooling method to
- make sure you dont have hidden progs/spyware
eating all the CPU cycles or holding the cpu
at 80% or above longer than it needs to be
(open taskmanager CNTRL+SHFT+ESC)
I have a Toshiba Satllite A75-S2292 laptop. I bought it from Price Costco the very end of January, I had to return one I bought last year to there another satellite model (A60 or A65 I believe), and I got this one. Form the beginning I noticed some minor annoyances. A loud high pitched squeak sometimes, and the touchpad would (and still will) lock up or it will make me press down really hard to get the mouse where I want it.
Well, now i have a huge problem with it overheating. No matter where I have it, on my desk, which has nothng around it, or anything, it will overheat and shut down. And it's not like the computer has been on for days at a time, we could be talking 15 min.
I was wondering if anyone could help me with this. Or my warranty with Price Costco is about to expire, and I was wondering if anyone recommends another computer (preferably none-Toshiba).
Thanks for any help
