Equium A60-155: replacement of the cooling fan
which screws can I remove to access the cooling fan if you please. (Equium A60-155)
Unfortunately, don t find all documents on the fan to replace procedure, but in my opinion it should remove much of a screw covers.
This procedure is not easy and if you don't have any experience you shouldn't t remove anything.
By the way; If you remove the cover, you will lose the warranty.
In this case, the best way is to contact Toshiba service in your country for assistance and more information.
I have a Toshiba Satellite C660-1st. Last days a cooling fan start working very noisy doesn t and cleanup help. I bought a new Toshiba L650 but it s not working do not. This laptop cooling fan seems same as from my computer, but the order of the wires in the plug is incorrect.
Colors are the same so I tried to change order of the cables but it helps doesn t.
Any ideas how I can fix the problem?
>... a cooling fan started working very noisy
How to understand this? Is noisy to say that the cooling fan can be defective and make a few strange noises or it works simply more often than before?
I have a Satellite A100 model computer and fan cooling for the right heat sink dropped on me a few days ago.
I rang Toshiba, who told me that it cost E120 more parts to install a new fan. I see CPU fans online for as little as E5 and have a good idea on how to open my computer to install but I am not sure what exact fan kind I need to buy if anyone can help I would be grateful.
Need more info just ask and I'll post a response.
Not all fans to adapt in each book.
So I think that the fan for Satellite A100 is not so cheap and don t forget it is not easy to disassemble a laptop. That's why it takes a lot of time and you need to remove a large number of screws.
Of course you can do it by yourself, but you will need the original Satellite A100 cooling fan. Maybe you can find one on eBay or elsewhere.
I have an error message from my anti-virus from Symantec that definitions of files are corrupt - this happens whenever the laptop is used - any ideas why it is doing this?
I tried different antivirus solutions... McAfee, AVG, Norton etc. but they all have similar problems - not loading correctly, errors in programs or just dropped.
I also reinstalled Symantec but which has not been set. I have also reinstalled the OS several times but it makes no difference.
I tried to live with the Norton Security 2004, delivered with the laptop, but that will keep not itself no longer updated, and when I try the update, it just falls and accidents - and it's the image came with the laptop without any change made.
This version of Norton also tends to make the laptop run like a 268.
If anyone has any ideas please let me know.
As far as know license update Norton Anti Virus that has been pre-installed on the unit is available for 1 year. I think that after 12 months it of not possible update the file to virus definition, or you need to buy an additional license.
But I don't think it's responsible for the strange problem.
I put t understand this recovery procedure doesn't solve this problem.
Have you had a second partition? Maybe you have a virus on the second partition?
Unfortunately I m of ideas. :(
I have several problems with my laptop, but after trying to use the product recovery disc, it says it's from windows 98 rather than windows xp which was originally about it. I cant even install that, because it seems that I have an overheating problem and he died before completing the task, but it is possible that I have the wrong cd? This is certainly the cd supplied with the machine when I bought it. Please help, I'm pulling out my hair and it would be great at least a sovle problem!
You can try to clean the radiator of the dust with the vacuum cleaner.
And do not worry about the recovery disc, it is the right one. Win98 will be only responsible for drive, but XP will be installed.
I gave to this laptop and asked if I could sort. its not to recognize the hard drive. I updated the BIOS to 1.9 but that did not help.
The friend gives me no docs or discs, just of the PSU. I found the manual on the website, but it is less than helpful. any ideas before I tell my friend to get a new hard drive to try?
I don't own a laptop myself so I have nothing to try it.
What HARD drive you installed in your laptop?
The fact is that this laptop comes with a 40 GB HARD drive. Most BIOS cannot recognize the device because of the size of the HARD drive.
Maybe you can use a 60 GB HARD drive, but I n t think that BIOS recognize larger drives.
In this case, I would first of all check if the HARD drive is supported.
I just bought a RAM chip of 512 MB SO-DIMM DDR PC2100 200pin for my equium A60-155
After installing the chip and check the properties of the system, I learned that I have 192 MB of ram (upgrade front of quantity)
If someone can help me and tell me what I have to do to get the ram chip to work, or if the chip is broken
I don't know if you the chip memory is damaged or is not compatible with your device, but as far as I know your laptop works with PC2100 DDR - RAM (1280MB max) however I found some information on parts compatible with Equium A60 - 155 m.
You can use:
PC2700 256 MB (PA3311U - 1 M 25)
PC2700 512 MB (PA3312U - 1 M 51)
1024MO PC2700 (PA3313U-1M1G)
I need to replace the hard drive in my equium A60-155. I need to know what is compatible with this model and if the brand of the drive is important in compatibility. For example should be a drive hard toshiba or is it possible to others.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
You n t need to install a HDD in particular of Toshiba. You can also use disk of another company.
It is important that you use a HARD drive with support for hardware specifications.
I found these useful discussions on the replacement of the HDD on the Satellite and Equium A60:
Satellite A60 is very similar to the A60 Equium and so the two series use the same hard disks
A week ago, I used my laptop Equium A60-155, I turned it off for the night. The next morning, he lights up no battery or AC, the lights on the front of the LT do not come on either.
I tested the AC and it is very much pushing the 14.8V.
On another forum suggested to abolish the HD to see if that would help (it didn't).
So it might be that the MOBOs dead (in which case I'll have to buy a new one when I get a job, or internal theers fuse who jumped (if it exists).)
If there is an internal fuse can I replace it myself and what is? (I'm on a job and can not afford the repair costs, some charge 70 Quid to pick it up, and another Bill 110 quid + parts)
I guess it's just a matter of undoing the screws on the bottom?
I suggest also to contact the ASP in your country, because he can do a diagnostic test and can give you a detailed response.
Maybe you n t need to change the Board of Directors, and perhaps only the part low cost has a failure.
But to find out the laptop must be verified.
I've had an Equium A60 - 155 during almost a year now and I'm quite impressed by it. For £730 I paid for it, not worth it.
I had to increase the ram with another stick 512 for another £60 as the laptop does not work even with the standard 192. By that, I mean system breaks down, abnormal system responses, spontaneous reboots, system files/missing features, anti-virus program, just basically a machine unreliable, unusable failures.
I will say that now the extra ram is installed, the software is more stable and most previous problems disappeared. But Toshiba is expected to have delivered it with 512 MB in the first place!
And the battery on this is terrible! There is barely even a laptop! On a good day with battery all the saving settings on max I get about 50 minutes of it--and Yes, a year ago, when it was new, it would last together 30 more minutes at about 1:20. At the point where the thing was started in Windows and you install to work, it is for food then you might as well forget about asking him and always run from the network.
How Toshiba charge that kind of money for a laptop that has this kind of performance? There is nothing on the laptop that can justify this money... the graphics card? Average. The processor? Celeron - enough said. The motherboard? Standard. The battery life? Laughable. The DVD burner? A bonus, but not worth the extra money. The size? Large.
Just that there is more that I could do about it I wish and Toshiba could be made aware of the misery that they have caused me (and probably many others) during this 'portable '.
* Note to the mods - please do not remove this post once again. Why do you feel the need to remove it anyway? Send me an email.
I don't want to sound harsh, but you shouldn't really complain if you had bothered to check the specifications before you buy. Regarding the system crash that you can't just blame Toshiba is much poorly written drivers in XP bugs bugs in the BIOS firmware. Make sure you have XP installed with all the latest service packs for updates also updates BIOS (there has been 3 since I bought my A60-181) and if you want to try a different operating system to install Linux or use a distribution like Knoppix bootable CD.
The battery life on laptops are poor, in general, I have seen some rival brands that quoted 1.5 hours but that the technology for you and having a processor Celeron doesn t s helped no more. That said that 50 minutes seems short for load complete so I recommend to contact Toshiba and see if they replace.
The Admin of this forum is probably done only by ensuring that all messages on this forum to help are useful asking the nature. Making negative comments about products Toshiba on a Toshiba forum isn't clever but if you have a problem, then ask for help instead.
see you soon,
Does anyone have instructions on how to disassemble the E10 to replace the cooling fan. a G25 irisvista.com all the other models, but the design is not the same.
Now stuck at removal of keyboard connector.
No idea what fan model numbers so I can order before the band down.
Unfortunately, it seems that there is no information on fan replacing on the laptop of the G10. These documentations are not for public use, but only for the Toshiba authorized service providers :(
Apart from this fact it s not advisable to disassemble this laptop if you have no experience! During the disassembly process, you could damage the motherboard or something else
So I think that he of better go to a technician because he has more experience.
In addition, the taken cooling module supported and compatible can be ordered from the Asp in your country

Here, I have TOSHIBA Equium A60-155 MODEL No.: PSA67E - 00300C8J
"I tried to update the bios, follow this thread" [http://laptopforums.toshiba.com/t5/Drivers-and-Utilities/Equium-A60-BIOS-Update-Problem/td-p/99434] ".

Looks like you want to update the Bios back-base. You can download windows-based BIOS:
Note, updating of the Bios, close all running programs running, including antivirus, disconnect from the Internet. However, if the system works well. should not touch.
Anyone know if I can copy DVDs to the hard drive?
I have an Equium A60-155 and Sonic Record now and Intervideo winDVD creator on it.
These two programs say that they allow me to copy to a blank disc, but don not say if I can copy on the hard disk.
sure, why not. Go to Explorer windows and do copy - paste, which should make the thing.
Otherwise, there should be a few good programs like "Isobuster" that can do almost the same thing...
Recently one of our engineers tried to upadate an Equium A60-155 Bios failed.
Now, the laptop wont even post you turn it on and it shuts down striaght away.
What are the methods for resetting the Bios?
This requires a seiral loop back plug it or are there other methods to remove it.
If the unit doesn't start at all it probably the BIOS chip is damaged. In this case just service can help. Sorry, but I'm afraid that you can't do anything there.
