  • Satellite P100 - 387 CPU fan works like crazy

    Hi all
    I have a laptop Toshiba Satellite P100-387. I bought it with 2 friends. The same model.

    The problem exists only in 2 of the 3 laptops. It looks like this. When I start the machine everything is ok. While windows starts cpu cooler (or video card cooler if it exists) starts to work. If the fan starts to work the low speed at the highest. And did it for 5 - 10 times. Then a few minutes break and again. It's really noisy. It seems that when you insert a CD or a DVD.

    It goes like this also when windows is started. No high consumption of CPU, the fan works like crazy. Start at full speed for 2-3 seconds, then for 1 second and still the same.

    Everyone has the same 'characteristic '?
    What is this Toshiba Power Saver software works with p100-387?


    I P100-109 close to me and I noticed the same thing. There is no difference between preinstalled WXP or Vista and because of this, I assume that this is a normal behavior. I know it's sometimes troubling, but unfortunately you have to live with it.

  • After the upgrade to iOS 9.2, I have no service and my battery drains quickly

    I have an iPhone 6. I live in England.

    I have upgraded to iOS 9.2 two days ago and I saw two problems since:

    1. I can not get any mobile service. I see the 'no. Service' at the top left of the home screen when I try to search for the service. A Wi - fi connection still works fine. I turned my phone off and on again, and while it does not find service briefly, it goes quickly back to 'No Service'. I tried to enter the Mobile Carrier settings area and deactivate the options, turn it back on. Nothing has worked.
    2. My battery drains very quickly. It is 14:12 in the afternoon and I currently have 29% of battery. Usually I didn't have come down below 60% when I get home at 5 pm, because I do not use my phone very strongly. The Gmail application took 35 percent of my independence despite spending only 9 minutes on screen. My phone is hotter that it would normally be.

    I have heard that when a mobile phone search service repeatedly, it uses a lot of battery. This phone has been updated with the airplane Mode + Wi - fi since this morning - I did have this service at any time you are looking for today.

    People have recommended reset my settings, but I don't know what this will do to my phone, so I didn't, as whenever someone suggests it, it does not work for the afflicted person.

    Is there anywhere I can check the reports of bugs with the 9.2 release? I feel like there is a problem with it, but I don't see anything on the internet to suggest that.

  • The crashing apps and battery drains quickly after updating iOS 9.2

    Well, that's what's happening: before upgrading to iOS 9.2, no app crashed, my battery lasted all day and everything was fine, but after update, applications such as Facebook, YouTube, Maps, even (Yes, stock cards, no Google or whatever it is) kept crashing and now I have to charge it twice a day to operate. Also, I noticed it worked a bit hot too, don't know if that is related to the battery issue, but he started to be going after the update, before, he had run cool, so I don't think is a hardware problem. If there is a solution, please let me know, because it's pretty boring, gtting thanks in advance.

    You must close information apps, iOS 9.2 takes about 5 GB of storage, so I think that you have a 8 GB model

  • Fan runs almost always since the installation of Sierra and MacBook Air running Mac OS.


    Since upgrading to Mac OS Sierra last night on my MacBook Air (2013, i7, 8gbRAM), fans work almost always, even when I use Safari.  Previously, the fans would go only when I was playing a game, or video edition.  The basis of my Macbook Air is also much more hot he was under El Capitan - once again, just when you use Safari.  As a result, my battery life is horrible - dropped from 100% to 23% in a little over an hour.  Once again, under El Capitan, if I was just using internet, use of an hour would see the maximum of 10 to 15% of decline in battery.

    I turned off my Macbook Air and it turned on again after fifteen minutes, but in 10-15 minutes, fans revived upward and the base (and the top of the keyboard) heated again.  No uncomfortable levels, but certainly noticeable levels.

    Just to remind - I use Safari only when this happens.  Moreover, since the beginning of this question five minutes ago, the % of battery has dropped from 29 percent to 22 percent and the fans are still whirring like the dickens.

    No idea why this is happening?

  • Slow RAZR battery drains quickly after the update

    After the passage of global roaming in back to LTE/CDMA and circles (and switching back-and-forth he other things) the phone became more coherent but remains problematic. Then I discovered SoundCloud recorder in the background at 30% of fortification at random, so I uninstalled the app and the phone works normally now.

    I don't know why recorder SoundCloud runs in the background, or what it does exactly, but I don't really want to be registered and have uploaded to a server without my permission or do it slowly to the bottom of my phone. I wrote them a terse email about it so I'll find out what they say.

  • Cursor disappears and the Trackpad unresponsive liked - NEW MacBook Pro!

    My MacBook Pro is now a little less than two weeks. In the first days of its use, the slider disappeared and the trackpad was totally insensitive.  The only way to make it work again was to turn it off because he has not answered either keyboard commands. I called the support, which I must say were not very useful, a left me frustrated. The first person I talked to seemed very green - not a vote of confidence!

    Fast forward about 8 days later.  Exactly the same thing. Support and through his statement, tried to start in safe mode, but no go. He went immediately from the Apple to the login page.  On top of that, the person was very rude.  It has been long since I have dealt with the Apple support, and these experiences were very different from I remember.  I will communicate the headquarters to complain, but for now, my question is what to do?  This is a NEW computer, so in my opinion, probably this should not happen at all, but I wonder if this is a common problem, and if there is a fix!

    My old MacBook Pro got too draggy and the processor was too outdated to handle any innovation that occurred in the last seven years, but boy, I loved this computer!  I have to deal with this issue, of course - setting or Exchange it as a failure - but in general, the new MacBook Pro suck?

    Ah, I just saw that the product is 'start 2015' - quite interesting, because I bought it more than a quarter of the way in 2016!  I am really annoyed and disappointed by Apple.

  • The fan works like a crazy and super fast drain battery after installation of Sierra

    I installed Sierra on my MacBook Pro, the fan works like crazy and the battery is empty after about 1.5 hours. Which never happened before. I'm only using Safari and Mail in the moment. I talked to Apple Support and they suggested to reset the SMC, but this brought no improvements. What can I do else? Again, I plan to install the El captain...

    I had this problem just after I installed Sierra on my MacBook Air.  First I tried to reset the SMC and the LANDAU.  This does not prevent fans constantly in the course of execution.  I then used the activity monitor to see what was possibly strain my system.  I noticed the "DCs" process was always sucking up to more than 90% of my CPU usage.  However, others said that it is normal after an upgrade of the OS and it should fall back down once the computer finishes its initial picture and analysis of the files.  So I run my MBA plugged nonstop for 36 hours in a row and the fans just kept running so that the process of "DCs" continued to drain at > 90% of CPU usage.  I also looked carefully at the activity monitor and saw that tasks such as analysis of photos had their own separate process "DCs".  So I dug further into what the devil "DCs" was really do with a lot of CPU resources.  Long story short, I found that there is some glitch in Sierra which causes the macOS stuck on a process involving the keychain and iCloud.

    That's what I did to fix this keychain/iCloud which led to "DCs" fans of triggering and overloading the CPU to be always on:

    -In the activity monitor, I used Force Quit to kill the process that involved the keychain

    -In the activity monitor, I then Force Quit the process that involved icloud

    -In activity monitor, I finally Force closed the process "DCs". (I found that I could not simply force quit 'DCs' without first allowing the keychain & iCloud first)

    -After all, I restarted the computer and fans were finally off the coast!  I open the activity monitor and saw that 'DCs' has is no longer hogging up the CPU usage.  Photoanalysis process were still running in the background at 40-50% CPU use with no trigger unwanted system fans.  the iCloud synchronization and my keychain also worked very well.

    I'm finally able to use Sierra without my fans blazing out of control.  It took me a while to get this sorted out.  Hope this helps to save you a few headaches and time until Apple can get counts that there is this Sierra software glitch they need to address.

  • Satellite A210-MS9 overheats like crazy with the fans always on

    Dear forum members (and guests)

    I am a happy owner of the Satellite A210-MS9 laptop, and I'm having a major problem. This notebook is so hot, for nothing. as it will close for more than a day and the second I turn it on. the fan mounts like crazy and it disables never (EVER), noise is killing me, makes me emotional stress. and not only that, I thought the problem of vista, so I installed xp, same problem. I even turned off all the pleasure of the eyes in XP (imagine that) However, the fan never stops and it is too strong. so I went to google (for all best friend) I have found that the average temperature. for a system like mine is 29.6 (top) and 30.9 c (bottom)

    So I downloaded CpuCOOL to check my temperature, guess what was my average temp, it's 50 ° c. 50, it is 67% more than it should be.
    I don't know if I'm the only poor with his laptop tries to kill him with emotion, but I need help, desperately. now I see why they call this thing a laptop more, because you can never he put on his knees (if you want to have children) and I want to have kids.

    good luck and good night

    Hi Pauleece,

    Looks like there is dust in the heat sink causing the CPU overheating. This happens to all laptops used in dusty environments.

    A quick fix would be to blow into the air vents when the laptop is turned off. This will reverse the flow of dust and dislodge. You can also use compressed air to blow off the dust.

    But if its in bad shape, you will need to disassemble the laptop and dust correctly. An ASP can do for you for a small fee.

  • BlackBerry Z30 battery draining high after update

    The battery drains quickly after the update.  The monitor of the device shows that it is the standby process that uses between 25% and 40% of the battery.  This process uses a good amount of CPU.  I tried to restart the unit a couple of times to see if that solves it, but it doesn't.

    Is there a fix or the means to return to the previous version of the OS?  I can't even make at 15:00 without having to recharge my phone.  So much for the famous BlackBerry battery life...

    It does not allow that BlackBerry charger provided with the new phone is only 850mA and the phone does not recognize as a BlackBerry charger (aka, it takes a long time to load in the middle of the day, when it is low).


    I have confirmed that the problem disappears when it is not connected to the TLS - based EAP wifi connection.

    I am currently in direct contact with the support of BB.
