How to clean the C855-1UA Satellite and remove dust?

Hi to everyone.

I want to open my toshiba satellite c855 1ua, because I think the fan is very very dirty.

I have not found a tutorial how to open this same model, so I was wondering if I need to remove the hard disk too to 'remove' the bottom plate and fan access.

I don't have the Torx screwdriver to remove it, so I have to remove or is optional can I remove the plate without it.
Or there is another simple way to access and clean the fan?

I know that use compressed air bottle is not the way to probler, but it would be simpler.

I would not recommend you to disassemble the laptop just to clean the cooling fans.
The use of compressed air jet is the simplest and the best way to get the extracted dust fan cooling and cooling grids.

I clean my fan from time to time, and the jet of compressed air has always worked well

  • How to clean the cooling on Satellite Pro 6100 module?

    Since my laptop for some reason stop (explained in my last post), I read messages from others who are similar to my problem and some of the responses that they was that they must clean the cooling with a vacuum (vacuum) module.

    So I was wondering how to clean it and where is it? (I m not an expert on computers)

    I am not owner of a Satellite Pro 6100 but I saw this laptop on several pictures and it seems that the fans are placed at the rear near the CC.

    BUT if you have no experience, you must do it yourself. The best way to ask someone who knows what to do!

    We need to update the database of production test environment. Complete objects, etc. need to be updated.

    So far, I imported with this kind of dump of the fresh database only.
    Now, we already have objects, data, sitting in the test environment. How to clean the existing test environment and refresh the discharge of export production datapump.

    I thought dropping all tablespaces in test (off system, sysaux, cancel and temp). But not able to drop some storage space, it is revealing that the index is available in other storage spaces, errors etc. of dependence.

    Which is the best method to clean the existing test database. Management is not interested in the fall of the test database and recreate.

  • Satellite Pro L50 - a: how to replace the memory, HARD drive and battery

    I just uploaded 2 new video from Youtube on the L50 - A. Satellite Pro

    The first is a tear down showing how to replace the memory, hard drive and battery (you can also clean the fan if it detects overheating).

    BTW why they made it so difficult to get just to the battery in this model?

    WARNING - proceed at your own risk and don't forget static precautions!

    Hope they help and if you have any questions let me know.

    + The message was edited: link has been removed ad channel may not +.

    Thanks for these videos. It may be useful to replace the memory, but I think that the owners of the laptop should not open the case. This may void the warranty.
    Be careful about this.

  • Satellite L350-24U: how to clean the keyboard after having poured orange juice

    Hello out there.
    I spilled my L350-24U with Orange juice.
    Now, I have 4 keys to self-retaining :-(

    Can someone tell me how to clean the keyboard without damaging the laptop?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hmm, it's still a stupid situation
    Usually you can remove the keyboard of the laptop very easily.
    The keyboard is fixed with screws hidden under thin plastic cover near the line of F1 - F12 key.

    If you would remove plastic this cover then you would be able to remove the screws as well. Then you could lift the keyboard carefully and could disconnect the flat cable of the keyboard and the motherboard.

    Notes; two small latches on both sides of the connector must be moved in order to disconnect the cable.

    Then you could remove the keyboard and could clean it with a damp lint.
    PS: the caps can be removed too.
    But be very careful. You must raise the CAP to get it for free.

    There are many videos on youtube...

  • Satellite A305 - how to clean the keyboard after juice spills

    Hey guys,.

    I had a the sSatellite series A305 an i could not find discussions on this exactly.
    Basically whats up's had one incident minor orange juice on the left side of the keyboard thankfully not a lot of juice to all minor.
    I managed to clean most on the surface. And had to work it's good enough to get out of the speaker box.

    However, some of the keys are a bit of stick now, i wondered if there are techniques to withdraw safely on that I must do before I try to block these keys. Hmm pressing on enter appear... in any case...

    I had one of these laptops before a few months ago, but one of the keys is broken somehow, after that, I got a little worried because I had to basically return it and get another laptop from work. If im sure it was a defective key with the last one I was not playing with keys, but I'm not sure how sustainable this is. Also this will probably also help to learn how to clean the keyboard, theres a bit of a dust and grump under the space bar which has been botherin me an i have no idea how to remove one get clean the dirt below.

    I'll check this post when I wake up in the morning. If you know the techniques of hair removal good explain please, I'm not very good with directions so patient with me.


    To be honest, you will never be able to clean the keyboard. Break down the water is maybe not so bad, but the juice is sticky and can not be cleaned properly.
    I'm afraid that you need a new keyboard. :(

    Hello everyone,

    After my P300D chrashed several times I noticed that my CPU temperature is too high. Its almost 70 C at idle! (His old now a year and a half)
    I read in several Forums as its possible that vents are just full of dust, for example. He would like to open up the laptop, take a look inside and clean.

    Yes, I know that I lose the warranty if I do this, but my question is if someone have a step by step description how to do this. Maybe someone does this also.

    Please, I'd be all good advice.


    It s not necessary to disassemble the laptop to clean the fans and remove dust.
    You can do this without disassembly

    Use the jet of compressed air. The jet of compressed air would remove the dust of grids and cooling fans. This support and this procedure has helped me as well.

    Can I clean hard drive before installing Dell Windows 7 / as I have heard it is not clean everything properly. So how to clean the hard drive?

    Or can I restore my office before you install Windows 7 in the first place when it's new?

    Kind regards

    Bert Pooler

    Yes, you can restore the State as it was when new...

    Your computer is equipped with a recovery instead of disk partition...

    This is how the recovery partition is accessible to most popular brands...

    For Dell, press CTRL + F11 directly after switching on the device

    You may need to try several times to get everything above to work. If after several attempts, you have no chance, or the machine indicates that there is no recovery partition, your only option is to contact the computer manufacturer and ask for the model recovery discs...

    After the reset, you should get all the updates from Windows Update EXCEPT for hardware devices. Then, you install a good antivirus. ONLY AFTER you have done this, if you replace the stuff of backups or install anything else.
