You can use a jet of compressed air to clean the cooling fans.
This air jet can be bought from most of the dealers for laptop and computer.

Then you could try blowing through the vents to get rid of dust and debris.
For the most part this procedure simply help!

If the laptop overheats again, contact a technician for laptop for further assistance.

    In my opinion do not open anything. On this way the warranty will be cancelled and if you are not familiar with the disassembly of the laptop, you can damage something.

    Before you continue just a matter of discussion:
    Let's say I help you with this and damage you something or broke a plastic part, what you will do in this case?
    I mean you probably know that you can get a few small important parts as separate components.

    By the way: this description may be provided in the manual. Disassembly of the laptop is authorized personal only. When you buy a new car it is no description how to disassemble the entire engine, right?

    By the way: Jeanine's right. See this page. There are many useful tips on laptop disassembly procedure.

    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 change the cooler on Satellite M30-344?


    IA´m lucky enough with my Satellite M30 - 344, but 2 months the cooler starts to become stronger every day. Is it possible to change the cooler on mine and how expansive is the original cooler? Do you know anything as a tutorial for the change process?

    Originally from 2 256 parts MB of Ram is installed. Now ia´m think about a bigger total RAM. As far I know are only 2 slots for RAM, or I'm wrong. Is it possible to install two 1 GB RAM pieces?

    Thank you very much for your help!


    The replacement of internal devices is not easy and a little risky.
    I wouldn't recommend replacing the cooling module yourself.
    You might damage it something on the map and as you know the motherboard is costly parts of the laptop. The manuals are not published because these documents are only for technicians and service partners.
    So I think you should ask a service partner to help him because these guys have more experience in these procedures.

    I found a site online with the memory modules for Satellite M30 344

    It is said that it of possible to upgrade memory to 2 GB max. That's why I think that it of possible to use module 2 x 1024 MB.

    These technical manuals do you mean are not public you won't find one. As far as I know they available only authorized for service providers.

    But for cleaning a laptop you n t need a technical manual. You can use compressed air jet, because then you don't have to disassemble the laptop. Blow gently and little time depression of the air holes of the case of the machine where the hollow air flow. This could eliminate the dust from the cooling fans.

    Ciao, Salvatore

    Personally, I would not recommend disassemble the laptop to clean the internal cooling fans.
    Such procedure is really complicated and I think that it s too risky for someone without any computer laptop disassembly experience.

    But not don t worry. You can clean the cooling modules without opening Notepad.
    I clean my fans for laptop with a jet of compressed air.

    These dust cleaners are very useful and you can very easily remove dust using these tools.

    Just google for vacuum dust or compressed air and you should find enough examples and offers online.

  • How to clean the radiator Satellite A210 - 11 p?

    I've had this laptop for quite some time now and I noticed that the fan becomes strong enough. I'm sure that there is dust pilling room in there, even if I tried to vacuum the dust through the hole. Is there a guide to I disassemble the laptop and actually clean the radiator and the fan? Or is it possible to clean without taking it apart? Please guide. Thanks in advance for the help!

    You must not open or should not disassemble the laptop because first of all, this procedure is very delicate and not easy, and second, you will lose the warranty!
    In my opinion it s not worth losing the warranty and to laptops risk of damage.
    Such procedure should be made by a certified maker Toshiba.

    But if you don t want to send the laptop to the ASP in your country, then you can try to clean the cooling modules with a professional air spray. These sprays are designed to clean the portable fans and can be purchased at the other computer and laptop dealers. I bought a set of cleaning of an online store and it s very useful

    I recommend you research a little in the internet for good deals.
    Best regards
