Satellite A200 to be extremely hot

Hey guys.

Well do this fast and accurate.
I have a Sat A200 toshy.
Its about a year and a half.

Still in warranty.

I use it mainly to play games that I spend a lot of time.
Mainly played world of warcraft. But with in the first 30 minutes of operation, it becomes so hot I can barely touch the keyboard.

It has not overheated to the point where it is automatically turned off but I'm are afraid its not far.
I have clean the CPU fan all the time and the fan is spinning madly, but its stil in the hot oven.

Any ideas to try to cool down?

Have you tried to clean the fan with compressed air jet?
You can buy this by a local computer dealer and for that you should not disassemble the laptop.

If you still have problems after that, I would go to a local ASP. Technicians can check your laptop parts and Exchange if necessary.

  • Satellite A200-1J0 becomes very hot

    When I work on my laptop (4-5 hours) long hourks, he is so hot I can't even put my hand on the buttons, and sometimes it's just turns off = ((())
    I don't know what the problem is?

    Some people have the same problem?
    This bad trend started because I installed Windows XP instead of Vista standart.

    Laptot: Toshiba Satellite A200-1J0


    Oh. You have installed Win XP? Well buddy. In this case you must update the BIOS too!
    There is a BIOS designed especially for Win XP, and you should update if you changed your Win XP OS.

    In addition, you should install the Toshiba Power Saver and need to change the settings in the configuration of basic Toshiba Power Saver.
    You will find the option called cooling method. Set it to the Max Performance.

    In addition, you can set the speed of the CPU at a lower level processing and the method of control of the CPU to Auto.

    On the other hand, your laptop can overheat because of the clogged vents and cooling modules. I know this because my laptop temperature was high until I removed the dust from the cooling fans.
    I used a jet of compressed air. You can buy different computer dealers or online shops.

  • Satellite A200-1IZ becomes extremely slow using the power saving mode


    Since I installed windows 7 I can't use my computer in battery saving mode because it becomes extremely slow.

    It takes so long for trivial tasks. It is virtually unusable.

    Can anyone tell me the reason for the problem and if there is some sort of solution?

    Thank you.


    What performance maximum CPU you have for the power saving mode? Check the Windows power management settings: start > Control Panel > Power Options.

    The plan for the power saving mode settings and make sure that the maximum performance of the CPU is at 100% for the power saving mode. This increases the performance of the computer.

  • What thermal paste works well for Satellite A200?


    I have the problem of heat for months. I have tried serval OCZ Freeze extreme conductivity compound thermal times there worked in the first week. But the second week, it became worse and worse until the laptop could not start. Someone has suggestions thermal in which the brand name paste works fine for Satellite A200?

    Thanks in advance,


    I didn't change the thermal paste on my laptop Toshiba still but on my desktop computer, I use Arctic Cooling MX-3. I also read some tests on the Internet on the thermal fat and MX - 3 is still a better. Grease thermal OCZ is also good but the Arctic Cooling surpasses the OCZ.

    In addition, it is also important to clean the surface of the heatsink and processor. So, I can recommend the ArctiClean cleaning kit. Use Google to find some online shops where you can buy it. If you can ensure that all of the old thermal grease is removed properly.

    Good bye

  • Drop in severe performance on extended usage - Satellite A200-1AX

    Hello world
    I have problems with my Satellite A200 about long (3-4 + hrs) periods of use.

    After this period, the machine knows performance progressive, starting from piercing screams while playing sounds to complete unable to play videos or music, run the processor intensive software and so on. Also, the laptop seems to overheat a little beyond this period. In addition, while experiencing problems and try to improve the performance by closing unnecessary programs, I am unable to do it normally / the level of Task Manager (they are somehow insensitive to menu dialogue Vista or 3rd party software for killing processes).

    The problem started to appear after about 1 month because using Recovery Kit of products due to corrupted 7 days ago. DLL (it worked fine for the month).

    I also ran several software spies/virus checks (by ZoneAlarm/AVG/AdAware) no available, registry cleaning carried out, checked Vista and driver updates. However, the problem persists.

    What should I do to solve the problem? Everyone knows these declines in performance, before?

    It's very strange, and it is not easy to say why this can happen. Nobody knows what you do with your laptop to us or which applications you use for every day use. I use the Satellite A200 to my work and I use it more than 8 hours a day.

    My work is on the Internet, write emails and the intensive use of IE7 and Opera at the same time. All the time works Internet radio on WinAMP and time to copy different files from our corporate network. Everything works and you don't believe me, laptop is not yet hot.

    Please do not forget that your laptop is placed correctly on the table. Maybe you can put two CD boxes under the rear of your laptop to make the greatest distance between the party office and bottom of your laptop. Make sure that nothing is blocking the cooling fans and your laptop can be cooled properly.

    Disable the autostart for all applications, you do not need for your work. I don't know if there's anything you need, so many applications for virus/spyware controls. I guess that all programs soon or later, one of them got in the way with each other.

    It can be so many things, but no one here will be able to say with certainty what the problem is here.

  • Satellite A200 - Format C drive and reinstall


    I have a Toshiba Satellite A200 with a 32-bit, windows vista, who bought about 4 years ago. He became extremely slow and crashes on a regular basis. I want to format the C drive and reinstall windows vista. Afterwards, I'm going to re - install all drivers. I have questions about the process

    1. I have the recovery disk provided by Toshiba. Is this enough to do what I need from higher up? Also she's windows, because I checked the drive and could not find the Windows Setup files

    2. the recovery process reformatted all the partitions or only my windows drive (C :). I prefer if it puts only C: drive and not the other readers. However, I am still back up all just in case readers

    Thanks for the help.



    Yes, to format the C drive and reinstall Windows with the drivers and tools of Toshiba, the recovery disk is sufficient. Factory settings will be restored on your computer in order to have the same settings as you purchased the computer.

    Recovery disk reformatted the whole HARD disk, so you must all on another drive to backup and a backup of all important files should always be made only before reinstalling Windows ;)

  • Satellite A200 - 1C0 - overheating and close

    Hello world:

    I ve got a Satellite A200 - 1C0 PSAE0E and since one month, it stops due to overheating (hybridized with hot CPU). The fact is that when I restart the computer to the BIOS screen, fan of the processor begins to work at a very high speed (to cool the CPU), but to start Windows to start the fan suddenly stops, and the fact is that the CPU is always at 78 degrees celsius.

    I tried updating the BIOS, reinstall windows recovery partition and all components, but it does not solve anything. Also tried to install Windows 7 and still nothing and windows Xp and still nothing. I Don t know what else to do. Help will be apreciated.

    Thank you very much.


    To properly clean your cooling system, see this article from Toshiba:

    Another reason could be the old thermal grease and maybe, it must be renewed. If t, you can do it yourself, ask a technician for laptop help! :)

  • Satellite A200 - no lights, no fans

    Hello world

    I have a toshiba satellite a200-244, and after about 15 months of use it allows to turn off his own time. I have half of heart sought the problem but could not get through to the main problem that I discovered later was dust in the cooling system.
    Anyway, shortly after it to close on its own I use to reactivate it and surprisingly enough it does not as hot as she sometimes did back in the day. Yesterday, it's same thing and it would not turn on back again. No light, no fans no response at all outside of a clicking noise from the motherboard which I will explain later.
    I did my homework, checked the wall brackets, power and supported adapter on the power button while the battery was out and tried to turn on the cable alone. No response.
    I open the aswell of laptop down to the motherboard (unchecked the aswell of cooling system) when I connect the power cable, it makes a noise clicking which is quite fast and hardly audible. (this isn't the hard drive or any other party than anything was unplugged)
    I did some research, I think the motherboard is fried, but I would like to than some entries from you guys and if that is the case, what would be the best thing to do. I've never had a problem with my computer of this before madnitude and all the other before problems have been fixed by myself.
    Any estimate of $$ suggestions is appreciated.
    Thank you

  • Satellite A200 just turns off

    I have a satellite A200 that keeps turning off...

    first of all, it wouldn't start up, so removed the battery and plugged directly to AC and then it started again.

    Now, he just stops... It seems to be not too hot...

    What are the problems and solutions...

    Computer is 19 months old and it's very frustrating...


    In most cases, the blocked cooling modules are the reason for the higher temperature and why the laptop turns off automatically.
    You could clean the vents and cooling fans with a jet of compressed air.
    This would remove the dust inside the laptop.

  • Satellite A200-23U - strange Grapich/display problem


    I have a Toshiba Satellite A200-23U and it has a problem... sometimes graphics seems worse suddenly or are destroyed. A simple reboot can operate correctly, but it is very possible to reproduce... when I say that the graphics are getting worse I mean the resolution becomes a little bit worse, and the colors are unacceptable... some waves are created and the areas that were almost of the same color before the problem are now surrounded by a ring-wave , they have only one color with no shading and a few white spots are in these areas... after the restart, everything is ok...!

    I think the problem happens when the laptop is hot, but I'm not sure because he appeared also when the laptop was working only a few minutes in a cold environment and sometimes the device can be turned on for long hours and very hot, but the problem does not appear... Where did you think is the problem?

    The possible reasons, I can think of is the monitor or the cable that connects the graphics card with the monitor. Another reason that I n t think it's quite possible is the graphics card. I think this is less possible because if the problem exists on my laptop and I connect to another external screen as my TV, the problem still exists on the screen of the laptop, but the image on the external monitor is perfect...

    I'm ready to put new and bigger (2 GB I'll put 4gp) memory ram because the graphics card uses the RAM and the RAM is very high work when I play a game or watch a move.

    Do you think it will help or solve problems? What do you think I could do?

    Hi John

    What then? As I see you have good test connect your laptop to the TV. Always is that this test can help you see if the problem can be related to the graphics card, but if there is no problem graphics card is probably OK and this graphic problem must relate to something else.

    Of course, this virtual path, no one will be able to offer the exact diagnosis and say what can be the problem and we can only speculate what part of the material may be troublemaker.

    In my opinion there must be a problem between the motherboard and display. I don t think that the display is faulty, but perhaps the cable must be exchanged, perhaps connector on motherboard make problems. It is not easy to say what to do.

    Fact is that analysis only offer exact answer so I think you need professional help with this.
    Maybe you should contact the closest service Toshiba and ask for help. Let them check it all and ordering new parts if necessary.

    I put t think that you want to risk and disassemble the laptop everything yourself, have you?

  • Satellite A200 - 1 3 - readers of the need to run Windows XP Pro SP3


    I need help to find the disks required to run Windows XP Pro SP3 PT - PT on my Satellite A200 - 1 3.

  • Satellite A200 - Touchpad does not work

    I have a Satellite A200, I use a wireless USB mouse all the time. My touchpad to work even when I had plugged USB but now it has stopped working altogether. I don't find the location to see if it has been disabled somehow. Can someone help me?

    My A200 is also turn itself off at any time while I use it. I read a few steps at the beginning that said it may overheat. I have my camera plugged in all the time and always have the battery as well. I leave also my phone on most of the time as well. I have notieced that the wind box side can become quite hot as is the area of the touch pad. Overheating would cause these two questions? Need some advice please as soon as I'm ready to throw Toshy away.

    Hey mate,

    First the touchpad can turn on or off using the FN + F9 key combination. Check this box!
    I also using an external mouse all the time but this key combination only works for in-house so it s worth a try! ;)

    With regard to the problem of deactivation if could be a problem of overheating of course. The laptop must be cleaned periodically, and I do every 3 months for example because I use my laptop every day. I m always asked how much dust comes out if I clean it with a jet of compressed air. I followed the instructions in this document:

  • Satellite A200 - 19K - overheating/fan does not work

    These 2-3 days, my Satellite A200 - 19 k (PSAECE) was himself cut and was not very hot. I installed SpeedFan, but it does detect any fans. In addition, the fan on the base of the machine is not working. Anyone has any ideas for a solution?

    Any help is much apprieciated.
    Thank you


    In this case there is not one any magic solution. Overheating is a very serious problem for me. I see two possibilities here: either is dirty cooling grill and the laptop cannot be cooled correctly or there is a mechanical problem with cooling fan.

    If you really think that cooling fan is not working properly please contact the authorized Service partner as soon as possible. I imagine that the laptop has guaranteed valid and if the cooling fan is defective it will be exchanged free of charge.

    This is serious problem and please, do not try to do some experiments, but be sure that the hardware of the laptop is not defective.
