Satellite A30 - question about the CPU temperature

Hi all

I have a Satellite A30 (model name: SA30-151, model number: PSA33E). I had the usual problems with overheating and closing, where I had to clean the radiator.

My question is, how hot the CPU must sit at and what temperature is dangerous?

I installed 'Hardware sensors Monitor' and the average temperature is about 55 c, but I saw it happen at 70 c when I'm pushing it.

I was not able to find something on the net about it and I can't find information on the Toshiba site.

Any help or advice would be appreciated, thanks...


The same temperature is on my Tecra M1. Believe me, there's really no reason to panic.

  • Satellite L40 - question about the CPU temperature


    I have a Toshiba Satellite L40 17 Q with Intel Celeron M CPU.

    The usual device temperature is about 60 degrees Celsius. I read that the Tj to this type of processors is 100 degrees Celsius.

    So my question is dedicated to the owners of laptops equipped with Intel Celeron M processors and of course for the hardware gurus.
    Is the operative temperature of 60 degrees Celsius of normal, and if not how do I decrease.
    My laptop is new and I make sure that the air flow openings are not jammed.

    Thank you in advance!


    Don't worry, the CPU temperature. 60 degrees Celsius is certainly within the normal range, and there is no reason to worry about this. On my laptop Tecra, I noticed the temperature CPU about 62 degrees Celsius and drive HARD around 40 degrees Celsius.

  • Satellite L850-046 - question about the CPU temperature

    Hi Experts,

    I bought the Toshiba laptop 9 months ago, but now notice the temperature warms. I check the software Toshiba Health Monitor and the CPU temperature range of 46 to 53%, fan speed 50%-63%.

    Is - this normal readings?

    I am now using a desk fan pointing in the vents hoping that additional traffic can maintain better temperatures.

    What would be the ideal and the overheating of the readings to look out for.

    Thank you very much

    Because cell phone use for 9 months, I recommend you to clean the cooling fans.
    The fact is that from time to time the dust and debris that may affect the performance of the cooling fans, and this could lead to a higher temperature.

    I clean my fans from time to time using a jet of compressed air.
    It helps to get rid of dust and to lower the temperature.

  • Satellite M40x: Question about normal CPU temperature


    Can someone tell me what is the normal operating of the processor (Intel Pentium M 730 1.6 GHz) for the Satellite M40x series?


    Well, it's not easy to say what the normal temperature may be because it depends on the central unit using performance. If the CPU works more with the performance of 100% if the CPU temperature is higher.
    Also, I found this very interesting site on different processors and maximum temperature of the cover.

  • Satellite P100: Question on the CPU temperature

    I put the cooler Bios in performance.
    Can someone help me with this?
    Please and
    Best regards


    It is a normal process that the temperature rises when you play games.
    All the measures implemented should run with maximum efficiency and produce heat.
    There is nothing unusual.

    I don't think that the temperature is hot. The fan starts to cool the CPU if the temperature rises to a particular level. Cooling modules does not run all the time. If the laptop gets hot the operating system should automatically stops the unit. It is a thermal protection which is a part on Toshiba laptops.
    But if the laptop works properly and it closes then I guess we're all ok.
    Enjoy your laptop ;)

  • Satellite SM30-604: 4.25 SpeedFan and question about the right temperature?

    SpeedFan 4.25 is on my Toshiba Satellite SM30 604.
    Until recently, the CPU usage shown was variable.
    Compared to a low percentage (green dots) to somewhere around maximum, according to what I was doing (I have never game, but use purely professional things like Word, Excel, PowerPoint and many websites).

    Temperatures in most of the green time, the high 40-links, the low 50-links (I then scroll to the top of the Speed01 of the fan from 0 to 50% and 50%, it starts to run). I sometimes add an external fan, I work sometimes in very hot climates).
    I have the readings of the time 4.
    Local temperature: 49 c (with this temp color varies between a Green V and a red arrow pointing upwards).
    Temp distance: 85 (with a flame)
    HC0: 26 c (with a green (V)
    Temp1: 86 (with a red flame).


    These very high temperatures, I've had for a day. The fan is working (I hear it, I can feel. "I can see, because I partly dismantled the laptop.) But the Speed01 is 0%, and there is no reaction on the adjustment upward. Or playback is 100% without reaction to setting down. And rotating or disable "auto fan speed has no effect.
    And without any other program running, the CPU usage increased a few seconds after switching on to 100%. I do not notice a significant slow down in the speed of my applications when I start using them. And a virus today scan did not reveal all the important things.
    I can't activate my taskbar more.

    Who has some answers for me. Green in this area?

    Thank you

    Hello Han

    Your ad is very nice and very interesting, but you'll be very happy if someone can explain all this because you are using a non-Toshiba software. It is always recommended to use the original software because software Toshiba designed has been tested and it can just to protect the hardware components.

    Use of software from third party is always at your own risk, and if you have any problems or questions, please contact their own support. They have much more experience with your applications.

    I can just tell you that you should be careful where your laptop is placed and make sure that the device can take a deep breath and cool down properly.

    Good luck!

  • Satellite A30: Question about Bios Update August 8

    Good afternoon

    Am I right to assume that the update in August 2007 for my Satellite A30 is to allow him to work with MS Vista? There is no documentation with the download of the bios, but the bios description says "provides the additional functionality.

    Can anyone describe what that this added functionality provides and is it really helps in 3-year upgrade of a machine? I use XP on it

    Kind regards

    Dave Smith

    Hello Dave

    I'm pretty sure that old Satellite A30 is not taken in charge of Vista. Unfortunately there is no public document on the update of the BIOS and the exact list this update is good for. One thing I can say with certainty: If your OS works well and stabile let go and take advantage of Windows XP Home edition.

  • Satellite A100 - questions about the keys to the left hand and added value package


    The work of doesn´t special keys on left hand. I mean, the keys under the power on button which usually starts the web browser and works with the DVD.

    Another question. The value-added package that was installed on my laptop has got a call from the Toshiba Fash utility maps. When I upgraded to the latest version (previosly I had to uninstall it) this SW is not installed. How can I get it back?

    Thanks in advance.


    Value added contains several applications:
    -Toshiba components pilot common
    -Toshiba Utilities
    -Toshiba PC Diagnostic tool
    -Toshiba Power Saver
    -Toshiba Button support
    -Toshiba zooming utility
    -Toshiba Flash cards

    So as you can see, the button support is included in this package. I don't know what the problem is on your laptop, but when the VAP is installed correctly the multimedia buttons and Flash cards should work correctly.

    Try again please remove VAP system, restart the computer and install the latest version available. This latest version works well on the different laptop models (on my Satellite P200D too) and it should work on your too.

    I only have xp. My computer works fine if I download the SP2 version as I've heard that it doesn't always.

    Don t worry, the next service pack SP3 is released and believe me: it s better to have a service pack installed, and then nothing. Just don't hesitate and update your system, it will work... MUST work ;)

  • Satellite 2410: Question about the different ways to use BlueTooth


    I can't find a place to buy a bluetooth module for my Toshiba Satellite 2410 - the manual says I can, and I know that there is space on the underside of the laptop to insert it.

    I can't seem to find one to buy - anyone know if they actually exist, because I'm starting to think not? ! .. .where is the best way to bluetooth enable laptop to buy a USB adapter?
    If so, a good market will affect the download speed when using the Internet? And what is the difference between an SD card and a USB bluetooth adapter?

    Any help would be appreciated.


    I don't know your name of your Satellite 2410 but I found that a similar Satellite 2410 603 on the Bluetooth device is not available. Only the WiFi card is optional. This means that it is possible to install a wireless network card. The slot for the update of the Wlan card you will find at the bottom of the unit AND NOT the Bluetooth slot.

    However, if you want to use BT technology so the easiest and cheapest way is to buy the USB Bluetooth key.

    PS: BT has nothing to do with the internet, and it has no negative influence on the data downloading or transmission of data from the internet.

  • Satellite M30: Questions about the battery, SD, energy-saving card reader

    1. After looking through the forums, it seems that my problem is not uncommon: my Toshiba Satellite M30 seems to have a life of the battery for about 10 minutes. Power not connected to the adapter, Windows detects 100%... 99%... Then 3%. Throughout the life of the battery is about 10 minutes, and I don't know why. Does anyone know? (Info from BG: laptop about 2 years, not too used)

    2. How will I know exactly WHAT model of Toshiba Satellite M30 I? (There is a code after the M30-part - I need this to find out what batteries I need to buy to replace)

    3. What is the nearest Service Center, I can talk to the United Kingdom with regard to my battery problem? From Toshiba Web site lists 20 companies different with Toshiba in them to the United Kingdom, and I have no idea which we touch!

    4. my SD card reader is a bit faulty. To put a SD card, no message appears to recognize the card - the laptop just doesn't recognize at all, and I do not see "SD card" or equivalent in "My Computer". However, if I put an SD card, and then restart the computer, I can see the SD card, it simply does not update while the computer is on, when I restart - cures for this?

    5. Finally, can I download the software of management of TOSHIBA POWER SAVER? I downloaded from this site but right now the only option when I open the TOSHIBA CONSOLE is 'Mouse' - there is no standby power options or network options or anything.

    Thanks in advance, sorry there are so many questions and they are so different!



    1) looks like a dead battery. It s not unusual that the battery will discharge performance after about 2 years. As far as I remember, you can load and unload the battery for about 500 times. After this period, the lifetime battery decreases faster. The same symptom occurs for example with a cell phone battery. I think you should ask the new battery Toshiba service partner. PS: The guarantee covers the battery for about a year.

    (2) it's very easy at the bottom of the unit, you will find a label with the serial number and the name of detailed specifications.

    (3) visit this site:
    You will find the database with ASP together all over the world. These guys are responsible for replacements, repairs, etc.

    (4) number of SD card is very strange. On my Satellite SD card window opens if I insert the SD card. You can try to remove the SD card from the Device Manager reader and after that new reboot, the OS should has new charge card CD driver. Eventually, it helps.

    (5) I don't know what you mean exactly but on the Toshiba driver page, you will find the tool power Toshiba compatible and taken in charge. If you have downloaded from the area Sat M30 driver so I think you can use it only on this laptop.

    take easy B-)

  • Satellite C650 - Question about the capacity of the HARD disk

    I just bought a Satellite C650. The specifications indicate 320 GB hard drive, but the diagnostic system indicates the disk space is 286 GB (free capacity is GB 261).

    Please indicate why this might be the case.

    Hi 12345,

    It is normal that you lose disk space after formatting the drive. 286GB is the normal capacity of a formatted hard drive 320, so everything is ok with your laptop.

    If you want to learn more about capacity on hard drives and need more technical information, why you only 286GB you can read this interesting Wiki:

  • Satellite A300 - question about the MIDI connection

    Can someone help me?

    I have a computer laptop satellite A300 and want to connect it to my computer to stream TV and movies.
    I don't see where I would plug MIDI to my computer.
    Is it possible to do with this model?

    If not, can I get a plug that would stretch the capacity of the computer or I have to get a new computer?

    Thank you

    Sorry, but I m confused
    You said you want to connect the Satellite A300 to a computer
    Is this correct?

    You can connect two computers via a LAN cable. But I have no idea why you talking about connecting MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface)

  • Satellite A210 - question about the battery life

    I have a problem: my laptop works only 1 hour of unplugged to electricity, so my battery died after working of 55minutes (I mean I look at the pictures or typing in WORD). Is this normal? How long is the average battery life?
    My model is SATELLITE A210/1AP (4000mAh) (my laptop is new; I bought it a week ago)
    Please write how much your maximum battery work.

    It is not easy to discuss this topic. With similar activity, I can use my Satellite A200, about 1 hour and 15 minutes. I don't know how you're using your laptop, but I recommend you to use all the power settings that can make the life of the battery a little longer.

    Check the method of cooling, power profile, reduce the brightness of the display and turn off WIFI if you do not use and so on.

    You must also understand that Vista needs far more resources than Windows XP Home edition and the life of the battery under Vista is not identical with Windows XP Home edition.
