Tecra 8100 CPU gets too hot

Well, some may remember my previous post about the fan activation in my Tecra 8100.

This laptop came to me as a gift by a customer, because the screen didn't work. After some research, the problem was the internal cold cathode that was broken. Once replaced: Yes! a free book for me! It was a Pentium III 650 Mobile, with 64 MB of RAM and a 12 GB hard drive. I replaced all the components (which are now on sale, btw), and now has a Pentium III 850 Mobile, 512 MB of RAM and a 40 GB hard drive. Someone gave me a card PCMCIA of WiFi 11 Mbit/s, and now how it works with Windows XP Professional and updated Toshiba Utilities and drivers downloaded from Toshiba USA.

What's the buzz? SpeedFan, Motherboard Monitor and other monitoring utilities reported temperatures up 72a? Aºc in the processor. I opened the computer laptop and put thermal paste instead of the sticker that has the heat sink. Temperature guard high and utilities Toshiba even with parameters ' cooling high performance "does not have the fan to cool the cpu...

I hangs at all, but the business cards and pcmcia laptop have too hot even with the system works with any of the applications running. Lowering of the CPU clock or the ratio helps not at all.

I think putting a fan somewhere extra to force air circulation and that cool the cpu, unless...

... Toshiba could develop a utility that allows you to directly control the fan speed. I don't know if the thermal management is hardware or software-driven. If it is a software-driven, it should be easy to create a utility that directly access the fan and temperature records. It would be MUCH better than simply let the computer decide when and how long to activate the fan.

I'm sure that Toshiba engineers are busy with more important things which will not create the utility for us, so...

.. What to check or do to cool the CPU at more appropriate values?

Thank you all!


As in you previous announcement describes the Toshiba power saver controls the CPU and fan usage.
This software works very well, and if you use the laptop as prescribed, you should not get all the problems and overheating problems.

The problem is that you have changed all the devices and parts on you laptop. The new parts are effective, but produce more heat.
On the laptop you can cool the CPU with a small fan, and if she goes out, it is necessary to decrease the performance of the processor.
It is a simple fact. All these functions can be set with energy saver.
In addition, it is very important that your cooling module is clear and free from dust and debris obstruct the work of fan.

  • Tecra 8100 - CPU max, DVD - ROM and BIOS update issues

    1. I have a 500 MHz processor on my 8100. I would like to upgrade to maximum capacity. I think it's 800 MHz since it is the highest, the series went to.
    But if it's 800 MHz, any Mobile PIII on this frequency do? Or should I check for special settings of the processor?

    2. I don't have a floppy, or ways to get drive one. And I'm not going to ebay one just for an update of the BIOS. Any ideas? A bootable CD with the files will do?

    3. What is the location of the DVD-ROM and what alternative models can I use? The 8200 went up to 8 x DVD - RW. Could I go further?

    Thank you. I hope that my post is OK like this instead of three different positions.

    1 take a look at the other Tecra 8100 models to determine which processors are compatible.

    2. I don't think that would work a bootable CD, you must follow a special procedure to update the BIOS and requires a floppy drive. If there is a version of Windows, you must use that instead.

    3 upgrade the DVD player can be difficult because you must use the correct master/slave settings, and it must have the same design of the façade of the original.

    Personally, I'm selling the laptop and buy a second hand faster one. It can work out to be cheaper.

  • Tecra 8100 - CPU Upgrade

    I have an old Tecra 8100. I've updated the 700 to 900 Mhz CPU. It works but the CPU is always set to 100 x 7 = 700 Mhz. I think this would work if I find a tool that can update the record DMI for the CPU. DMICFG can read the values but could not write them.
    Could someone tell my worms a solution?
    I think there is a Toshiba tool for this.



    AFAIK more CPU, 800 MHz which was delivered with the Tecra 8100. I think it's limit.
    I found other topics about changing the CPU on the Tecra 8100.


    Maybe this help you: entered the BIOS using "Esc" + F1 during POST. Past processor speed of 'Low' to 'High' (used for recording of the battery).

  • Satellite A300 - Touchpad gets too hot

    I bought a Satellite A300 last week and I noticed that when I use the computer for an hour or so the touchpad becomes very hot.
    And also the area of the left hand next to the touchpad.

    Is this normal? Is there a way to reduce it?

    Thank you


    Hi Pedro,

    I put t know what what is for you hot and wasn't, but on my Toshiba Satellite laptop I've never had a problem that it too hot.

    Normally, I recommend to clean the laptop with a jet of compressed air, but I think that is not necessary because the laptop is only a week.
    Maybe the fan or the heatpipe is malfunctioning. Or the thermal grease to be renewed

    I put t know but in your case, I would go to an authorized service provider. Technicians can check your laptop and it should be free, because the laptop must be under warranty if it s a week-old.

  • Satellite L40 CPU is too hot?

    I just bought a Satellite L40 with a intel T2370 processor and I have a feeling that its temperature is high enough.
    Everest ultimate sensors show a temperature around 70 c during operation.

    This temperature is normal?
    Other users have a similar temperature?

    Thank you.


    The temperature of your laptops is certainly not too high!

    You need to know some important facts;
    First a few 3rd party tools don t always provide values for temperature of 100%!
    Second, the internal temperature is constantly changing.

    Running some games, videos, or other high performance programs would lead to higher heat dissipation and a higher temperature
    This is a common behavior of laptop so don t be worried that something is wrong with your laptop ;)

    By the way; the laptop supports an overheating protection. It will stop automatically if the temperature is too high.
    If the computer laptop doesn t turns off automatically, your CPU temp is ok.

  • I'm afraid that my computer get too hot

    Original title: computer HOT!

    My computer feels hot to the touch near the fan, y at - it no way to fure the fan works properly, or a way to make it work better?

    My computer feels hot to the touch near the fan, y at - it no way to fure the fan works properly, or a way to make it work better?

    Assuming that the fan is running, it is likely that there are a lot of dust in the case. Buy a can of compressed air, open the case and take it outside where you have to blow off the dust with the can of air compressed.

    Do * not * use a vacuum cleaner, which can fry the motherboard with a discharge of static electricity.

  • Satellie Pro P100 - overheating or too hot


    I have a Satellite Pro P100, PSPAEE, that runs way too hot, the GET so hot that I have to stop using it as my hand keyboard and the base is sick after getting too hot.

    It all started when I did a lot of driver and BIOS updates, because I have them all at the same time it is difficult to know if it is a driver or the last BIOS that causes this problem.

    Before I got them used fan be racing monte and down constantly like a yoyo, even when it is cold, the BIOS updated has now run fairly regularly but I don't think it of this or not, this alone.

    I don't see a older BIOS on the support pages so don't think that I can do this backward. I've seen a few posts about having to use the Toshiba NVIDIA video drivers, otherwise it can overheat, but all my drivers are of Toshiba.

    Toshiba Support or anyone else has any ideas, what happened only since the BIOS and update the driver so I can't imagine it's only my machine who suffers with this.

    Thank you



    Have you tried to clean up your laptop using a jet of compressed air? This could blow out the dust from the cooling fans. I always use a can of compressed air to clean my laptop because it is very easy and I you must remove.

    In addition, it would be interesting to know what are the OS you have installed.

    Have you downloaded the BIOS for your laptop model (PSPAEE)?

    If you Windows XP, you can change the method of cooling and Toshiba Power Saver under Vista in power options.
    Check it!

    Could be heat related - try using a small fan to blow into the air intakes to see if that helps.

  • X61s CPU is very hot


    My X61s is 2 years old. I just clean up several months ago.

    Thanks for your suggestions!

    I cleaned the fan. It seems normal now

  • Tecra 8100 hangs up and CPU gets hot

    I updated the bios and the performance max cooling and the dynamics processor and then put in a new HD. I then installed Win XP.
    During the installation of the cooling fan was still running and completed the installation of the OS. Now, my laptop crashing all the time. The hanging of the changes of time (between 5 and 60 minutes).

    I noticed that the fan rarely during 5 s maximum, and the computer gets very hot. The fan is supposed to turn all the time by running and changing speeds according to temp or is it normal that it be turned off. Are there steps that I missed during the installation or special drivers to install.

    Hi frank.

    Tecra 8100 is a little older. Am I wrong? I checked the page of the Toshiba driver and there is not a lot of XP drivers for this Tecra series. Most of the drivers are for OS W2k Win98and.

    I recommend you to check the cooling fans. Maybe dust and debris inside prevents air flow correctly and so the laptop can not be cooled very well.

    It s a fact that stuck fans are mainly responsible for overheating problems

  • Boot Tecra 8100 - would it be CPU malfunction?

    A few months ago, I had a problem with my Tecra 8100 - does not start, everything seems OK but nothing on the screen (no post). I bought another motherboard and replace the old 1 MB, but the problem remains the same: everything seems normal, led lights turn just as it should, cooler works well but nothing on the screen.

    I tried to connect the external display, but there is nothing on it, too. I have two memory modules and I tried all combinations with them (they are OK).

    Is it possible that the problem is something with CPU - I don't know what else could be the problem?

    Please, can someone give me help!

    I assume you mean on this subject:

    Well, as mentioned in the first thread, it's not easy to say what could be wrong.
    Of course, it is possible that the CPU malfunctions and, therefore, you cannot use your laptop's!

    But these are only suggestions, and no one will be able to provide an exact error diagnostic.

  • Question about CPU on Tecra 8100


    I think I bought the toshiba tecra 8100 on summer (when I had the money), but I have question. What is this laptop processor?
    I read it as 600 mhz, 700 mhz, 800 mhz and 850 mhz, but what really are? Or it's possible overclock via the bios etc?


    I Don t understand the question is what a laptop processor. It s the thing that makes your 'computer' computer or think. No matter what.
    The speed is set in Mhz, so it depends on the model how Mhz, the processor of your machine has.

    The exact clock speed is written on the label on the bottom of your machine. You can also try CPU - Z to determine the exact speed of your processor.

    And NO, not possible to overclock the CPU of machines it s.
