Hi, guys, This problem has irritated me for a long time. Although I can solve it for the moment it goes wrong, it will appear again when I focus on my job. The built-in wireless adapter is always closed automatically by itself. Every time in the middle of my working time, it will interrupt my pace for work.

 

Another case:Last night, I was just watching a film when suddenly my Toshiba Laptop shut down by itself and could not start up by pressing the on/off button. Even the supply power light won't work. It was so horrible because the bottom of it is very hot and I thought some part must be burn down I had been worried about the problem till now. I really want to know why .PS: I have use this for more than 3 years.

 

I imagined if the hot problem is also the cause of the automatic wifi turn-off. Can some person help me to avoid repeating the repair of my Wifi?Or relieve the overheated phenomenon?

Oh..it seems I have gotten something like this. But is there any relationship between the dust-clean and the WIFI turn off?

It would solve the over heating which could be the cause of the wifi shutdown.

Hey man, as if it is not because of over-heating problem.Later the same situation happened again now and then. I came to the manufacture and they checked out the problem seems to the damage of my built-in wireless adapter. Is there any possibility to use the house wifi still with my Toshiba?

What do you mean by damage, and also what do you mean house wifi?

House wifi simply means wifi in my house. They just said "Damage".I think maybe there is something wrong with my  wireless card?

Most recent laptops have a wireless card that is attached to the motherboard inside.  If you had it checked and they stated it was damaged, it needs replaced or you will continue to get the drops/issues you are experiencing.  Most wireless cards are fairly easy to replace and have youtube videos to show you how to do it.  The alternative is to take it to a repair shop and have them do it for a fee.  The wireless card can usually be bought off newegg or amazon for cheap ($50 or less in most cases from what I have seen).

The laptop runs very hot

--- Right now to me this is the issue and it has been building up for some time.

--- Although the focus seems to be on the wireless, it could be an overheating processor, fan operation and who knows what else

--- Oh yes, what power option plan are you using? If it’s the high-performance plan, switch to balanced

--- It seems that when the laptop shuts down you cannot restart the computer but it will restart later after it has cooled down

--- If you think it’s still the wireless adapter, plug an ethernet cable in from your ISP modem/router into the computers ethernet port so you can run wired.

--- If the computer still shuts down, the cause of your problem isn’t a damaged wireless router (even though by now it could be damaged), additional troubleshooting is necessary to determine the root cause of the shut down

--- As far as the possibility of a PS problem after 3+ years of usage, that’s definitely a possibility

 

To review what’s been happening

You  can solve the problem when it goes wrong, but it will appear again. I imagine what you are saying is that you can get your wireless to work ok but the shutdown issue appears again

The built-in wireless adapter is always closing itself automatically

You were watching a film and the laptop shut itself down and you couldn’t start the computer by pressing the on’off button

You want to know why there is a problem with the PS as it has been in use for more than 3 years

Using a can of air didn’t help

Someone from the manufacturer came and said there could be damage to the built in wireless adapter

 

You mention your place of work and that you want to be able to use your house wi-fi

--- So do you have the problem at both places?

--- Maybe you work from home?

--- The intent of the question is does this happen at more than one place?
