I am looking to buy a new laptop. I bought a Toshiba in 2007 and had it repaired in 2010 (replaced all boards) under warranty (which was great and why I'd consider buying another). However, the laptop has gotten hot from the start and recently had a thermal shutdown (perhaps just because of its age, I don't know). I've managed to cool it down to keep it going, but I'd like to know if this is still an issue, not just with Toshiba but other brands as well. Thanks.

Hi, Toshiba laptops does not have a wide spread overheating issue in their range of laptops and overheating is usually caused by clogged up fans.

Thanks. I vacuumed the current fan and got some improvement. Do you know what the CPU should run at? I've got mine down to 56 celcius, but I've heard some people say it should be around 40 celcius.

Depends on the CPU model as they all have different maximum temperature but 56 celcius is perfectly fine, no need to worry about at those temperatures.

What problem I did see when working on Toshiba's that always ran hot were caused by defective heat sink assemblies. The Heat Pipes had failed and were not carrying the heat to the fins.

I had to replace the motherboards in both of those due to the continuous overheating. Fortunately they were both under warranty and I could still get the Motherboards from Toshiba ASP (Authorized Service Provider) parts. One thing About Toshiba and Lenovo any warranty parts they shipped out overnight so we got them the next working day.

 

I own both brands as well as Acer laptop and ASUS Motherboards.

 

Good Luck
