I know quite a few agents that have Toshiba laptops. Here is a recall from Toshiba so in case you missed the CNN article here it is again. There is a link within the article that will take you to the Toshiba recall site as well as some preliminary measures that you can take.
I, personally, have a Toshiba but it doesn’t appear to be in the recall. I had a Gateway YEARS ago that had this very problem, had it repaired NUMEROUS times and the overheating still never stopped.
“Toshiba has announced the voluntary recall of about 41,000 notebook computers worldwide at risk of overheating and burning users.
The recalled models are the Satellite T135, Satellite T135D and Satellite ProT130 notebook computers, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Consumers are asked to immediately download the latest version of a software program called BIOS. The program will detect whether a recalled notebook is overheating, and will disable the computer’s external power and alert the consumer to contact Toshiba for a free repair. The software is available at http://laptops.toshiba.com/about/consumer-notices. Customers without Internet access are asked to contact the company for installation of the program.”
