Replacements for Toshiba laptop – System Building and Upgrading
Well, this is a tough one. I normally tell people that I toss more Toshiba’s in the trash than any other computer, most of them lower end devices though. At least yours has some good hardware.
1. I don’t know what this means, please be more clear? Did you buy an aftermarket battery? This alone may be causing the Power Adapter to get hot, and the laptop itself…maybe? I don’t bother with batteries on older laptops, if they don’t work I just remove them. Ninjabatt sells some good ones here the the us, maybe across the pond too.
2. Nothing is better for overheating than being taken apart and cleaned out along with Thermal Paste if the laptop has been overheated. Considering this has an i7 there is more reason for it to be well maintained, as the i7 will run hotter than lower end models.
3. Generally speaking I would say you are having to many issues to bother trying to fix them all, not cost efficient. Keyboard replacements are not always as good as what the OEM puts in them.
4. Power Adapters are easy to find and most of the time don’t go bad. I always try to match the PN or at lease the Voltage, Wattage and Amperage.
If you have to pay for the work to be done than forget it. Just taking the laptop apart and cleaning it out is a bit of a job in itself. There is risk, and it will take a good tech about an hour and a half to do it well.
