Heat injury
Pressure or impact damage
Do not apply heavy pressure to the computer or subject it to any form of
strong impact as this can damage the computer's components or otherwise
cause it to malfunction.

Cleaning the computer

To help ensure long, trouble-free operation, keep the computer free of dust
and dirt, and use care with all liquids around it.
Never spray cleaner directly onto the computer or let liquid run into any part
of it. Never use harsh or caustic chemical products to clean the computer.

Moving the computer

While the computer is designed for flexible day-to-day usage you should
exercise a few simple precautions when moving it in order to help ensure
trouble-free operation.
User's Manual
Avoid prolonged physical contact with the computer. If the computer is
used for long periods, its surface can become very warm. While the
temperature will not feel hot to the touch, if you maintain physical
contact with the computer for a long time, for example if you rest the
computer on your lap or if you keep your hands on the palm rest, your
skin might suffer a low-heat injury.
If the computer has been used for a long time, avoid direct contact
with the metal plate supporting the various interface ports as this can
become hot.
The surface of the AC adaptor can become hot when in use but this
condition does not indicate a malfunction. If you need to transport the
AC adaptor, you should disconnect it and let it cool before moving it.
Do not lay the AC adaptor on a material that is sensitive to heat as the
material could become damaged.
Be careful not to spill liquids into the computer. If the computer does
get wet, turn the power off immediately and let the computer dry
completely - in these circumstance you should get the computer
inspected by an authorized service provider in order to assess the
scope of any damage.
Clean the plastics of the computer using a slightly water dampened
You can clean the display screen by spraying a small amount of glass
cleaner onto a soft, clean cloth and then wiping the screen gently with
the cloth.

    I purchased a c55 laptop and have no passwords so I can't do anything with it can you help me?

    I purchased the laptop for a song due to a crushed LCD screen
    A few months later a salvaged LCD screen became available but the chassis was a little bit larger at the hinge assembly by an 3/16
    After removing the glass from the lid chassis it fit into the rightful housing.
    O​riginally I'd removed the assembly hinges from the body thus opening the clamshell completely as well the LCD screen associated connector and the black and white (assuming) WIFI connection wires which is the main focus of this post

    I cannot find a service manual/vid​eo/informa​tional of the exact location as the ends appear to snap into a given contact hole
    After chasing the wires through their gides I am left with ambiguous options at best
    Any info would be much appreciate​d ~THX

    This Toshiba labtop satelite c50 is a faulty machine. On the manual it says it had an eject button for to open the CD drive unfortunat​ely it does have one.
    PC world sold me this computer some months ago and I recommend not to use this shop due to selling faulty goods.
    Sta​y away from Toshiba laptop because the faulty has not been rectified.
