is the temp diode defective or something?
Pack it up and send it back is my suggestion. Where did you have it repaired the first time?

THIS IS THE PROGRAM: http://home.kc.rr.com/aitf311/tutorial.zip
BLU, a lot of other M30 owners have used the program and it worked perfectly, so u have absolutely no risk compared to me!!
i have same problem with m55-s139...
its appear after changing CPU from celeron M to pentium M...
second CPU is pentium M (dothan) 1.7.. but now it works on 598 mhz, i already tryed utils, that are posted here, update bios to latest version...
also some testing programms shows me that i have P3 or P2 600mhz with stepping 6.
I tried this utility on an M30 and my computer locked up solid during option 1 (after selecting option 2 on the first screen) on a line that read "CPU configuration table select program V1.0." Am I the only person who has been unsuccessful using this utility on an M30? It was my last hope to get unstuck from 598MHz!!!
Can anyone help?
by the way, i have toshiba M30 and does anyone know if it support Dothan @ 533FSB or not?
Sorry to resurrect this thread.
I have a satellite m30-742 recently needed a new motherboard, which has been fitted. CPU speed is now at 600MHz but should be at 1700Mhz, FSB at 100 should be 400. Also the fan appears not to work, although I can manually activate it using an external program.
Many of the links you guys have put up don't exist anymore.
I've tried downloading the same/similar fix called pom200t150.ima which I found on another thread.
But I'm unable to get it to boot in MS-DOS, have tried the ultimate BOOT cd to get to MS-Dos then when I run the iso I get an error.
My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
I'd really appreciate getting any help fixing this.
It could require a BIOS update....check thru the link and see if it might help
Check this thread out
Yep the thread you linked is exactly where I found the pom200t150.ima fix which I'm unable to install.
Well the fix is supposed to be on floppy format I mean the pom200t150.ima fix which updates the flash ram or something like that.
Basically it tells my Mobo what the CPU is.
Trouble is I never had the external Toshiba floppy drive, which is how most people I've read about have fixed it.
Have tried to burn the contents to a cd and then boot it up at startup but no result.
If anyone could tell me just how I could I could get startup to boot from a specific file on a cd namely the SETTLB_D.BAT file which I need to boot from this would enable me to fix it.
As is there is no way to get onto real DOS without loading into windows, no F5, F8 keys work etc. so I can start the file off the cd manually.
Managed to nail it!
It was indeed fixed by not the pom200t150.ima fix but an earlier pom200t1.ima fix which I ran in an external floppy drive!
This thread was instrumental in me finding the fix!
You can also find what I've done here:
Re-installing windows fixed my laptop fan as well!
Would like to thank everyone on this thread and forum, thank you thank you!
