Toshiba Recalls Notebook Computers for Overheating

Atlanta 9/04/2010 03:16 AM GMT (TransWorldNews)

Toshiba has issued a worldwide recall of about 41,000 notebook computers. The company says the computers may overheat and burn users. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, there have been 129 reported cases of the plastic casing around the AC adapter plug melting due to overheating.

The affected modes are the Satellite T135, Satellite T135D and Satellite ProT130. They were sold between August 2009 and August 2010.

Toshiba is asking customers to visit their website and download a software program called BIOS. BIOS will detect whether a recalled computer is overheating. If the computer overheats, the program will direct the customer to contact Toshiba for a free repair before it disables the computer’s external power. Customers without access to the Internet can call Toshiba to get the software.
