Hardware issues resulting from a virus attack
The presence of spyware in your Toshiba Satellite U500 might slow down the system. The system will be slow while connecting to the Internet and also slows the performance down. Viruses can also attack the system while downloading the file from websites that are not certified or trusted. The entry of a virus can cause hardware issues. You must also have updated antivirus software and should perform daily scans to avoid attacks.
Another major issue is overheating of the processor. The CPU produces more heat when too many programs are loaded. Also blocking of air vents and improper working of the fan can cause overheating. So, in order to avoid overheating, clean the airs vents and see whether your fan is working properly. Overheating can lead to a system shut down. And this must be avoided to prevent loss of data or corruption of the data on the system.
Sound problems can occur in the Toshiba Satellite U500. You must first check whether there is a driver present in the Device Manager. If not, install it. Be careful in installing the drivers.
