Targus Chill Mat Fan On Fritz

The fan rotor is stuck due to accumulation of dust. Take out the fan and clean it. Put a few drops of alcohol or lacquer thinner on the rotor/bushing assembly while manually turning its blades to loosen the hardened dirt until the fan freely spins like the good one. If it does not work, replace the defective fan if spare is available.

the laptop is overheating and shuts down to prevent hardware failure. Use canned air to blow dust out from the fans that may improve it a little.

targus chill mat not working properly

This problem is being caused by a wire becoming disconnected from the switch in the usb power cord. The easiest way to solve this problem is to open the switch using a flat blade like a knife, and either reconnect the loose wire yourself or to completely remove the switch and connect the wires together completing the circuit and allowing the fan to operate. I hope this helps.
