SOURCE: targus chill mat not working properly

Has to be held on with tape? Does it fall out of the usb port?

Or is the usb port broken and require the cable be held in a certain position to make contact? Or is it the end on the mat itself?

May need to have your usb ports resoldered, or possibly a new cable, but never seen a cable go bad. What happens if you use the usb port for other things?

SOURCE: Targus notebook cooling chill mat.

I have the same problem, and I looked inside to see the cause- the interior part for the power is poorly made and comes loose. That's the reason for the one fan not working and it getting weak. Sometimes wiggling the cord or trying to stabilize it will help. But, as I learned the hard way, it will eventually break. Its a poorly made product, and I've had mine about 4 months now and it completely broke today. I opened it and did my best to stabilize the part, but... it will break. As best as I can tell, its a poorly made product and there is no permanent solution.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: My fans have stopped working

click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you should see a yellow question mark?
right click to reinstall drivers
if you can see your usb drive but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver if this fails to fix the problem
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red white green black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems for a computer and its parts also
scroll to disk drives if you can see your drive + to expand right click you should see options update driver disable uninstall scan for hardware changes
select properties you should see options in the general tab to troubleshoot policies volumes driver and details under the driver tab you will have the options to check the driver details update driver rollback driver or uninstall
if your computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it
hope this helps

Perhaps the motor is bad ... if you tried "everything " does that include taking the cover off and checking to see if the plug is loose and turning the blade to see if it's free?

Targus Chill Mat. I keep getting error with windows 7 that the device is not working properly. It operates but an error keeps popping up every 10 seconds. So I can not use it. What is the fix?


Belkin makes a surge plug that has usb powered ports.

this is a Gr8 option it takes the poering off the pc.

this should fix ya up.

Good Luck

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.
