Hi. The common problem with these is dust build up in the heatsink fins, but I would have thought the fans would be runnnig hard. try cleaning the dust out by putting a vaccuum cleaner against the grills and around the fan intakes. apart from that, they can have fan failure when trying to run at idle speeds (they may still work at boot) - especially if the fan(s) were running with a slight rattle previously.

Fan noise


Is it free of dust , vents? The fan always comes on at boot. The RPM's will change when the sensors detect a certain temp to prevent overheating and damage to your machine. Is it getting sufficent air flow from the fan intake on the bottom through the machine to the exit vents?

The fan on my satellite L645D-S4050 runs constantly and drains the battery very quickly. Battery life is about an hour as opposed to the advertised 4 hours. I have seen mention of installing and...


First Visit http://support.toshiba.com up top Click "Download" and search out your Toshiba Model Laptop. You could try a BIOS upgrade for it, it won't hurt anything, but I seriously doubt your fan is draining the battery that fast, even if it does run all the time. It's possible there is dust in there causing the fan to run all the time, or your power management settings need adjusting. Although the BIOS upgrade, if applicable, may help the fan, and should, frankly, be run anyway if available. I'd be seeking another battery to try, or maybe just buy a new one. If you get 4 hours you're good to go, from my experience laptop batteries die and just need replacing.

My Toshiba Satellite Laptop M105-s3004 Crash and fan not running


Because the fan doesn't work, your laptop is overheating and going into thermal shutdown. have the fan replaced and the area where it is screwed to cleaned as it harbours dust over time preventing adequate cooling.

Running high temps


For the best cleaning you should take the laptop to a service. If you open by yoursefl and cleanit you have a good chance to not mountit 100% good. Do not try to use a compressor to blow air on the laptop because you can break the coolers

Overheating trouble?


It sounds to me that your laptop fan is either clogged with dust or the bearings have jammed. Its most likely going to be necessary to open up the laptop and clean or replace the fan. This will require an experienced technician to avoid risking further damage. I have done it and its tedious at best. No other solution will work.

Fan noise


Is the fan making an unusual noise or just sounding normal but on more then it used to be? If its just on more than it used to be then it will be because the cpu is running hotter than it used to. They are set run at diff speeds depnding on how much cooling is reqd. Is the laptop being used in a warmer place than normal/before?

It may be that the thermal paste between cpu and heatsink isnt performing as well as it used to and needs replacing.
