Question about Toshiba Satellite A45-S250 Notebook

1 Answer

The cooling fan is not working

My Toshiba Satellite A45-S250 had abnormal noise from the fan for some time. Then the noise stopped by itself and since then the fan is not working and the computer turns off itself after a few minutes of operation. Before turning off, a message saying that the computer is not cooling pops up. Can I change the the fan at home? I have never done any computer repair before, but I am good with fixing simple electrical instruments.

THe shutting down is your laptop's thermal protection. It is trying to keep the CPU from being destroyed.  You should stop using it until you fix it, or you will destroy it.
The fans are not hard to replace and toshiba disassembly is fairly straight forward. Just get your #1 and #2 phillips head screw drivers and pay attention to how you take it apart.
Call Toshiba and order replacement fans for your laptop as they will not set you back very much.

HOWEVER, it requires the Atheros Client Utility v2.4.2.18, to be installed. If it isn't installed on the laptop, this utility needs to be installed first. Then the Driver above.

Toshiba Satellite A45-S250 cooling fan not working


I would suggest you take the laptop apart and inspect the fan, if its covered in dust, it might be unable to rotate.

yes this is a fairly easy repair and can be done at home. You will need to find a replacement fan for it though, look at the numbers from the old fan.


Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,
Ekse
