Toshiba Satellite A45-S250 cooling fan not working

The fan had strange noise for some time and now it is quiet. But at the same time, a message pops up saying that the computer is hot and I need to take it to an expert, then it shuts out. Can I change the fan at home?

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

Driver toshiba satellite a45-s250 wireless network connector


Toshiba Support > Satellite A45-S250 Notebook PC > Atheros 802.11 a/b/g WiFi driver with Cisco WPA support for Windows XP and 2000,

http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=SB&os=&category=&moid=555703&rpn=PSA40U&modelFilter=A45-S250&selCategory=2756709&selFamily=1073768663

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.

HOW TO GET TO THE RAM IN A45-S250


You will find the memory on the Toshiba A45-S250 under the keyboard. Snap of the grill that also has the on/off button on it, just above the keyboard. You will find two screws holding down the keyboard and another screw near the middle holding down a small silver piece that is holding down the center part of the keyboard. Lift the keyboard from the screen end toward you. Memory is located under a clear plastic flap.The power should be off and the battery removed during this operation. Be sure to touch some metal piece to ground yourself also. Good luck.

The cooling fan is not working


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.
