Re: cpu fan

There are no drivers for fans. You have 2 possiblily's, the more likely of hte 2 is the fan is shot and needs to be replaced. The other possibilty is the connecter that the fan plugs into went bad and is not suppling power to teh fan. Start by replacing the fan, it is something you can do on your own if you have some tech ability. And yes the computer running slow can be related to the computer overheating. Hope this helps. L8R

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,

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.

If you need guidance in downloading, or installing please post in a Comment.

My toshiba satelite A45-S250 doesnt start the windows, it keeps rebooting and I am not being able to install it again, my dvd drive isnt working

Unplug the power cord, take out the battery and hold the power button down for 10-15 seconds. This should take your computer out of the reboot loop that it is stuck in. If it doesn't, try using an external CD drive from Wal-Mart or Radio Shack, your computer should register it and you can load the windows CD from there.

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.

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.

4 Beeps means there is a fault with the CPU.

It could be that the fan is faulty and needs replacing, or it coul be that the CPU is dead.

Unless you are technically mined enough to take the machine apart yourself, then your only course of action is to take it to a dealer for repair.

The laptop doesnt start up. cooling fan is brocken. thermal oil is old and almost dry and little

Sometimes depending on the version of BIOS there is a thermal shut down feature,If the CPU gets to hot it will shut the entire system down.What you can do is replace the CPU fan and apply more grease in between the heat sink and the CPU chip.If this does not solve your problem then you may have damaged the CPU.the best way to fix this is to replace the motherboard and CPU.Try replacing the fan first because if your computer has the thermal shut down feature then chances are that it protected the motherboard and CPU from any damage.Try the simple things first! GOOD LUCK.
