    Sorry - I didn't clarify - This is a Targus PS248U1 that is supposed to run off a USB port. I got it secondhand so don't have any original paperwork.

I done believe in using those but, you need to check it on another usb port to be sure that it is not the fan in the pad that is bad.

What are the other ports used for, and can I use them to run the fans?


Do you mean the USB-ports on your laptop? If so, than yes, you will need one free USB-port to connect the Chill Mat to.

One of the biggest enemies of pcs/macs and laptops are heat.

Power cable problems, also


open it up and splice the current power cable and connect it permanently to the USB connector. The problem is the power plug gets loosened after some time and can't make a proper connection.

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.
