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.

SOURCE: I got a Targus PA248U
I opened the case and hard wired the power cord directly to the wires of the fans. There are 4 philips-head screws at the four top corners under the rubber adhesive pads. Separate the top from the bottom. Two wires come from each of the fans. Cut and twist the two positive wires together and the two negative wires together. Cut the end off the power cord that is NOT the USB end and strip the wire insulation back. You will find a white insulated wire surrounded by another wire. Twist the ends of each separately making sure they are separated by the white insulation. Remove the circuit board using the tiny screws where the switch is and put the power cord end through the switch hole. Tie a knot in the cord to prevent cord from pulling out. Make sure the USB end can reach a USB port on your computer. Carefully test which wires to twist together by touching each to see if the fans turn. One way will work and other way won't. When sure of correct wires, you can solder them together and insulate properly with small wire nuts or electrical tape. Reassemble case with screws and plug in USB cord end when you want the fans to cool your notebook computer. I hope that this helps.
