You need to get pressurized air and blow the vents to remove dust particles causing over heat. Or if possible remove keyboard to expose cooling fan and chip and use pressurized air to blow off dust

SOURCE: System warning pop-up

Are you sure that nothing is overheating? If your cpu fan is turning too slow it won't disipate the heat. Do you have a program showing cpu temp:? I would take the access off the bottom and make sure the cpu fan is clean. If that is not the problem I believe you can turn the warnings off in the bios settings

SOURCE: Toshiba Satelite M10 cooling system not working

If you DO NOT hear the fan running, have it looked at by a professional. Your fan may have died. If you can hear the fan running, blow out the fan exhaust port in the opposite direction of normal air flow. Especially on lap tops, the heat sink cooling fins become completely clogged with dust. When this happens the processor overheats causing it to run slow and eventually shuts itself down to keep from going super nova. You should blow it out at least once or twice a year. Also, if you use your laptop on the couch or in bed, place it on a hard surface like a cutting board or something similar that will allow air to flow underneath the computer. This will also help prevent dust from the cushions or blankets and such from clogging the cooling fins on the heat sink faster than usual. Remember blow it out in the opposite direction of normal air flow. You want to blow the dust out the same passage it came in through.

  • You can try a can of liquiod air first and blow out the dust inside the fan and you can also add more cooling thermal paste to the heat sink above the CPU.
  • There is an youtube video that will show you this procedure if you are technical savy.

Warning your cooling system needs service shut down imediatly


That is rather over the top for an overheat problem. Maybe the heat transfer system has leaked and no longer works properly.
Cleaning the exhaust fan usually clears this error.

Warning comes "cooling system face


Hi. Thanks for your question.
  • Well it seems that you have a cooling problem. It could be caused by many things.This warning may be displayed when system reaches dangerous for components temperature. You can do few things to prevent this from happening.
  1. Make sure laptop is always used on flat surface with it's vent holes not being blocked. People often use their laptops in beds or carpets which causes them to overheat.
  2. Make sure that any vent holes are clear of dust and dirt. If needed use small brush to remove dust. For best results brush + compressed air combination should be used.
  3. If all this isn't case you need to make sure that you can hear fan spinning. This could be a hardware failure and running your laptop like this could lead to permanent damage. ( if your fan isn't running please see this video to get an idea of where it is and how can it be replaced)
