    The fan doesn't work. It needs replacing. The cracking sound can be a voltage arc leading to the fan, or another part overheating due to lack of cooling. Overheat is a killer of computer parts.

The fan is clogged an needs to be cleaned if you know how to open the laptop you can move the strip that houses the keyboard ans remove the key board from there you can see the fan that is on the CPU stick a tooth pic in the fan soo that it does not move and blow it clean with compressed air. if not take it to you local computer guy and he can clean it for you.

Examine the fan opening for any foreign objects, there could be something small stuck inside blocking the fan. If there's nothing obvious, then it could be either a worn out bearing or a cracked case - either way, it'll need to be replaced. Try www.impactcomputers.com - they have a wealth of Toshiba parts, you can probably get a new fan assembly for around $50.

Please help. I installed Windows 7, before was Windows Vista. And now I have problems with sound, it is terrible. Can you advise sound driver? Laptop- Toshiba Satellite A215-S4747


Since you upgraded, it's possible you are still using the Vista sound drivers. I would suggest you visit the Toshiba website and look for the support menu item for your particular computer. Then find the sound drivers for Win 7.

Normally when this happens, what one should look out for is the possibility of it happening again. Like desktops peripherals such as disc drives would have connections internally. If you can have them checked out if there were loose connections. It could also be faulty internals that will break down soon such as ICs in the drive.

you should see the post screen if the monitor is working. try hte fn and the monitor or display key. some laptops toggle the display this way. another possibility is the lid switch that shuts off the display when you close the lid. and it could be heat damage.

Yaseen-

Sorry to hear about your problem but I urge you- DO NOT continue to use this laptop knowing the fan is not working. While it may not be ideal, you can purchase a new fan and install it yourself fairly easily for under $100 (or have someone at a local computer shop do so) but please understand that the reason it keeps shutting down is a security measure to prevent vital damage to the really expensive hardware components.

Here is a link to a power supply for your laptop if you choose to replace is yourself:
