Ensure it's fully charged.
plug in AC

if that doesn't work, plug out ac, remove battery.
hold power button on for 30 seconds

put battery back in, then AC

if that doesn't work, either AC adapter is broken and not charging the PC, or else motherboard is dead.

The radiator fan closest to my engine wont work in my 2003 kia rio, i have checked the relay and swapped the fuses over but no luck. What else could the problem be?


Hi Julie, the dual fan cooling system generally works with the larger fan being the radiator cooling fan and the smaller fan being the A/C cooling fan! If you start the vehicle and turn on the A/C and select the coldest setting within a few seconds both fans should start working!

Toshiba Satellite M30 Problem


Power adapters fail because of power spikes. You can do a preliminary test of your system's adapter by plugging it into your notebook and checking to see if the computer indicates that its battery is charging. Usually there's an LED (light-emitting diode) that flashes when the battery is charging. If you can't test the power supply using this method, take your notebook computer to a technician who can test the adapter.

Cooling pad grinding noise


As a temp fix, I've noticed that pressing the plastic circular area under the the bottom of the fan may help to realign the fan's bearings.

Basically push up until you hear the fan stop, then slowly release until you hear the fan starts up again. If it still grinds, repeat the process in a slightly different location of the plastic.

It takes a little work, but until a more permanent fix happens it's good enough.

Screen says the system has detected that a cooling fan is not operating correctly. System fan (90B). The computor is 2days old. by pressing enter the computor operates ok. please advise. thank you


I would take the laptop back to the store I bought it from and ask for an exchange. Changing a fan on a laptop can be a very intense process involving removing the entire motherboard. This could also be a bios setting issue but to seek advice from someone who hasn't touched the laptop for a fan issue is not a good idea. Heat is a laptops worst enemy and the only things fighting that enemy are your fans.

Where i can run cooling fan on hp pavilion dv6 laptop 2011 ? i buy new one but i don't no which button i have to press Please help me


It sounds like your cooling fan has stopped and you bought a new one.
The fans are plugged into the motherboard. Your motherboard probably has at least two fan connectors-they are marked "fan" or "case fan" or something like that. There is no button to turn them on. They come on when you start the system.

Solution 1) Set the system cooling policy to "active"
Windows has two approaches to fan control - "active" or "passive". The default option is passive, but if you switch it to active instead then the fan will turn on more frequently. You can do this by following these steps:
  1. Left click the battery icon in the bottom-right corner of the screen (See image)
  2. Left click More power options (See image)
  3. Click Change plan settings next to the Balanced power settings (See image)
  4. Click Change advanced power settings (See image)
  5. Click the + next to Processor Power Management (See image)
  6. Click the + next to System Cooling Policy (See image)
  7. Change Passive to Active for both Plugged in and On battery (See image)
  8. Do the same for any other modes you use, such as power saving mode
  9. Restart the computer

Solution 2) Keep Toshiba PC Health Monitor open
Some of the comments below sing the praises of PC Health Monitor. Apparently, the laptop fan will work harder when PC Health Monitor is open.
PC Health Monitor is already preinstalled on Toshiba computers. To open the program, just press the Windows key to open the Start menu, start typing "PC Health Monitor", and the program should appear in the search results. Click on it to open it.

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

Fan on laptop intermittent Avent 7110


That can be normal. Normally cpu fans start up only when cpu reach a determined temperature. After it cools down it stops until temperature reaches starting point again.
Generally, when the fan is not working properly, the computer turns itself off after a while because of overheating.
If you have this problem, laptop turning itself off because of overheating (check it is not hibernating etc.), then you usually solve it by replacing the laptop cooling fan.
Generally, 'fan on laptop intermittent' is not a symptom of malfunction.
