Question about Toshiba Satellite A15-S127 Notebook
I have the same laptop. This is a common problem. The first time I bought a new fan on eBay for about $70. They are expensive because the problem is so common with this laptop. It happened AGAIN. So, I was not going to pay for another. This is what I did:
Get a small phillips screwdriver. Unscrew the screws on the back where the fan is and pop off the plastic part. Unscrew the fan and take it out. Take it apart and a put a SMALL bit of oil(I used filter oil for my RC car) on the little pin that the fan spins on. Blow out the copper heatsink with can-of-air because it is also probably full of dust. Mine made so much noise and stopped working but after I oiled it, it was like brand new.
Don't think it's hard to take apart. It's pretty straightforward when you start unscrewing. The plastic piece you begin taking off is the one under the left speaker with the two circle bumps on it.
