The best thing to do is
take something and wedge the blade so it will not turn, and have it blow it out.
if u want to take it apart there are 20 screws to take out.

Hp 6830s is to nois. Fan is tooloude

If the fan making a smooth spin, but the noise is too loud, then it means the fan is trying to dissipate the heat. Probably the air inlet and or the air outlet (also the fan itself) is dirty (or clogged) and you need to clean it up using a canned air.
You may need to open the case/body if the dust become a dust ball (and you need a tweezer and qtip to pickup the dust ball and clean up the fan blades).

Tv repair

I would reccomend replacing the fan or cleaning+lubricating it. You can find a "precision oiler" at a local hardware store. Its like a small plastic tubs with a skinny needle at the end. Its very handy in cases like this. Use that oiler to squirt a little bit of oil into the shaft that turns the fan at the moto ritself. You may have to take the tv apart depending on what model it is. If lubing it and cleaning off all the dust doesen't help you will need to replace the fan.

Fan making noise

There are 2 possibilities: First, your fan, air inlet and air outlet are dirty/dusty. In this case you can use canned air to clean them up. If the dust become a dust ball, then you may have to open the laptop's base or just need a tweezer to lift the dust ball. The second possibility is the fan is dying (broken). In this case, you need to replace the fan, and it is not easy (you need to disassemble your laptop) to replace the fan.

How can I tell if the HD is working if the computer won't boot?

I don't think you can. If you take it to have a geek look at it, the first thing they will do is pull the RAM out, look at it to see if there is anything obviously wrong with it -- then re-seat it and try the machine again. So, you may as well at least do that. The RAM is behind one of the panels on the bottom of the computer. If there is two, pull both and try it with only one of them. This will start you on a process of elimination in case one is bad / one is good. But don't be disheartened yet if there is only one. It can loose adequate contact, and just pulling it and re-seating can fix.

Toshiba builds a good machine. But, they are bad about getting clogged up with dust. If you don't take them apart ever so often and clean the dust out, it can become completely clogged at the out-vent. This of course causes a barely adequate ventilation system to become not adequate. And your machine begins to overheat. And that can damage the motherboard or the processor. So, once a year or so, I take mine apart and clean it out. The last time I did this the out-vent was completely matted over in such a way that the dust appeared to be a filter of some sort. I was confused for a minute (even though I've done it before) and then, "Oh sh$#, there are NO FILTERS!!!" The first time I did this, there was actually a ball of dust that had been rolling around in the fan housing, like a snow ball, getting bigger and bigger. It finally jammed the fan, and that's when I knew there was a problem - because I had become used to hearing the fan (a lot). And that's another thing to mention; If you start noticing that it seems like the fan is real loud, like running real hard all the time...that's because it is. And that's because your computer runs a little program that tells the fan how hot the processor is.

I hope all this helps you. If yes, please take a sec to rate me. Thanks!

My ball stopped scrolling down.. How do i fix it?

You can take it off and try cleaning it, that might help but be careful when you pull it out and put it back in.

Black ball like motor very hot

"Unplug the unit before attempting any servicing" The "Black Ball" is the compressor. If it's excessively hot it is because it is being overworked. There should be a small fan next to it to circulate air past it and the condenser coils beneath the box. Make sure the fan is running, removing any obstruction to the contrary such as a dead mouse or excessive dust. If the fan doesn't run because it doesn't turn free as in lack of lubrication, try a spritz of light oil such as WD-40 on the shaft. While you're there, be sure to clean the dust from the coils under the box. The system (read "Black Ball") and the coils will overheat if they are insulated by excessive dust or if the dust prohibits airflow.

My 2x333 fan is not working properly

well sometimes there are fixable if going to try use a small flat head screw driver and find the plastic clamps and gently pry if you break one don't cry because you probably have to buy a new anyway but its the learning experience you get by having the balls to try. well if you get it open check for dust chunks they do **** up a lot of dust be prepared for serious dust bunnies read the label is it bearingless or ball bearing give the blower blade a good spin does it seem a little wobbley or does it seem to want to stop as soon as you spin it then get a 9v battery and check if it will spin at all if it does put back together and thank GOD you didn't have to shell out that much money for little piece of plastic and a motor and if you do have to buy one pray to GOD you find a cheap one those super blows can get ridious on prices. well have a nice day (compaqsiget over and out have a nice day)

I think it's the cooling... Because when i let it cool down after it shuts down for like a few minutes I can boot it back up. But if i try to boot it up right after it shuts down it won't let me. I think it has a built in temperature monitor to make sure it doesn't overheat. I'm going to install some computer fans on the vents of the projector to get some more airflow. Hopefully that will do the trick.
