Re: cooling fan stop working

It's normal for the fan to stop and start, as needed. However, it sounds as if the heat sink attached to the processor and fan may be clogged with dust/fuzz/hair, etc. If you can, vacuum or blow air back through the ventilation ports to clear the debris.
This usually causes the fan to run constantly. It's possible that you need to adjust the power management settings in control panel-toshiba power management.
Also,try keeping the laptop in a cool place and see if it makes a difference.
Let me know how it works.
Good luck

Laptop stops wafter some working heating

I THINK you mean, Laptop stops working after heating up... If that is so, that means your Cooling system is not functioning, and the computer has turned itself off to protect your MOTHERBOARD, CPU, RAM and HDD from heat damage. Which means, you can likely get your cooling fan replaced in a shop for about 100 bucks (outside of warranty) and have your pc back the way it was when you got it new.

The cooling fan is not working

THe shutting down is your laptop's thermal protection. It is trying to keep the CPU from being destroyed.  You should stop using it until you fix it, or you will destroy it.
The fans are not hard to replace and toshiba disassembly is fairly straight forward. Just get your #1 and #2 phillips head screw drivers and pay attention to how you take it apart.
Call Toshiba and order replacement fans for your laptop as they will not set you back very much.

Fan stopped

If the fan has stopped, then the processor will overheat. Most vendors have protection so that a non-working fan is detected and the unit will not power up with detecting its rotation. Seems like a repair shop job I'm afraid.

Cannot boot. Power indicators lights up, fan swirls, but no activity

Call Toshiba immediately. Ask to ship the computer to the depot including the AC adapter, to determine if problem lies on the AC of th DC in jack. M35X has an extended warranty until 11-7-2007.
