Fans do not STOP !

They may switch speed in relation to the temperature but don't STOP !

It may be that your fan is clogged up as happens a lot with newer laptops.

There are a couple of approaches

Only do this if you feel competent in doing so.

Pulling apart laptops is not for the faint of heart.

If you really must do it there are some
good guides here
.

Do this outside with glasses on.

An alternative is to get a can of compressed air used to clean computers. Put the nozzle on and spray it in every hole you can see without putting the nozzle itself inside the laptop.
Do this outside with glasses on.

It is preferable to have the battery and ROM drive removed but many get away without doing that.

Take a
peek here for more ideas of what is involved.

There are a few are tips for various things in there.

DON'T touch the CPU cooler unless you know what you are doing and have some thermal grease for CPUs to hand.


Additionally it is preferable to use a newer laptop with a cooling pad (3 fan preferred and with its own power supply when possible)

Don't sit laptops on cushions carpets or other soft items. they **** up minute fibres and particles which clog up the cooling.

If you continue to use it you may find it gets slower toactually use or worse it could cause motherboard and CPU damage.

If you are unsure a good laptop repair shop will do this at a reasonable price.

Laptops are equipped with automatic fans switched on/off by a heat sensor, which turn on due to increase in temperature of processor. If u r working in a cold environment like in an airconditioned room, it might never turn on. Its ok if u r not facing any problem. If so, then tell me again. Hope this will be helpful

I have toshiba equium a100-338 and the power button will not work


The cable (Wire) stays attached to the Power Button Board,

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2270-POWER-SWITCH-BUTTON-TOSHIBA-EQUIUM-A100-/221111621689?pt=UK_Computing_Other_Computing_Networking&hash=item337b479839

No, I'm wrong? The Flat Flex Cable (FFC) does come out of a ZIF connector on the Power Button Board?
You may wind up buying the Power Button Board, and Flat Flex Cable, then.

Or you may find a 'Mom and Pop' computer store, that can repair the cable.

The best option is get a restore disc from Toshiba, I've done this a few times and it is a very easy process. Once you have the disc just boot the laptop with disc inserted and away you go!!.

My Equium A200-1V0 fan stopped working


Hi, just thought I'd let you know that when I got my Toshiba Equium 200-1V0 it was supplied with the User's Manual A210 Series. The manual is just basic and does not go into full depth of how to clean out heat sink etc. The problem you described regarding the shutting down is most probably that the heat sink is clogged up with dust and needs to be cleaned. Toshiba has a lot of laptops (different models) with this problem. I had the same problem with Toshiba A200-1V0 and have now got the same problem with the Toshiba A300D-20R which is only 6 months old! On the A200-1V0 I managed to hoover the bottom of the laptop where the fan is and it worked fine, but with the A300D-20R it has not worked, but fortunately it's still under guarantee so I will be sending it back to Toshiba to do it. Here is a link to download the Manuals. You will find the Manual for A200-1V0. Hope this helps. http://uk.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_manuals.jsp?service=UK
