Re: toshiba cooling system

If u have a laptop (that's what i found out that toshiba Qosmio is ) then is no problem that the fans stop (as long as the temp. is within the normal working margins ). U might have a setting problem - a bad software, managing the cooling system; - a bad BIOS setting regarding system temperature protection; - or the temperature detectors malfunctions, and must be changed (if possible)

dude- all the wholes in your pc closed off??? if so then your fan what is it barring or magnetic? if it is baring then you will need to replace... my guess it is.. if it were magnetic it would just stop PERIOD...the fan isn\'t spinning enough ( high enough rpm\'s) to keep a constant flow at the rate in which the CPU needs or heat sink should have a diags in or with in your those it\'ll tell you what it is at or what it should be at... you can make decision then.... if your fan isn\'t running then just replace fan. If fan is running and your diags isn\'t loaded or doesnt have the utility will need to swapp the fan from a good working PC or buy a new one.. if you STILL have issue thn your problem lays with in the power supply... it is either your MAIN power supply or it is your motherboard (12v) then you will need another mother board. hope this helps!!!!

P.S. is your fan clean heat sink clean?????

Message keeps popping up saying Turn off computer, problem in cooling system

you need to get pressurized air and blow the vents to remove dust particles causing over heat. Or if possible remove keyboard to expose cooling fan and chip and use pressurized air to blow off dust

I have bought a new toshiba A665 a week ago. I have a problem saying. ' A problem in the cooling system has been identified. Switch off ur computer and return it for service.' Cooling fan is working but...

At a week old, get a replacement or fix it right away. Fix should be free, but no computer during service.....

Toshibas run too hot, in my opinion.... so you have to keep after the fans and keep lint cleaned out of it....

Overheating will yield un stable system,

Toshiba Satelite M10 cooling system not working

If you DO NOT hear the fan running, have it looked at by a professional. Your fan may have died. If you can hear the fan running, blow out the fan exhaust port in the opposite direction of normal air flow. Especially on lap tops, the heat sink cooling fins become completely clogged with dust. When this happens the processor overheats causing it to run slow and eventually shuts itself down to keep from going super nova. You should blow it out at least once or twice a year. Also, if you use your laptop on the couch or in bed, place it on a hard surface like a cutting board or something similar that will allow air to flow underneath the computer. This will also help prevent dust from the cushions or blankets and such from clogging the cooling fins on the heat sink faster than usual. Remember blow it out in the opposite direction of normal air flow. You want to blow the dust out the same passage it came in through.

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 Keeps Coming On

A lot of recent Toshiba and Vaio computers have had some issues with intermittent fan control issues. Updating the BIOS from the manufacturer's website should solve this problem.
