Question about Toshiba Satellite M35X-S349 Notebook
My fan is continuously running. I shut it down an dthen start it up and it does not stop running. I have opened it up and cleaned it but still SAME ANNOYING PROBLEM!!! Please Help Thank you Joe
Your fan is running to keep your system (mainly your processor) from overheating. Heat is the biggest enemy of laptops, and most aren't designed to put on your lap (as air intake ports are usually on the bottom and blocking them with your pants, comforter, blanket, etc... will not allow air to circulate causing heat sensing hardware/software to kick the fan into high speed) as that name would suggest. I believe that Notebook computer is the more proper term for most of them, though some are designed with no air intakes on the bottom side, unfortunately yours does. When you opened it up and "cleaned it" did you clean the heat sync and the other components or just the fan? If your PC is in a smoking environment it will have tar build up holding the dust and need a more thorough cleaning than just blowing it out with canned air from the outside (you may want to disassemble it and clean it with a non residual, non petroleum based contact cleaner. Otherwise there are plenty of temperature monitoring softwares out that will tell you what the processor and harddrive temperature are and most have free trials that you may want to try to see if heat is your problem. There is also software available to monitor and even increase/decrease your fan speed.
