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.
Good Luck.

Need to replace toshiba satellite m35x-s163 fan


Unless you are really comfortable with opening laptops to upgrade parts, I won't recommend doing this. Rather get a notebook cooler. It does the job of cooling the notebook pretty well.

Laptop fan


Hi. The common problem with these is dust build up in the heatsink fins, but I would have thought the fans would be runnnig hard. try cleaning the dust out by putting a vaccuum cleaner against the grills and around the fan intakes. apart from that, they can have fan failure when trying to run at idle speeds (they may still work at boot) - especially if the fan(s) were running with a slight rattle previously.

Sounds like your motherboard just died. This is a known issue with Toshiba. They extended the warranty until Nov 7th of 2007, but now it is out of warranty. :-\ You could try phoning Toshiba (good luck getting someone who speaks English) and see if they have any other solutions. Repair is in the neighbourhood of $500 or less, so it seems.
