Toshiba Satellite Fan Control

Toshiba A215-S5837. Fan keeps coming on constantly. Just about every 10-15 seconds then shuts off after about 5 sec. The CPU is only running at about 10% and 43c. Is there a way to control this fan?

Try unplugging your CPU and wiping any accumulated gunk which may have oxidized there, causing heat buildup. You have, of course, cleaned all the accumulated dust off your fan blades?

    That's the address of your manual. One reason your fan keeps coming on is that you are using it on your lap or on a carpet, blocking the air intakes, which can lead to overheating and damage. In case you didn't know. If that isn't your problem, I suggest asking Toshiba support.

My toshiba laptop model a215-s5837 shuts off randomly. please help


I also have a Toshiba that started doing this. The problem was overheating. Try getting some of the canned compressed air and blowing out the fan and also the vents all the way around the computer. Also make sure the fan intake is unrestricted. I bought an aftermarket stand that has a built in fan that plugs into the USB.. My computer has not shut off once since then. Good Luck.

Toshiba Laptop Cooling Fan


First thing i would do is update your BIOS in your laptop.

According to the information you supplied, the latest bios is located Here if you are on a 32 bit operating system, or Here if you are on a 64 bit operating system

BIOS updates are particularly good for laptops as they regularly make changes to power consumption, fan speeds etc

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.
