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.

I´ve a toshiba Satellite a215. How can I get the recovery disks?


As far as many of us know, you has to buy the recovery cd, but, instead of going to all the trouble, since you might has to either call or contact them via e-mil.

Since you already clean the system, why not go to the site and download all the drivers for your specific system, is very simple, and you get to load just the programs you need.

Drivers are a must, here is the direct link, choose download then choose your system > system model>"GO"

the next page would be all of your drivers, you can use your other system or a friend, put then on a flash drive or burn into cd.

Before you do any driver install, you should make sure you are connected to the internet, and do the windows update, as there should be new drivers for your system.

You should also do an "intel INF" update if not provided at the toshiba site, use google and downloaded it, make sure it applies to your system.

After you done the inf update and windows update, now you install all of the drivers and utilities that are available to you at the site.

sorry can't be of more help, below is the link to the site

How do i change the cmos battery a toshiba a215s7422


The cmos battery used on the A215 is the soldered type. It is a small battery soldered in a small bracket on the motherboard. You have to disassemble the laptop down to the bottom case. Once you have removed the palmrest you will see the battery in its holder in the middle of the motherboard. The solder has to be softened to remove the battery and another soldered in its place. Below is a link to the picture of the motherboard with the battery in the moddle of the board.

Hi, my satellite pro laptop is powered up. I can not shut it off.


If the laptop does not shut down if you go to Shut Down, you can try pressing the power button and see if it shuts down, if not, hold the power button down for 5 seconds and it will power off.
