If you have a few other accessories plugged in at same time, there may not be enough USB power to run the fan. If this is the case, try unplugging one to identify if this is the cause. Otherwise, there may be a thermostat that will switch it on only when it needs cooling.

I bought this Targus Chillmat 8 months ago and when I plug in the USB, it seems like only half of the fan is working. The chord that attaches to the USB port to plug into the laptop looks broken, but I'm...


A USB has only 2 power wires, the outer ones onpin 1 and pin 4, which is 5 VDC. The two inner pins 2 and 3 carry data only, which can't power a fan.
As part of the cooler is working it is more likely a fan problem.

System fan


Some cpu cooling fan especially on laptop are basically have sensor. There is a certain temperature in order to make the cooling fan activate, when if it's cool then the cooling fan turn off automatically. Same with the air condition thermostat. Good day.....

Other way is to buy a usb cooling pad that fit the size of your laptop. If keeps cool your laptop though and i tried that already and it's effective to cool down the temperature.

When I connect My Samsung VP-D77i Camcorder to my Laptop I always get a message saying "cant open camera device". My Laptop does not have a fire wire port but only with USB ports. It has Windows 7 Pre


First, try attaching the camcorder via usb cable with the camera OFF, then turning it on. This may trigger Windows to activate the driver scanner and activate the driver. If you've been attaching with camcorder off, try attaching with it on, to see if that activates driver installation.

If that doesn't work, you may have a low-power usb plug; often the usb ports in the back of the computer put out more juice than the handy ones on the front. You may also need a shorter and more robust usb cable; I've found with various cameras and phones that certain usb cables work fine for recharging but won't necessarily provide adequate data transfer.

TOSHIBA satellite L645 fan is not working , i install new fan still the fan not working, the fan jack on matherboaerd looks good any one have idea???? thank you


Wow, that's a bummer. Did you install the correct fan? Maybe the laptop has to run a while before the fan kicks in.

You can always buy a fan cooling pad that plugs into the usb port and the laptop sits on top of it for less than $25

My daughters Toshiba satellite l505d will not boot up correctly. It starts but then nothing happens. What do I need to do. Have already taken battery out and restarted. Any help would be helpful.


Try the following.
1. Remove battery and plug in the AC Adapter and check if it works
If yes - Battery is defective
If no - Motherboard Problem/AC adapter

2. Check the AC adapter LED indicator if its lighted or not(double check by a multitester)
If lighted - it works properly
if not - replace
3. Try to reinstall WINDOWS operating system by the use of the installer CD
4. Reformat your computer and install necessary drivers and applications

Thanks. Cheers!

If you want repair this it costs high. I suggest you to buy a "usb optical mouse". Just plug it in to you usb port on your laptop.
I think it better. Contact me again for any suggestion.

IPAQ H5555 connection problems


Hi, This could be due to a few issues, try these soloutions in order below: 1) If you have a jacket connected to the ipaq it could be preventing the ipaq from locating correctly on the connector. Remove jacket and try insering again. 2) Check that active sync is set up to detect the device on the usb port. The cradle for the ipaq may have a serial and usb connector. Ensure that just the usb connector is attached to your laptop. Try connecting again. 3) You may need to uninstall the USB cradle if it was connected before installing active sync. Try the following steps if this was the case: a) unplug the USB cradle b) uninstall active sync c)Click start then click control pannel then click system. Then click on the hardware tab. Look for the device under USB, right click on the device and then select uninstall. d) restart the laptop e) Install active sync f) ONLY after active sync has installed you can now plug the cradle back into the usb socket. g) Now connect the ipaq, it should now detect it.
