There is no way to "boost" the fans. I'm assuming the fan runs.
Buy a laptop cooler from a local store. They come with USB fans that will assist with cooling. Also, never use a laptop on anything but a hard surface, never on a blanket or on your lap.

Hi there is a toolbar coming up the whole time saying,,,,,WARNING a problem with the cooling system has been detected, please turn of the computer and return for service immediately


Try to fix the problem without taking the laptop apart first but I would recommend using a powerful air compressor instead of a vacuum cleaner.

Welcome to FixYa! Based on the error you have received, this means that the cooling fan of your laptop needs to be cleaned and checked at. This is a common problem with any toshiba laptop. I suggest checking the heatsink of your laptop. If the CPU heatsink is not clogged with dust and lint completely, you can use canned air and just blow it inside the laptop through the openings on the bottom and on the sides. It's nice as a precaution measure, but it might not work if your laptop already has a problem and the heatsink is completely clogged.

  1. Open the laptop case, so you can access the CPU fan and the heatsink. In some cases you can access the heatsink through the latch on the bottom of the laptop. Sometimes (for example Toshiba Satellite A70/A75) you have to open the laptop case all the way down.
  2. Carefully disconnect the fan cables on the system board and remove the fan. If the fan makes unusual sound when it spins (grinding sound), I would recommend to replace the fan.
  3. Clean the fan and the heatsink with compressed air.
  4. I would also recommend removing old thermal grease from the CPU and applying new grease for better heat conductivity.
  5. If your laptop is still under warranty, you can take it to any Toshiba Authorize Service Provider and fix the problem at no charge to you.
Hope this helps! Thank you for using FixYa!

We have an older Toshiba Sattelite A70 laptop which is extremly noisy. It also switches off a while if lying down on a flat surface, which means it appears to be overheating. Is this a common problem with...


The noise is most likely an extemely dirty cooling fan. To find out for sure that it's your fan and not your hard drive, take your hard drive out and then turn your computer on. If the noise is still there it's most likely your cooling fan, if not then it's your hard drive. If you don't know how to take your hard drive out or open your computer up to clean it you'll need to take it to someone who can.
Next, you can get a laptop cooler from most office or computer supply stores or any of the online computer parts sites. They range in price from around $10 to over $50. I recommend looking at the descriptions and online ratings, then picking one that best fits your needs rather than going on price alone.

Toshiba Satellite a70-s256 fan issues


Instead, turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Remove the battery.
Purchase a can of compressed-air.
Give your computer a "blow-job", to remove all the dust that has accumulated inside your computer.
The dust has been acting as "insulation", forcing the fans to run faster, and with more noise.

Cooler computer -> quieter computer.

How do I replace the keyboard?


next to the F1 key and the windows key (2nd upper key and second to last key) are two screws, usually under some covering. unscrew and lift top edge of the keyboard towards the trackpad to lay face down. Undo the wire ribbon by lifting the grey or brown tabs and remove ribbon and keyboard. Then install the new keyboard by inserting the ribbon on the place. Lock down with the tabs and put the plastic prongs (close to the space bar) into the laptop body first, and then close keyboard onto the final position. screw back in and thats all. nboulikas@gmail.com for any additional questions.

Becarefull,
Seems like your laptop is overheating, and it shutsdown as a way to protect the processor.
With a vaccum, **** the dirt that might be trapped in the fan or fans.
This should help.
If not, then you need to open laptop and perform a deep cleaning on the Heatsink, and apply fresh heat release compound on the processor.
