    Exactly it will not boot at all. I did tried to start it without the battery and memory. NOTHING. Some guys said to hold the power button for 30 secs and press Enter and f1 f2 f3 f4 and etc etc...NOTHING. BUt i dont get it. An hour ago it was working. the only problem was that it was turning off all the time because of the cooling fan. It happend before and i had to replace the fan. It worked for 6 months. Today i did the same thing. Replaced the fan and put all the parts back together....and nothing

Can you hook the laptop up to an external monitor to see if you get video...otherwise we'll have to try some other stuff that requires a bit more time.

    No boot, ok, well then it's more than likely a problem with the motherboard. I would try booting with no battery, hard drive, and only 1 stick of memory. Let me know what happens, if anything.

    Yeah sounds like the motherboard overheated just one too many times. You can try locating the cmos battery and removing all power (battery, charger) while leaving the battery out for at least 5 minutes.

    If that doesn't work, then your ship is sunk :(

Toshiba satellite a215-s7422 fan not running can i replace fan? how?

Replacing your fan will void your warranty.

I would advise talking to toshiba for a replacement.

If still you want to replace ir, you have to disassemble the whole laptop to replace the fan, all you have to do once disassembled is unplug the original one and plug the replacement one, but you have to use only compatible ones, or else you will burn your cpu or the fan wont fit.

For a quick resolution, buy a powerfol laptop cooler.

It sounds like the motherboard is bad. There is no power being sent to the fan and that means that somewhere in the the mother board is not sending the info.

My toshiba satellite a215-s7422 is overheating i think. it's been shutting off suddenly with no warning and the fan doesn't seem to be blowing like usual...

turn it off turn it over and clean the fan on the bottom. I use a Satellite a25. I have used air to blow out the cooling coils a nunber of times. Toshiba has picuten in the owners manual on how to remove the fan for cleaning. it picks up dust from the work area and does not blow it clear. this cause it to over heat most likely
