Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527 Notebook
I just bought my laptap yesterday and the cooling fan keeps going on and off every 5 seconds... it is driving me nuts! I tried to call Toshiba support... after holding for 1/2 hour I got some idiot from overseas who barely spoke english and he tells me I have to drop it off at a sevice center??? I about went through the roof... should have stuck with Dell!!! Anyway... is there anything I can do to fix this or should I just take it back and dump this thing?
I'm frustrated! When you pay a lot of money for something it should work!
Take a Look in your Control Panel, Go To Your POWER Settings..(click on the POWER icon).. Look there to see if you can change the settings to : Toshiba Power Saver, then set it to that, save and close, then Back in your Control Panel There should Be a Power Saver Icon.. Click on it and Set it to Long Life.. And Slide the slider from the CPU Cooling icon to Maximum Performance..
If you Do Not have these Settings in your Control Panel, then You can Simply Adjust the Power Settings To "Portable Laptop"
and tweak the settings to your liking.. Like "turn Hard drive off after 20 minutes.. etc..
