Question about Computers & Internet
Just purchased a Toshiba Laptop Satellite A215-S5837. The cooling fan keeps turning off and on every 5 seconds. I tried putting something under the corners to keep it off the table to see if that would help and it didn't. Is this normal or do I need to return it?? Any detailed info you could give me would be greatly appreciated.
First thing i would do is update your BIOS in your laptop.
According to the information you supplied, the latest bios is located Here if you are on a 32 bit operating system, or Here if you are on a 64 bit operating system
BIOS updates are particularly good for laptops as they regularly make changes to power consumption, fan speeds etc
