Have a Toshiba A15 laptop. Fans and cooling system working. Not overheating but System Warning kepps poping up. Warning a problem with the cooling system has been detected. How can I turn off this pop up.
I bought a A665 in 2010 and had problem with the windows 7 crashing, after two crashes the fans warning started and it began to overheat. Since Toshiba has no support is in Brazil, I took it to the local computer repair tech it worked about a year and the same problem started again . Now the health monitor shows no problem but the "cooling system warning" pops up on start-up. It also began freezing up too. If you turn off the all the eco-junk and power saving, turn off sleep modes set everything to " never" it quit freezing up ( for now anyway). I am really sick of it. I would sell it but I am too considerate. Tie a rock to it and throw it in the Ocean. It is a piece of junk.

Re: System warning pop-up
Are you sure that nothing is overheating? If your cpu fan is turning too slow it won't disipate the heat. Do you have a program showing cpu temp:? I would take the access off the bottom and make sure the cpu fan is clean. If that is not the problem I believe you can turn the warnings off in the bios settings

Well it seems that you have a cooling problem. It could be caused by many things.This warning may be displayed when system reaches dangerous for components temperature. You can do few things to prevent this from happening.
Make sure laptop is always used on flat surface with it's vent holes not being blocked. People often use their laptops in beds or carpets which causes them to overheat.
Make sure that any vent holes are clear of dust and dirt. If needed use small brush to remove dust. For best results brush + compressed air combination should be used.
If all this isn't case you need to make sure that you can hear fan spinning. This could be a hardware failure and running your laptop like this could lead to permanent damage. ( if your fan isn't running please see this video to get an idea of where it is and how can it be replaced)

you probably need to clean the cooling fan...it collects dust over time, and doesn't move the warm air out as it should...its fairly accessible by removing the bottom case cover...please rate my response.....
You can't replace the fan, you have to replace the power supply. In order to find out whih one you need the best thing to do is open your PC and find out the Wattage. It will be marked on the outside of your power supply. Just in case you do not know where the power supply is, if yo see where the vents are on your computer the power supply is there. It has a fan to blow the hot air out of it..

If you DO NOT hear the fan running, have it looked at by a professional. Your fan may have died. If you can hear the fan running, blow out the fan exhaust port in the opposite direction of normal air flow. Especially on lap tops, the heat sink cooling fins become completely clogged with dust. When this happens the processor overheats causing it to run slow and eventually shuts itself down to keep from going super nova. You should blow it out at least once or twice a year. Also, if you use your laptop on the couch or in bed, place it on a hard surface like a cutting board or something similar that will allow air to flow underneath the computer. This will also help prevent dust from the cushions or blankets and such from clogging the cooling fins on the heat sink faster than usual. Remember blow it out in the opposite direction of normal air flow. You want to blow the dust out the same passage it came in through.
If u have a laptop (that's what i found out that toshiba Qosmio is ) then is no problem that the fans stop (as long as the temp. is within the normal working margins ). U might have a setting problem - a bad software, managing the cooling system; - a bad BIOS setting regarding system temperature protection; - or the temperature detectors malfunctions, and must be changed (if possible)
