Question about Computer System Cooling
This is common with laptops if you use programs that use power. The notebook gets hot when the processor and hard drive are working hard. You are doing the right thing with the fan. They make coolers that go underneath the laptop that have fans for this reason. Check out this link.The link will explain everything. Never use your laptop on a flat surface. If you can find a cooler that is curved you are better off. Walmart has a good one. Also take everything apart that you can and blow it OUT. (Use a vacuum with a plastic hose if possible.)
Please rate this as a Fixya since I explained everything. This will keep my name near the top of the page. Thanks and enjoy your laptop.

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.
