The electrical components in a PC generate heat, and fans inside the PC help move the air to keep the components from getting too hot. Excess heat will cause the fans to run constantly, damage components, and limit the speed of the CPU. All of these problems with high power and high heat will cause applications to work slower than normal. One of the main functions of the BIOS is to monitor the temperature and adjust the operating conditions. While the sound of the fan running all the time can be annoying, it may the first clue that your PC is running as efficiently as possible. To help your PC as cool and as efficiently as possible, do one or more of the following corrective actions.

  1. Update the BIOS
  2. Keep air vents clear and clean
  3. Minimize disk operation
  4. Minimize CPU operations
  5. Check whether FAN is enabled in BIOS
Thanks Rajesh

"A problem with the cooling system has been detected."


have you tried blowing out the internals of the notebook with compressed air? if the laptop is not actually overheating it could be a sensor problem. if that's the case you can more than likely disable these warnings in bios. hope this helps!

Sony VAIO Laptop does not shut down with message "Please do not unplug updaing 11 of 55"


that message is from the automatic updates windows makes from time to time ...and this message usually appears after a fresh install with the operation system out of date ..and if you have the automatic updates ticked for to be made automatically ..The thing to be done is either let it install the updates...and it will shut down by itself...or ..start windows..and go to control panel ..and on the automatic updates...stop the updating process..This will cause a message to appear in the tray system every time ..to warn you that your computer is out of date ..and so ...but it has no real distress cause it will run like a charm even without the updates...(probably even faster ..cause if your computer is a little limited in resources the updates will slow it down a little ..
So ..this message is not a pest ..but the windows updating your operation system ..the only issue is when it is in error and takes more than the time it should ...usually it should not take more than a couple of hours for all 55 updates to be installed ...and this in case you have a slow computer...

I have bought a new toshiba A665 a week ago. I have a problem saying. ' A problem in the cooling system has been identified. Switch off ur computer and return it for service.' Cooling fan is working but...


At a week old, get a replacement or fix it right away. Fix should be free, but no computer during service.....

Toshibas run too hot, in my opinion.... so you have to keep after the fans and keep lint cleaned out of it....

Overheating will yield un stable system,

Warning comes "cooling system face


Hi. Thanks for your question.
  • 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.
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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)

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
