Hi,
Contact Toshiba, they will tell you where in Australia you can get the fan replaced, and if it is covered by the varenty.

Hi there is a toolbar coming up the whole time saying,,,,,WARNING a problem with the cooling system has been detected, please turn of the computer and return for service immediately


Try to fix the problem without taking the laptop apart first but I would recommend using a powerful air compressor instead of a vacuum cleaner.

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.

  1. Open the laptop case, so you can access the CPU fan and the heatsink. In some cases you can access the heatsink through the latch on the bottom of the laptop. Sometimes (for example Toshiba Satellite A70/A75) you have to open the laptop case all the way down.
  2. Carefully disconnect the fan cables on the system board and remove the fan. If the fan makes unusual sound when it spins (grinding sound), I would recommend to replace the fan.
  3. Clean the fan and the heatsink with compressed air.
  4. I would also recommend removing old thermal grease from the CPU and applying new grease for better heat conductivity.
  5. If your laptop is still under warranty, you can take it to any Toshiba Authorize Service Provider and fix the problem at no charge to you.
Hope this helps! Thank you for using FixYa!

My fan in laptop is completely stop working.how i suppose to fix it?


YOu didn't post the model number but you can order a new fan from the Toshiba website or possibly find one on Ebay and open the computer up and replace the non working fan. If you try running the laptop with out that fan it will over heat and you will burn your CPU out.

My fan has stopped working like it doesn't spin when i turn it on. what do i do?


This seems to be a common problem with laptops over a couple of years old. Dust gets trapped in the copper fins and the fan of the CPU heatsink and reduces the efficiency of the cooling, which results in regular power off's by the laptop as it gets over it's upper temperature setting. The fix is relatively easy, just remove the heatsink unit, blow it clean with compressed air, clean the old CPU heatsink paste off with isopropyl alcohol (IPA) and spray a thin film of heatsink paste on the CPU.


If this does not fix it, you need to replace the fan.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

Engine cooling fan isn't working, fan is only 3 mths old.


This could be from a number of things. Depending on what year of your car and your make and model it could be as simple as a bad or shorted wire, or it could be the sensor that has failed.

I sent my laptop to Toshiba and they said they removed the 3rd party memory I installed (although I tried this prior to shipping). I didn't reinstall the memory and now it works fine.

Toshiba Satellite A45-S250 cooling fan not working


I would suggest you take the laptop apart and inspect the fan, if its covered in dust, it might be unable to rotate.

yes this is a fairly easy repair and can be done at home. You will need to find a replacement fan for it though, look at the numbers from the old fan.


Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,
Ekse
