HI baring 16 listen You can get do a hard reset on the Samsung tablet. I must warn you that if you do a hard reset on the tablet you will lose all of your data. Next if your hearing a fan sound in the tablet. The tablet it self may be struggling to do simple operations on it. Where did you buy the tablet from. The steps to doing a hard reset on the tablet are as follow. 1 You need to hold both the power button and menu home key buttons at the same time. You will see the reboot screen come up. DO a wipe user information on it. It will begin wiping the tablet. You will have to reset set up the tablet after it is finish.If you still hear the fan sound take it back to the place of purchase for an exchange. Hope this helps

I have a Samsung Tab A6 that keeps making a loud screeching noise And boots itself it was freezing the screen but when I factory reset it that seem to stop now it's just making the loud screeching noise...

Where did you get the phone from.?
I suggest you take it back to them & get your money back as a screeching sound is usually a network-lockout noise from a stolen phone.?
Best of luck.

I have a Toshiba Portege M400. It runs ok if I leave it on a flat surface. However, if I try to move it the screen freezes up and the fan starts running very loudly. I am unable to do anything except cut...

Sounds like there might be dust inside of the laptop that is blocking one of the air vents. Plus the connectors to the screen may need to be reseated so that way the screen can be moved freely without it locking up on you and cutting off.
You have two issues going on. Bring it to somebody so they can open it up and make sure the air vents are cleaned out. Also they need to make sure the CPU fan is running properly. Then with the screen the connectors need to be reseated. Its also quite possible the screen connector might need to be replaced.
If the laptop is under warranty see if Toshiba will reapir it.

Ok so is it normal for the fan in the T4220 to make a lot of noise while your using it. It sounds like its working over time. :) Is there anything to help this, or will I need to get a new fan??

When a fan appears to be working laboriously it is almost never a problem with the fan itself. The motherboard has a sensor which tells it that the temperature is too hot and commands the fan to run to remove the heat by pushing the hot air out of the laptop.

Look at the vent where your fan pushes out the heat on the side or bottom of the laptop. You will see a row of slender blades. These blades are attached to a copper bar which runs to a copper alloy metalplate on top of the processor. The fan blows on these blades to disperse the heat out of the laptop by drawing it away from the processor.

If dust collects in the blades, it blocks the air flow created by the fan, the laptop interior heats up and the sensor tells the fan to run harder.

1. Find a friend with an air compressor and spray nozzel and blow out your laptop at NO MORE THAN 40psi.

2. If the fan draws air in from the bottom of the laptop, DO NOT EVER rest the laptop on bed covers or anything that blocks the in vent.

3. Go on the internet to the Fujitsu laptop support site and locate your laptops "Drivers and Downloads" site. Download and install the latest BIOS which may compensate for changes made to the operating system through updates.

I can go much further into other solutions but they involve advanced disassembly operations. The suggestions above will usually solve most problems with fans running too often.

Best Regards and Good Luck

Hold the power button in for a few seconds, until it powers off. When it reboots, change your power settings. Don't shut the monitor off after any time span, it isn't necessary.
