Taking apart a laptop to change the fan is a relatively simple task. Just keep track of where all the screws go and follow these steps:

1. Shutdown the laptop and remove the AC adapter. Disconnect any devices, such as a printer or external DVD-ROM or drive, that are attached to the laptop

2. Remove the laptop battery. Turn the laptop upside down, slide the battery release latch and then pull the battery out of the bay.

3. Unscrew the hard drive cover. Grab the hard drive tab and shift the hard drive to the left to unplug it. Lift the hard drive out of the bay.

4. Unscrew and remove the PCI memory cover, the optical drive cover, and switch cover.

5. Unscrew the two screws that hold the keyboard to the base, these are located in the middle of the rear panel. Flip the laptop over so it is right side up, open and remove the keyboard by using the keyboard release switches located above the keyboard. Next, unplug the Toshiba Satellite U205-S5067 Fan cable.

6. Close the laptop and turn it over so it is bottom up. Unscrew the display assembly screws located under the laptop screen hinges. Turn the laptop over so it is right side up. Open the laptop and unplug the display assembly cable and disconnect the wireless antenna from the display assembly. Unscrew the display assembly from the laptop base and remove.

7. Unplug the mouse pad cable. Turn the laptop over so the bottom side is up and unscrew the base screws which are located along all four sides of the laptop base. Gently remove the base of the laptop.

8. Turn the laptop over so it is right side up. Unplug the fan cable from the circuit board. Unscrew the screws holding the Toshiba Satellite U205-S5067 CPU fan assembly to the laptop. Lift the fan assembly out of the laptop.

9. Insert the new Toshiba Satellite U205-S5067 CPU fan assembly into the lap top. Screw the assembly unit to the lap top and plug the Toshiba Satellite U205-S5067 CPU cooling fan cable into the circuit board.

10. Reassemble the laptop by repeating the previous steps in reverse order.


Hope this helps.

Hello. I have Toshiba Satellite U205-S5034


Yes, this is replaceable. However, it is not easy to do and requires taking the motherboard out of the laptop and decent soldering skills. If your laptop is under warranty, consult the manufacturer and they may replace it for free. If not, computer repair places can do it for around $100 or so I believe. It is expensive due to the skills and time required.

The backlight problem can be caused by a faulty inverter or a faulty/worn out CCFL lamp.

Overheats. Fan runs constantly but unable to cool. Tried to open the laptop but do not know how to get to the sink


If you're unable to open your laptop to clean it, try getting a can of compressed air and spraying it directly into the heat vents for the processor. The cans only cost about ten dollars, and are vital for regular maintenance.

Disassembly to replace fan


I know I am too late but I just changed the fan in my U205-S5002. I couldn't find instructions anywhere so I decided to give it a try. It is very easy.
First remove all the screws below the laptop. There is only one small cover below the laptop. Remove the cover and disconect the Hard Drive. Now remove the plastic strip right above the keyboard by using a flat small screwdriver. Do not be afraid, you'll not break it. After removing the strip you will see 2 S3 screws. Remove them and the keyboard will be free to move. In order to remove the keyboard you'll have to disconnect a couple of connectors, by lightly pulling first the plastic stoppers (colored brown) out. After you have removed the keyboard you will see the fan in the upper left corner. Remove the 2 screws holding the fan and disconnect the connector (pay attention to the way the plug or the female goes in: the holes are on top). Installing the new fan is a piece of cake and so is putting everything back.
I hope this helps.
