Having problems with your Computer System Cooling ?

I have a new NB205 mini toshiba lap top and i am getting a cooling system error return for service. But if i shut it off and pull the battery sometimes it works for a while and the fan comes on.


Answers :

I think the bearings in your fan are failing. When that happens there is a lot of resistance to turning to overcome because the bearings are dirty and dragging. You might be able to jolt it into running off and on but it won't run at full speed and it probably won't cool your system adequately. You just need to get the fan changed. It could damage your system running it without a fan. CPU's develope a lot of heat in a short amount of time.
