Having problems with your Toshiba PC Laptops ?

Satellite A215-S7444 laptop's fan is no longer working. Was working earlier. What do I do to fix it?


Answers :

If the fan was making a bearing noise and has stopped spinning then the fan needs to be replaced.
\015\012The fan may have stopped spinning because it is clogged with dust, if so loosen with a still brush and vacuum to remove the dust.
\015\012A faulty fan will cause the CPU to overheat and shutdown the computer and will not start up again until it has cooled down. Continue to ignore this it will eventually cause the CPU to fail.
