Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite P105-S6227 Notebook ?

Fan cuts in for several seconds several times a minute

\015 The noise from this fan is driving me nuts. The fan comes on for about 7 seconds about every 10 to 15 seconds. The laptop is about 9 months old and the fan has always done this.I had the motherboard and fan replaced but it didn't help.I know of someone with a similar laptop that doesn't do this. Is there anything more that can be done? Should I lean on Toshiba for a replacement?The model number is PSU30C-AY308C.Thanks\015

Answers :

When you use your laptop, do you usually put it on your lap or on a bed ?
\015\012The reason for this question is quite simple. Toshibas have variable speed cooling fans
\015\012that are designed to elevate RPMS to compensate for elevated temperatures. If so,
\015\012try using your laptop on hard surfaces so the botom of the laptop recieves proper ventilation.
\015\012Another known issue is that they tend to gather dust inside the heat sink so you should try
\015\012inspecting it to see if it is clogged.
\015\012Good luck...
