Answers :

There may be a cover on the bottom you can remove to expose the fan and air duct. Open all the covers you can find. If you expose the fan and duct, try vacuuming the area to remove all the accumulated dust and grime. There may appear to be a filter near the outer end of the duct. It is not a filter but is accumulated dust and grime. Use a tooth pick or something to dislodge it and vacuum it up. If you can, remove the plate covering the fan and clean it too. Try powering the computer to see if the fan turns. It may also need some lubrication. If there is a lable in the center of the fan and the lable doesn't spin, lift half the lable and the bearing will ew exposed. a couple of drops of very light oil will do. DO NOT USE WD40. It is a water dispersant and drying agent. Welcome to the world of "Do It YourSelf".
If you are able to check and make sure 100% that it's not working, you have 2 choices:
If it's under warranty I'd send it in to get looked at. Having all your cooling fans working, especially in a laptop, it very important.
If the laptop is not under warranty, you can purchase replacement fans from the manufacturer's website or even Ebay if you know what you are looking for. Depending on how familiar you are with your laptop, you may just want to take it in to a pc repair shop to get it fixed, because taking a laptop apart to fix anything at all can be a very daunting task, and things can go wrong very easily if you don't know what you are doing.

Toshiba a135 laptop screen goes blank during battery use. only way to recover is to put the laptop to sleep blinking orange, and then restart. This action keeps the screen on. Could this be a bios problem? After recovery the power cord is plugged in and the situation never repeats during that session of running. This happens somewhat regularly.

You indicated that this ONLY happens when the battery is being used and does not happen if the power supply is being used. This indicates that battery may very well be the problem.More clarification ok? Do the following for me:\015\ ... Toshiba Satellite A135-S2276 Notebook

I have a Acer Aspire 5520 laptop and i updated the bios using a flash utility off the manufacturers web site and when it booted back up it would lock up my mouse and keyboard for like 10 min. at a time. So i went to reinstall the bios driver update and it errored in the middle of the flash. Now the pc comes on i see system lights and here system noises for like two seconds then it shuts back off all the way lights drives and fans for like two secs then it does the same thing over and over again.
