Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A205-S4617 Notebook ?

Beeping then shuts down.

\015 I have a Satellite M65 laptop. After about ten minutes of running, it starts to beep for about 2 minutes and then shuts off. Though it was the cooling fan failure but I can hear it running on low speed when it starts to beep. The cooling fan does not switch to high like it used to do. When starting up the laptop, the fan runs in a self check mode and the the fan comes on high.I found a updated BIOS for it and ran that. It work for awhile (about a week) then went right back to the beeping. Any idea because I'm out!\015
