Having problems with your Toshiba Tecra A2 Notebook ?

Almost dead A2

\015 I was recently given an old A2. It has a new battery and adapter. However, although the green light comes on and it warms up to the touch, there is nothing happening. The fan does not start and the screen remains dark. I have tried connecting it to a separate monitor but still nothing happens. It's age and the cost precludes taking it to a professional. Can anyone point me in the right direction bearing in mind that I am a laptop novice.Fletch\015

Answers :

If the fan is not workng on the A2 you nedd to purchse a new one as the fan stops the computer from over heating and catch fire,if no fan it will not allow computer to opperate.Take the case of the bottom or look to see where it is installed .You should be able to refit it your self if your can find a replacement fan,.Try serching on the web for a supplier. yours Mel
