Re: Satellite C660 - fan starts then stops


Sorry for my English, I'm French, I have a Toshiba Satellite C660 laptop a few days ago and I noticed that the fan starts and stops every minute at any time when the temperature exceeds about 40 degrees (noted with SpeedFan).
Even if I'm just the desktop, the Internet. However, it does not heat up much. Is this normal?

Before I had a laptop and the fan stops, but almost never had low-noise. I prefer it, but it's can be a simple matter of habit for the Toshiba...?



Try it please change cooling method option in the advanced power settings.

Open power options > n a click your power profile that you use > choose the advanced power options > Toshiba Power Saver Settings > cooling method > change two optimized battery options.

I think that this will reduce fan activity.

Please test and send feedback.

  • Satellite C660 - fan start every minute


    I just buy a Toshiba satellite it there two days now, but the fan turns on every minute when I go only on the web...

    Listening to music / videos, it is almost drowned out by the noise, but otherwise it's really headlock.

    It blows every minute 10/20 s and force even if he is not so strong, it's really disturbing.

    Is this normal?


    The fan would turn if the CPU would be stressed.
    You can check in the Task Manager process stresses the CPU and could check if you can disable it.

    In addition, I would recommend checking the Win 7 Power Management
    There you can change the settings of the optimised battery cooling modules.

    Hope this helps

  • The speakers click when the fan starts and stops Equium A100-147

    I recently bought the 100-147 satellite and noticed that a click comes from the speakers (or headphones or external speakers) when the fan starts up and even when the fan stops. Sometimes it s quite remarkable, other times not so remarkable.

    Everyone can hear that click? If it's normal, I can live with that, otherwise I will return it for repair. Any comment please?

    In addition, it seems slow at startup and shut down. Put into service takes 2 minutes and 35 seconds, and stop to 33 seconds. Is this normal bearing in mind, it is running MCE? I have loaded additional software such as Itunes, Nero, Office 2000, Photoshop 5.0 etc.

    Thank you for reading.

    Clicking noise when the fan starts or stops turning is not uncommon. On my satellite a similar sound will appear when the fans begin to turn or the HARD disk starts to spin.
    Then worry about don t, I think its OK.

    The start-up procedure can take several times when a lot of applications and software to load at the beginning. Equium A100 seems to be one of the newer laptops, and I assume that different applications Toshiba load at the beginning.
    Also an Antivirus applications could extend the startup procedure.

    You might try testing something. Disable the antivirus of loading at the beginning and check if the laptop will start faster.

    It s even with stops. All background processes that are run in the context of the operating system should be closed until the laptop shuts down completely.

  • Satellite A110-180 - fan starts but stops after a few seconds


    I have a Toshiba Satellite A110-180 and when I turn on the computer, the fan turns on but it stops in a few seconds and starts again in a while and stops again and starts... Then the laptop gets heat quickly.

    I bought the laptop about 5 years ago, so I think the problem is the fan or the circuit that controls the fan. Can someone who has had the same problem make sure that the fan is the problem?

    The fan part number is ATZHG000500. Does anyone know if a fan with P/N ATZHG000100 is compatible with my laptop, or if I can use another fan?

    Thanks for your help,

    Hey Wiley,

    First of all it of normal that the fan starts and after a few seconds, or 1 minute stops. Depending on the programs you run again the departure of fan after a few seconds or minutes. So, theoretically, it of normal what is happening.

    But if your laptop is almost 5 years old, you should try to clean. So I can recommend jet of compressed air. This could blow out the dust from the cooling fans. It is very cheap but very useful.
    Check it!

    In addition, I think that the thermal paste should be renewed a technicians authorized laptop can help you and answer if the other fan part number fits in your laptop. :)

  • Satellite C660 - the mouse pointer stops working when you start program

    Some features:
    Toshiba Satellite C660-1r1
    Windows 7 sp1
    Avast Antivirus (free version)

    When I start a program (for example. Sonos controller) on my laptop my mouse pointer stops working. It does not happen with all programs! When I go into Device Manager, my synaptic touchpad and my hid mouse is working also. When I press ctrl - alt - del, the pointer can move again, but when I come back it stops again. I have a work around is not a solution

    When I disconnect my windows account and log in again, it will solve the problem. When I start a program again the pointer will freeze up again.
    I did a complete system of virusscan and a pre start virusscan and my laptop is virus-free.
    I uninstalled the mouse and in drivers reinstalled synaptics them but that has not worked. I added a new account windows but that did not work.
    By pressing the keycombo FN + F9 has no effect.
    I am somehow at the end of my ideas...

    Can anyone help!

    When I start a program (for example. Sonos controller) on my laptop my mouse pointer stops working. It does not happen with all programs!

    This problem happens using the touchpad only or have you noticed the freezing of cursor using the external USB mouse too?

    What is the notebooks touchpad works properly without loading and using this 3rd party software?
    For example, work the touchpad with Microsoft office (Word, Excel, etc.) or navigation in internet by using IE or Chrome?

    My guess is that the pre-installed 3rd application part could affect the functionality of the touchpad.

  • Satellite A110 - 195 starts and stops

    When I try to start the laptop the power button is blue, I hear the CD drive making its tests, the fan starts for 5-10 seconds then stops and the screen remains black all this time. I encounter this problem when I connect only a/c, one battery (AC or battery).

    I tried to connect an external monitor and still nothing is displayed on this subject - the BIOS settings are on the LCD and external monitor.

    I unplugged the HARD drive in order to reduce energy consumption and to eliminate it from the list of possible sources of failure.

    From time to time, I managed to see the POST and then the operating system starts loading message on the LCD and monitor but after restart or market power, I get the same black screen.
    I searched on the internet and many people had this kind of problem with the different versions of Satellite but can't find any solution for it.

    Thanks a lot for any suspicion.

    > I have searched the Internet and many people had this kind of problem with the different versions of Satellite but can't find any solution for it.
    Do you really think that there is a magic solution for this? It is certainly a serious hardware problem that must be studied in service with diagnostic tools.

    All you're doing now is just and you can find out later that the problem may be but the question is: How do I solve this problem? Can you fix manboard? You can exchange motherboard? What you can do about it?

    In my opinion, all you can do is to find some mainboard already used at low cost, Exchange and hope that everything will be OK again. This can be something of a challenge for you and hope you can fix it. Otherwise, sell on eBay and get the most recent piece of hardware.

    Sorry, but I just try to be a little realistic.

  • Satellite C660/C660D starts not (black screen)

    So this morning after having attempted to power my Toshiba Satellite C660/C660D upward I met up with a black screen.

    The power lights both work and light, fans the vortex when I turn on but nothing ever comes on the screen, I was wondering if someone could help here?

    It is less than 3 months.

    To be honest I really don t know how to help you.
    Remove the battery, leave the laptop for a while and try to start the laptop with AC power only. Try to do several times with or without battery. If nothing is done it must be a hardware problem, so I recommend you contact Toshiba service and ask for help.

    Guarantee is valid, then there is no reason to worry about this.

  • Satellite A500D - fan does not stop


    Two days ago I updated the Bios to version 1.20 win, and since then, the fan is constantly at 72% and the temperature of the CPU at 36 º.

    At Toshiba, I say it is normal, but the fan does not stop at any time and the noise is annoying.

    Anteriormento updated the BIOS, the fan stopped and started and never surpassed 54%.

    Looks like a vergueza by the care service, they have given me, I tried to deceive, as is normal for a portable fan that keeps 72%.

    Please I need someone to tell me where I can download before my Bios and how to install it.

    PS: My processor ens Turion Rm-77.

    A welcome message


    You mean the cooling module fan didn't run all the time with the previous BIOS version?

    Well, in this case you must downgrade BIOS to the previous version.
    The problem is that you can download the latest version of the BIOS from the Toshiba page.

    But maybe a Toshiba ASP might help you and may downgrade the BIOS to the previous version

    But have you tried to change the settings in Win 7 power option?
    You can find it in the control panel-> power options

    There you can change modes of single power supply.
    In the power settings advanced, you'll find settings Toshiba energy saver and there you can change the method of cooling while the laptop is running on battery or power.

  • Satellite C660-1NX freezes while stop after a new install of Win 7


    The first sorry for my English, I'm Spanish and use a translator.

    I have a Satellite C660-1NX (PSC1LE-00F00NCE), I had to reformat the computer, put on a clean Windows 7 64 x (no recovery) with all the original drivers giving the official page of Toshiba.

    Everything seems perfect, but when turn off the computer is frozen, I thought it was x 64 and x 86 and install the same, straight day, then started the same problem, eh update of the BIOS, as used before formatting it didn't happen, it's very weird.

    I find that the reason for the problem never happened to any computer that.

    Best regards

    and what happen when you install the system using the recovery disk?
    The laptop is too cold?

    I doubt that someone will be able to say why the unit does not close properly.
    First of all, I think its necessary to find out if its hardware or software problem.

    In the case where its software related issue, the recovery disc that contains the image of configured Toshiba should fix this annoying problem.

  • Satellite A30 554: start and stop the question automatically

    After about a year of use my computer laptop (Satellite A30 554) started having problems with the starter. Quite often when I turn it on cooler starts working and the LEDs are showing that the computer is on, but the screen remains black. Sometimes, I need to turn off the PC and on a couple of times so that he can start to begin. What is the reason for this and can it be resolved?

    Once I had a problem with this computer off by itself while working, which was not caused by a virus. Some people advised me to vacuum clean :) under cooler. I did and it helped.

    The problem was supposed to be linked to the dust on the heatsink, which does not allow that it works correctly. The current problem also connectable to the cooler, or is - it a motherboard problem?


    Generally speaking, if it starts and does even not initializing the monitor, or starts and turns off immediately, it could be the motherboard. It helps to remove each device at a time and try to start the computer. Sometimes when the parts become defective they still affect the ability to start. If, after removing all devices, that the problem persists, then your motherboard is faulty and must be replaced. Hope that fix you the problem.

  • I can't open my email IE account - it starts then stops and an error pop up My IP tried but it's IE-I have windows XP

    After a Windows Update - the next morning I couldn't open IE to get my emails. It starts to load and then stops. An error message appears that says: an unknown error has occurred. Account ' pop - Server "pop - server" pop protocol: pop3, port110 Secure [SSL}: no, error # Ox800co133.]    I called my provider IP-BRIGHT HOUSE and the Department tech ran me through a bunch of hoops and finally said the problem was with Windows.

If anyone can help I would know you more. I depend on my e-mail with the requirements of the order and stay in touch with my friends and my daughter-son. Thank you very much. Cordially - Donald

    Hi Donald,.
    Here is a walk through one of our best community members Bruce Hagan.
    I think that this is your specific problem.

    Error number: 0x800C0133 = a corrupt Inbox.

    Move any message you want to save to a local folder that you create. Then, remove the problem of Inbox as follows.

    Tools | Options | Maintenance | Store folder will reveal the location of your Outlook Express files. Note the location and navigate on it in Explorer Windows or, copy and paste in start | Run.

    In Windows XP, Win2K & Win2K3 the OE user files (DBX and WAB) are by default marked as hidden. To view these files in Windows Explorer, you must enable Show hidden files and folders under start | Control Panel | Folder options | View.

    With OE closed, find the box of Inbox.dbx and delete it. Another will be created automatically when you open OE.

    General precautions for Outlook Express:

    Do not archive mail in the receipt or sent items box. Create your own user-defined folders and move messages you want to put in them. Empty the deleted items folder daily. Although the dbx files have a theoretical capacity of 2 GB, I recommend all a 300 MB max for less risk of corruption.

    After you're done, followed by compacting your folders manually while working * off * and do it often.

    Click Outlook Express at the top of the the folder tree so no folders are open. Then: File | Work offline (or double-click on work online in the status bar). File | Folder | Compact all folders. Don't touch anything until the compacting is completed.

    Disable analysis in your e-mail anti-virus program. It is a redundant layer of protection that devours the processors and causes a multitude of problems such as time-outs and account setting changes. Your up-to-date A / V program will continue to protect you sufficiently. For more information, see:

  • Satellite C660 - cannot start the facial recognition software

    When I try to run face recognition software I get a window saying to contact my administrator - I have the status of administration on the Satellite C660 laptop.

    Research forum that I found did not help in any time I try and follow the advice, I still get the same message. The laptop is new.


    I think that this tool is confusing upward in some way. Therefore, the first thing that should be judged is a new software installation. I recommend you to uninstall this tool first.
    You can do it is Panel-> software

    After the uninstall, it would be recommended to clean the registry. This can be done by using a software like CCleaner.
    After that, download Toshiba face recognition software pilot European page and install again.

    Good luck
