Satellite Pro M70 - cooling fan stopped working


I have a laptop M70, I have recently identified as not very hot when in use. I have now identified that the fan has stopped working.

Any ideas how I can get this fan, so I give it a clean and check that the connected fan isn't loose etc.?

Thank you

Are you sure that your cooling module has stopped working 100%?
Maybe the cooling module is ok but cannot run with maximum performance and can not cool the CPU correctly because of the dust and debris inside the laptop?
What do you think of this theory?

I can tell you that I read a lot of stories and gossip on overheating problems and be more honest to these issues could be solved by cleaning fans.

I clean my cooling fans from time to time with a jet of compressed air.
These sprays are professional tools and can be purchased in most dealers specialized computers.

But if the fan has stopped working and then a jet of compressed air will not help you.
In this case, a technician must check the laptop.

Maybe the laptop must completely disassemble to remove and replace the defective part.
This procedure is really tricky and must be performed by a technician for laptop.

Good luck buddy

    Have you tried to update the driver WLAN? You can find it on the Toshiba site or portal driver WLAN:

    Have you checked for yellow exclamation marks Device Manager?

    Check if the laptop WLAN switch lights up and I can disable/enable WLAN with FN + F9 on my Satellite phone.
    Check it!

  • Satellite Pro C650 - cooling fan does not work

    My Satellite Pro C650 overheats and stops automatically within 20 minutes of leaving upwards. I checked the CPU fan and noticed that it does not turn upward, even if the laptop would become very hot. I tested the fan with a 9 volt battery and it works perfectly.

    Can someone tell me exactly what the problem is? And how to solve it.

    Thank you.

    > Can someone tell me exactly what the problem is?
    On this virtual path, no one can say with certainty what the problem is. We can only speculate what may be the problem.
    Usually, cooling fan starts immediately after starting the laptop slows down and offers the optimum temperature of material. After reading your ad I didn t understand how it works. He turns and there is no sign of life?
    Problem can be power.
    Cooling fan will be controlled by sensors of temperature and activity depends on the temperature of the material but if your machine cooling fan does not work, I imagine that there is no electric power.

  • Satellite Pro A120 - cooling fan runs constantly


    Bought a satellite pro A120 "Intel centrino duo" in January and for the last two weeks, the fan runs continuously. Even when the cold portable OS, it runs complete but even just word processing or done yesterday it runs very hot. I need to access the fan to have a look for dust etc but I couldn't for access!

    If anyone knows how that would be great. Either that or somebody can suggest any way to stop the laptop gets so hot. I tried on mode low power - without change, and it also works on different surfaces, but no change.

    Any help much appreciated. Thank you

    Hello Dougie

    In my opinion you should not do much and check anything because your laptop is new and under warranty. If something is suspicious to you, please contact your dealer local or much better is to contact directly the authorized services.

    Explain the situation and let it check your laptop.

  • Satellite Pro A300 - 2C5 has stopped working


    I have a problem with my Toshiba Pro A300 - 2C5.
    It stopped working today.

    I have paid a top tea but removed is as fast as possible but a little water got inside my laptop.

    When I try to turn it on, the syptoms are as follows:
    -the only light that shines is a power indicator light
    -l' screen does not work at all (it stays black and went offshore)
    -fan works
    -It seems hard disk does not work if Windows does not start
    -the keyboard does not work, when I hit tke keys nothing happenes, I tested the Caps Lock key, but not flashing
    -computer does not read my camera memory card

    What shoul I do to get it working again? :(
    Any help appreciated.



    The anomaly can be related to different laptop parts in the worst case the liquid spill damage the motherboard and you will need to replace the part.
    In the best cases, it could be a RAM error as it happens to one of my friends.
    He spilled coke on the keyboard and after awhile the laptop could not turn on.
    We checked memory sharp and replaced both modules with new RAM modules and this fixed the problem

    You can try this also maybe it helps if all other parts should be checked by a technician of the ASP.

  • Satellite L750 - 22 X - fan stops working

    Replaced the fan with a new one and paste, heat sink applied, but same problem persists as in the old fan, it stops spinning randomly after 30 min - 2 hours and then the laptop turns off. BIOS is on the latest version.

    Help, please


    The cooling fan is controlled by the fan which is stored in the BIOS table.
    It of really difficult to say why the cooling fan is not working properly, but I guess that there must be a problem with the BIOS settings of DMI, or probably with the motherboard.

    I think that the laptop must be verified by the authorized service provider.

  • Satellite pro m30 cooling fan

    I have a satiellite pro spm30 model, it took sirvice Center because the machein becomes Veery hot & I do not taken cooling fan at all, when I connect to the net computer frezs if I open multiple pages and he returned after a protest and continue to do it.
    Srvc.Ctr.told me your changed the mother board fan becase is bult in it.and they have updated the system bios.
    The problem still excist and still not hear the fan running at all.

    How can I test the operation of the cooling fan?
    what you recommend me to do?
    Help, please.



    As far as I know, you can find a lot of applications to test and maintain the fan settings.
    But it is very dangerous because by using this software you change the thermal management of your laptop. These programs are not supported by Toshiba, for any damage caused by this program is not covered by the warranty.


    The only issue is the Toshiba Service partner, but
    Contact them again.

  • On Satellite Pro P300 touchpad has stopped working


    I have a Satellite Pro P300 equipped of Vista and the scrolling feature broke on my machane too.
    I also lost the touchpad icon in my taskbar and function to configure the touchpad.

    I've uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers, nothing works.

    If I had more hair, I would probably be pulling it. Help, please.

    Thank you


    What drivers you have reinstalled exactly? Normally, you can download all the drivers from the official website of Toshiba: > support & downloads > download drivers

    Have you tested the scrolling feature using an external mouse?

  • Satellite Pro L300 - WLAN connection stopped working

    FN + 8 indicates that the wireless is as shown in the icon but suddenly tonight the connection failed while I was looking through internet and I can't get it back.

    I have reset the modem - the laptop is connected by ethernet cable to a modem, even with a good connection. The laptop is around the age of 16 months and is currently running Windows 7 Pro. I've updated all the drivers tonight, but even if it is 'on', it does not work.

    The usb wireless modem will dig tomorrow, but I wonder if the card has abandoned :(


    Everything is possible. Wireless network card appears correctly in the Device Manager?

    In any case if you can use the WLAN USB stick it will be probably easier and quicker solution for you.

  • Satellite Pro A300 Touchpad has stopped working

    As the title suggests.

    My laptop is a Satelltie Pro A300 2 4.

    The Touchpad is not responding,

    I tried FN F9 - nothing happens.
    I tried pressing the upper left corner of the Touchpad - nothing happens.
    I tried to go to the mouse control panel and looking for an enable bit Touchpad cannot find the mouse set.

    The operating system is Windows 7


    Have you tried to install the driver for the touchpad?
    You can find the driver for the touchpad on Toshiba UE driver page.

    Extra tip: in some cases possible to enable and disable the touchpad in the BIOS.
    Please check this!

    By the way: is an external USB mouse attached to the laptop? If so, unplug it and try to use the touchpad

  • Satellite Pro M70 - mousepad stopped working

    The internal mouse on my Toshiba Satellite PRO M70 pad went dead. The cushion or the two buttons mouse work. It still works with an external optical mouse.

    Are you sure that the mouse pad feature is not disabled by using the FN + F9 key combination? Please check this box.

  • Satellite Pro M70 - stopped screen lights


    My Toshiba Satellite PRO M70 screen lights.
    I don't know why, but sometimes when the screen is broken and I put it up it turns on, but after a few seconds it stops.

    It started a few days without something strange in my pc like hitting or something like that.
    I tried to connect an external display and it works weell.

    Anyone know why it cant pass or how fix it?

    Thank you




    The Fn keys work?
    You can increase the display button narrowly by using the FN + F7 combination?

    Please also check the energy saving profile.
    Maybe the display brightness is set to a lower value in the power saver profile.

    But if you will not find anything unusual in the settings of the software, so I guess that the brightness display problem is related to the failure of inverter FL.
    The FL inverter controls the brightness of the screen, and this part needs to be replaced.

  • For Satellite Pro M70-220 laptop cooling pad

    I want to buy a block of cooling for my laptop Satellite Pro M70-220 (PSM75E) and would appreciate advice and recommendations on the most appropriate cooling pad. Plateau broken down to use the desktop, rather that the tower would use.

    The dimensions of the base of the laptop are about 34.5 cm (W) x 24 cm (P) - (or 13.5 ins (W) x 9.5 ins (D)).

    The laptop has 2 vents in fan - a vent is located on the left side (half back) of the laptop, and other the vent is located on the left side of the base in line with the side wind. Subject to correction, I feel that the cold air is sucked through the vent base and is blown through the vent on the left side. If that is correct, then I guess the cooling pad fan would blow air on the basis of the laptop, thus completing the airflow of the computer laptop cooling fan.

    Thank you

    Hi Alan

    Before starting to discuss cooling pad, I want to ask you why you need. I have Satellite M70-159 and have never even think to buy this extra part.

    Have you ever watched on the net and found something that may be good enough for you?

  • Satellite Pro M70: removal of the USB device causes other peripheral USB does not work

    Withdrawal/use of a USB for a USB device causes devices on USB port to get affected.

    Satellite Pro M70-199 (2 GB RAM)
    Windows XP Pro (SP2) with all updates of Windows installed until end of October 2006.
    This laptop has 3 USB ports.
    An Eicon Diva ISDN USB modem is connected to a USB port.

    When certain devices connected to a different USB port are deleted (even if removed safely with "eject" or "remove device safely", it causes the ISDN modem to file either a double channel (64 k + 64 k) ISDN, or for the ISDM modem to disconnect completely.)

    Cause this include any memory stick USB, MP3 player (ipod and creative zen) and so on.

    Do other devices, such as USB external hard drives & sometimes external DVD USB drives, and sonetimes do not produce this problem.

    Is this a known issue?
    If it is a hardware interrupt problem, how to solve it?
    This problem is related to the modem and the laptop?

    As a note, in addition, intermittent (random) times (cannot reproduce all the time, but it happens once or twice a day) when a USB device is accessible it causes the modem USB ISDN to drop a single channel, even if the lights on the modem still show it as it is connected. In this case and the case above, the only way to get the modem ISDN USB running again is physically disconnect and reconnect.

    The reason why it is a crucial issue is that:
    (1) the modem speed is halved or disconnected
    (2) the ISP continues to full rate for a double load connection even if a channel has been dropped.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    I have Satellite M70-159 and I didn t notice any strange problems with the USB ports. I use a few of them as printer, webcam, USB, memory stick, optical mouse, and external HARD drive. The devices are recognized correctly and I always remove without option delete without danger.

    Now I have Vista pre-installed and there is no problem so far. If I understand you right USB ports work fine but there is problem with USB modem only. Am I wrong?
    Also try to contact the producer of modem support. Is perhaps the question like this known and if all goes well, they have a logical explanation.

  • Satellite Pro M70 and (not) working with projector


    I have a Satellite Pro M70 (model PSM76E-00100KEN), and when I connect it to all a projector, it appears via the projector is the image of the office.

    The laptop continues to work OK, but the projected image never changes the background image I have on the laptop.

    On the power of the laptop Windows XP logo comes at a time, but then other changes of the display appear on the laptop.

    It has ATI mobility Radeon X600SE graphics card. This card allows 2 screens and when I activate it it starts flashing number 1 on the cell phone and number 2 on the projector, but still shows only WinXP only on the laptop.

    Any ideas on how to get the two to work together?
