Satellite U500-10F - Dungeon fan turning ON and OFF all the time

Hello world

Just bought my u500-10F and installed Windows 7 Enterprise on this.

Having a very weird problem, the fan keep turn on/off all the time every 10 seconds or more, even without any CPU load. Any ideas? Is there a fan control software?


As you know that Win7 is not released and without support, there is therefore no Toshiba Software for any type of power control and the fan at the moment.

Have you noticed the same behavior of fan preinstalled Vista operating system?

  • Why my PC fans turn at maximum speed all the time?

    I hear fans ramping down when I do and reported by the BIOS fan status seems to support my theory that the fans really slow. Unfortunately, I do not yet have equipment controlling software installed on my PC so I don't see no confirmation of the fan speeds up when running in Windows 8. [HP has none of these tools?]

    If I stop and restart Windows 8 normally (so that it uses its startup optimizations 'fast'), then fans seem to go for the maximum RPM.

    The machine was purchase in Nov 2012: apparently not the internal dust is the problem and it would be not fixed by forcing a boot cold. I suspect that it is a software problem (I consider the offending software if it does not reset the hardware correctly at startup).

    It seems that the fans turn upward but never slow down: is it possible to fix this? I wish that the machine to shut up when it isn't loaded (without having to reboot to get it that way). Otherwise, there is no performance or stability problems (yay).

    This seems to be the problem with your bios on the desktop.
    Discover the same fan speed if you have only the keyboard, mouse and the power cord is connected.
    Also check out an update of the bios on the desktop.
    This would probably solve the problem.
    You have a bios update available on the HP Web site.

  • M35 satellite turns off all the time

    My Satellite M35 turns off all the time.
    Trigger, then it dies.

    Advice please

    Seems to be a problem of overheating!
    Usually, this happens because the cooling modules cannot turn with maximum performance and cannot cool the internal devices properly!

    Why is this happening? Well, the reason is the dust and debris that prevent the fans work properly!
    I recommend cleaning with compressed air stream fans that can be purchased in most computer resellers!

    Good bye

    Think about it an absolute must - manually update your drivers.

    Vista and Windows 7 updated drivers love then here's how update the most important.

    This is my generic how updates of appropriate driver:

    This utility, it is easy see which versions are loaded:

    -Free - DriverView utility displays the list of all device drivers currently loaded
    on your system. For each driver in the list, additional useful information is
    Poster: load address of the driver, description, version, product name,.
    company that created the driver and more.

    For drivers, visit Maker as replacements and system manufacturer of device which are
    the most recent. Control Panel - write - graphics card - device manager
    the brand and complete model of your video card - double click - tab of the driver-
    Note the version information. Now click on UPdate Driver (this can do nothing
    MS is far behind the certification of drivers) - then do a right click - Uninstall - REBOOT
    This will refresh the driver stack.

    Repeat this for network - card (NIC), Wifi network, sound, mouse, and keyboard
    If there are 3rd party with their own software and drivers and the other main device drivers
    you have.

    Now, go to the site of the manufacturer of system (Dell, HP, Toshiba as examples) (restore)
    and site (Realtek, Intel, Nvidia, ATI, for example) and get the manufacturer and device
    their latest versions. (Look for the system to update the BIOS, Chipset and software updates
    Site of the manufacturer here.)

    Download - SAVE - go to where you put them - right click - RUN AD ADMIN -.
    REBOOT after each installation.

    Always check in the Device Manager - drivers tab to be sure the version you are
    installation actually appears. This is because that some rollback of drivers before the
    later is installed (particularly that audio drivers) so install a driver - reboot.
    Make sure that it is installed and repeat if necessary.

    Repeat to the manufacturers - BTW to the device makers DO NOT RUN THEIR
    SCANNER - check manually by model.

    Look at the sites of the manufacturer for drivers - and the manufacturer of the device manually.

    Installation and update of drivers under Windows 7 (updated drivers manually using
    the above methods is preferable to ensure the latest drivers from the manufacturer of system
    and device manufacturers are located)

    If you update the drivers manually, then it's a good idea to disable driver facilities
    in the updates of Windows, which leaves on Windows updates, but it will not be installed
    pilots who are generally older and cause problems. If updates provides a new
    driver then hide it (right click on it) and then go get new ones manually if
    you want.

  • Bug in version 6.2.1 of the filter? (flag to reset filters turned off all the time)

    I love working with the filter with indicator / without indicator with my photos.
    With the 6.2.1 last version, with indicator filter go back "filter off" all the time.
    Example, 3 pictures are marked, I select, I merge them into an HDR... .and when you finish the filter is reset to filters turned off.
    Also edit a photo in Photoshop... .returning to lightroom... .filters off

    Quite boring!

    also ask, if you merge 3 pictures that are flagged (picked) in an HDR, it would be nice that the merged result is marked as?

    I think that you have unlocked filters.  Make sure this file > library Filters > Lock filters is verified (the lock is also represented by the padlock on the right end of the library filter bar - make sure that it is locked).  When it is locked, the current filter is not changed by Photo > merge pictures (at least in my 2015.2.1 CC).

  • Satellite A135-S4666 - cooling fan turns on and turns off every 20 seconds


    I'm from the Argentina... I just bought a new Satellite A135-S4666 and I noticed that the cooling fan turns on and turns off every 20 seconds.
    It is a little annoying and it disctracts me of what I'm doing... is there a solution?

    Thank you very much.

    Hi Martin,

    This behavior is perfectly normal and nothing to worry about. If you find the noise irritating cooling fans you are likely to change their behavior by using the utility of Toshiba power where you should be able to set the cooling mode to run more quietly. I think trhe default is to allow the CPU to run at full speed, which will, of course, the fans turn every few seconds, but by reducing the speed of the CPU, the heat produced will be lower and therefore the fans will run less often.

    Kind regards

  • Satellite A300D - Turn off all the time

    My wife has a Satellite A300D (model PSAK4E) and it keeps closing. The two randomy and when induced under certain conditions

    Previously, I tested the HARD drive and found bad sectors then replaced with a 64 GB SSD. I tried to install Windows 7 but it kept fault towards the end. So I reset the machine without a battery and now the power button for 2 minutes to clear the memory. Installed Windows 7 + updates.

    I was worried about stopping all the time but flashed the BIOS. Flash worked.

    Laptop resets always? I have reviewed several possible causes and wanted to get other peoples ideas
    1 HARD drive - replaced and even resets
    2. battery - ran on power sector only and even resets
    3 overheating - sometimes under certain conditions (memmory tests or you try to run certain applications) or randomly (without reason)
    4. a broken circuit somewhere on the motherboard
    5 - completely new OS + software resets the laptop when using some applications from a live disk.

    Thank you inadance for the help

    Hi me_in_oz,

    Theoretically the laptop turn off itself due to a higher internal temperature to protect the equipment against damage.
    In this case, you will need to clean the laptop using jet of compressed air to blow the dust from the cooling fans. It is easy and takes only a few minutes to check out this article:
    [How to clean a Toshiba laptop cooling system? |]

    Otherwise it seems to be a serious hardware problem and your laptop should be checked for professional people. Probably it s a malfunction of the motherboard

  • Tecra series fan turns on and off without stopping


    I have a Tecra A3 - 185 with processor 1.73 and 504 MB of RAM, which otherwise, I'm very happy for. The only problem (but important) is that the cooling fan constantly turns on and turns off. When the standby power system is turned on high-performance computer (when browsing, emailing or even doing nothing) active fan cooling for 25 seconds it turns off for 20 seconds, is it on again for another 25 seconds and so on.

    There is no even when he uses 0% CPU. I tried to change the power settings so the processor speed is reduced to 3-6 (whatever that means) with some success, but it's not really dealing with the problem all together.

    I had an another Toshiba before without any problems of this kind. Could someone tell me if it is supposed to be like this? (As I'm about to throw the computer out the window close-very annoying with this turn ups-thing) and if it is, give me some settings of the device which will take care of the problem of energy saving.

    Please check this:
    Here, you posted the same.

    Uttered in another thread, it's normal behavior. The fan starts to spin when a certain temperature level has been reached and stops turning when the temperature drops.

  • Playback devices are turned on and off at the same time.

    Somehow, my audio devices have all been disabled and enabled at the same time. I have speakers and bluetooth headset and it shows they are both active in the playback Panel devices and my headset as default device. The equalizing bar which usually goes next to them has disappeared, however. When I try to disable them, nothing happens. When I run a convenience store on one of the devices, it says that the problem is that the device is disabled and says to activate manually. But I can not because it is already activated. Do the side slide to open the control panel displays the volume button dimmed with the text, "disabled" underneath.

    My operating system is Windows 8. My bluetooth device is BTH220. My speakers are realtek high definition audio.
    I updated all my audio drivers and restarted my computer several times. I tried disabling and disconnection of the devices and convenience stores running. Nothing seems to work.
    Thanks for any help you have!
