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.

  • Xbox one constantly turning on and off without touching

    Hello, I bought an Xbox one a few days ago, and he played upward. I got it on 23 or 22 and it worked perfectly, I tried to turn it on today and it turned power then he was playing this noise on and off many times. I think there may be a scratch on the power button because it is a gamepad Wii U, so theres a tooth, it will glitch because it is easy to get, like the Xbox on the power button is sensitive. Can someone please help me and tell if they have had the same problem as me. Please answer me as soon as possible!

  • How to change the fan turning on and off in Tecra 8100?

    I would like to know if this is a way to tell the Bios or the utility how to set temperatures and speed to keep my cool computer of the fan.

    There are several utilities in internet for this but they do not work on Tecra 8100...

    Thank you.


    Toshiba Power saver is preinstalled on all Toshiba units.
    This software controls the function of the cooling module and CPU usage.
    You can set the processor speed and performance of the fans.

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • structure of the event to turn on and off a LED

    Good afternoon

    I would like to activate a part of my algorithm according to the value in another part. To make it easier, I symbolize the value by a button and tried a structure of user event to turn on or turn off an LED located in another while loop.

    I can turn on the LED, but unfortunately I can't spend off of the LED thereafter.

    It is possible to change the structure of the event and select the option "change value". However, I would like the fatest way to turn on and off using the structure of the event and the Bay. I mean I would like activate a part of the algorithm only if the button is enabled for not having a continuous audit of the value of the button by the structure of the event.

    Please, if anyone has an idea to turn off the LED (after the switch on), add a comment without hesitation.

    I will be happy to solve this simple problem.

    Thanks in advance for your help.


    You have a race condition.

    When you click stop, it's a race about whether if the event gets not saved and destroyed by the removal of the stem all loop against sending the same user in the lower loop.

    Why it only seems to happen with the case of false must be a quirk of how the code is compiled and the order, it is run.

    If you put a step between your Boolean switch and LED, for me anyway, the error is now generated on the true case of the structure of matter (always false for switch.).

    If you put a constant error in the lower loop and wire while guaranteeing the Unregister event so that you now it does not run until the two while loops are arrested, then I don't see a mistake regardless of the value of the Boolean switch when you click stop.

  • I will still have my firewall turned on and off I do not know why but I tried another firewall, and it seems to work ok

    I had some trobele with my computer and had to take it when I got it. The firewall was working fine. I do not know

    I will still have my firewall turned on and off I do not know why but I tried another firewall, and it seems to work ok

    Hey Roscoe,

    If you're still using MSE, I doubt there's this problem.  This made a few changes to the Windows Firewall during installation (if necessary), but certainly nothing that would cause it to turn on and off like that.  It could be malware (malware can cause anything), but frankly more sounds like a file systems or corruption or some type of problem with your Windows Firewall or security setting or your operating system in a more general sense rather than the malicious software.  I will refer you to experts who specialize in this kind of thing, but if they tell you it's a malware problem, then come back here and we will be happy to help you solve it.

    For that matter as described, please post here to get the best advice from specialists in this: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/security?tab=all which will be more than happy to help you.  You will probably need to uninstall the other firewall you have installed so they can diagnose the problem properly and without hindrance (not just disable it, but completely uninstall to be sure) - but they can tell you more on this subject.  Don't forget up next to the Windows Version to use the dropmenu to choose your version if you find yourself in the most appropriate forum for your system.

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck!

  • Incessant turning on and off between machines?

    I use Production Premium 5.5 at work and now I need to work often at home. I understand that my license allows installation on two computers that I am the primary user of and the two computers cannot run the software at a time.

    That I need to turn off Production Premium and everything is modules each afternoon so I can use it at home and then turn on and off every night at home so I can use the next day at work? Or includes the software, via an internet connection, I guess, that the other licensed computer does not use the software at the moment which allows me to use it without the mess of constantly activation / deactivation twice a day?

    You do not have to disable the facility any circumstance other than wanting to install and activate it on another computer.

  • TE2000 - screen turns on and off quickly

    Hi all

    My TE2000 was wrong flashing. The screen turns on and off quickly, sometimes every second quarter or so, it seems, so bad that I can hardly read the display. It's like someone is pressing the lid-switch very quickly.

    It happens sporadically. Sometimes it won't happen for a few minutes. Other times it flashes just once or twice, and still other times, it becomes unbearable and continues for minutes at a time.

    Someone has an idea of what could be the cause? I looked into the screens of replacement on e - bay and cannot find a lot...


    Have you tried to check if this problem also appears on external monitor?
    Not? Try to do that! If it doesn't appear that on the screen TFT internal display then it s not a graphics chip malfunction but display or a failure of inverter FL.

    Looking for a second hand TFT screen?
    It seems that the laptop TE2000 supports a 14.1 "1024 x 768 TFT color screen
    Therefore, you can use each view of each laptop that supports the 14.1 screen size

    Good luck

  • Computer not start, screen black, I have to turn on and off several times (I have Vista)

    When I turn on the computer, you hear the sound that is running, but I get a black screen with a white underscore on the upper left. Click on keyboard and nothing happened. I must turn on and off several times and then I get the Windows Vista logo.

    If the 2 methods below do not work, you may have to reinstall Vista:

    Restore point:

    Try typing F8 at startup and in the list of Boot selections, select Mode safe using ARROW top to go there > and then press ENTER.

    Try a restore of the system once, to choose a Restore Point prior to your problem...

    Click Start > programs > Accessories > system tools > system restore > choose another time > next > etc.


    If the above does not work, try to make a Bootable ERD to do a Startup Repair:

    As is the case with most computers/laptops these days, they do not come with good Vista disc to repair only the recovery disks.

    As your grave in the category above, download the ISO on the provided link and do a repair of the disc.

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu.

    When you have changed that, insert the Bootable disk you did in the drive and reboot.

    You can make a tool to restart system, System Restore, etc. with it.

    Read all the info on the website on how to create and use it.


    ISO Burner: http://www.snapfiles.com/get/active-isoburner.html

  • Loading with interruptions, screen turns on and off

    I always put my phone in silent mode and plug it in before going to bed. I noticed it turns the screen several times during loading. I can't that assume this is caused by the brief on the charger, the screen always turns when the phone is connected.

    When the battery is almost full, it often becomes extreme the screen starts to turn on and off quickly. This morning, I took a screenshot of the use of the battery before disconnecting. It shows a decrease in the rate of load to 100%, indicating my phone set on another light show.

    I tried two different Chargers, (one came with the Z3C we speak, the other with my Xperia V) a magnetic cable and mini-usb ordinary and even three Sockets different. Problem persists.

    While I do not notice an impact on the performance of my farm, I'm afraid that it will destroy my battery finally. My phone is only six weeks old. Someone at - he seen this before? Any ideas to fix this?

    Hey guys,.

    I finally thought to it: it turns out that a clock plugged into another outlet in the same room was the cause of the problem.

    I hope that my battery was not too suffer from these sessions of loading bumpy.

  • BlackBerry Smartphones retro lighting keyboard turn on and off by itself

    I got a new Verizon BBTour today, I had no problem to transfer my BlackBerry Storm 9530. I typed my first email tonight and found that the backlight of the keyboard is disabled while I was typing, I was about to get up to turn on the light of the House, then light keyboard turn around himself, then a few seconds later to stop again. He was turning on and off itself.

    Anyone have this problem? or does anyone know if there is a problem or that I need to set up somewhere? I checked the configuration on the screen/keyboard, this is exactly the same as the storm I. Help, please


    The backlight on the keyboard is automatic and the sensitivity does not always fire when you would like to.  But, if you are in low light and keyboard backlight does not instantly, place your hand on the keyboard and he rip off and the light.  If the sensor captures a bit of light, albeit indirect, it turns off the backlight.

    There is not currently of an option to change this behavior and it is battery.  It is not an irregular operation of the device.
