Tecra Z50 A-h-13 - fan works half of the time


I got a new Tecra Z50 A-h-13 (i5, 8 GB RAM).

Although the processor is underemployed (approx. 20% of capacity), the fan works half of the time!

When the fan is running the Toshiba PC Health Monitor shows approximately 44% CPU temp. and 36% system temp.

When the fan works not the Toshiba PC Health Monitor shows similar values!

What is it good for?

In my opinion, the fan is not alone. I have not found a possibility to adjust the speed of the fan (PC Health Monitor always shows 45%) or the starting temperature. The current Version of BIOS is installed.

Is it possible to get a SMART fan control?

Best regards




The manual fan control is very limited.
What you can do is to change some parameters in the Windows power options.
Go to the control panel? power options
Select the power plan you use.
Then choose Advanced settings.

In the advanced power settings, you will find the option method Cooing and the performance of the processor.
I recommend you degrade the performance of the max processor at 90-95% and to change the method of passive cooling (both for the battery and plugged)

  • My Satellite A100 GPU fan works 100% all the time

    First: I have the Satellite A100-440 with GeForce Go 7300 and XP Professional (and Ubuntu).

    There is something wrong with thermal control. The first PC Wizard has always shown that the temperature of my GPU is "a very large number" and the fan is runnign 100% all the time (the main problem). Then I installed ATItool hoping he would show the temperature correctly. Well, it worked in part. Now when I check the temperature with PC Wizard, it indicates the temperature of the GPU normally (like 30-40 degrees celsius), but it also shows the GPU Diode temperature it's "a very large number" (as 4.294967E + 09 C) and the fan will operate at 100%.

    I tried to control fans with RivaTuner, but nothing happens.

    So if anyone has an idea how I could continue to solve the problem, I would be very grateful. I don't know if the problem is with the hardware (I could take this service) or with the software...

    Thank you!

    Why are you talking about 'problem' and 'solve this problem?
    I see no problem!
    First of all I'm not all 3rd party applications that monitor temperatures. I'm not 100% sure if these applications provide a good values.

    However, as far as I know the laptop was shipped with Vista and not XP and Linux. You do not use a factory settings. It seems that you have set up the laptop with new applications and you should know that all the software installed and running insists on the CPU and other parts.

    BIOS fan table supports different temperature and cooling of the speed measurements. This means that if the temperature rises to a higher level, the cooling module starts and tries to decreases the internal temperature.

    Usually the temperature depends on the use of the laptop. If several processes of the OS are running in the background, that the CPU performance are high, the temperature rises and the fans start to run. There is nothing unusual about it.

    Furthermore, the dust and debris inside the laptop might have a bad influence on the laptop cooling. From time to time, it is advisable to clean the cooling modules.

    Last but not least the laptop must be placed free on table to ensure the circulation of air correctly. Don't forget that there is enough free space around the laptop.

    Finally, I must say that one of my friends has an A100 and the fans run correctly.
    This means that the cooling modules works with maximum performance while playing games or using graphics software.
    However fans do not work with maximum performance using only common programs like IE software or office.

  • T530 - USB 3.0 acting wacky only works half of the time

    I have to unplug and plug in my external drives multiply times sometimes it comes up as USB device unknown. Also appears as USB 2 instead of 3.0 sometimes.

    Seems to be no rhyme or reason to it under tension of cables and reinstalled the drivers but still the same.

  • Satellite L50 - B fan works even if the CPU load is very low

    I recently bought a Satellite L50 - B and I made a Windows 10 updated. The problem is that the fan works even if the CPU load is very low and the noise bothers me a lot.
    I ordered the video card driver and the system tells methat driver is updated to the latest version.
    I don't know what I can do to change this sad situation.

  • Satellite P305D-S8828 - fan runs most of the time

    On my new Satellite P305D - S8828 17 "fan seems to work most of the time, fled to 01:45 for: dry then on new 50." I have the schema defined on "balanced" & the unit is based on a cooler aluminium frame (no fans on radiator).

    Basically, ventilation under the unit must be very very good compared to flat on a desk. Room temperature. is about 78 F. The unit is basically idling & the fan runs at low speed most of the time. Sometimes it ramps at high speed for about 30 seconds. I can go to Circuit City and check another, but anyone know if this is normal behavior?

    I tried a non-Toshiba notebook & I do not remember the fan being audible to all! This laptop was horrible buttons on the touchpad well, so I prefer this Toshiba.

    I think that the fan runs up constantly when a movie is playing. I heard a change in BIOS to set the fan turns too, but do not know what is available on this platform. Any help is appreciated, because I can still return unit for something else.

    BTW, Wireless G is on, but no traffic running on AC & battery not charging. The fan is sometimes we'RE for: 30 & off at 01:00.
    Thank you


    you already updated your BIOS to the latest version? If not already I highly recommend you to do a BIOS update might improve these things like fan control and other equipment low-level things related.

    Check this [SITE | http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_sc_home.jsp] for a BIOS update that applies to your machine.

  • Button to navigate to another page does not not work properly all the time.


    I'm just starting to explore the ADF, I use Jdeveloper and integrated weblogic server that comes with the IDE.

    I just created a simple application with a welcome page called Main.jsf and then 2 task bounded, streams called SearchStudentsFlow and Studenloansflow, each workflow has a jsf page. The home page has a single button that sends me to the first task flow, SearchStudentsFlow and I can see is the page in that workflow, AwardsSearch.jsf. Also in the AwardsSearch.jsf page I have a button that takes back me to the home page.

    The first problem I have is that when I run the application starting at the home page button in the works of the great homepage the first time, the button send me to the AwardsSearch.jsf , but once I decide to go back to the homepage and then click on the button to go to the first task flow the button does nothing. This happens whenever I decide to return to the home page of any page in my project.

    Also, I copied the entire previous project into a new project and I decided to use the ADF security infrastructure in this new project to create a log in page create users and give them different roles and levels of access.

    I created some users who have access to all pages and all the streams, but when I run the application starts the login page and I login successfully and go to the home page, the button on the home page does not work.

    I don't know why the button sometimes works, but not of others and also I do not know why when I use the login page, the button doesn't work. I don't know if these 2 problems are related or not.

    This is my code in the homepage:

    <?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>

    Thanks in advance

    Play well!

    Now, we understand the problem and can help you solve it.

    The problem is that you dropped the home page in the flow of student loan and place you thinking that you must return to the point of departure, the unlimited workflow. Actually, you don't the sheet flow loan student but simply see the homepage as part of the loan flow. The navigation rules remain those defined in the flow of student loan. Now, when you click on a button to jump to the stream of research, the target is undefined zed you simply stay on the same page, the home page.

    To make your work use case, you set a return action in the flow of student loan that return to the caller, the flow of research which, in turn, will return to his name the workflow without terminals that hold the homepage. Remove the homepage of flow of charge to students. The case of navigation allows to navigate between the button and the new return action.

    In the adf of flow research a wild-card rule that accesses the return operation sends the return flow to the home page. You must remove the sailing time pointing to research prices for the return operation because it can use the same rule of navigation of wild-card then. Then, you add a Bach student load flow navigation rule to the scholarship search page. This navigation is used for the return actionto_searchStudents.

  • Is it possible to resize all work plans at the time the way that you used to be able to do in the configuration of document?

    Wade_Zimmerman wrote:

    @ Wade

    You can recode and a confirm in the loop to determine if you want to resize the work plan current in the iteration of the loop, if no installation then jump her, if yes then prompt for sizes and move forward. Then you can resize regardless of those that you wish as such, some and not others. You can even distinguish with each confirm and ask what work targeted plan by displaying its name. I tested this approach and it seems to work ok, but not super stylish, of course, because if you have tons of work plans, it would be a large number of guests/entry. You could lesson prompts by combining the width/height in a single guest. But then again, even at this time sound just as effective to resize each manually via the window of work plans, probably the same amount of work/time user input processing and the targeting of individual work plans. You could perhaps also create script window for multiple entry for plans of work desired, may be based on the selected and build your dialogue window accordingly, I suppose that, at this time, it would provide a more effective approach for this kind of thing that you seem to be describing.

    But that all said that we would be well beyond the original request that CarlosCanto already so generously filled. He might have some comments on your comments.

  • GeForce 7350LE graphics card fan is running all the time or at certain temperatures?

    I have a HP Pavilion m8147c Media Center with AMD Atlon 64 X 2 Dual Core processor 5600 + 2.80 GHz 3 GB of Ram and run these last time the parser when began to enter the mode "sleep" or something. Sometimes, there is a warning that says something like no signal DVI and one more, but still not long enough to read all this. I am running Vista Home Premium 32 bit. I had just installed a new game but enough course has nothing to do with that I used the system restore and backed up to a time before it was installed. At the beginning it was only when you play, but now, it happens with almost nothing running. This pc was purchased in July 2007 and I have another office but I let my wife use one and I use the other. I opened the folder and clean all the dust but noticed when I booted again that the fan does not work on the video card. I don't know if it lights at certain times or works all the time but I think that's the problem. He was about one hour and lights do not at all. Any information will be appreciated.

    captna wrote: thanks again for the help, I thought it was probably the case but never bothered with graphics cards before today. Any thoughts on an upgrade for not much more money? It was a pretty good pc when I bought it, but it is old, and there should be some video cards better for the same price that would work. I'll add some memory and while I am because the grandchildren need to play their games too. Do you know where to find an upgrade that would be compatible? Yet once again, I appreciate the help.

    Hello captna, here is a link for the specifications of your system. It shows that the system was delivered with a 300 Watt power supply.

    There is not much better performing video cards that work with a 300 Watt power supply. Most require at least a 400 Watt power supply or greater power.

    You could improve the feed and the video card, then possibly 4 new memory modules, but the cost would start to add up. On a system to make a few years about it, I don't know if this would be the way to go, or consider getting a new system.

    You could simply acquire a new video of the same type card and get the system back, because there was, or even try and find a graphics card fan to replace the failed fan. It would be the least expensive option.

    Your system was shipped with the memory 3 X 1 GB modules. It only supports 4 X 1 memory modules, so upgrading the memory would not help all that much. You'd probably remove the existing memory and install 4 new memory modules in order to be compatible with your system memory. It is not recommended to mix memory strips.

    Just some thoughts.
