    Fan Not Running on Toshiba Laptop


    Hi

    I have a Toshiba A300 Satelitte laptop. When I start this the fan runs for about 5 seconds and then stops. Subsequently it won't start again and the laptop gets very hot but doesn't shut down. So hot in fact it is not able to be handled. I am worried about a fire. Core temperatures at start up are Core #0 53c and core #1 53C. After running for 15 minutes or so they go up to #0 98c and #1 100c, I have tried blowing out the side grill and van vent and some dust and lint came out but very little. What can I do please?

    I am running Windows 10 32 bit. I am not tech orientated so not confident in swapping out fan which appears complicated having to virtually dismantle laptop to gain access.

    :)

    Fan starts at boot, but does not restart after sleep mode

    I have been using a Toshiba Satellite L655D as a test bed for Windows 10 and I am having fan issues. When I boot the laptop the fan starts in what I would call max mode and stays there. When the machine comes out of sleep mode the fan does not start.
    The Toshiba PC Health utility shows the fan at 90%, but it is not spinning.

    Any settings or drivers I may be overlooking to address this issue? Thanks.

    I have finally updated to the fall update on my laptop - a Toshiba Satellite - but now the laptop shuts off when it boots to the windows home screen. It appears to activate the laptop fan and then shut down. Help Please.

    Fan Not Running on Toshiba Laptop

    Immediately purchase and use a usb-powered external cooling fan assembly [one giant fan or twin fans]. I have one for each laptop. Yes, you can and should clean the laptop fan grills, however, a cooling assembly really helps to extend laptop life -- heat is an enemy of electronics.
