Hi there ... buddy just got an old laptop in horrible shape - we decided to fdisk and all is well - except - yesterday she was describing a lot of anomolies ... eventutally said she had had it on over 8 hours. I told her to turn it off, guessed it had probably overheated.
I know nothing about fans (I am a software nut, not hardware) - but this one does not turn on ever (she said she cleaned it with a qtip and it does move).
Are there special settings I should look for?
(she is not connected to the net to ask herself)
Many thanks

(no help from Toshiba at all - not even a manual available)

And those little fans are hard to find. I needed to replace one on a Dell laptop, and finally found one company that had them in California, in bulk quantites of 100 or more and on back order with no ship date :confused: Just what I needed.......
