Toshiba 5200 fan

Recommended Posts

After runnign for about 5min, I get a message saying that there is a cooling problem and to shut down. I can't hear the fan running so I guess it's stuffed.

Does anyone have a soft copy of a repair manual for this model?

Any advice on how to get to the fan and replace it would be great.

Thanks in advance.

Update: Just found the link in the forums!

Best place to get a new fan?

What a coincidence mine broke down last night too. It was buzzing lately, I tried checking myself by disassembling but nothing I could do. Anyway I called service today an ordered a new one with a high price of $140 :) I don't have time to search around for a compatible fan, I need computer working again ASAP.

Check out this link, US$65 for a fan module.

Is the fan hardware or software controlled?

Is it possible that I've missed or poorly loaded drivers/apps?
