System Warning

Warning: A problem with the cooling system has been detected.

Please turn off the computer immediately, return it for service.

I believe this is not a valid message after talking with Toshiba support and changing the CPU fan. Also, I am having no heat issues, pc works fine and fan is running...

Thanks for the time and effort ;)-

I've got the same problem ... The file that runs is "TWarnMsg.exe", located in C:/WINDOWS/system32/ ... I don't know what starts it but it supposedly runs when the CPU fan stops. Seems weird, I dont know what to do to FIX it though, rather not ignore it... Anyway, simply changing the name of the file will keep it from running...

I also have the problem. I reloaded the default Toshiba setup so the computer looked just like when I bought it. But the error message still occured. So I renamed the error message as you stated. The message doesn't pop up anymore, but I'm still having problems.

After being on my computer for a while, the fan tries to start and it sputters. It'll go for a second, then stop, then go, then stop, over and over several times. Finally the fan starts to work consistantly, but by then my computer speed has decreased by at least half. If I restart my computer after the fan has gotten going, then it restarts and I never have any problems unless the fan turns off again, then I have to go through the same process.

I've taken the cover of my fan to see if any wires or anything were stuck in it, but the fan moves fine. I'm not sure what else to do. Nothing is visably wrong, so I think a setting or something is making my fan think it's broken. The only problem seems to be in starting the fan. Any help would be appreciated very much.

i had this error on a toshiba laptop after it had been to another centre for repair.

Looked at the problem in a different way as it being hardware fault, so stripped laptop down reseated heatsink and fan ran a few tests and hey presto all working.
