Hello,

The other day I was working on my Toshiba Portege 2010 laptop when suddenly it froze. I then noticed that the top left side was extremely hot, and that the fan wasn't running. Usually the fan comes on not long after the laptop is turned on. I turned it off to let it cool down, and tried restarting it later on in the day. The fan still didn't turn on. I can see that the fan is located on the top left side of the laptop; that's where the air comes out. I'm assuming that something like dust or dirt perhaps blocked the air intake but I have no idea where the intake is located. How should I proceed? The laptop is not under warranty. :tazz:

Your laptop circuit for the fans have fried from to much use. You should get it repaired and install a more powerful fan for better safe keeping.
