My Toshiba laptop is completely dusted out and I keep it on a dinner plate to keep a consistent air flow. The problem is the fan stops. I know that it is supposed to turn on when needed but it doesn't do that... at least not when I need it the most.
When the fan stops my core temp rose to 100 Degrees... and the fan still would not turn on, and thus the computer shut down.
I have speedfan but it isn't exactly user friendly... all I want is an option that allows me to turn on the fan and KEEP it on. I went into my BIOS and could not any fan options.
