Cooling trouble with my Toshiba Satellite 5200

  1. Hi,

    I am experiencing a problem with the cooling of my Thosiba Satellite 5200-701.
    The fan started making strage noises and so I decided to open the computer and to clean the fan. All worked fine but after reassembling the system I got the infamous "A problem with the cooling system has been detected" message. Thinking it could only be the fan (maybe damaged by my cleaning) I ordered a spare and mounted it. Unfortunately the new fan doesnt' work either. I tried it separately and it works. What esle could be broken? Could the fan controller on the MB possibly be dead? Does anyone know any solution to this probelm?

    Thank you very much for your help

    Hi and welcome to techspot. What fan are you referring to? Or does it only have one fan...?

    you should double check to make sure that the fan is in fact securely connected, and that its wires are not pinched or interfering with the blades.
