Re: CPU Fan Location
:>Have a Toshiba Satellite 5205 Series and I'd like to know if the CPU fan is
:>on the top or bottom of this laptop. I may need to replace the CPU fan.
:>System temp is 74c. Have used can of Dust Off to clean in/out ports. Thank
The CPU fan is on the top of the system board. It requires removal of
the top cover assembly to replace it. In other words, you have to
remove the keyboard, lots of screws in the bottom, lots more screws
under the keyboard and disconnect a lot of wires.
I've got one that I bought new in Feb 2003 and it's still going
strong. BTW, if you do this, be sure to also remove the heatsink,
clean it and the CPU and apply some new thermal paste.
