Toshiba Satellite Pro 6100 SB - cpu fan failure

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!


I happen to own what many consider the worst laptop made :)  At least
given the normally high expectations from Toshiba.

Reference: /

My CPU Fan appears to have failed on mine.  I still have the original
Toshiba load of Windows XP on the system, and after coming into
Windows XP a dialog comes up saying "System Warning", "Warning:  A
problem with the cooling system has been detected.  Please turn off
the computer immediately, and return it for service."

Joy.  I am from the USA and traveling in South America.  This is my
backup laptop, at least I have a trusty IBM ThinkPad as my main one.

I'm assuming the message means the CPU fan has failed, as I don't hear
it.  Has anyone attempted repair on this as a do-it-yourself job?
