Directed here to find a cooling performance diagnostic tool for my X205.
Posted: 01-Nov-2009 06:15

I was looking for software to monitor and control the fans in my X205. I have an overheating problem when gaming. The vents are clear, and I have opened the case and cleaned it out. The vents are not blocked. This problem occurred recently. I assumed it was a problem with XP getting corrupted, so I re-installed XP Pro. This did not help. The fan itself works, as I ran it on 5 volts when I opened the case. No problems. It justy won't come on when the GPU gets hot (75 Celcius).

A notebook forum referrred me to this site, and said I should search for a utility called "Cooling Performance Diagnostic Tool", but I can't find anything.

Does anyone know where I can download this utility? I need to monitor and control these fans. I have re-installed the Toshiba system utilities and drivers from the Toshiba site, but the fan does not appear to be controlled.

Anyone got any opinions on this one?

As far as I know such tool does not exist.
Maybe someone told you to check settings in Toshiba power saver settings for option “Cooling method”.

Anyway, I presume you have US notebook model so I must redirect you again. ;)
Check Toshiba US support page under http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_sc_modSel.jsp and pick up info about all available tools and utilities.
You can also visit forum there and discuss with people who have US notebook models.
On this page we discuss in most cases about European models and Europe support.
