Owning a Toshiba laptop C660-1MP.

My problem is the fan that comes on every 10-15 Letter, and goes out.
This is not to bear in areas where it is quiet

Unfortunately you are not the first one who wrote about it. If you have some time I recommend you to check other similar postings about that. There you can find very useful opinions and advices.

As first step I recommend you to change cooling fan method option. You can do this if you open advanced power options in power plan that you use and you will find it in Toshiba power saver.

Set cooling fan option to “battery optimized”.

Can you notice some change?

I adjusted the power supply and still nothing. I would upgrade the BIOS to v1.4, but I'm afraid mine is v1.0 kolko it effectively.

Hi

BIOS update might help in this case but I would also recommend settings the CPU Frequency mode: Always low This can be found in HW setup.

This are my setting proposals:
1st Proposal:
Cooling Method: Maxim Performance
Intel Turbo boost Technology: Enable
CPU Frequency mode: Always low

2nd Proposal:
Cooling Method: Battery Optimized
Intel Turbo boost Technology: Disable
CPU Frequency mode: Always high

Here you can find the single options:

<Setting Method>
Changes in Operating System:
Control Panel --> Power Options --> Change plan settings --> Change advanced power settings --> TOSHIBA Power Saver Settings --> Cooling Method

Changes in Bios (Power Management):
Intel Turbo boost Technology

Changes in Operating System:
TOSHIBA HW Setup --> CPU Frequency mode

If you turn on eco mode using the 'Toshiba eco Utility', does it make a difference?

Correct

The hotter the CPU gets, the faster the fan goes, so turning down the processor speed in the Power Options may be the only solution.
