I purchased a toshiba satellite l675 on Saturday and since Monday I've been getting a cooling system error message. The temperature never goes above 50 degrees so it doesnt seem to be an overheating issue. From what I observe the error message only pops up when the cpu fan turns off. So my two questions are: Is it normal for the cpu fan to turn off and on periodically, and how can I tell if its a hardware or the seemingly common software issue with toshibas?

Wait for confirmation from others (those who use laptops normally) if you like, but I believe that should be common for the CPU fan to slow down to maybe half speed at idle and under light load to make it quieter, prolong battery life, and possibly extend fan like (similar to a desktop), but I do not believe that shutting completely off is normal. I think you may need to bring it back under warranty.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Ok I'll wait for further confirmation. Just for more clarification, I installed SpeedFan to try and get a read on the fans and they're all coming up at 0RPM.On the flipside, the Toshiba Health Monitor program has the fan speed changing between 0 and ~68%
