i know very little with regards to laptop components, but im replacing the fan unit in my *OLD* toshiba a30 and i wanted to know if there was a way i can test the fan i remove by another means? such as plug it in on a desktop etc?
in short its a double fan unit, and im unsure if one of them is functioning, if i can hook it up on something else to test then i will know.
i understand there may be a voltage difference between desktop and laptop fans however.
suggestions / comments.
ive been told that one of the fans in the unit only turns on at certain points, however i am nearly convinced this is not the case, the only way i can be certain is by testing externally. this will allow me to either just replace the fan unit or give up the laptop for a loss as it will imply that its a internal sensor problem - which i am not qualified to fix and i refuse to pay to get it repaired again.
