Noise when switching on Tags: Computer Fan Toshiba Laptops Last response: January 24, 2010 12:39 PM in Laptops & Notebooks Share Animante January 24, 2010 11:41:25 AM Hi, My computer Toshiba satellite A85 makes a noise (close to the fan) when switching it on. Does someone knows why and what should I do? I would like to repair it myself. Thank you Cheers More about : noise switching | E-mail me updates | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Animante January 24, 2010 12:39:18 PM Hi again, I think is clear that the problem is the fan. Maybe it needs oil. I was asking myself if it is possile to put oil on it without opening the complete laptop.
