My Laptop's Fan

Hi i noticed yesterday my fan isnt working all the time, and my laptop was
getting hot to the point that it burns if you leave your finger on it after
only a few hrs of use. I was wondering if it's normal or if its something
that has to be fixed. I checked the device manager and under "Systerm
Devices" the first it the fan or "ACPI Fan" it says its working correctly
but it's not running continuosly letting my laptop get hot.

Is the fan controlled by a task or something because I have System Mechanic
7 and it disabled a lot of start-up programs that it thought were
unnecessary? It also gets rid of registry problems which im not sure if it
would have to do anything with this but just in case

My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite A205-S4587

Thanks in advance for the help.

It most definitely is not normal. Undo everything you did with System
Mechanic. This is one of the reasons I don't recommend using programs
like that. There's nothing wrong with trimming your startup list - in
fact it is a good idea to do so - but there is no reason not to do it
manually. Never stop something from starting unless you know exactly
what it is and what it does. Find out the answers to that last bit by
Googling for the name of the startup program/process.

Re: My Laptop's Fan

what about registry cleanings? wouldnt that slow down my computer? i already
uninstalled it and undid the only 2 options it gave me, but it previously
had done hundreds more changes. what i can do is reformat the hard drive and
back up my documents/files which is only about 800 mb, would that be the
best way to go since i cant undo what system mechanic did?

Re: My Laptop's Fan

i would say have it look by your tech before changing any setting or
removing any program it could be a loose wire inside.
