Replace a cooling fan

My Toshiba laptop T8oo, fan, has packed up. Can anyone point me to instructions as to how to remove and replace it.

Worked on a few Toshes but not on your model, with the others its just a case of removing the keyboard and the inner cover, you will see the fan, just remove and replace.

You will see it is powered by a two pin plug, just unplug it and remove.

spikeychris. How do you get the key board off,do you start from the top or the bottom. As you can tell I don't want to damage it. Thats why I was looking for a diagrame. I will have a good look at it tomorrow as laptop is at work. Thanks for the support

Sorry cant find a diagram for your particular model, from memory on Toshiba's there are lugs at the bottom so you have to start at the top...could be wrong though its been a while.

Have a play but be careful or wait until someone who owns/use one comes along.

Good luck ..
