Sometimes a sacrifice if required. Windows 7 isn't perfect, but in most cases it does its job. I'm sure eventually there will be a patch for this problem (it does seem to be OS-related).

Well, you may want to consider downgrading back to XP then, though a cooling mat should be used on all laptops as they are notorious for poor ventilation, but the choice is up to you.. Good Luck!

Perhaps so in the case of the OP's machine. I wouldn't know about that. However that certainly is not true for Thinkpads (Lenovo). They have many CRU's (Customer Replaceable Units (or parts)) such as keyboard, memory, etc., that require opening the box up, which in the case of my Thinkpad means simply unscrewing 5 Phillips head screws from the back and then the keyboard and front bezel comes off and the interior of the laptop (including the cooling system) is exposed. Going that far is obviously OK, (at least in the case of a Lenovo), since they send out replacement keyboards, memory, wireless cards, etc. under warranty that require the customer opening the box to that point to remove and install such parts. Opening it up further than that, if done in a detectable manner, would probably void the warranty in the case of a Lenovo. Lenovo also expects the customer to be able to remove and reinstall the hard drive in the event of a failure under warranty. They provide videos on their site on exactly how to perform these simple repairs and they do not void the warranty. However, I certainly don't know the policy wrt the OPs box.

I know HP/Compaq laptops they really disapprove of doing anything to, that one guy threatened to void my warranty for installing Windows 7! (RTM!)

Actually, the original suggestion re looking for updated drivers is probably where the problem lies. Perhaps there is a system power driver that needs to be updated, or even just reinstalled after the installation of W7. I found that some of the proprietary drivers for my laptop needed to be reinstalled after installing W7. In some cases, there were updated versions for W7 that were created by the laptop manufacturer and these were not automatically installed by W7.

Hi again,

I've found by mistake the solution... weird solution but it's working.

Toshiba offer 2 kind of firmware, depend the OS you are running: XP or Vista. I don't know why but i've always flash my BIOS with the OS i'm running.

So, i've reinstall my XP copy and flash with my XP bios firmware, my fan was running fast when the temperature getting too hot (fan spin faster when it goes +70oC).

After, i've reinstall Win7 BUT keep the XP bios firmware... and you know what? The fan spin faster when the temperature goes, like XP, +70oC !!!

Just to be sure, i've re-install the original restore disc from Toshiba (with Vista):
- with the XP firmware & Vista: the fan don't spin faster.
- with the Vista firmware & Vista: the fan SPIN faster.

My conclusion is, the Vista bios firmware is working only FOR vista. If i'm running XP or Win7, I need the bios firmware for XP.

Weird, because Win7 is based on Vista and not XP, but the XP bios firmware is running better with Win7 OS.
