    Owning a Toshiba laptop C660-1MP.

    My problem is the fan that comes on every 10-15 Letter, and goes out.
    This is not to bear in areas where it is quiet

    Unfortunately you are not the first one who wrote about it. If you have some time I recommend you to check other similar postings about that. There you can find very useful opinions and advices.

    As first step I recommend you to change cooling fan method option. You can do this if you open advanced power options in power plan that you use and you will find it in Toshiba power saver.

    Set cooling fan option to “battery optimized”.

    Can you notice some change?

    I adjusted the power supply and still nothing. I would upgrade the BIOS to v1.4, but I'm afraid mine is v1.0 kolko it effectively.

    Hi

    BIOS update might help in this case but I would also recommend settings the CPU Frequency mode: Always low This can be found in HW setup.

    This are my setting proposals:
    *1st Proposal:*
    Cooling Method: Maxim Performance
    Intel Turbo boost Technology: Enable
    CPU Frequency mode: Always low

    *2nd Proposal:*
    Cooling Method: Battery Optimized
    Intel Turbo boost Technology: Disable
    CPU Frequency mode: Always high

    Here you can find the single options:

    <Setting Method>
    Changes in Operating System:
    Control Panel --> Power Options --> Change plan settings --> Change advanced power settings --> TOSHIBA Power Saver Settings --> Cooling Method

    Changes in Bios (Power Management):
    Intel Turbo boost Technology

    Changes in Operating System:
    TOSHIBA HW Setup --> CPU Frequency mode

    If you turn on eco mode using the 'Toshiba eco Utility', does it make a difference?

    BIOS does not support. No 'Toshiba eco Utility' for C660-1MP

    The hotter the CPU gets, the faster the fan goes, so turning down the processor speed in the Power Options may be the only solution.
