Customer Question

My Toshiba laptop recently has warnings popping up that the cooling system is not working well and to shut down and bring the laptop to a computer shop for maintenance. I am overseas far from any reliable place for this. I see that others have had this problem and they suggest downloading a Toshiba app that will monitor the cooling system and allow for fixing a slow, lazy fan. However, my laptop will shut down if it gets too hot before I successfully go through the process.
