    I have five Toshiba laptops, 3 Qosmio x300/x305's an A500 and a A300.

    The 9700m GTS Qosmio works great as it only uses one fan. Temps are good and hasn't given me any troubles. As for the 9800m GTX one, it never spins up it's second fan when you want it to resulting in very high GPU temps! It spins in the BIOS and all that or on boot, but in windows it does not spin at all resulting in temperatures excess of 100 degrees centigrade. I've tried another motherboard and fan, but this occurs yet again. This restricts me from using it. Then we've got the SLI one. It powers on and all that, but shuts itself off as soon as it loads the splash screen! I've tried reflashing the bios and purchasing another motherboard and another SLI gpu, but it does exactly the same thing regardless. Even when I remove the dedicated 9800m GTS SLI from it, it still does this. I really wish I knew what the problem was.

    The a500 works pretty well aside from the kinda worrying 4650m temps. It idles at 50-61 degrees centigrade, and the fan only kicks in during the 60 range.

    The a300 has the same issue, albeit with a 3650.

    I would say my experience on Toshiba laptops would be "mixed". The first Qosmio works great, but the other two have been giving me nightmares just trying to get them to work properly. If that 9800m GTX Qosmio spun up it's second fan in windows, I would be able to use it. I just wish I could find out what the problem is.

    External Switch? Do you think the temp sensors are fried?
