Nope. Unfortunately, you cannot control the Fan RPM in notebooks. SpeedFan is mainly for desktops. Notebooks have a Fan True Value Table, which states a specific fan RPM for a specific temp range.
The fan algorithm is hard-coded into the ACPI, and hidden from the end-user in the BIOS.
I8kfanGUI hacks the BIOS strings in the registry to gain control over the fan. You won't see any programmer spending time on such software these days. Sager/Alienware fan control is probably provided by the OEM, by pressing Fn+F1 for 100% fan on and stuff.
There have been numerous threads on this topic in the past.
Bottom Line: You won't find such an app for a Toshiba, unless you start playing around with DOS Command Lines....
