Tecra fan runs after laptop shuts down

By al ·
I have a Tecra A8-S8314 that works fine and the fan works normally during operation. When I shutdown Windows XP Pro the notebook shuts down and the fan will then start and run at a fast speed. It will continue to run until either the battery goes dead or I hold the power button down for about 5 seconds. We have done a complete recovery including reformatting the hard drive and the problem continues. Any suggestions?

Check your BIOS

Check the Bios settings. Also check the Toshiba website and see if there is a BIOS update available for your laptop.
