I was tasked with a reinstall of Win 10 to a Toshiba Qosimo DX730. During installation, the unit shut off. I assumed over-heat and when I went to set up my trusty external fans to the intake vents (assuming dust build-up), I found they had been blocked for 9 years! The clear, protective tape had never been removed (to be fair, it was invisible). The PC is absolutely pristine and specs are pretty good for the old lady who owns it.
Upon opening the case, I see the fan is not clogged, but not spinning. The plug is a super-micro 4 pin. The part is T000011750. I've been everywhere I can think & cannot find this ****** fan!
Posting in hopes someone here has an idea I haven't thought of to source this. I sent a form to Toshiba 2 days ago- being an OEM, they'll do F-all. One online place is out of stock- not expecting any more. Other online sources are known scam sites. I even went online hoping to find a dead unit just to scab the fan. Nothing.
