is this a floor fan or ceiling fan? since you provided absolutely no information as to the device you are trying to check there is no way to help. the best you can do is to watch the fan and see if it is spinning.

I've used Argus Monitor (https://www.argusmonitor.com/en/index.php). It's not freeware, but you can use it for 30 or 60 days free, something like that.

lizmerrill,

When your Laptop shuts down.
Does the DC IN indicator on the front of the laptop flashing Amber?
Or....
When your Laptop shuts down.
The DC IN indicator is flashing White?

If it is doing either one...
You have a serious problem, and your going to need to bring it to a shop.
Unless you have the tools, and want to try repair it yourself.

SpeedFan, unfortunately doesn't cover all computers.
Startup TOSHIBA PC Health Monitor, and check the status of your Laptop.
{Go to Appendix F-2 in the manual for instructions.}

Here's the manual for your laptop.
