Hey guys,
I have a Toshiba Satellite M115, and I was wondering why the it always has its fans running at what seems like full speed whenever it is plugged in, but as soon as I unplug it from the wall, it quiets down. During AC power, the fans are beyond loud, no matter what the computer is doing, even immediately after startup when few programs have been loaded. But during battery power, the sound is barely noticeable under the same conditions. I'm pretty sure that there is something wrong somewhere. Is there any help anyone can provide?

Normally, I'd say that you're running hot. When the heat increases, the fan speed increases. Why it slows down when running off the battery? I don't know. Perhaps a weak battery? To be on the safe side, get a can of compressed air and stick the nozzle in the vents and try blowing the dust and lint out

Ya, you might somehow be overheating with the battery plugged in, try cooling it down while plugged in and see if you have the same issue. It's likely you have a problem with the battery or the AC adapter.
