My processor fan keeps coming on?
I just cleaned my processor fan ang heat sink as it was clogged with dust. After i put everything back together the processor fan is coming on every 10-20 minutes or more if the computer is used. It is even coming on during the start up process. This did not happen before cleaning. Is there any chance that i will need to replace the termal paste or have i done something else wrong?
Normally your processor fan should spin 100% of the time.
You probably have something in the Bios controlling the fan.
I don't see anything wrong as long as it spins. But 10-20 minutes before spinning looks excessive to me.
Check your temperatures in the Bios and report back to us.
